Sash windows are an attractive feature of any house and can be part of the reason why a property is purchased due to their characterful period look. However, if you’re worried as to whether blinds can work with sash windows and worry that you’ll spend so much time wrestling them closed it’s not worth the bother – you couldn’t be more wrong.

Roller or Roman blinds are the perfect blind for your sash windows. They allow for complete coverage, or if you need to open the window, partial coverage.

They can block out light, give you some well-deserved privacy, and give the very best in complete coverage in a way that curtains do not.
Roller Blinds – Elegant and Versatile
Roller blinds are extremely versatile and not only come in a wide range of materials, patterns and colours, but also blackout material. This blackout material can block harmful UV sun rays and keep out light, which is ideal if you’re trying to get to sleep during long those summer nights, or perfect for kids when you’re trying to get them to stay in bed, which is so hard when it’s light and the sun is streaming in.
