What are the Benefits of Roller Blinds?

Window coverings significantly impact both the style and feel of a room, as well as being essential for a good night’s sleep. Since roller blinds have many good qualities including attractive design, flexibility and durability, they are generally recognised as one of the best choices for any window. Some benefits of roller blinds include:

What are the Benefits of Roller Blinds?

Attractive design

Roller blinds offer clean, simple lines that sit flush against the wall or window to which they are installed. From block colours to floral patterns, there’s a wide  range  of different designs available to add a touch of style to the room. Seeking the help of a blinds expert will ensure a bespoke service tailored to your exact requirements. Here at Sunstopper Blinds, our blinds are made to measure and the (free) measuring service provided by our team ensures a bespoke experience for a flawless fit.


With no extra installation, the blinds operate using hardware that is inherently safe and poses no threat to children or pets. As such, Luxaflex roller blinds can be used in any room –  including bathrooms, living rooms and kitchens, as well as the bedrooms of young children.


Due to their simple, high-quality design, roller blinds open and close easily and wear very well. Luxaflex blinds are especially durable as they feature strong aluminium barrels, high quality fabrics, and rigorously tested operating systems approved by the British Blind and Shutter Association.

Low budget

As a cost-effective solution to privacy needs, light control, durability and child-safety, roller blinds come as an attractive option to many different rooms and requirements, especially if you’re on a budget. Additionally, if your room is in need of a refresh design-wise, you can instantly enhance any existing room by simply replacing old, worn out curtains or blinds.

Easy to operate and low maintenance

Some blinds are heavy and difficult to operate, and repair can be expensive if they break in the process. Fortunately, the roller blinds we offer are made by Luxaflex, all of which are handmade by experts who have over 60 years’ experience. As such, the blinds operate seamlessly using bead chains or spring roller styles.

Roller blinds are also easy to clean; simply wipe them down with a damp cloth – perfect for any busy home environment, especially those with pets or young children.

Blackout blinds

If you work nights, have young children, or just struggle to sleep with the glare from street lamps, roller blinds come in a blackout version. The roller blind is fitted with a high quality blackout lining, meaning all light is blocked out, ensuring you get a peaceful sleep. Not only this, but blackout blinds are particularly well-suited to bathrooms too, as not even silhouettes or shadows can be seen through to the other side.

Having a thicker covering on your windows can also reduce energy bills, as well noise from the outside world – particularly helpful if you live near main roads or barking dogs, or if your neighbours are known to mow their lawns at 8am on a Sunday!
