Frequently Asked Questions
How much do conservatory blinds cost?
Conservatory blinds are always bespoke manufactured, and can be fitted to your conservatory roof, or windows, or both. The price of conservatory blinds depends on several factors. The first being the size of your conservatory; the number of blinds you require and whether the roof blinds are shaped or rectangular. Secondly the type of blinds you would like; usually pleated blinds, roller blinds, or pinoleum woodweave blinds for the roof and more options for the side blinds. Then within each category there is a wide range of fabrics, that have different price bands, and finally whether they are motorised or manual. For these reasons it is quite hard to give an idea of price unless we know the size and shape of your conservatory and the type of blinds you would like. If you can provide this then we will be happy to give you an estimate, and of course, our sales appointments are free.
Are conservatory blinds expensive?
As with any product that is custom made or bespoke manufactured - there is a greater cost associated than similar off the shelf standard sized products. Blind Technique manufacture ourselves all of our conservatory blinds for both retail and trade customers, and with years of experience we are very competitively priced offering a high quality bespoke product that is expertly installed. Getting that extra use out of your conservatory means conservatory blinds are often seen as a necessity as opposed to a luxury and therefore relatively not so expensive.
Can I get an idea of the price of conservatory blinds?
Yes. You need to provide the sizes (width and drop) of any window blinds and the floor area glass to glass of your conservatory along with the shape. Additionally we need to know what type of blinds you would like, and most times an image e-mailed to us with sizes or a plan drawing is invaluable. This is enough to give you an idea, all estimates or quotations are subject to survey, and appointments for an accurate costing are free.
Can I fit conservatory blinds myself?
In theory yes, though we would always recommend having them professionally surveyed and installed. In particular, roof blinds are very difficult to measure and install - particularly triangular or angled shapes - unless you know what you are doing?
How long will my conservatory blinds take to make?
As long as your chosen material or fabric is available, we can typically manufacture and install your conservatory blinds in 3-4 weeks. The installation date may take a little bit longer when we are very busy.
How long does it take to install conservatory blinds?
This will depend on the size of the conservatory and the type of blinds, though as a rough estimate an average size conservatory can usually be installed with window and roof blinds in approximately one full day.
