Frequently Asked Questions

Home Visits

Blind fabrics are best seen in your home rather than in a showroom or the internet.

Visits are arranged at a time suitable to you - day or evening. During the visit we will measure the windows while you look through the sample books. A separate appointment is then arranged to fit your blinds.

All blinds are fitted by ourselves - we do not use sub-contractors.

Child Safety

There is strict legislation regarding safety issues particularly relating to cords. We provide ‘breaks’ and wall fixtures for the operating cords.

No Cords Options

You can avoid cords altogether on some blinds by opting for pleated blinds (spring operation) or electrically operated blinds.

A rechargeable battery operation is increasingly popular.

Also available are 'smart cords' which retract when not in use.

No Drill Options

Clients sometimes prefer to avoid drilling into the window frames for the blind supports. Systems are available for PVC frames which avoid drilling any holes. This is particularly useful in conservatories.


Blinds require little or no maintenance. An occasional light dusting is generally sufficient.

Some fabrics may be wiped down with a damp cloth.

Roman blinds can be removed for dry cleaning.


All blinds come with a 12 month guarantee as standard.
