Why choose custom-made roller blinds
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.

Frequently asked questions
Blockout roller blinds are very effective at blocking out light. This makes them very popular for bedrooms as they help create a high-quality sleep environment. However, it’s important to remember that blockout roller blinds still have gaps around the sides that can let in light and therefore aren’t 100% darkening. If you’re looking for added insulation as well, consider a thermal roller instead. These are blockout blinds but with the additional benefit of a thermal backing, holding in more heat when you need it.
Blockout and blackout are the same and the fabric will block 100% of light, while dimout blinds block between 60 and 99% of light.
Yes! Sleeping in a dark environment helps your body produce melatonin, also known as the sleep hormone. Conversely, light tends to trigger cortisol production which keeps you awake. A dark room is a good thing!
No, you can’t see through blockout or thermal blinds from outside, meaning they are very private even at night!
