Bedroom with window and Russells blockout roller blinds

Blockout roller blinds

Perfect for providing full privacy and light blocking at night, blockout roller blinds are great in bedrooms, helping you get a great night’s sleep, or in media rooms, preventing screen glare on TVs or monitors. Made from materials that are fully opaque, our blockout roller blinds will block almost all light, especially when fitted correctly. Available in a range of colours and patterns, there is something to suit any home décor. There’s even the option to motorise them for cordless operation, ideal for keeping pets or small children safe.

Features & benefits

Pair with sheer curtains

Use a blockout roller blind for darkness at night with sheer curtains drawn during the day to filter light and retain privacy. This allows you the practicality of blinds with the softness and style of curtains.

Inside or outside mount

Fitting your blinds inside the window frame offers the cleanest look, but your window recess needs to be deep enough. Fitting the blind outside and just above the frame is practical and flexible, suiting just about any window.

Front or back roll

This refers to the direction the blind comes off the roll – either from the front or the back. For better energy efficiency and light blocking choose back roll so it creates a tighter seal against the wall. Front roll hides the componentry better but leaves a bigger gap, so it best for an inside mount.

Why choose custom-made roller blinds

Although some windows are a ‘standard’ size, there is still plenty of variation between sizes and many windows don’t fit the regular range of sizes available with readymade blinds. Getting your roller blinds custom made, means they’ll be cut and made to the exact measurements of your actual windows, meaning you’ll get the right fit every time.
