Add Textile Pens and Paints to Your Order to get Drawing
It’s important to note, and this is crucial to your child’s creative process, that not all pens and paints are created equal! Some will bleed into the material or just scrape right off. Others will just destroy your blinds.
Thankfully we can supply you with textile pens and textile paints, perfect for colouring and drawing on your blinds. They’re designed to draw perfectly on textiles without damaging them. We’ll warn you just so you know, but it is permanent, obviously! That’s the point of blinds you can draw on. You’ll want to limit the permanent drawings to your PVC rollers however, so be sure to store the pens/paint in a safe place when they’re done drawing, or your whole home may end up a canvas.

Benefits of Creative Roller Blinds
They Become Personalised Roller Blinds
Those precious drawings your children show off to you are mementos in their own right, as precious as any photograph. So even when they do draw all over your walls it melts your heart just that little bit. But with PVC roller blinds you can incorporate your child’s drawings into the design of their room, with blinds unique to their room! Use stencils to draw and colour in animals, rocket ships and much more, or give them the freedom to hand draw their favorite things, their family, or what they want to be when they’re older.
They Promote Creativity and Mental Development
Drawing is a create way for children to develop their cognitive skills, as well as for them to visualise what they are thinking! It keeps the mind active, and encourages the growth of their imagination. Imagination is super important for children, as it builds upon their independence and creativity. Drawings are also a great way for children to express their emotions, dreams and desires. A teacher or child psychologist will often look at children’s’ drawings to assess their mental development and whatever mood they may be in.
You can join in the fun
Creative Roller Blinds are an opportunity to join in the fun with your children! Make it a bonding activity for the whole family to join in, where you can all join in drawing or painting on your new white PVC blinds. This gives you the opportunity to make precious memories as well as colourful blinds you all played a role in making.
Colour is Important for Your Child’s Growth
Colour is crucial for your child’s imagination and cognitive development. We start teaching them colour associations from a young age, and using colour in their bedroom you help to aid in these associations. You can also help to aid in the formation of their personal tastes; if your child loves pink, putting pink in their environment will improve their happiness. So when your child is drawing on their new creative roller blinds, make sure they have a lot of colours to choose from.

How to Measure your Blinds
How to measure Inside (Recess) blinds:
- Ensure that the recess your blinds is going into is not obstructed in any way so the blind can hang freely when fully extended. Look out for protruding window handles and tiles!
- Verify you have 70mm inside top wall recess available for the blind head rail to be mounted onto – refer to illustration to the left.
- Measure at various places (J,K,L) as illustrated and input the shortest width dimension.
- Measure at various places (G,H,I) as illustrated and input the longestshortest drop dimension.
- Verify you have 70mm inside top wall recess available for blind head rail to be mounted onto. ( Z )
Note: We will make your blind to fit into the recess perfectly. Do not make any deductions to the measurements as our factory will make the allowances required for recessed blinds.
How to Measure your Blinds
How to measure Outside (Facefix) blinds:
- Decide how much you want to overlap the blind on all sides - we recommend this should be at least 50mm - 100mm each side in most instances.
- Carefully measure the width of D, E and F (see the diagram) and the drop from A, B and C.
Types of Blinds
Blinds come in two different kinds, which will suit different needs. Do you want the blind to fit inside the window (Recess) or outside (Facefix)?
Outside (Facefix) blinds are easier to install, ideal if you want to hide features around the window and does not require exact measuring.
Inside (Recess) blinds provides a neat appearance, but requires exact measuring and a top recess large enough to accommodate the size of the head rail.
