John Lewis The Basics Blackout Roller Blind, White

Product information

These great-value basic white roller blinds come complete with screws and brackets for easy assembly. Made from blackout fabric which also has insulating properties.

Wipe clean lightly with damp cloth. Width can be cut to size.

When fitting your blind, you must fit the safety device provided with the blind to the wall in order to tie up the pull cord safely out of the way of children and pets.

For safety we recommend that you move beds, cots and furniture away from any window fitted with a blind that has a side control mechanism, even with a safety device in place.

With John Lewis quality at reassuringly low prices, our range The Basics has everything your home needs for the day to day.

To prevent the formation of potentially hazardous loops, which could endanger children, this product incorporates a primary breakaway system. These components are designed to come apart when undue force is applied to the blind cords or chains.

This breakaway system is easy to reassemble in the event of the cords or chains being pulled too hard, and breaking away accidentally in use.

Q & As

John Lewis The Basics Blackout Roller Blind 3.9 5 8 8
nice blind A bit fiddly to fit especially if fitting inside a window frame but excellent value and looks good once up. 09 December 2014
Great value This blind is great value for money. It does the job, easy to instal and looks nice too what more can you ask for. 19 August 2014
Black out blind This black out blind is easily cut to fit the width of your window. Rolled out you can mark a line on the blind to cut with scissors. You will then need a small hacksaw to cut the metal bar at the bottom of the blind. The metal bar slips out from the blind and can be cut easily. The blind is silver on the outside which reflects the light away from the window, and buff colour on the inside. The plastic close chain is a bit flimsy but adequate. Great value for money. 05 August 2014
Good, but needs caution I have previously fitted roller blinds from various sources. This time needed to exclude light from a bedroom, with preference for white. The outward facing surface is metallic, probably aluminium, which works well to exclude light, and minimise weight. We have a net curtain between blind and glass so this is not detectable from outside. The whole kit it light weight, making the installation a one person job, subject to having a good ladder. Measured three times, marked fabric and tube carefully, cut once and it fitted first time. Fittings are just loose enough that they could be removed from tube to trim a bit more. Vulnerable aspects. End brackets have oval holes for screws. These ovals are too long. I locked the screws with glue. The aluminium tube is very thin. Cutting needs care. Mark length three times, then encircle with adhesive tape before starting to cut. Use fresh fine grade hacksaw blade and make a groove all round before going deeper to complete the cut. I recommend using a small file to smooth the metal tube ends before inserting plastic fittings. After cutting the fabric, the stitching at the bottom may unravel. I stopped this with a spot of glue. The locking arrangement on the side opposite the chain drive could easily be lost. Developers need to find a better system. 19 July 2014
Disappointing I ordered three of these blinds. The back is an awful metallic silver colour and the stitching poor. I took the first one out of the packaging and found that it was marked so all three were sent straight back. Disappointing and time consuming. 16 July 2014
Ideal low cost solution Had to fit three of these blinds for a long window. Each one had to be reduced in width, which is not too difficult. As with any job it takes longer then you think, spent nearly 15 minutes retrieving a screwdriver behind a radiator. These are not heavy duty blinds but will be quite adequate for their intended purpose. For the price they are to be recommend . 10 June 2014
Does what it says on the tin Great price for a simple, effective black-out blind that was easy to install. Can't fault it. 20 May 2014
Pros & Cons. This blind comes with fairly easy to follow instructions on cutting to size and it's also not too much trouble to carry out the resizing. After fitting it within the window recess we've discovered that the mechanism is really stiff, to the point where it's come off the wall several times while opening/closing it. I'm aware that this blind is from the Basics range and therefore a great price but it's pretty tricky to use on a daily basis and we're more than likely going to have to buy a different blind. 28 April 2014
