How do I know if roller blinds are a fit for my home?
First of all, roller blinds can be custom ordered to fit nearly any size window, so you’ll never have to worry about them actually fitting your windows.
Many homeowners find roller blinds to be a convenient way to add privacy and style to their home décor. Roller blinds will offer your new home a great option in window coverings. With low maintenance, low cost, motorisation, and flame retardant fabrics that will actually help to lower your heating and cooling costs. Roller Blinds are a solution that is suited to all homes and offices.
They’re also extremely easy to operate. Simply pulling up or down on the blinds can retract or unfurl them to give you the privacy you are looking for. Motorised options are available through our economically priced Automate and Somfy motor brands. Both the Automate and the Somfy brands offer the Li-ion rechargeable battery motors and the more traditional hard-wired option. These can be operated via handheld RTS remote controls, smart devices, and wall switches.

What are the key benefits of roller blinds?
After all, there are a variety of different window treatment options out there on the market. (And we know a thing or two about window treatments!)
- Easy operation: Whether you go with a pull chain or a motor, they’re easy to unfurl when needed.
- Low maintenance: Unlike slatted shutters, for example, roller blinds don’t need to be dusted regularly.
- Durable use: With few moving parts, these blinds are sure to last even with frequent usage.

- Energy efficient: The customizable nature of the fabrics allows you to control how much light and heat you let in and out.
Do roller blinds take a long time to install?
When it comes to window treatments, roller blinds are among the easiest or most straightforward to install. Of course, if you go with a motorised option, you may be looking at a little longer for the assembly to be completed. On average, an experienced installer will take no more than 30 minutes per window to install your roller blinds.
Which reminds us to point out: while you can attempt to install your own blinds, it isn’t recommended for a number of reasons. First, you could void any warranties you get with your new window treatments by installing them improperly by yourself. There’s also the level of skill required to hang the blinds evenly and level within each window frame without damaging the housing or the frame itself. You’ll want to make sure you go with the pros, and that any quote you get for custom blinds also includes the installation.
How much do roller blinds cost in Melbourne?
Which brings us to the next question we’re often asked: what about cost?
There are so many different factors that affect this that it’s hard to provide an estimate. For example, different size windows will require different amounts of material, which then affects the price.
The actual material you choose the blinds to be made out of will also affect the price, with sheer or light filtering often being a bit more affordable than opaque or custom fabric installations. Add motorisation or automated components, and the price might continue to climb. That said, you can expect to spend between $200-$400 per window for your blinds.

Frequently Asked Questions About Roller Blinds in Melbourne
Do blackout blinds have to be black?Delux Blinds2022-07-05T23:06:31+10:00
Not necessarily. They get their name from the function they serve: to block out all of the light of the sun so that you can have a dark, or near black, room. They’re most common in bedrooms where you’ll want to be able to have comfortable and adequate darkness to sleep in. While black is a common colour in blackout blinds, you can also find them in a variety of fabric colours including white.
What’s the difference between front roll and back roll blinds?Delux Blinds2022-07-05T23:06:17+10:00
This has to do with the direction that the blinds roll in when they are retracted or opened up. Front roll. Blinds roll forward into the room whereas back roll blinds come from the backside of the roll itself.
