Made to measure blinds look lovely, don’t they? They fit perfectly in your window and you can chose anything you like. Sometimes it can be a bit difficult to choose between the window dressings you can just pick up and install from the high street, and those which will be made and fitted for you. Often budget is one of the biggest deciding factors, but purpose can play a part as well. |
Made to measure blinds: the pros
When you buy something off the shelf, you have very little choice in what you get. That might mean the blind is ill fitting, it might mean the colours don’t quite go, or that you can’t get the pattern that you wanted to. When you’ve spent a long time making decisions about the other parts of the decoration in your room, it’s unlikely you’re going to want to finish the look off with something which doesn’t quite go. You have carefully chosen paints, wallpapers, rugs and soft furnishings and they deserve better, don’t they?
By ordering blinds you can get exactly what you’ve imaged, from the style of blind, to the colour and the fit. Even the fabric choices and whether or not there is a lining is entirely up to you.
The fit is one of the key benefits of buying made to measure blinds. The options you can pick up in shops tend to be for standardised windows, and while this will work for some people there will be many more whose homes aren’t quite that standard fit. It will mean that while you think you’ve made a convenient purchase you will then have to tailor it to your frames, and there is the potential for this to go wrong.
By ordering made to measure blinds, someone will come out and measure your window for you. They will be trained to do this, and they will be able to ensure that this is spot on first time. They will also be able to come back and do the actual fitting for you, and if there’s anything not quite right they can make adjustments or even take the blinds away again for more work if necessary (although this is very rarely needed).
The only real downside then is the price, although many see this as being easily offset by the quality and the finish of their new window dressings. While you might have to wait slightly longer, you’ll be able to rest easy in the knowledge that everything will just work, and fit perfectly with the rest of your décor.
