Should you get made to measure blinds

When it comes to selecting blinds for your windows, the choice often boils down to opting between off-the-shelf and made-to-measure options. This decision plays a pivotal role in determining the impact on both the visual appeal and practical functionality of your space. Here’s why you should consider getting your blinds made to measure.

Tailored fit for your windows

Off-the-shelf blinds come in standard sizes, limiting their suitability for windows of varying dimensions. Made-to-measure blinds, on the other hand, are precisely crafted to fit your specific window measurements. This tailored approach ensures a perfect fit, eliminating unsightly gaps that might compromise privacy or allow unwanted light to seep through.

Enhanced aesthetics and style

Choosing made-to-measure blinds allows for customisation in design, fabric, and style, ensuring they complement the existing décor seamlessly. Whether you prefer sleek roller blinds, elegant Roman blinds, or practical Venetian blinds, customisation options enable you to match the blinds to your interior design scheme, elevating the overall aesthetics of the space.

Unique window shapes and configurations

For non-standard window shapes such as bay windows, skylights, or unusually shaped windows, off-the-shelf blinds might not provide adequate coverage or functionality. Made-to-measure blinds offer a solution tailored to fit these unique window configurations, maximising their practicality and visual appeal.

Precision in light and privacy control

The precise measurements of made-to-measure blinds ensure optimal light and privacy control. With exact fitting, these blinds effectively block out light when closed, offering enhanced privacy and insulation. This precision allows for greater control over the ambiance within your space, enabling you to regulate light levels according to your preferences.

Considerations before choosing made-to-measure blinds

While made-to-measure blinds offer numerous advantages, there are certain things you should consider should before making a decision:

Budget: Customisation often comes with a higher price tag compared to off-the-shelf options. Assess your budget and weigh the value of customisation against the cost.

Timeframe: Made-to-measure blinds might take longer to be manufactured and delivered compared to ready-made ones. Consider the timeframe for installation if you have a specific deadline.

Professional installation: Ensure that you have access to professional installation services, as precise fitting is crucial for the effectiveness and aesthetics of made-to-measure blinds.

Choosing between off-the-shelf and made-to-measure blinds boils down to immediate convenience versus tailored perfection. While off-the-shelf options offer quick solutions, made-to-measure blinds provide a customised, precise fit that complements your interior design and caters to your specific functional needs. Ultimately, the decision hinges on whether you prioritise immediate availability and cost or prefer a long-term investment in quality, aesthetics, and functionality for your living or working space.

I write this email in appreciation of the excellent service provided to me on three separate occasions when I have purchased blinds from The Blinds Gallery for our house. I have purchased approximately forty blinds, both manually and electronically controlled and have found the process quite seamless.
On each occasion when dealing with the staff I have received excellent service. The sales team have been very knowledgeable regarding the product they are selling.
Your front of house Hayley does her job to perfection and does an excellent job in promoting your brand. John, from a service and a technical side of the business does a great job and is very knowledgeable with the products and procedures. Nothing was too much trouble.
Nick. He is an excellent trades person and is an excellent example of the quality that The Blinds Gallery offers. I have recommended The Blinds Gallery to several friends and family as we have big windows where the up/down blinds are required.
Hayley and John, please pass on my sincere thanks to Nick for his excellent trades skills and forward this email to the appropriate people.

I have just had the guys leave from the installation of my new curtains. I couldn’t jump on here quick enough and let you know what an amazing experience we have had and they look fantastic!

Right from the moment of meeting you Ferne, helping pick out the curtains and being patient with the decision making of two girls who can’t make up their mind, to the two men who came to install them. They were amazing, there was no mess left, they were polite and did such a great job at the install.

We will definitely be back to finish the rest of the house soon!
Thank you again!

Laura & Kiara - Wellard

I wish to say how delighted I am with the blinds that you recently made and installed for me. I must also mention that your prices were excellent compared to other quotes I received.

Janine - Jolimont

I would just like to say what wonderful customer service Michelle gave me when I came into the display showroom. I had a good idea of what I wanted but Michelle made suggestions and recommendations and showed me products I wasn't familiar with.

Amanda - Aveley

I have found your blinds give good value for price, and the installers are very pleasant and helpful. I wanted to let you know what a good experience dealing with your company has been.

Just wanted to say a BIG thank you for our amazing shutters they look amazing and really finish the house off. Lee was great to - very thorough and clean. Customer service was of very high standard and i would have no hesitation in recommending you. Thanks again.

Dea - Gwelup

Just to say "thank you" to everyone involved in the quoting, measuring, manufacture and instillation of internal shutters. We had a few hiccoughs upstairs but these problems were addressed and resolved. Downstairs went like clockwork.  Manufacturing time was much less and instillation was quick, clean and efficient thanks to Lee and Say who were like a well oiled machine. Great teamwork. Absolutely love the product and due to the efficiencies and the manner in which problems were handled, I would have no hesitation in recommending The Blinds Gallery.
