Why Buy Our Made To Measure Wooden Blinds
Where Can You Fit Wooden Blinds?
Wooden blinds are a fantastic addition to any interior design theme. Whether your space is modern or traditional, these blinds will help boost the elegance of your home.
Moreover, they offer great privacy benefits. To enjoy full privacy with almost any other window furnishing you have to block out all the light. With wooden Venetian blinds however, you can simply angle the slats to keep prying eyes out of your home while still allowing light to filter from outside.
This privacy makes natural wooden blinds the perfect addition to any bedroom or living room. However, for bathroom or kitchen windows we recommend you choose from our range of faux wooden blinds to avoid warping and cracking from high moisture levels in these areas. These elegant blinds retain much of the beauty of natural wood alternatives, while providing you with greater flexibility.

How To Measure For Wooden Blinds
When it comes to ordering your wooden Venetian blind, you'll be given two options for the fitting type - recess and exact. These refer to where your made-to-measure blind will fit in relation to the window.
Inside Recess (RECESS SIZE) - You will need this measurement if your new blind is to fit inside the window recess. Measure the width and drop from three different positions ensuring you provide the smallest measurement. We will then make the necessary deductions to ensure the blind fits neatly within the recess of your window.
Outside Recess (EXACT SIZE) - An exact size blind is the measurement you need to take if the blind will hang outside the recess, overlapping the window. Select how much to overlap the recess at each side, we recommend at least 7.5cm per side, as well as the top and bottom. As with the recess measurement, measure the width and the drop in three different positions ensuring you provide us with the smallest measurement. If you're concerned about measuring your blinds, you can benefit from our Surefit guarantee, for complete peace of mind.
