Simplicity is what we adore in an interior. Something can be made both beautiful and simple in one fell swoop. It is so plain yet it is overflowing with elegance and sophistication. We feel full when surrounded by these interior elements. No wonder, we just love being a homebody.
There is more to this blind than the style. It is a practical solution to your lighting and privacy woes. Thus, you can rest without being bothered by your too bright space or spectators outside.

No matter what type of blind you require, measuring your windows is easy with our simple instructions.
When the blinds are required to fit inside the window recess.
Select this option if you wish to supply the size of the recess into which the blinds will fit. To provide this measurement, select "inside recess" as the measurement option. This will require measurement of the window in 3 places, as shown to the right; please provide us with the smallest measurement.
On all blinds except Roller Blinds and Vision Blinds we will deduct a small amount to ensure the blinds clear the sides and bottom of the recess, allowing for correct operation. We will make a deduction of 10mm from the width, 5mm off each side and up to 10mm from the drop. On Roller Blinds and Vision Blinds we only allow approximately 2mm deduction on width measurement as this will lessen the fabric gap.
This is a guide with an understanding that the minimum depth for the bracket may mean that the blinds and bracket will sit outside the window recess.
|Roller Blinds||30mm - 70mm|
|Double Roller Blinds||30mm - 100mm|
|Vertical Blinds 89mm||30mm - 85mm|
|Vertical Blinds 127mm||30mm - 90mm|
|Aluminium Venetian Blinds||20mm - 35mm|
|Timber-look Nova Blinds||30mm - 70mm|
|Cedar Venetian Blinds||30mm - 70mm|
|Panel Glide Blinds||30mm - 65mm|
|Vision Blinds||55mm - 85mm|
|Sheer Curtains (Vertical Sheer Blinds)||30mm - 90mm|
When the blinds are required to hang outside the window recess.
For all types of blinds follow these instructions if you want your blind to hang outside the window recess:
|Fixture Guide||Recommended Philips Head|
|Wood||¾" 8 gauge for recess fit and ½" 8 gauge for face fit|
|Steel||½" 6 gauge|
|Aluminium||½ 8 gauge or tech screw|
|Brick||Green plug and 1 ½ 8 gauge self tapper|
Depending on if your blind is face fit or recess fit place the brackets in position, and with a pencil mark the surface of the wall or window recess for drilling screw holes. Brackets should be positioned at each end of the head rail and spread intermediately across the width as required approx 110m apart.
Note: If you are fixing your Romans within the recess make sure you leave adequate distance from the window surface for your blind to gather when pulled up.
When you are happy that you have correct positions for the brackets pre drill the screw holes and fix brackets securely.
On the top of the head box you will see a lip/groove which locks into place on the front edge of the bracket, then push the head rail backwards and the rear of the head rail fully up to lock the blind into the brackets securely.
Secure the safety cleat supplied, firmly to the wall at the appropriate position to keep tension on the control chain and avoid a choking hazard. It is important to keep chains and cords safely away from children your new blind will have a safety warning tag attached please read carefully and do not remove.
To operate your new blind use chain control to lift and lower, using a steady tension and movement and avoid jerking or tugging of the chain.
Blockout Fabrics, as the name suggests are designed to ‘block-out’ the harsh, fading sunlight when needed. They are ideal for rooms in which persons need to sleep or where there are paintings or furniture which could be damaged by hard sunlight.
Translucent refers to fabrics which allow in the natural light but do not allow you to see the outside view through them. They function much like opaque glass. The light comes in but they provide excellent privacy.
Sunscreen Fabrics are designed to allow outside vision into the room or area they’re shielding but reduce the amount of heat and glare which gets in. They’re ideal for areas where you want to enjoy light all year around but want to maximise the capacity to shade in Summer, in particular.
