The wise sayings of Henry Ford and why we help you make a choice

August 29, 2015

Acacia-PillarboxApart from your friendly local Goth there aren’t too many people who subscribe to the Henry Ford school of thought when it comes to colour choice.

The American industrialist and founder of the Ford Motor Company famously said: ‘Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black.’

Thankfully manufacturers swiftly moved on from that dictatorial attitude, and all imaginable colours are now available. Car specs vary enormously even within the same model range. You might even think we’ve moved too far in the opposite direction, with too much choice.

Even buying a cup of coffee is no longer the simple process it once was, for example, and a bewildering range is set before you at Costa, Starbucks or whichever coffee empire is your favoured brand.

At Made To Measure Blinds we like to offer the greatest possible choice. Here is the big difference, though — we don’t want you to be frustrated by the immense range which might leave you wondering where to start.

We’re always happy for you to pick our brains over the phone and we also provide clear guides that show you how to measure up before placing your order and then clear fitting instructions in written and video form.
