Wooden venetian blinds technical information:
Colour co-ordinating cords and acorns with matching wooden valance.
Please note: if ordering wooden venetian blinds and your order is for the blinds to be made Exact, then the blind headrail will be provided with wooden returns to go with the top wood cover valance. This is an optional extra that hides the blind's headrail and the ends.
It is your choice if you use them or not, simply trim to size if not required. You would only use the returns if the blinds were to sit outside the recess free of window returns, and obstructions. The blind itself will not change in size only the wood valance.
If you decide not to use the returns, then simply cut the valance square to the width of your head rail with a small tenon saw.
Ordered as BLIND SIZE (EXACT): blind made to your exact width and drop given*(see note), will include brackets at ends, for blinds with end fixings. Ordered as RECESS (INSIDE MOUNT): we deduct 10mm from the width given, will include brackets at ends, for blinds with end fixings.
*Note: customers ordering venetian blinds should note that due to the nature of the manufacturing process involved, exact drops cannot always be achieved, and small tolerances due to ladder spacing's must be expected. Made To Measure Blinds can assure our customers that our production operatives take both optimum operation and aesthetic considerations into account when producing your blinds.
Consideration needs to be given if the intended use is for mounting a wooden blind over doors. We provide a chart at the foot of this page that shows approximate stack sizes, allowances would need to be made for the bracket location above the door to allow sufficient head height, secondly it would be considered that the raise and lower operation would generally be used less frequently than the slat tilt operation, as regular use of the raise option on a daily basis over doors for a blind that consisted of a large width and drop would put an unreasonable amount of wear and tear on the raise and lower cords that could cause the cord to fray, it is also important to maintain the full open angle on the raise cord lock when moving the blind up and down, as improper use can also cause cord to fray. We would not recommend the use of a wooden blind over a door if it is intended to be in constant daily use.

Our wooden venetians are made from Basswood. The wood is kiln dried which stabilises it. Real wood grown from sustained forests.
Please remember wood is a natural product, and the sample you receive is only to give you an indication of the shade. There may be some colour variation between slats, slats may have a small degree of twist or warp due to the natural nature of the product
over a period of time. All our wooden blinds come with colour co-ordinated headrails, cords and ladder braids and to further enhance your blinds
we also offer a range of traditional fabric tapes. These are available in two sizes,
18mm wide for 25mm and 35mm slats, or the larger 25mm wide for 50mm and 63mm slats.
We are also able to offer them in eight colours white, ivory, natural, grey, tan, russet, earth, graphite, taupe and jet.
When deciding on your choice of slat width you should consider that the larger the slat the more light enters the room when they are set
in the open position, this also creates a smaller stack when raised. Conversely, if you choose a larger slat size then less light will enter the
room when in an closed position. All slats are finished with co-ordinated stained ends and provided with cord-consolidators for child safety.
50, 63mm slated blinds supplied with 25mm wide tape.
Box brackets top / face and side fix options with centre support for larger widths. Stacking due to the thickness of the slats. Please note the stacking depths for the blinds when raised, these are approximate sizes for guidance only.
