The Best Roller Blind: Our Picks
Buying and rating criteria for roller blinds
The selection of available roller blinds does not make the choice any easier. However, it is worth investing a little more time in roller blinds without drilling. A properly selected material is not only practical, but also offers a perfect complement to the interior design of the room. But what criteria should you look for?
The most important criteria at first glance
Roller blinds for windows are mainly available in standard sizes. But ordering made-to-measure is also easy today. To find out the optimal size, the width and length of the window pane is measured in the window frame.
The type function
Depending on the requirements and the selected room, the roller blinds should fulfil different functions. While in the bathroom and bedroom or children's room the selected roller blinds are more for privacy and darkening, those in the living room and kitchen are more for decorative purposes.
One of the factors in the decision is the material. There are natural materials such as cotton, linen or bamboo and synthetic materials such as polyester, nylon or viscose. The natural materials are more delicate and more suitable for decorative purposes. Synthetic materials are more practical and serve as room darkening, sun protection, thermal or heat protection, but also as insect protection.
Maintenance should not be complicated. Most roller blinds are very easy to care for, only those made of natural materials are less resistant to the sun and deform due to incorrect care. The easiest roller blind to care for is pleated.
Outside and inside
Roller blinds are becoming more and more popular and are therefore also produced for outdoor use. Very suitable for rented flats. Also for windows where drilling is not possible or not desired.
