Yes, that's the great thing about our Double Roller Blinds! Due to the two separate side controls, you will have the flexibility in controlling the amount of light and privacy you want in your home.

Roller Blinds Explained

Roller blinds are suitable for most types of windows and doors.

We can manufacture Roller blinds up to 500cm wide, perfect for large areas to cover such as bi-fold doors - whilst taking up very little space when fully rolled up.

We supply universal brackets, so they can be top fixed, side fixed or face fixed so you need not worry that you need any different bracket for your installation type!

Roller blinds come in a huge range of fabrics, colours and finishing options. which makes them ideal for use in all different environments.

Features such as blackout, thermal, flame retardent and waterproof to name just a few means that we can ensure the blind chosen for your room is extremely practical.

Given the product is relatively quick to manufacture, it makes this stylish blind type one of the cheapest products available whilst being of of the simplest ways to transform a room.

The "Standard Roll" option means the fabric will roll from the back of the tube, closer to the glass. This brings benefits such as better thermal retention and light reflection (particularly useful for blackout fabrics!).

The "Reverse Roll" option does just the opposite, meaning the fabric will roll from the front of the tube, away from the glass. This is beneficial if there are window handles to clear, and usually a preferred option for creating the seamless look.

The wrap around bottom bar, is the most desired option across the Blinds industry, as it gives a seamless look without any sewing lines or "pin pricks" across the fabric. You may ask why do other competitors use the "Open Sew Pocket"? Quite simply, it is the cheapest and quickest method of manufacture - we believe in quality and therefore do not use this method.

The simple answer is no.

A White Plastic chain comes as standard across all our Roller blinds. We give upgrade options in both Plastic and Metal chain options, so you can personalise your blind to match household accessories such as Brass door handles or Silver wall sockets.

We offer 3 fitting options for our Roller blinds, Recess being the most popular fitting type. However not all window's are the same so you may need to choose a different option and we will explain below...

Recess

When selecting a Recess fitting option, we will allow a tolerance in manufacture from the sizes you have provided so that the blind you receive will fit inside your window.
For reference, the fabric width is always 35mm less than your Width measurement when you choose "Recess", this is the industry standard deduction to allow the blind to operate freely when installed.

Exact Size

When selecting an Exact Size fitting option, we recommend that this measurement type is only used when installing outside of the window recess, where you know the exact position of the outside bracket to bracket measurement of where the blind is to be installes.
For reference, the fabric width will be 35mm less than your Width measurement when you choose "Exact Size", this is the industry standard deduction to allow the blind to operate freely when installed.

Fabric Width

When selecting a Fabric Width fitting option, it is recommended that this measurement type is only used when installing outside of the window recess, where you know the exact width between the edges of the fabric cloth that you wish to cover for the specific area.
For reference, the overall width size of the blind will be 35mm larger than your Width measurement when you choose "Fabric Width", this is to accommodate the brackets and to allow the blind to operate freely when installed; so please ensure you have sufficient space to allow for the brackets when choosing this measurement option.

Wooden Blinds Explained

There are two sets of controls on a Wooden blind. To raise and lower the blind, the cord would be on the right hand side of the blind and when you pull this cord the bottom bar of the blind moves upwards, and each slat stacks on top of each other until the blind reaches the headrail where it cannot be raised any higher. To tilt the slats, there are two cords on the left hand side of the blind. Pulling one cord will make the slats close downwards and pulling the other cord will then make the slats close upwards. 

Whilst Wooden blinds do block plenty of light out and will give complete privacy when closed, they are not a blackout product.

The slats on wood blinds when closed do overlap each other, however there will still be light creeping round each individual slat.

This decision is purely down to personal choice. Tapes are simply an accessory to a Wooden Blind but given the look, helped by the home decor Instagrammers, they are an increasingly popular option.

Tapes, manufactured from cotton, conceal the small punch holes in the Wooden Slats where the cords run up and down, which for some feel that this gives a greater level of privacy and improves the aesthetic look of the overall blind given the herringbone design.

Tapes are a fixed part of the blind, and cannot be removed if you change your mind.

How Many Tapes Will Be On My Blind?

We cannot change the amount of tapes that are on a blind, they are spaced very specifically so that the slats that rest on them do not bend or sag under their own weight. If you would like to know how many tapes, simply send us an eMail or call us with your width measurement and we can let you know straight away.

What Size Tape Will Be On My Blind?

We will supply a 19mm width tape on a 25mm slat size blind, a 25mm width on a 35mm slat and a 38mm width on a 50mm slat as standard.

There is the option to have a 25mm width tape on a 50mm slat size, however this option is not available on our website and you must eMail or call us to express your desire to choose this option, there is no additional charge if you chose this width.

On all our Wooden Blinds it is normal for up to two slats to sit on the bottom bar, this is to cover the punch holes in the bottom bar and to minimise the light seepage. Sometimes you will have a second slat sat on the bottom bar, this is there to block the light when closed, and even though it may look like it shouldn't be there - trust us it is meant to be!

Measuring for our wooden blinds is straightforward. How you want your blinds to fit - inside the recess or outside of it - will determine where you measure. Check out our full measuring guide for wooden blinds for step-by-step instructions.

Each of our wooden blinds come with a full fitting guide which can be downloaded from our website, along with a short demonstration video. We recommend reading and watching these carefully before installation to get the perfect fit for your wooden blinds.

Vertical Blinds Explained

When measuring for your vertical blinds remember that the drop length will include both the headrail and slats. It is also always best practice to measure in three places to get the most accurate measurements. See our step-by-step guide for more information.

Vertical blinds can either be fixed to the lintel or the window frame; make sure you know which option you want before starting installation and follow the relevant instructions, downloadable from our website. There is also a handy how-to video.

Clean your vertical blinds by detaching them from the headrail. Then, you can clean the headrail and hoover the slats using the brush attachment. You can use a damp cloth to wipe them down, but ensure they dry fully.

Vertical blinds have a huge advantage over other blinds because they cover much taller spaces. They are perfect for larger, floor-to-ceiling windows like in bi-fold doors, conservatories or offices. With a choice of materials and colours, they are highly versatile.

Our range of vertical blinds includes a vast array of colours, from the bright and bold to tasteful neutrals so you can choose the right look for your room. Samples of all our blinds are available so you can see colours and materials in person.

Our Vertical Blinds are stitched with transparent thread. Please note if on a blackout fabric the thread may pull through the blackout lining and appear dark.

Motorised Blinds Explained

Due to the electric components of motorised blinds, you must never soak your blinds or use a damp cloth with them. Keep on top of dust build-up by using your hoover with the brush attachment, or use what's called a dry sponge to remove dust and dirt.

Motorised blinds are completely unique from other choices because they give you ultimate control over the light in your room. Use the remote or app to raise or lower them from your bed, or link them up to the Tahoma Switch home hub to set them to a daily schedule.

Because our motorised blind range includes many of our popular styles you can choose the best match for your room. Some of our styles only have a motorised tilt, but others can be raised and lowered, so this is important to factor in to your decision.

There are motorised versions of many of our popular styles of blind including roller, venetian and even some of our wooden range. To ensure you get the most accurate measurements, you'll need to follow the measuring guide for your chosen style.

Motorised blinds are still fitted according to the instructions of the type of blind you have selected, but there are a few extra steps. A charger and remote is not included and must be purchased separately. They can also be controlled via Somfy Tahoma home hubs.

The charging port is at the end of the motor within the roller tube of the blind, you can select which side you would like the motor end to be on to help with ease of access to plug this into the charger, the blinds can be charged hung or taken down. 

We do also have an extension cord available for the chargers which is 240cm in length, click here to shop.
