Roller Blinds: These blinds are cut pieces of different types of fabric, rolled onto a rod and placed horizontally on the top of the window, which can be rolled down and rolled up using either a beaded chain or a remote which is controlled by using a motor. The rod and blind can be concealed inside a cover that has appropriate aesthetic looks making the blinds unobtrusive. When unrolled, the design or color of the blind fabric will unfurl as a single piece of cloth, which if rightly chosen to blend with the theme of the room can create wonders to the overall aesthetics of the room.

These blinds can also be completely moved up to the window top by pulling another thread which connects to the most bottom slat.
