About Venetian Blinds

Our range of Venetian blinds includes slats made from either aluminium or wood. Choose from slat widths ranging from 15mm to 50mm to suit the size of the window or the effect you wish to create.

There are two controls to operate Venetian blinds. A cord controls the height of the blind and either a cord or a wand controls the angle of the slat. Our 50mm Venetians come with a cord to tilt the blind, whereas 15mm and 25mm Venetians come with a rod to tilt the blind.

Make sure the slats are in the open position when the blind is raised or lowered.

All our blinds are made to your exact requirements, so you can choose which side you want each of these controls to be.

Please note for Wood Venetians there is a tolerance when manufacturing of up to 3mm on width (either way) and between 2 to 4cm on drop (depending on slat size) to allow for slat movement.

Headrail dimensions:
Depth - Aluminium 15mm = 3.2cm, Aluminium 25mm = 3.2cm, Wood 25mm = 5cm, Wood 35mm = 5cm, Wood 50mm = 7cm (Note: All wood Venetian depths do not include the valance)
Width - Exact blind = same as width specified, Recess blind = 1cm less than width specified

About Vertical Blinds

Our Vertical blinds are made from high quality fabrics in 89mm and 127mm width strips, which are called louvres. The louvres hang from the headrail and are linked by a chain at the bottom.
Vertical blinds have two controls. One allows the blind louvres to be tilted to the left or the right. This means you can block the light out, let it in, or filter it by tilting the louvres to an angle. The other one lets you pull the louvres fully back, either to the left or the right. Or they can split in the centre like a pair of curtains.

All our blinds are made to your exact requirements, so you can choose which side you want each of these controls to be. You can also decide how you would like you blinds to draw back. All vertical blinds come with a white headrail and white components.

Bunch side indicates the side you want the louvres to 'bunch' at when pulled from the window - left, right or both sides (split).

Please note, width measurements will be rounded down, for example if you order a 74cm to 74.9cm exact measurement you will recieve a 74cm wide blind, if you order a 74cm to 74.9cm recess measurement you will recieve a 73cm wide blind.

For the drop we will automatically take off 5cm, 4 to accommodate the headrail and 1cm so the louvres does not touch the window sill or floor, therefore please measure to the window sill or floor.

Headrail dimensions:
Depth - 3cm
Width - Exact blind = same as width specified, Recess blind = 1cm less than width specified

About Pleated Blinds

Pleated blinds are available in two pleat widths - 20mm They feature easy to use cord controls to raise and lower the blind.

To operate 20mm: with the blind in the closed position pull the operating cords to the left to release, (you will hear the cord lock click), let the cords slide through your hand. When you have reached the desired position, pull the cords to the right to lock.
All our blinds are made to your exact requirements, so you can choose which side you want your controls to be.

We recommend that you fully open your Pleated blind every week to ensure the Pleated effect is maintained.

Our Woodweave blinds come with a matching valance, made to a 12cm drop to conceal the pulleys and cordlock.
