Window blinds are part of the fabric of our homes and offices. They are a quick and easy way to finish a window and they don’t cost a fortune like drapes so easily can. Mass produced blinds have the downside of being one-size fits all. Which often means they don’t really fit anything well. If you’re fed up of that inch either side of the blind there is an alternative!
Custom window blinds online have the advantage of being a step up from the mass produced items, but still not so expensive that the cost makes them prohibitive.
Online businesses are able to manage their costs in a way that bricks and mortar shops have trouble doing. Their showroom is their website – so they have quite the challenge making sure you can get a full idea of their capabilities. But once that is done, and it becomes ever easier to create a decent web site, then an online store can give you everything you would get in the store while keeping prices at the level you will feel is realistic. This model works for something that is as tangible as window blinds.
Your part in the exchange is to be able to measure. And even at that, there are only two or at most three directions. Width and length obviously, and perhaps you will need the depth of the windowsill if you want a specific slat size.
It really couldn’t be easier. You can probably get hold of a sample of the material to check you really like it in-situ before you buy, and at the end, you will have a blind that actually fits the window and doesn’t have an extra six inches of mass production sitting at the bottom.
