Keep Calm and Show Us Your Blinds!

August 7, 2012

We know they are out there.  Those inherited draperies that your Mum gave you.  Those bent or broken blinds that have seen better days?  Is the fabric on your window coverings so old that you cannot even pretend to call it vintage?   Do you run to shut the spare room door whenever company calls so that no one sees your unfortunate blinds?

Made to Measure Blinds CompetitionWe are on a mission to uncover Britain’s ugliest blinds and window coverings.  Pull out your camera and take a photo of your monstrosity and give us a quick description why you think your window deserves to be a finalist in our fun contest!  Winners will be decided based on the photo and the description so tell us how much you dislike your current drapery or blind and convince us that you are most in need of window blind intervention!

Contest closes on August 31st, 2012.  Prizes of Made to Measure Blinds UK gift vouchers will be awarded in the amounts of £200 (first prize), £100 (second prize) and £50 (third prize).

Please note that all entrants must be aged 21 and older.  There is no cash value for the prize vouchers.  They may be redeemed for blinds merchandise only. Staff of Made to Measure Blinds UK or family members are not eligible to participate.
