Handy Hints

 
When measuring, always look out for things like window handles or tiles and take their
position into account if necessary. This is so you can be sure of the perfect fit.
All our blinds can be fitted into the face of your window frame or wall, or into the top of the lintel.
This gives you complete control over the positioning of your blind.
