Service Spotlight Series – Fabric Sample Service
June 30, 2021
Welcome to the seventh of twelve blog spotlights on the services we are proud to offer our customers at Blind Technique! After over 35 years’ experience within the custom blinds industry we know and appreciate that both form and functionality are vital components to consider when deciding on the optimum window dressing for you in your home. Form and functionality often meet in the fabric you choose for your conservatory or window blind and here at Blind Technique we try to make this aspect as easy as possible for you to decide. When you arrange a Surveying Home Appointment with one of our friendly and professional Sales Advisors we pride ourselves on bringing as many fabric sample books as we can to show you the options in the comfort of your own home. The fabric samples can be viewed in the book or alternatively they can be taken out and held up against the window or furniture to see the colour and texture in the actual lighting conditions you have at home.
We also enjoy long-standing and established relationships with our fabric suppliers such as Louvolite who offer to send out their fabric samples to valued customers just like you, free of charge. If you are looking to view the complete range of fabrics we have on offer at Blind Technique, you are warmly invited to visit our Showroom, here at our Eastcote location. Before you visit us, however, we would ask you to take some time to familiarise yourself with our COVID Secure procedures regarding our Showroom available to view here
Window dressings are often a tactile purchase and so fabric samples can bring a catalogue of design photographs or an interior style website image to life. The Blind Technique team appreciate this and listen carefully during the initial telephone consultation to your window dressing needs to ensure they bring with them the most appropriate fabric sample books for you to view at home in-keeping with your home design form and functionality requirements. We encourage all our valued customers to take all the time they need to decide on the fabric which is right for them. Should any questions arise during the home appointment regarding the fabrics we are always happy to consult with our fabric suppliers to obtain all the answers you need as soon as possible.
When deciding on window dressing fabric to suit a particular room, you may wish to consider these practical factors:
- The amount of sunlight the room receives
- The level of solar protection and temperature control you wish to achieve
- How often the room is used and so how often the custom blind will be required to provide shading/light levels (would you need a hard-wearing fabric, for example?)
- How the fabric suits an existing home design scheme or your new plans
Did you know that at Blind Technique we also specialise in made to measure curtains for you, our valued customers? Curtains are hand crafted drapes that can be made from the huge range of fabrics that are available today. On top of the fabric choice, there are also a large number of style options and different accessories to truly customise this product, which again, we are happy to show you via our fabric sample books either at the Showroom or at your Home Appointment with us. Romo fabrics are a popular choice, or you have the option of supplying us with your own chosen fabric for a bespoke window dressing created especially by us, for you and your home.
