What is the average lifespan of a roller blind?

Several factors determine the lifespan of a roller blind. On average, we say a double roller blind should last around 7 years. Behind single-pane glass, the fabric generally has a shorter lifespan. This is because a single piece of glass transmits a large amount of ultraviolet rays, which evaporates the plasticizers in the fabric.

Roller blinds typically have a service life of between 8 and 10 years. How long your shade actually lasts depends on the type of fabric, where the shade is hung, and how you continue to maintain your shade or what you do with it.

Why choose custom roller blinds?

1. Longer service life

Customization lasts longer. Custom roller blinds are of high quality. These parts are better than off-the-shelf roller blinds, so custom roller blinds last longer. You also have a warranty on your custom roller blinds, so if something goes wrong, it will be fixed or you will receive a new product.

2. Close-fitting

Customized roller blinds can be produced with millimeter precision. For example, nearly every fabric can make suitable roller blinds. Customized roller blinds can also be made wider and larger than off-the-shelf roller blinds. Combined with minimum gaps and maximum finish.

3. Quality and appearance

  • The custom roller blinds are of very high quality. This ensures that the roller blinds have a beautiful and luxurious look and that the product is durable. The fabric is thicker so it is less likely to wrinkle. The bottom slats are also heavier so the roller shade hangs nice and tight.

4. The convenience of customizing roller blinds

  • You can request color samples from the home of the color and fabric you are interested in. Then you need to measure the size. In most cases, you will receive your order for free. Then you just need to hang up the order.

5. Luxury: tailor-made

Custom roller blinds for a luxurious look. The fabric is laser cut to size so there is no fraying. Also, you can choose from different options to ensure your roller blinds look better. For example, think of a metal chain around a reel or a luxury cassette tape.

How should I care for my roller blinds?

  • Proper maintenance is important and a condition of the warranty. There are a number of things you can do to ensure your roller blinds will last.

You can clean roller blinds by wiping them with a slightly damp cloth. Avoid scrubbing or rubbing vigorously, and don’t use detergents. Roller blinds cannot be washed in a washing machine.

For double roller blinds, it is important to take into account that the fabric is very sensitive. Curtains can be scrubbed with a soft brush. For some fabrics, it can also be wiped with a damp cloth.

Never hang roller blinds too close to heaters to prevent shrinkage. Especially the curtains are relatively damp after cleaning, it is best not to dry them on the heater.

Second, be careful about controlling the chain. Fortunately, if it breaks (for example, if the cat has played with it), you can easily replace it.
