Blinds

All our standard blinds (Venetians, Rollers, Verticals, Pleated, perfect fit and most motorized blinds Roof blinds) are made in the UK from Wimbledon to Nottingham to Scotland.

We have worked with a number of manufacturers who have been making blinds for over 30 years, so we have carefully selected who we think are the best to work with, and who are most suited to us, and you, our customer.

Lead times from these suppliers are usually two to three weeks, but we do have our busy times of the year. One of these is the run-up to Christmas, so our leads times can increase slightly. If we are running slightly late with a delivery, don’t worry, we will immediately be in touch with you to discuss your fitting date.

All our blinds come with a 2-year guarantee.

Depending on the size of your project and how many blinds are being fitted, installation can take a few hours only, or a full day’s fitting depending on the size of the project.
