If you couldn't tell already, we're big fans of window blinds here at Luna Blinds Nottingham. Window blinds are one of the most popular ways to dress your window and for good reason. There are a huge range of window blind types, fabrics and styles which make finding the perfect window blind for your tastes and budget easier than ever.
There can be a common misconception that ordering window blinds is expensive or difficult with many people left feeling left with a lack of advice and no idea of how much their window blinds will cost. We've decided to take a look at the benefits of made to measure window blinds and how to overcome potential issues holding you back.
Reasons to buy made to measure window blinds
We'd be lying if we said that made to measure window blinds weren't likely to be more expensive than ready made ones, however that shouldn't stop you from ordering your perfect window blinds:
The Exact Fit – not all window blinds are equal. If you are buying ready made window blinds, the temptation may be to measure once regardless of the blind type you require. Whether you're looking for vertical blinds or wooden venetian blinds, it all has an impact on how and where you need to measure your windows. By going made to measure, you can be sure that your blinds will fit perfectly regardless of the type you choose.
Efficiency – By ensuring your blinds fit correctly, you will be able to reduce more sunlight, create more privacy and most important keep your rooms cool or warm depending on the season. With energy efficiency as important as it is in today's world, your window blinds can go a long way to helping improve the cost of your heating bills. Look for blinds such as roller blinds with blackout and thermal linings to get the most bang for your buck.
Range of fabrics – by ordering made to measure blinds, you open yourself up to a huge range of fabrics and materials that aren't available off the shelf. This is particularly important for blinds such as roman blinds which come in a range of gorgeous materials you wouldn't want to miss out on.
Affordable made to measure blinds
Even with the huge range of benefits it's understandable to be concerned about the cost your new home renovations. Made to measure blinds do not have to be expensive and there are several ways to make your new blinds affordable and work to your budget.
Everyday Value fabrics – There a large number of simple but stylish fabrics that are very affordable for blinds such as vertical and roller blinds. For example, we have an Everyday Value range which means you can get 3 made to measure vertical blinds for just £189, including fitting!
Fauxwood not real wood – As with opting for a cheaper fabric, by going for faux wood blinds of wooden blinds you can save a considerable amount of money. Whilst you won't get the natural, real wood finish, our faux wood blinds look amazing, are completely warp and waterproof and come in almost as many colours and finished as their real wood counter part.
Installing it yourself – we always recommend having a professional service such as the one we offer to measure and install your window blinds. With that said, if you feel confident enough to go it alone, you can save money on the leg work when you buy your blinds and fit them yourself.
