FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
CAN I HAVE A ROUGH ESTIMATE OF COST?
As all of our blinds are made to measure, we are unable to give out a quote without a size. With certain styles of blind, we will also require a choice of fabric, as this also can affect the cost. For an accurate quote, we would require the size of your window and a selection of fabric (see our guide on how to measure). If you would like to use our ‘Free and No Obligation’ measuring service, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01745 815549 to arrange an appointment.
HOW CAN I MEASURE MY WINDOW?
In the Blind Industry we work of two sizes; either Recess or Exact Size. A Recess size lets your blind sit flush within the window recess. The easiest way to measure your window if you are looking for it to fit within your window recess is to measure the recess from one edge to the other, and from the top of the recess to the bottom. This should be done at three different points to give us an accurate measurement. If you are looking for your blind to fit outside of a recess, then the measurement we would require is the Exact Size of the blind. Measure the width and height that you want you're blind to be. Again, this should be done at three different points to provide an accurate measurement.
