Rotary chain track with a choice of chain colours. This is advisable for blinds that are more than one width of fabric wide as they pull the blind up more easily. This also complies with the child safety laws.

A GUIDE TO CURTAINS & BLINDS
Choosing window treatments is very much about creating a look rather than implementing a wholly practical solution. A greater choice of fabrics in every pattern and colour means that window dressings are as effective a part of the decorating scheme as ever, you can buy ready made curtains obviously, but that will limit your choice.
As windows are an important focal point and a major source of light in a room it is important to get the proportions right. Let maximum light in through small windows by making sure curtains can be fully pulled back to expose all of the glass if space allows, or use blinds hung higher above the window frame.
When planning a new look for a room always finish the decorating prior to hanging window dressings to avoid mess on fabrics. If you are fitting new flooring this may make a difference to the finish drop of full length curtains so have that in place first, as well as poles fitted in place before the final drop measurement is taken.
Finishing touches can be added in the form of trims on window dressings, and tie backs. Boarders can be added to the fabric in contrasting colours which can also be used for cushions to create a flow of colour. Layering blinds and curtains achieves an elegant, simple look. Pelmets in contrasting fabrics can be fitted across the top of a window to conceal tracks.
Magazines for the home provide a great source of ideas and inspiration for a new look. Keep cuttings of images you like as a guide.
