Q. How much will it cost to get measured up for blinds?

Q. How much do you charge to fit the blinds, do you have an hourly rate?
A. We don’t charge for fitting either, the entire service is free, all you pay for is the blinds!

Q. How much will a new blind cost?
A. It is very hard for us to give you an accurate price without knowing what type of blind; we sell Venetian blinds, vertical blinds, Roman blinds, wooden blinds, metal blinds, pleated blinds or roller blinds. Also we would need to know the colour & size of the blinds, not to mention if you require any accessories. To give you an indication our prices start from £48.

Q. What area do you cover?
A. We conduct a home consultation visit, free measuring and fitting service for our Blinds throughout Northamptonshire, from Towcester to Corby!

Q. What types of blinds can you show me?
A. We have a variety of blind samples in our van, if you have a specific type in mind do let us know when you make your home consultation but we generally carry a nice selection which can include Roman Blinds, Vertical Blinds, Wooden Venetian Blinds, Metal Venetian Blinds, Pleated Blinds, Photo Blinds, Roller Blinds and a couple of specialist blinds as well.

Q. How long will it take for my blinds to arrive?
A. Usually the whole process from the home consultation, Measuring, ordering through to fitting takes about 2 weeks. If you need an express service, have a chat with Martin and we will see what we can do. Please bear in mind the photo blinds will take longer due to the printing processes.

Q. Are you part of a franchise or a big group?
