Bottom Up Roller Blinds Fitted in London Victoria

Bottom Up Roller Blinds Fitted in London Victoria

Bottom up blinds also referred to as upside down blinds or reverse blinds. They work by rolling up from the bottom of the window to the top of the window using a tension pulley system. The blind can be stopped at any desired point using a cleat. They are perfect for windows at street level or bathroom windows where you want privacy without blocking the light.

Roman Blind and Pelmet Fitted in Fulham

Roman Blind and Pelmet Fitted in Fulham

Roman blinds look very simple from the front, falling in a series of level folds to the sill. But behind the streamlined pleats, a clever system of rods, slipped into tape casings at the back of the blind, holds the folds straight.

Crisply pleated into neat horizontal folds, Roman blinds have the pared down, functional look that’s perfect for a modern home and is economical on fabric too.

Roman Blinds are easily raised and lowered by pulling or releasing cords; these cords run through pockets in the taped casings. Roman blinds hang completely flat when lowered, so they use very little fabric.

The right blind, correctly fitted, will make a big difference to the look of your room.  Contact me if you require a fitting service.

How to Measure for Blinds in Simple Steps

How to Measure for Blinds in Simple Steps

Before starting, decide whether you want your blinds in the recess or outside the window.
For a neat fit that blocks out the light choose to fit your blinds inside the recess. For windows that are not straight or have lots of obstructions choose to fit your blinds outside the recess. This way you will be sure of a perfect fit for your blind.

Blinds inside the recess – Recess measurement

Inside recessWidth – Measure the inside width of the window at the top middle and bottom. Use the narrowest width measurement.

Height – Measure the height of the window at the left, centre and right. Use the shortest height measurement to the nearest millimetre

 

Blinds outside the recess – Exact measurements

outside recessWidth – To minimize light leakage it’s recommended that the blind overlaps the window recess by least 50mm each side.

Height – When measuring the height take into account the required space for the mounting bracket, a flat surface of a minimum 70mm is advisable.

 

 

Things to Remember

Always use a steel tape measure for accuracy
Measure in centimeters and round each measurement to the nearest 0.1cm.
Measure all windows, even those that appear to be the same width and height.
Remember to specify ‘Recess’ or ‘Exact’ size
Look out for any obstructions such as window handles, tiles, dado rails etc and take their position into account if necessary.
Measure twice to avoid a costly mistake.
