Some useful tips for you before ordering your Made to Measure Roman Blinds
1: Measuring Roman Blinds: Please use a steel tape when measuring your blinds, as fabric tapes give a more inaccurate result. Other good ways to get exactly the right measurements is to measure your old blinds if you are replacing existing blinds.
2: Roman Blinds include all the fixtures and fittings needed for the installation. It is super easy to put them up! They can be fixed to the ceiling (top-fix) or wall (face-fix).
3: When you are choosing your fabric for your made to measure roman blinds, please remember that the fabric will look darker in larger areas.
4: If you want to create an illusion of higher windows and let maximum amount of natural light into your room – the blinds can be fixed much higher than the actual window. This way when the blind is pulled up the window looks much bigger and room much higher. However please remember to add then some extra length to your roman blind drop. Please contact us first if you would be using a bonded lining, as this could bulk up your blind.
5: We can make all our fabrics to roman blinds – unless stated otherwise. Sheer linen fabrics can be made also to roman blinds without lining- This way you will get more light decorative roman blinds. However, if you prefer more functional roman blinds for example for the bedroom or living room consider blackout or thermal lining – linings will give more body and structure to your blinds too.
6: Before making any decisions please order your free sample swatches of the roman blind fabric, which you are considering. The photos on our website are close representation of the colours due to the different screen settings it is impossible to replicate the colours so they would be the same on every screen.
7: All our blinds are machine made – when ordering blackout lining on your blinds, you will have minimal light coming through the needle hols from the sewing machine. If you would prefer not to have these, you can contact us for a quote for a handmade blind.
8: Especially for the bedroom blinds it might be a good idea to add some extra width to the blind on the sides (if the space allows that) so it prevents the light leaking from the sides.
