Your new blinds from start to finish
Here we explain the process of ordering your blinds online from start to finish.
There’s a certain limit to what many of us achieve when it comes to DIY projects, but blinds are one of those things that most homeowners can do in less than an hour. This, of course, doesn’t take into account the time poring over the options and viewing your samples in the window before purchasing but once you begin the task you should find it fairly easy.
Let’s go through the process!
Your first task is to determine the windows where you’ll be fitting blinds and take accurate measurements.
You’ll have two options for most blinds – face fitting, or recess fitting. Both have their individual purposes – and your choice will differ depending on what you’re trying to achieve.
For example, if you’re looking for a sleek, minimalist look, then a recess blind could be for you. But if you’re looking to achieve maximum blockout of light, then perhaps look at a face fitting blind.
Next, you should determine what kind of blind would best suit your window and the look of your interior.
Roller Blinds are a tried and true option with minimal fuss and tend to work well in almost any space.
While timber venetians can give you a rustic and earthy feel.
Or if you’re after a more traditional look, Roman Blinds could be a great option.
Once you’ve narrowed down your list of blinds you can order samples. We recommend viewing samples of our blinds at different times of the day so you can really get a feel for how they look with the light filtering through. Venetian blind samples can be held against your existing furnishings and floor to view the contrast.
From there you can simply order. Head to the product page, customise your measurements and colours and your new blinds will be sent out to you.
After you’ve ordered your blinds it will be time for installation. Your blinds will come with detailed fitting instructions and you’ll also find guides right here on our site.
If you’re finding the installation process a little overwhelming, don’t worry! We’re here to help. Simply contact us with your concerns and we’ll talk you through it.
The final step is to quite simply enjoy your new blinds.
