Excellence in Manufacturing Standards

Our factory employs advanced crush cut and ultrasonic machinery for fabric cuts, ensuring impeccable finishing on your roller blinds and preventing edge fraying.

Tailor your roller blinds to your exact preferences. Additionally, explore our exclusive range of unique add-ons. Visit our product pages or scroll below to discover more.

Opt for chain, motorised, or cordless variants. Enjoy one of the widest fabric selections. Select between flat or ellipse base rails, and benefit from rubber stoppers on the base rails’ back, safeguarding your window frames.

Crush & Ultrasonic cutting machines prevent fabric fraying along the edges.

Premium Anti-Pucker Aluminium Roller Blind Base Rails

Our roller blinds showcase an exclusive ellipse (larger than oval) base rail profile meticulously crafted to eradicate puckering at the bottom edge of the blind. With eight distinct colors available, you can effortlessly coordinate them with your room’s fabric and decor palette.

Alternatively, our flat design is offered in three popular colors: anodised, black, and white.

Optional Rubber Inserts

Both of our bottom rail designs offer an optional rubber insert at the back, designed to dampen any noise generated when they come into contact with the window or frame. This often occurs when opening windows for fresh air or during regular operation. Additionally, it helps prevent scuffing or scratching of your architraves. This is a low cost solution that we offer, that others pay a premium for to get with aftermarket products, and other suppliers simply do not incorporate.

Endless customisation: Choose between Metal or Plastic chains. Plastic chains are available in four colors: White, Birch, Beige, or Black. For those residing in coastal areas, we also offer a stainless steel chain upgrade to prevent rust.

Choose between your choice of Fabric Type…

Blockout Roller Blinds

Roller Blockout

The Blockout fabric fully obstructs light and also offers thermal insulation. Perfect for ensuring complete nighttime privacy, especially in bedrooms to deter unwanted glances and to mitigate disturbances from the early morning sun. Blockout stands as our top-selling fabric choice.

Sun Screen Roller Blinds

Roller Sunscreen

The Sunscreen fabric reduces light and heat intensity while preserving visibility. Depending on the fabric selected, it blocks over 95% of harmful UV rays, safeguarding your furniture and floors. Sunscreen provides effective daytime privacy, preventing outsiders from seeing inside unless there are lights turned on.

Translucent Roller Blinds

Roller Light Filter

Light Filtering provides excellent daytime privacy by obscuring the view while allowing ample light to enter and illuminate the room. However, it’s not recommended for nighttime privacy as silhouettes may be visible when lights are on indoors.

Extra-wide 3m roller blinds

Our fabrics are obtainable in extended widths straight off the roll. Our roller blinds can span from bracket to bracket up to 3000mm in width (and some up to 3200mm), making them ideal for covering expansive windows or sliding doors.

Streamlined Solutions: Explore Our Linked Blinds

For covering expansive widths, our linked blinds system offers an ideal solution. Linked blinds minimise gaps between roller blinds by using a single joiner bracket and fewer deductions for mechanisms since there is no need to account for chain drives. One blind can control up to two others, or they can operate independently. Opting for motorised roller blinds with a linked blind setup allows one motor to control multiple blinds, reducing costs.

For those seeking a seamless look without any gaps, explore our other products. We frequently provide long-length verticals, curtains, and panel blinds, which are popular for sliding doors spanning large widths.


Enclosed Cassette Roller Blinds

Require complete blackout? Look no further. Our fully enclosed cassette system is perfect for media rooms, shift workers, children’s rooms/nurseries, and bedrooms.

Ready-Made vs. Custom-Made Roller Blinds

While ready-made products may be cheaper, they often don’t fit window interiors well, leading to large light gaps. Our custom-made products are crafted to a higher standard, ensuring longevity and a perfect fit. Strong tubes prevent fabric sagging, and well-designed base rails keep the fabric taut. Installing within the window recess usually yields a more aesthetic outcome, which isn’t easily achieved with ready-made products. Our custom-made roller blinds are precision cut with crush cut and ultrasonic machines to prevent fraying of edges, a common issue with ready-made blinds. For more details, see the section below on “What’s the difference between ready-made and custom-made roller blinds?”

Extensive Customisation

Our custom-made blinds offer a wide range of additional features not available in ready-made products. Tailor your blinds to your exact preferences.

Holland blinds, also known as Roller Blinds, are essentially the same product.

The term ‘Scotch Holland Roller Blinds’ traces its origins back to the early 1700s in Scotland. Initially crafted from linen sourced from the Netherlands, these blinds were later manufactured in Glasgow by James Louis Robertson and John King, hence the name ‘Scotch Holland.’

The early versions of these roller blinds lacked a spring mechanism. Instead, the fabric would fold on the window ledge when closed. To open the blind, one would pull a cord attached to a top rod. The open blind could then be secured by winding the cord around a cleat.

Roller blinds offer a convenient means of regulating room temperature. For optimal insulation, we suggest opting for blockout roller blinds, which serve as an effective barrier. These blinds reflect heat outdoors, aiding in maintaining a cool interior during summer and retaining warmth in winter.

Determining where to mount your blind is not always a matter of personal preference, there are definitely plenty of practical reasons to consider when making your choice. Is Blocking Light more Important in certain rooms? Appearance? Will it Fit? Here’s what you need to know to help you decide.

Recess Mount Inside Mount

Recess Fit

  • Give your window a clean, simple look
  • Streamline a row of windows, helps windows appear slimmer and more discreet
  • Highlight attractive Window Moldings (Architraves)
  • Most popular & recommended way to Install Roller Blinds
Face Mount Outside Mount Fit

Face Fit

  • Minimise light gaps offering better privacy
  • Make your window appear larger
  • Hide windows that are crooked or unattractive
  • Clear obstructions in the window recess like winders, knobs, etc that would interfere with an Inside mounting Blind (Depth requirements can be found on Measuring Page)

Light Gaps When Recess Mounting

Another thing to consider when Recess Mounting a Roller Blind is that there is generally a small light gap of around 15-20mm on each side of the window opening to the side of the cloth to accommodate for the brackets and mechanisms.

If light gaps are not acceptable for you, consider these options in spaces like Bedrooms, and Theater Rooms where you would prefer the most blockout:

  • Adding drapery to cover the light gaps
  • Choosing a Face Fit Roller Blind

Under Roll (Standard)

This is the most common option where the fabric rolls back, having it as close to the glass as possible. Having it roll this way will block the most amount of light and afford the most privacy.

The downside for an Under Roll is that the roll and hardware show – a look some people don’t like. If you choose a fabric with a coloured backing this would show at the top of the roll, although most of our fabrics have same colour backing or a colour coordinated backing. The ? Tooltip associated with each fabric range will show what colour the backing is. If you are using a fabric with a white coloured backing, there are some remedies such as Over Rolling (Reverse Rolling) your blind, or ordering one of our custom made pelmets as this provides a more finished look.

Over Roll (Reverse Roll)

A Over Roll or Reverse Roll, is where the fabric comes over the front of the roller so you do not see it around the tubing, it creates a more finished look. The Over Roll is also good for clearing an obstruction, like a window crank or door handle because it pushes the fabric away from the glass.

Over Rolls are also used for fabrics that have two different colours on each side, as you will not see the fabric backing on the top of the tube.

Because having an Over Roll pushes the fabric away from the window glass, for Face Mounts specifically you should consider under rolling (standard)

Since your roller blinds are tailored to your specifications, there is a lead time before they can be dispatched to you.

This timeframe typically ranges from 12 to 20 working days. Please note that this does not include transit time after dispatch by the freight carriers.

Choosing the right window coverings for your home isn’t as easy as it sounds. The question is, do you buy ready made roller blinds right off the shelf, or go with custom made roller blinds blinds that are made to measure?

When it comes to choosing between custom made blinds and ready made blinds, My Direct Blinds know a thing or two about making the right decision to suit your needs. We’ll provide you with an overview of the pros and cons of custom made blinds versus ready made blinds, so you can be more informed about which option is best for you.

The pros of custom made blinds

Custom made roller blinds offer many benefits, including:

  • They are customised to perfectly fit to your window. To fit your roller blind within your window opening is considered a more aesthetic choice as it displays the decorative window trims. To get the same look with a ready made roller blind you’ll likely need to have it cut down – which has drawbacks in itself. If you choose to cut down a ready made roller blinds, the edges will fray as they’ve not been professionally cut. If you manage to fit it inside, you’ll likely have larger light gaps on the edges as ready made blinds are not made to fit exactly. Window sizes can vary quite a bit.
  • Custom made blinds are manufactured to Australian Safety Standards, which will ensure protection for you and your family.
  • Most of our fabrics feature GreenGuard Gold certifications and are tested to Australian standards, making them great for asthmatics as they will emit less VOCs when compared to ready made roller blinds.
  • My Direct Blinds has on offer many different choices of fabrics to better customise your roller blinds and this will ensure you get the best look for your home. We only offer premium components that come with a 5 year warranty.
  • You’ll be able to see free samples of the colour and texture in your own home before purchasing, making sure the style fits with the rest of your home décor.
  • Custom made blinds are high quality and durable and come with a guarantee for installation and material with 5 years.
  • Custom roller blinds come with a wide range of options, so you can tailor your choice to suit your personal preferences. Customizable options include UV blocking aka sunscreen fabric, blockout, light filtering fabrics, mechanical controlling via chain or cordless options, programmable timers via smart hub motorisation options, voice controlled blinds, rubber inserts on base rails, larger tube upgrades, chain upgrades and a massive range of colours and textures in not only the fabrics available but also the components and base rails. We only use Australian engineered components, that are simply put much more sturdy and long lasting.
  • They can be made to fit any dimension, so there’s no need to worry about finding the right fit for your excessively large or small windows.
  • The price point of our custom made blinds is not too different from ready made roller blinds.

The cons of custom made blinds

The only con to keep in mind when choosing custom made blinds is that it’s a more time-consuming process. You will need to allow time to choose your design then await the manufacture and installation of your blinds. With My Direct Blinds this is typically a 12-20 working day process.

The pros of ready-made blinds

Buying ready made blinds offers several benefits, including:

  • Ready made blinds are quick and easy to find and buy. All you need to do is go to a blind store, find the ones you like that fit your requirements and you can purchase them instantly.
  • You can install ready made blinds yourself, which means you can put them up as soon as you’ve bought them home. However keep in mind, that you shouldn’t skimp on your home – ready made blinds often have a tacky feel to them. ‘You get what you pay for’
  • They often present a slightly cheaper option, although My Direct Blinds offers custom blinds at factory direct prices for a more affordable customised option.

The cons of ready-made blinds

The cons associated with buying ready made blinds are significant, mainly:

  • You are limited in the size and style you can select. If a shop doesn’t have the colour, size or texture you like, there’s nothing you can do about it. You have to either accept blinds that aren’t completely to your liking or continue hunting until you find a store that sells the right blinds, which can be a lengthy and frustrating process.
  • Quality is not assured with readymade blinds, so you can never be fully confident that the product you’re receiving will last.
  • Aesthetically & functionally, they are often inferior, the fabric may V or fade in a short period of time. The base rails are often small round tubes without enough weight in them to keep your fabric properly taught. Over time the fabric will pucker as the base rail design is inferior.
  • Fabrics are often cheaper, and thinner – may emit harmful VOC’s. There are no standards to adhere to when the blinds are made overseas.
  • Fabric edges may begin to fray, as they could be cut down locally or not cut from the factory with the right technology.

Our verdict – Which is the better choice?

When considering the pros and cons of both custom made and ready made blinds, choosing custom blinds is the clear winner. Custom made blinds can be a little pricier and you have to wait a bit longer, but this process ensures you do it right once and don’t have to think about it again, and in our view the price point is not vastly different. The result will be a high-quality product that perfectly fits your window, using a texture and colour you love that compliments the rest of your home design.

Purchasing ready made roller blinds from Bunnings or Spotlight for the most part is an inferior solution for your window coverings as outlined above. Although these stores both also sell custom made roller blinds, we’re able to beat them on price, quality, and customisation.

Yes. All of our blinds are Australian made, and are manufactured locally in Melbourne. With the exception of our Plantation Shutters.

Roller blinds are typically assembled in approximately 10-15 minutes due to their manufacturing process. Labor costs constitute a small portion of the overall product cost, making locally produced blinds often comparable or even cheaper to manufacture when factoring in international shipping expenses. This is why many window furnishings are still manufactured in Australia.

By choosing Australian-made blinds, you’re not only supporting local employment but also keeping the money circulating within our economy instead of abroad.

Additionally, there are other advantages. For instance, if any issues arise with your blinds, they can be promptly addressed within a few business days, unlike the potentially lengthy wait times associated with overseas-made blinds.

Lastly, overseas-made roller blinds typically have a delivery time of 7 weeks or more, whereas locally made blinds offer a shorter turnaround time.

Our roller blinds are crafted from scratch, precisely tailored to your measurements. We do not simply cut down ready-made blinds or offer them for sale, as we believe they provide an inferior solution.

For further information on DIY, you can refer to Wikipedia.

The abbreviation stands for “Do it yourself” or ‘DIY’, commonly associated with consumers engaging in home improvement and maintenance tasks. It entails individuals undertaking various home improvement and craft projects as both a recreational and cost-effective endeavor.

Regarding our roller blinds, DIY entails measuring and installing the blinds yourself instead of relying on a company to do it for you.

By taking the DIY approach, you can save on the expenses associated with professional measurement and installation services. It’s a straightforward process, and we’re here to assist you every step of the way.

Our blinds are designed for easy measurement and installation, requiring no professional expertise.
