Frequently Asked Questions
What are custom blinds?
Custom blinds are blinds that have been manufactured to fit your windows, anywhere in your home, perfectly. Each of our blinds are specially produced for your windows, resulting in a flawless finish and fit every time. You can select the type of blinds you want, the fabrics of the blinds and also any other design features. Traditional blinds rarely offer the level of customisation that is available when you choose customised blinds. Custom window blinds also offer an exceptional solution if you have unique shaped windows, as you will no longer have to settle for ill-fitting or poor quality blinds that you simply aren’t happy with.
What are the benefits of customised blinds?
There are so many benefits to custom blinds, as you can personalise the style options, they will fit to perfection and they offer an unparalleled quality. Additionally, when blinds are custom made, there is no room for cold to enter your home and for your heating to leave your home through windows during the winter. Also, the perfect fit of custom blinds makes sure excess heat and light cannot enter your home in the summer months. This energy efficiency is a significant benefit of choosing customised blinds over regular blinds.
How long does it take to install custom blinds?
The time it takes to install custom blinds will differ depending on the type of blinds you are having fitted, how many are needed and also the shape of the windows. We will be able to give you a more accurate estimation of the installation time following an initial consultation. For particular types of blinds, such as shutters and conservatory blinds, we will send a specialist surveyor for the installation. As some of our custom window blinds must be installed by us, we include the cost of installation in the price. We offer morning and afternoon appointments for our installation and members of our team will give regular updates about the expected time of arrival. Once the installation is complete, we will make sure that you are completely happy with the blinds, before showing you how to use your custom blinds.
What materials can custom blinds come in?
The beneficial thing about custom window blinds is that you have such a wide range of choices when it comes to the material. Our team of specialists will be able to give you advice on the best fabrics for your custom blinds depending on the specific room and the shape of the window. We are sure that you will find the right material for your home. Different types of blinds tend to use specific materials, for example Venetian blinds are usually made of either wood or aluminium and roller blinds are usually made of high quality polyester. However, we will make sure that we provide every option available to you from our vast collection, so you can make the right choice for your home.
How long do custom blinds last?
Generally, custom blinds can last you up to ten years. After this point, depending on the material, they may start to discolour over time. Some blinds will last longer than 10 years if they have a timeless design and durable materials! It really does depend on the type of blinds you choose. It is also important to remember that having custom window blinds adds considerate value to your home and they can also help you to save a significant amount of energy over the years. With the right maintenance, your customised blinds will last much longer. Make sure to regularly clean your blinds whilst also removing excess dirt or dust.
