Catherine says: “We needed blinds for our bay window, and initially looked at shutters, but decided on wooden Venetian blinds as an affordable alternative – we wanted blinds to provide us with privacy.
“Because the window is a bay and needs three blinds, we were a bit anxious about measuring it accurately, but we took our time and we watched the videos on Made To Measure Blinds’ website, which were really useful.”
The site provides a clear guide to the different kinds of blind available, from Venetian to Roller to Roman and Blackout. It also includes a detailed guide to colours and patterns so customers can pick exactly what they want.
“As the site suggested, we made a template to the width of the blind and placed our order – and it worked out perfectly,” said Catherine.
The ordered blinds arrived exactly when the couple expected them, and they found them simple to put up.
“When you order things online, one of your fears is that they will arrive damaged, but our blinds were really well-packaged and arrived in perfect condition,” said Catherine.
“You don’t often come across a company as good as this one; we can’t praise them enough. You can even ring them to get advice if you need any help with measuring and fitting.”
The Kings are now delighted with their blinds, which they feel give them the privacy they need combined with an elegant look.
“Like shutters, you can tilt Venetian blinds to give you a little privacy from people walking past,” said Catherine. “We tilt ours down so the sun still comes into the room.”
The couple are now planning to order more blinds for their home from Made To Measure Blinds.
“We’re very pleased,” said Catherine. “The quality of the blinds is amazing – we couldn’t have asked for more.”
