Ultimate Tips To Consider Before Getting Bespoke Blinds?

Considerations Before Buying Bespoke Blinds

Bespoke blinds are an excellent way to elevate your interior décor. With a wide range of styles, aesthetics, colours and materials, bespoke blinds are sure to suit just about any home or office space. Before embarking on your new purchase, it’s important to consider a few factors first. Here are some key considerations before purchasing bespoke blinds:

Style, Aesthetic, Colour & Material

The design of bespoke blinds will affect the aesthetic of your interiors. It’s essential to choose the correct style that complements the interior design and functionality of each of your rooms. Several window-covering blinds styles are available, including:

  • Roman Blinds offer a classic look, with panels that fold up neatly when the cord is pulled.
  • Vertical Blinds are suitable for larger window panes, easy to maintain and perfect for creating a clean, seamless look.
  • Venetian Blinds are a classic blind style with horizontal slats, perfect for smaller windows, and come in different materials such as PVC, wood, and aluminium.
  • Automated Blinds provide remote control access to open, close, and adjust the blinds by scheduling or using voice commands.

As well as considering which type of blind is best for your space, you should also consider the materials of your window dressing blinds. Do you want slim metal blinds or a waterproof PVC finish? Or maybe you are interested in a natural wood or soft fabric for your blinds. Consider what each material offers, whether it be moisture resistant, style options, insulation or durability.

Size Of Your Windows

Another consideration when choosing bespoke blinds is the size of your windows. The size of the window will usually determine the size of the blinds required. For larger windows, vertical blinds tend to be the best choice, while smaller windows may suit Venetian blinds.

Fitting & Installation Of Blinds

Fitting and installation of bespoke blinds on your window panes can be tricky, especially if you don’t have proper tools. At Concorde Blinds, our specialists can provide you with a free quote for measurements and installation. With our experts, you’re guaranteed that the bespoke blinds perfectly fit your windowpane.


Setting a budget for your made-to-measure blinds is important, particularly as the price of bespoke blinds can vary depending on the style, materials, and features you choose. If you want a more modern, sleek look, automated/motorised blinds or Roman blinds may be a good choice. However, if you are on a budget, Venetian blinds may be a more cost-effective option as they are made with more budget-friendly materials such as PVC, wood, and metal.

Local Retailers

Supporting local businesses is important. Choosing a local retailer like Concorde Blinds can provide you with a more personalised and tailored service than if you were to purchase blinds from an online retailer, or large impersonal corporations. A local firm will also often provide you with quick blinds maintenance and repair services, which can come in handy. To ensure you’re choosing a reliable company, you can read online reviews and ask for family and friends’ recommendations.
