Q. Do roller blinds keep heat in?
A. If warmth is what you’re after, we would recommend having a thermal backing on your blinds. Because 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. First, measure up and we’ll make them fit, first time, no trimming necessary!
Q. Can roller blinds be cleaned?
A. Yes, you can wash your roller blinds with a damp cloth. Learn more here.
Q. Are there many different colour options available for blind draw cords or toggles?
A. We find that most people go for neutrals, which are more stylish, so we stick 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. With vertical blinds, you can get chainless option which is safer for children. We also have a clip restraint accessory for our roller blinds, so you can put the cord well out of reach.
Q. Can you get mould resistant bathroom blinds?
A. Yes, roller blinds can be coated in a mould resistant coating which makes them suitable for high moisture environments. The same treatment also makes them fire-resistant. All our roller blind fabrics are resistant to mould, making them ideal for high moisture environments such as bathrooms or kitchens. We seal using an ultrasonic cutting table, so the join is completely airtight.
Q. Are there different fabric weights for roller blinds?
A. Yes, Home Vision Blinds offers three fabric densities:
Sunscreen weight which offers UV protection for furniture. This weight is lightly woven, so you can still see through to the outdoors.
Sun filter weight creates a ‘rice paper’ effect where you can only see silhouettes.
Blockout fabric is our heaviest weight which is 100% opaque and provides complete privacy. This is the best choice for bedroom blinds if you’re a light sleeper or shift worker. There is also the option to add an extra thermal backing layer, which makes them effective against heat-loss during the winter!
Q. Is there a choice in slat size for Vision Wood Venetian blinds?
A. No, for practical reasons, we only offer Wooden and Vision Wood 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 the wooden blinds?
A. Our wooden blinds are available in a choice of 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 types of window covering – roller blinds, Venetian blinds, vertical blinds and sunscreen/sun filter blinds keep us very busy and we have no immediate plans to diversify into Roman blinds.
Q. Can you make blinds with fabric I supply?
A. Sadly, no. In order to keep the standard of our Home Vision blinds consistently good, we are very particular about which suppliers we use and have meticulously tested their fabrics so we know how they perform. If we are unfamiliar with the fabric source, we wouldn’t be happy to guarantee the finished product.
