Top Tips for Blinds

Beautifully made blinds are an investment and will last a lifetime! Our in-house makers are some of the best in the country!

Measuring for your Blinds:

Whilst stylistically blinds can seem simpler, the type of window you are dressing will determine the measurements required.

Blinds can sit within your recess, or some prefer for their blind to fit outside the window recess which would mean overlapping on all sides. The overlap at the bottom of the blind is very much your personal choice, however, we recommend that you are mindful of obstacles such as radiators, sills or furniture.
