SELECTING THE RIGHT BLIND

WHICH BLIND SHOULD I CHOOSE?

 

Window Blinds have many versatile applications and often are a personal choice. Certain Blinds are preferred for specific room types e.g. Kitchen (Roller Blinds), Bedroom (Blackout Roman or Roller Blinds), Patio Doors (Vertical Blinds) and Bathrooms (Waterproof Roller Blinds). Fifty50 Blinds offer the best option for complete light control, so are perfect for bedrooms and living spaces.

Layering windows with two or more products can be an excellent way to achieve privacy whilst allowing natural light to pass into the room.

WHAT KIND OF BLIND?

Roller blinds

ROLLER

 

Roller Blinds are fabric wound on a roll, hence the name! They can be lifted/lowered to whatever height you need.

ROMAN

 

Roman Blinds are made from soft fabric that hangs in neat folds when open, and sits flat when fully extended. A choice of lining qualities are available.

FIFTY50

 

Fifty50 Blinds are double layer Roller Blinds which allow for an open or closed position relating to the sheer/solid weave of the fabric. This Blind gives you a system that controls light and privacy.

VERTICAL

 

Vertical louvres of fabric are clipped on to a head rail at the top and operated with a wand or chain.

Our Roller, Roman and Fifty50 Blinds are able to be motorised for complete ease of control, and are the best child safety option.

GENERAL TIPS FOR MADE TO MEASURE BLINDS

  • All our Blinds are made to be safe. Please ensure that you install Blinds correctly and follow the instructions provided.
  • All Roman Blinds can be dry cleaned as standard. Please ensure that you remove all the horizontal rods and the bottom bar when dry cleaning. All other Blinds can be sponge cleaned.
  • Due to the packing methods on Roman Blinds, velvets and pile fabrics may have creasing and pressure marks which should disappear over time.
  • To ensure your Roman Blinds look their best, we recommend using a steamer to help eliminate creases. Do not use excessive pressure or heat as this can distort the fabric.
  • We pride ourselves on excellent quality. All Blinds are inspected and photographed prior to packing and dispatching to ensure your order arrives perfectly.
  • All Blinds are custom made to the dimensions provided at the time of ordering. Refunds and exchanges can not be given on any made to measure Blinds that have been incorrectly ordered unless they are faulty.
  • Blinds Child Safety Awareness - Keep all cords and chains out of the reach of children using the safety hook, which has been provided for you. Loose cords or chains should never be tied together. Furniture that could climb on should be kept away from your windows.
