Mind the gap: 5 advantages of made to measure blinds
When it comes to buying new blinds for your home, generally speaking there are two options available to you: made to measure or off the shelf.
Off the shelf are the ready made option, packaged up and all made to the same specification, whereas made to measure offers you the flexibility to have a blind that meets your exact needs and is tailored to your specific requirements.
So, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of made to measure blinds so you can be best informed to make the right decision.
Better size and fit
Very few windows actually come as a standard size, therefore finding blinds to fit them perfectly can be a very difficult task! With made to measure blinds, your windows are specifically measured so that blinds can be made to fit them exactly. This helps in many ways as they keep the light out and offer better privacy as there are less gaps. A perfectly fitting blind can also increase your home’s energy efficiency as the warmth is kept in and the cold draughts out.
Range of fabrics
Having free rein to choose your own fabrics is one of the luxuries that comes with choosing custom made blinds. Not only will you be able to find something that is the exact colour, pattern and style to complement the room, but you can also rest assured knowing it is an excellent quality material too. Don’t forget to ask to see some samples first before making your final decision.
Range of linings
When designing your blinds you can opt for an extra layer to line the back of the blind. If having total darkness is important to you then choosing a blackout material would be ideal, or you could simply go for a thicker lining to insulate your room better.
Made to measure gives you the option to personalise your blinds to suit your own individual style and taste. For instance, you could request to have beading or lace for the perfect finishing touches.
On the whole, perfect fit blinds are made to much higher standards than regular blinds. Their excellent quality makes them durable and more economical in the long term as they shouldn’t need replacing as regular at standard blinds do.
After looking at the top 5 advantages to choosing made to measure blinds, it is clear to see the benefits you will receive, however there are other factors that need to be considered as well. What sort of budget you have to work with, what the blinds will be used for and how you need them to function, all contribute to the overall decision. But with made to measure blinds, one thing that is certain is that you are in control of how they turn out, so you can get exactly what you want.
