Made to Measure Blinds - No Hassle!

NewBlinds.co.uk only offers made to measure blinds, and there is a reason for this. The alternative, ready made blinds, have A LOT of disadvantages!

So why do other internet retailers continue to promote ready made blinds? Simple - because they can offer lower prices due to ready made blinds being mass produced and a lower quality.

Where does this leave you, the customer? Well, these retailers expect you to buy the next size up and either trim the blinds your self or fit them as they are. If you do leave them as they are, they have to be fitted around the recess which is not making the best use of your sill space. The only alternative is to trim them down to the size of your recess manually. This can be very time consuming and fiddly, and can often leave an unprofessional finish.

Because ready made blinds are aimed at the “cheap and cheerful” end of the market, cheap components and thin slatting or fabrics are often used. Often a very limited range of colours or fabrics are available to choose from, which means that it is likely to be the case that you want be able to find the perfect colour to suit your decor.

Made to measure blinds on the other hand are the complete opposite and you’d be surprised at how affordable made to measure blinds can be!

Unlike ready made blinds, made to measure blinds are available in a vast choice of fabrics – ranging from lost cost to high quality premium fabrics. The range of different colours and materials is very extensive, ranging from real wooden venetian slats such as Dark Walnut, to Roman blind materials such as Islita Lime, to simple but stylish vertical and roller blinds fabrics like Acacia Peach.

Made to measure blinds do not have to be trimmed down. Providing that you submit the correct measurements you should receive blinds that fit perfectly onto your windows. This doesn’t necessarily mean longer lead times though.
We have a selection of blinds available on next day delivery and others on fast lead times.

Controlling Blinds with Samsung Smartthings

We're being asked rather a lot at the moment if it's possible to control our blinds using Smartthings by Samsung. Smartthings is a low(ish) cost home control system that is possible to configure yourself to control a number of compatible devices within the home. It is exclusively distributed through Amazon and Currys/PC World. It uses z-wave technology, but doesn't appear to support a great number of other products "out of the box". Therein lies the problem!
