With so many variations of bespoke blinds to choose from, knowing where to start can be tricky. This can be particularly true if you’re not sure what you’re after, whether it is blinds for your home, office or stores. We appreciate it can be a difficult decision, but it doesn’t need to be. This is why we’ve got essential tips and questions to consider when it comes to choosing your bespoke blinds.
Decide on a budget for your bespoke blinds
First and foremost, settle on a budget that works for you and use it a guide your choices when it comes to your blinds. If you know this won’t work, then add in a little earmark for upper and lower thresholds to help accommodate for a particular deigns or style that you may fall in love with.

If that sounds ideal for you, here at Brixham Blinds, we have several budget options to cater to your needs.
Understand what you need blinds for
The last thing we would want is to fit you with bespoke blinds if they are not truly practical for the space they’re going to occupy. It’s easy to go for blinds simply because they look good. For example, if you go for a light fabric roller that looks beautiful in a bedroom that could potentially get dirty quickly in a kitchen, where Venetian blinds would be a better choice. We will always have a team on hand to help you but we would advise taking the time to fully verify your chosen dimensions, understand which wall mountings are safe to use, and how easy it will be to access and manipulate your bespoke blinds are installed.
Consider the lighting conditions
It seems obvious, but each room in your house, office or store will vary in lighting conditions and therefore, you may have to consider managing the amount of lighting that your rooms are exposed in. For example, if your home is south facing, the rooms on that side will enjoy most of the light, but if your view is blocked by trees or other barriers, this can be affected. Shutter blinds are a worthy buy because of their ability to control the light. If you or a member of your family struggle to sleep, consider blackout fabrics to keep the room dark when the sun comes up – who doesn’t love a lie-in on the weekends?
Bespoke blinds with safety in mind
Since 2004 in the UK it has been compulsory to protect against accidents and incidents in the home or other environments when it comes to blinds and shutters. In line with legislation, we have carefully considered each blind on an individual basis, to ensure child safety is an essential feature.
At Brixham Blinds we take our product safety incredibly seriously, as we believe that a home should be a place where a child is most safe. So we aim to ensure that any possible hazards are eliminated and any further risks are prevented. We offer a range of solutions for these instances and are more than happy to offer advice and guidance when choosing your blinds.
What maintenance is involved?
When you install bespoke blinds, it doesn’t just stop there. Depending on which types of blinds you opt for, like vertical blinds with moving parts and slats, you may need to consider replacing them in the future or at least cleaning them in the short-term. If you want a hassle-free blind, Venetian blinds can be easily wiped cleaned. When you choose bespoke blinds from Brixham Blinds, your maintenance is somewhat covered, though unfortunately, we can’t come over and clean them for you. But what we can offer you is made to measure blinds, designer styles and a five-year guarantee. The best thing about it, we have a 7 day turn around for measuring and can install within 48 hours.
