Allusion Blinds

Allusion blinds are a unique window dressing for the modern home and are perfect for fitting to larger windows, patio doors and bi-folding doors. They can be described as a cross between a curtain, a vertical blind, and a voile. This makes allusion blinds a unique product that is suitable for many different windows in your home, particularly larger windows or openings.

Traditionally, larger windows were sometimes difficult to dress with window blinds as an alternative to curtains. This is no longer the case, Allusion blinds are designed perfectly to fit this bigger space, to bridge this gap and look beautiful on numerous windows and doors around the home.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What are allusion blinds?

    Allusion blinds are a cross between a curtain, vertical blind and voile and they are the perfect window dressing solution for the modern home. They can be fitted to windows, patio doors and large bi-folding or sliding doors, making them a diverse choice that will look beautiful in your home. Allusion blinds allow maximum light in your home when they are in full view, you can enjoy a partial view and subtly diffused light for privacy with the daytime view or you can opt for total privacy that is ideal for the evening.

  • Are allusion blinds expensive?

    The combined weave and sheer fabric and the more complex manufacturing process mean that allusion blinds are more expensive than an equivalent sized vertical blind. However, for large windows, choosing allusion blinds can still be a cost-effective solution. We offer no-obligation quotations so you can compare your different options and find the best fit for your home. Contact us for a quotation or to arrange an at-home consultation!

  • How long does it take to fit allusion blinds?

    This will depend on the number of allusion blinds you have and their size. As a very rough guide, around 30-45 minutes per blind is an average. Once the brackets are secured, the headrail or pelmet will clip in and the pre-prepared fabric panels can be hung. Please note that this can vary considerably depending on what we are fitting into and the size of the window. After a consultation with one of our team, you will be given a more accurate fitting time!

  • Can allusion blinds be fitted to a vertical blind track?

    In theory, yes they can. However, the spacing on allusion blinds is different, so you would need more fabric panels and they wouldn't sit properly. Therefore, we do not recommend this and instead suggest ordering the complete product. Allusion blind fabric panels can be interchanged as and when you wish at a later date.

  • Types of allusion blinds fabric

    There are two main types of allusion blinds fabric available in a wide variety of shades to suit the aesthetic of your home. The first is the Horizon fabric, which is a sheer and textured woven material in neutral and calming tones. The second is Vista, a flame retardant range of fabrics that offer a sophisticated sheer perfect for any modern home. If you are unsure about the right material for your home, come to see our showroom, or book an at-home consultation and one of our specialists will bring a range of fabric samples so you can make the perfect choice. 

  • Who designed Allusion Blinds?

    Allusion blinds are a relatively new creation from UK-based Louvolite. Blind Technique has invested in this blind system and now manufactures Allusion blinds in our factory and workshop based in Eastcotee, Middlesex. We're also one of the very few suppliers of motorised Allusion blinds. Locally made, UK-designed blinds are the perfect choice for your home. Please find out more from Blind Technique or visit our showroom.

  • REALLY impressed by every aspect of our order with Blind Technique. The staff were, without exception, readily accessible (a big plus these days), friendly, engaged, and professional. We knew what was going on at every stage and the final outcome is superb; the plantation blinds look and feel well made and have added very positively to the look of the front of our house.

I was looking for some particular blinds for my living room and Jon understood exactly what i was looking for! Very impressed, I already recommended this place to all my neighbours :)

  • Blind Technique did a superb job on the roof blinds for my conservatory. They fit the difficult shape exactly and are easy to draw open or shut. They are a replacement for the blinds the company did years ago, which I have been very pleased with, and I am very happy with the new ones.
