Due to their simple functionality and easy application, Roller Blinds are the most popular modern blind type in Australia.

When not in use, they simply gather into pleats and stack at the top of your window when raised and when lowered, they lie flat against your windows, offering excellent control over lighting and privacy. This makes Roman Blinds a popular choice for bedrooms due to their class and elegant look.
