IntroductionIf DIY is not your forte then perfect fit blinds may offer a solution to your binds need. They are simple to assemble, require no drilling and can be fitted within minutes. The perfect fit system is designed exclusively by Louvolite and their revolutionary idea has meant that you will no longer have the worry of dangling operating cords or the though of a small breeze from an open window moving your blind knocking all your belongs off your window sill.There are many different types of perfect fit blind – Venetian, roller, pleated and wood Venetian but in this article we are only going to focus on perfect fit roller blinds .Description;The best way to describe a perfect fit roller blind is that it is a roller blind housed within a perfect fit frame. The perfect fit frame consists of 4 Aluminum sidepieces, which are joined together with corner joints, which are held together with 4 screws on each corner. The frame is secured to the existing window frame with brackets that simply side in-between the windows glass and the beading. The already assembles frame simply clicks into place when inserted into the window frame there is one difference between the perfect fit roller blinds compared to the perfect fit venetian, pleated and wood venetian blinds and that is that instead of having a frame head rail a roller container head rail is used so that when the blind is fully risen that the material is not exposed.Measuring for a perfect fit blindThe measuring up for a perfect fit roller blind is just as simple as fitting the blind itself. The only measurements that are needed are the width of the window that you can see through and the drop. For people that are not overly confident on their ability to measure the easiest way to ensure accurate measurements is to measure the top, centre and bottom of the window glass that you can see through and keep the smallest measurement. To measure the required drop for the perfect fit blind the same method applies, measuring the left, centre and right drop and again keeping the smallest measurement. The only other measurement you need is the depth of the window, taking this measurement is very simple, like before if you are not very confident, measuring multiple corners will help to ensure accurate measuring. To measure the depth you need to put a straight flat edge – like a ruler across the corner of your window frame that you are fitting the perfect fit blind into. Then measuring up from the window glass to the underside of the ruler take a measurement. Typically windows measure between 12mm-30mm in depth.

Another aspect to keep in consideration is the location of any handles on

your window. A window handle can obstruct you fitting the frame however this does not mean that if you have a handle on your window then you cannot have a perfect fit frame. The following rules of thumb occur for different beadings to space to handle. On a square beading the most amount of distance between the edge to the window frame where the beading starts and the edge of the handle closest to the window glass is 25mm. on any other type of beading then anything as low as 6mm clearance is needed. If you are ever unsure about this then you should ask for a sample piece of frame that way to can put the frame onto the window and see your self if there is a clearance. If there isn’t a clearance that is not a problem any experienced blind sales person will be able to recalculate the width or drop of your window to accommodate for the handle being on your window.Perfect fit roller blindsperfect fit roller blinds are ideal in a house that may fell cold at times, the perfect fit roller blind when down will offer a more cozy feel to a room and on the blackout and insulating fabrics will offer some extra insulation. The perfect fit roller blind are great in a house with children, their design means that there are no dangerous cords dangling around which could be hazardous to young children.When considering buying a perfect fit roller blind the main considerations are the width and drop of the window and whether or not your chosen fabric is able to go to the desired width/drop. Because of the thickness and the perfect fit roller container a thick material would not be able to do a full length door blind as the material will not fit in the roller containment area on the perfect fit frame. There are many different materials that are available from the perfect fit roller fabrics; they range from delicate voiles to sumptuous suede materials. In terms of colour you have just as much selection as in the feels of materials colours would start from whites working their way through creams, naturals, caramels, chocolates, yellows, reds, blues, greens, grey’s and blacks not only is there a huge choice in colours but there is a wide variety of patterns to choose from. Most roller blind fabrics now a days is treated so that the fabric which can frequently be exposed to intense sunlight will not fade as quickly as they once did. So fabrics come with fire-retardant properties and most are easily cleaned, splash proof.Concluding pointsperfect fit roller blinds are a great blind to have in any room which needs and instant cozier feel, the bright colours that are found in the fabric choices are great for kids and the patterns can turn your windows in a feature within any room. The perfect fit system will compliment any window no matter how big or small, however it is worth mentioning that the fabric selection may be greatly reduced when looking at full-length door blinds. nopicture-3821914
