Things You Should Know About Different Roller Blinds
Are your roman blinds plain and boring? Are you ready for a change? Or has your style changed since you chose those blinds? Luckily, there is a huge range of options available for you to choose from when it comes to custom roman blinds. Customising your blinds and making your windows a feature has never been easier… Here’s how:
Customising Roman Blinds
It’s as simple as taking your plain Roman blinds from their place on your windows and transforming them with new fabric. This can be a plain colour that matches the new look in your home, or maybe you’re looking for a graphic, patterned fabric. It’s all up to you. By customising roman blinds yourself, anything is possible, the only limit is imagination.
Here’s what you’ll need:
Existing roman blinds – taken off the wall
Hardware and tools to remove and install your roman blinds
New fabric for customising roman blinds
Iron and an ironing board
Hot glue gun with glue sticks
A large working area
How to Create Custom Roman Blinds:
- The first thing you need to do is remove your existing roman blinds from the wall. This will be your base for your new blinds.
- You will need to ensure that you have purchased enough fabric to cover these blinds with an inch of allowance around the entire piece and enough for the Velcro piece that goes across the top.
- Ensure you wash and iron your fabric, this will make it easier to work with and will look better when the roman blinds are rehung. Place your fabric flat over your working space and then lay your open blinds on top. If there is a decorative strip, this should be removed as you will cover that later.
- Make sure your fabric is wrinkle-free under your blinds and then you can start wrapping the edges of your new fabric over the back of the blind. It’s like wrapping up a very thin present.
- It’s then as simple as hot gluing the fabric all the way around the edge.
The job of customising your roman blinds is already well on its way. With the smaller decorative pieces that you have removed you will need to do the same as you did with the large blinds. When you do these, make sure you iron the edges to get a smooth, clean line. Before hanging your blinds, be sure to fold them in the way they would fold as if they were hanging and drawn all the way up. Iron these edges into the fabric to make it clean.
There you have it. You have just learned that with a little DIY knowhow and some patience you are capable of customising roman blinds. Of course, if you don’t own roman blinds, you can purchase some from Complete Blinds.

Your home has a personality, just like you. The best way to convey this ‘personality’ is through the different aesthetic features. Customisation allows for creativity and fresh ideas. Your house doesn’t need to look boring. Blinds are an effortless way to express fun, vibrancy, and style.
