The benefits of made to measure blinds are myriad. In today’s blog we’ll investigate a few of the reasons why made to measure blinds will help you make the perfect addition to any room.

Maximum functionality – size and fit

The first consideration for any window dressing should always be function. Before we consider the aesthetic or secondary practical benefits, we need to ensure our blinds effectively help manage external light entering our homes. Afterall, there is no point in having a blind if it doesn’t fill your window and stop the light coming through the edges.

Blinds purchased from the hight street may not be the right size as there is no standard window size. If you mistakenly pick the wrong dimensions, you may end up with poor light control – or if its too big for your window, perilously cut it to fit. This can lead to extra expense if done incorrectly.

If you invest in a made to measure blind however, it will be made to the exact specifications of your window. All you will need to do is follow a measuring guide that matches your chosen style. You can find some great video guides here.

With a made to measure blind, you have hundreds of possibilities. Moreover, you don’t have to worry about the right size being available in your chosen colour because it will be made specially for you. With countless options to chose from in different colours, tones, textures and patterns; with a bit of research you can find the perfect blind to enhance your décor whether its inspired by Scandi chic, traditional style, minimalism or something you’ve divined yourself.

Lining options

Earlier, we referenced the secondary practical benefits – so what are they exactly? Well, when you select a blind from Blinds Direct you are often given the option of including a specialised lining.

If you’re looking to add a blind to your bedroom, you will benefit from a blackout lining to block out external light, giving you the best night’s sleep.

Additionally, if you love nothing more than a good movie, a blackout lining is also a wise choice for your living room to help you enjoy the big screen in the comfort of your own home.

If you just hate the cold, or would like to make your home eco-friendlier, you could consider a thermal lining. This will help keep the heat in during the winter and keep the hot air out during the warmer months making you and the environment happier.

The trick is to evaluate how you spend time in the room you’re looking to enhance and act accordingly. If you’re stuck, don’t hesitate to contact our team who can help you make your choice.
