The Perfect Fit
Updated: Mar 4
When it comes to picking the perfect blind solution for your home, the choice can be, well… overwhelming. It can feel like there are too many choices to make - from deciding on your style, to narrowing down your material of choice, choosing your fabric, how you’d prefer your window dressings to open…
Sometimes, we find customers just don’t know where to start. And that’s where we come in. From helping you suss out which style will be best for your room based on your priorities – perhaps you need them to be easy clean, deliver an impact in your interiors scheme or give you a little more privacy – to making design and install of your made-to-measure blinds as smooth as possible, our experience will be nothing short of five-star.
But we’re getting ahead of ourselves… Let’s get back to how you choose the perfect fit. Have a read through our handy guide to help you decide exactly which blind is best for your bespoke project.
Simple, non-fussy, budget-friendly, vertical blinds are a versatile option that can give your home a bespoke feel without the price tag you may associate with that service. A great option for large, wide or shaped windows too, we have worked with clients to bring their vertical blind ideas to life in all rooms, although they are a particularly popular choice for more function rooms, such as the kitchen, utility, offices – even entirely corporate spaces rather than your home.
Amazing space savers that add clean, modern lines and a contemporary feel, vertical blinds have the added benefit of allowing you to choose how private your room needs to be. They are also a great option for regulating temperature so if you have a room that gets particularly warm these could be just the solution. Vertical blinds are also a fantastic choice in rooms where you struggle with bright light. No one likes to complain about the sun beaming in – of course – but sometimes the glare needs taming. Verticals are the ideal option to calm any temporarily unwanted rays.
Getting that bespoke feel with vertical blinds is really very easy too. Start by choosing from the incredibly wide selection of high-quality fabrics, and then add on your extras – chainless for a less utilitarian feel, blackout for cinema rooms or the nursery, you can even add a wand to control how much light is flooding in a breeze.
Arguably one of the most recognisable products in the world of blind design, Venetian blinds blend style and functionality, while being budget-friendly without compromising on quality. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we promise you we speak the truth – our full guarantee proves that one. What makes Venetians budget-friendly, is the choice of materials. Opt for metal – which comes in a huge array of colours and finishes, making metal a great option if you’re looking for pops of colours throughout your interiors – faux wood and real wood.
Stylish and practical, wooden Venetians deliver a high-end look and feel. With a wide variety of finishes and woods to choose from – as well as slat widths making tailoring Venetians to suit your space even easier – wood Venetians add warmth to your home.. Optimising natural materials such as wood – faux or not – in your home, especially when combined with a neutral colour palette and light spaces will deliver calming rooms where you cannot wait to unwind.
Good for insulating rooms, strong, durable, low maintenance, classic in design, and with further additional extras such as tensioned and ‘Perfect Fit’, Venetians give you the opportunity to create a made-to-measure solution that is exactly how you want it, no matter your budget.
A truly simple way to transform any room, made-to-measure Roller blinds offer an incredible array of benefits – which make them the perfect choice for those who want something non-fussy, clean, elegant and functional – with the option to inject a little of their personality too. With an incredible choice of fabrics, Rollers can really be made to compliment any interior space. They are easy to clean, low maintenance and the perfect choice if privacy isn’t an issue during the day.
If you are, however, looking for a Roller blind style that works during the day too, look no further than Vision blinds. A stunning, and contemporary, alternative to Rollers or Venetians, Visions blinds combine moveable sheer and opaque panels to give you greater flexibility when it comes to light and privacy. Smart and easy to operate these are a fantastic solution for any room where you’d prefer to keep the blinds down at any hour.
We can’t talk about Roller blinds without mentioning blackouts, this case – Bloc blinds. Ok, so not ‘technically’ a roller blind, but you’d be forgiven for thinking they were, Bloc blinds are an award-winning, spring-loaded blackout blind. Set into side and top rails to prevent light intruding and reducing heat loss, Bloc binds allow you to create complete room darkness, whatever the season. With colour options and a high-quality range of fabrics for the blinds themselves, you can also tailor the side and top rails to suit your interiors.
A stylish and easy choice when it comes to window coverings, Pleated blinds are essentially fold after fold of delicate concertinas. They deliver an incredibly soft yet streamlined look, which is one of the reasons they have become a popular choice for conservatories. One of the most versatile blind solutions available today, mainly because they can be made to fit almost any shape or size of window, Pleated blinds come with so many added benefits. Much like Vision blinds, they allow you to manage light effectively throughout the day, meaning you can have blinds lowered without feeling like you are sitting in a darkened room. They are easy to use, fantastic for insulating a room – another reason that makes them a clear choice for conservatories – and are contemporary in their look and feel without being clinical.
Soft, luxurious, traditional, Roman blinds are a popular choice for the living areas of your home – especially in any homes with added history. Another great option to limit sunlight throughout the day, Roman blinds give windows a truly bespoke look and feel, with each blind tailored to suit your décor and window size and shape. Choose from a wide selection of high-end fabrics – plain, textured, patterned, floral – and introduce a softer finish, timeless design and energy efficient blind into your home.
With an increase in loft conversions, and home improvements, came the need for a smart and style-savvy solution for roof lights. Yes they let in a tonne of light and offer great views but what happens when darkness is needed – curtains aren’t exactly going to work? Roof blinds are the answer. Sleek, stylish and with the option to be colour coded to your loft spaces, Roof blinds can be fitted to any skylight window, including Velux, Keylite and Fakro designs. There are styles to suit every budget – which makes them a very affordable choice too. Roof blinds can also offer an effective blackout solution, so are a great choice for any roof space bedrooms or cinema/games rooms. They are also fade resistant and therefore a cost-effective solution with real longevity.
Perfect for heritage homes, or those who love a touch of tradition in their interiors, shutters have become incredibly popular in recent years. With three shutter styles to choose from – full-height, tier on tier, which gives you individual control over each shutter panel, and café style, which are designed to cover the bottom half of your windows – there are a trio of ways to achieve your desired look and feel. Boasting noise-reducing properties too, shutters are easy to clean, give you the option to increase privacy or decrease light pollution and, furthermore, they actually increase your property value so are a fantastic investment if you’re looking to upgrade your interiors.
