Ready Made Blinds

January 6, 2010

Ready made blinds are very popular and cheap do a search on Google and you can find them for as little as £10.00.

Why are they so cheap? Simply because they require a lot of effort on your part. Firstly they are usally mass produced to predefined sizes which means you will have to trim them down to fit. Secondly the fabrics used are more often than not, cheap and poor quality. Thirdly most of them use plastic or cardboard tubing, which overtime may bend.

So whats the alternative then? Simple answer a custom made blind, made to your exact measurements and using superior quality fabrics. No need to trim or mess about , simply un pack and fit. Ready made blinds may be cheap, but in the long run are they real value for money?
