Where can you fit day and night blinds?

Much like roller blinds, day and night roller blinds are incredibly versatile. Each set is made to measure in-house, using your exact measurements. This ensures proper window coverage for privacy and light management. With their dual-layer design, these blinds are slightly thicker than classic roller blinds. Therefore, they are best suited to windows with deeper recesses to prevent unwanted bulk. Saying this, day and night window dressings can easily be fitted onto different types of windows, including French and bay.

Their unique construction makes these blinds best suited to spaces where accurate light and privacy management are key. The opaque panel offers complete privacy and a solid barrier against unwanted light. The voile layer filters light, keeping the room light enough to see without it becoming overbearing. For both of these reasons and more, day and night blinds are a popular choice for receptions, kitchens and conservatories. They also work well in offices, eliminating glare from computer screens and ensuring productivity remains key.

Installation is easy, with all of our blinds coming with full fitting instructions. All you need is a drill, a pencil and 10 minutes to take back control over comfort. Consistently popular for busy households, day and night roller blinds can be fitted both inside and outside of the recess. With a wide range of colours available in our online store, they promise to complete your home with impressive ease.

How to Measure For Day and Night Blinds

Our comprehensive measuring instructions cater to a wide range of window types where day and night blinds can be installed, from bay windows and conservatories to standard windows. These carefully crafted guides aim to alleviate any apprehension you might have while wielding a tape measure.

There’s advice on measuring for inside recess mount (recess size) and outside recess mount (exact size)

Recess Size: The majority of blinds are fitted inside the window recess covering the space where the window sill sits. Our instructions help with allowing for handles on uPVC windows which need to be taken into account.

Exact Size: When hanging the blind on the outside recess of the window you need to ensure the fabric sits outside of the window space. Similarly when measuring for bay windows or conservatories exact size is the best option.

Help on measuring for every window type is available here.

    How To Clean Day and Night Roller Blinds?

    Keep it simple is our best advice when cleaning any blind. For day and night roller blinds the fabrics are quite delicate so regular maintenance of the fabric is important.

    To prevent the build-up of dust, firstly wind the blind all the way down then starting from the roll at the top gently wipe the fabric with a damp cloth. When finished leave it all the way down and open the window for an hour or so for it to dry.

    Blind mechanisms are best maintained using a silicone spray to and the control chain wiped down with a damp cloth. If there is more persistent dirt on the chain, then adding some warm soapy water to the cloth will be fine.
