Want to know how to clean roller blinds or if you can get mould-resistant blinds? We answer these questions and more. Here are some of the most frequently asked questions by our customers.

Q. Do roller blinds prevent heat loss?
A. If warmth is what you’re after, we recommend having a thermal backing on your blinds. Since they are made-to-measure for your windows, they’re more effective at keeping the warmth in.

Q. Can roller blinds be cut to size?
A. All our roller blinds are custom-made to order. Let us know the required measurements and we’ll make them fit; no trimming is necessary!

Q. Can roller blinds be cleaned?
A. Yes, you can wash your roller blinds with a damp cloth. Learn more about how to clean roller blinds.

Q. How many different colour options are available for blind draw cords or toggles?
A. We find that most people tend to go for more stylish neutrals, so we’ve stuck with white, ivory, grey, and black.

Q. I’m worried about child safety with blind cords or chains. Are there any child-safe blind options available?
A. Yes. Our vertical blinds have a chainless option which is safer for children. Otherwise, we have a clip restraint accessory for our roller blinds to keep the cord out of reach.

Q. Can you get mould-resistant bathroom blinds?
A. Yes. Roller blinds can be coated in a mould-resistant coating that makes them fire resistant and suitable for high-moisture environments such as bathrooms or kitchens. We seal our mould-resistant blinds using an ultrasonic cutting table, so the join is completely airtight, preventing any humidity or moisture from escaping.

Q. Do you offer different fabric weights for roller blinds?
A. Yes, Home Vision Blinds offers three fabric densities:

  • Sunscreen weight offers UV protection for furniture. This lightly woven fabric allows outdoor visibility.
  • Sun filter weight creates a ‘rice paper’ effect, letting in a moderate amount of light and silhouette features.
  • Blockout fabric, our heaviest weight, is 100% opaque and provides complete privacy. This is the best choice for bedroom blinds if you’re a light sleeper or shift worker. You can also add an extra thermal backing layer to prevent heat loss during the winter.

Q. Is there a choice in slat size for Visionwood Venetian blinds?
A. No, for practical reasons, we only offer wooden and Visionwood Venetian blinds in 46mm slat size. We find that most of our customers are satisfied with this.

Q. Do you do custom colours or stains for wooden blinds?
A. Our wooden blinds are available in white, alabaster, and natural cedar wood. We don’t offer custom colours or stains at this stage.

Q. Do you make Roman blinds?
A. Not at this stage. Our four window coverings – roller blinds, Venetian blinds, vertical blinds, and sunscreen/sun filter blinds - keep us very busy. We have no immediate plans to diversify into Roman blinds.

Q. Can you make blinds with the fabric I supply?
A. Sadly, no. To maintain high and consistent standards of our Home Vision blinds, we are very particular about our suppliers and have meticulously tested their fabrics to know how they perform. We cannot guarantee the quality of the finished product if we are unfamiliar with the fabric source.
