I’m not a fan of curtains. I don’t know why but I don’t get those floor length things and I HATE the kind that puddles on the floor. Sorry if you have them and I offended you but to me they’re just dust (and pet hair) collectors.
I did need something for the windows on the first floor though. 1) Because the sun is really bright at this side of the house 2) Because it’s alright without anything in summer but come winter these windows will look like pitch black squares and 3) Because of privacy reasons, I sleep on this floor in this open space after all.
I love the simplicity of roller blinds. I always have. My problem in this house has been finding long enough ones that don’t have to be custom made and thus cost a fortune. Once again Ms. Google came to the rescue.
If you are in Sweden and you need roller blinds of a longer than in store standard length, check out this place, Rollodin! Like I said, Ms. Google helped me find them and they have no idea I’m writing this post so this raving review is entirely because I love them.
Rollodin have so many fabric options (I chose pure white polyester after requesting and getting several fabric swatches), lengths (I bought four roller blind in three different lengths), rolling and hanging options (I went for hidden rolls and in one case a closer to the window option because of some pipes) and the option to switch from plastic pull chain to metal (I went for metal). The delivery was within a week and I paid a small fee to have it all delivered to my door. They were super easy to install and I’m super happy now that all four windows have the same simple pure white blinds. Oh, and they weren’t super expensive either. Aaaah!
