In this article, we look at nautical and sea themed window roller blinds. If you have an ocean inspired home, having a nautical themed or sea view roller blind will bring ocean vibes in to your home on an evening when they are closed and rolled down.
We love having roller blinds in our house because they are neater than curtains, fit in to tight spaces where a curtain would drape too near to furniture or be blocked and you can move them up and down and leave at a height you require.
The last feature of a roller blind is one of our fave features, as we have a south facing house, we can fit them and pull them down a certain distance to stop the sun blinding us when sat in our office, but not too low to stop light coming in and seeing outside.
Another reason for choosing roller blinds over curtains is that living in a small home, we find it hard to fit curtains over the windows. There are also much less parts to a roller blind and there is no need to fit a larger window curtain pole for curtains if that was your other choice.
How To Fit A Roller Blind
With most of the roller blinds we have taken a look at, you can either buy them at the size you need or your can cut them to fit when you are installing them. This is a simple process, if you haven't done it before, not to worry, with a few simple tools you can install a window roller blind quite quickly.
A few things to remember when fitting a roller blind.
- If you have double or triple glazed window with a handle, fit your roller blind so that it doesn't hit the handle as you roll it down
- When measuring the width of your window to cut your roller blind, make sure you take in to account the fittings that are fixed to the sides of your window alcove as this will make the overall width of your roller blind less
- Try not to let the roller pull cord come free from the fitting that rolls the blind up and down, these are very hard to refit and take quite a bit of force
Tools You Will Need
Luckily not that many and you should have these lying around.
- A mini hacksaw for the metal tube that the roller blind rolls around, this can also cut the weight at the bottom of the blind too
- Tape measure to work out the width of your window and to help with cutting the blind
- Pencil to mark the blind material
- Scissors to cut the blind material
Our best and most liked nautical roller blind is the Brighton Huts, it is of neutral colours and would suit many different home interiors. It is also a thermal roller blind, so when closed you're helping to reduce heat loss and keep the warmth in your home.
Continuing on with the hut theme, we have ranked the colourful beach huts on the beach scene in second. These are vibrant and would definitely suit a bright room, something that needs a bit of colour.
We have put the Sunlover Sea View Roller Blind in third but visually it is one we really like. It is similar to the Brighton Huts Blind and is quite neutral and would suit many different interiors.
If you are thinking of fitting a blind on a window for a childs bedroom, the Little Mermaid roller blind would be perfect for your little ones room. It is bright and practical whilst easy to use, so even your little one could use it to open and close.
This is a review of the Sunlover Sea View Roller Blind
The Sunlover Sea View roller blind measuring 60 by 170cm is a suitable blind for a small narrow window in a hallway, kitchen or bathroom.
The blind is a beautiful seaside image, which if your actual view out the window is a brick wall or something not as pretty this brings a lovely cheerful feeling of seaside relaxation and calmness.
Light passes through the blind easily so this is not a black out blind, which lets light in when the sun comes up but still offers privacy.
It is easy to maintain and clean, you can wipe it clean with a cloth and the sunlover blind can be adjusted smaller if suits the window better you will just need a small hacksaw to cut through the metal pole and some scissors to cut the blind.
- Light and airy
- Lets light through
- Seaside design
- Easy to trim if needed
- Easy to clean

The Sunlover Sea View roller blind is a calming blue hue sea side blind that works great in brightening up the small spaces in your home.
This is a review of the Brighton Huts Thermal Blackout Roller Blind
Brighton Huts roller blinds by Barnes Textiles is a fun and vibrant blind incorporating colourful beach huts, umbrellas and bunting with the main colours of pink, red and cream.
It brings a splash of colour as well as a touch of subtlety. There are a choice of five different sizes to suit hallway, to bathroom, to kitchen. Personally I don't feel this blind suits a bedroom style however they are black out blinds keeping a room warm in the winter and cool in the warm summer.
Made of a tough polyester it is easy to wipe clean with a good sponge.
- Fresh seaside design
- Suits any beach home
- Easy to clean
- Black out blinds
- Keeps rooms warm yet cool in the summer
- Easy to install
- Good value for money
- Choice of 5 size options

- Not best suited for bedroom (personal taste)
This is a good value blind that is a simple purchase to brighten up a newly made up room into a beach themed home.
This is a review of the Review of AOA Beach Huts Roller Blinds
The AOA beach hut blinds are not a purchase to buy on a whim they are quite pricey but I felt drawn in by the beautiful beach huts on the white sand and crystal blue sea and glistening sky that I had to see it in reality. Once purchased it does take a few days to arrive so it isn't next day but you do get near 30 size options to choose from with your blind. On top of that they even offer the option for you to state the size you require to fit to your window perfectly.
The blinds arrives in a protected postal cylinder and rolled out are a high quality material and print and then it does explain the price tag. Now on a day when it is just miserable outside I can pull down the blind and feel that a tropical paradise is just outside.
The blind is easy to put up with the child safety break away brackets. The material of the blinds are also water repellent and fire rated which means you can easily clean them too.
- Bright and fresh design
- High quality print
- Sweeps you away to tropical paradise
- Comes in an array of sizes
- Water repellent
- Fire rated
- Comes with a strong easy to use fitting
These are beautiful high quality blinds that are worth the money if your looking for blind prints of a tropical water escape getaway for a mermaid.
This is a review of the AOA Little Mermaid Roller Blinds
The Little Mermaid Roller Blinds by AOA is a high quality print design on tough robust blind fabric. It is water repellent, mould resistant, anti allergy and easy to wipe down clean with a cloth or sponge.
The print features Ariel with key feature to her large mermaid tail to the centre of the blind. Also featuring two of her friends Flounder and Sebastian. It is a beautiful design from The Little Mermaid, when I look closer at it the sea slightly confuses me to the sea floor looking like surf on the top of the ocean rather than a sandy or rocky bottom.
Easy to assemble and comes with child safety brackets. This would be a perfect blind to go into a Little Mermaid fan's bedroom.
- High quality print
- The Little Mermaid design
- Ideal for a bedroom
- Water repellent
- Mould resistant
- Choice of four sizes but may be able to suit further on request
- Limited room options- suits bedroom
Perfect for the bedroom of a Ariel fan or of a someone who is a little mermaid themselves!
