What is the difference between a recess and exact measurement?
A recess measurement is the distance between the top and bottom of the window opening, and from side to side. Be sure to measure in several different places and take the smallest measurement. If you provide a recess measurement we will automatically deduct a required amount for each blind to ensure a perfect fit.
An exact measurement is the size you would like the blind to be made. We will not make any allowances. As when taking a recess size, please ensure several measurements are recorded taking in to account tiles and dado rails.

The Vertical Blind I have fitted does not tilt properly, what should I do?
This is a common fault and can be quickly rectified. Simply close the blind fully and tilt the louvers so you can not see out of the window. Continue to pull the tilt chain to realign the carriers. You may hear a slight clicking noise when this realignment is performed, this is completely normal.
I have fitted my Vertical Blind but the louvres are stuck in the closed position and will not tilt, what should I do?
This problem can be quickly rectified by removing all louvres from the headrail and then tilting the hangers within the headrail to 90º to the window or wall using the control chain at the end of the blind. Rehang the louvres in the open position, the blind will now open and close as required.
Our sales office is open 9am - 5pm, Monday to Friday.

I have installed my Vertical Blind but the blind will not tilt - what should I do?
Vertical Blinds may not tilt if the louvres have been hung in the incorrect position. This can be easily rectified by following the brief instructions below;
1. Remove all louvres from the headrail.
2. Tilt hangers within the headrail to 90º of the window using control chain at the end of the blind.
3. Re-hang louvres with fabric edge on.
Do you sell Blackout Blinds?
Blackout Blinds are available in a variety of styles including Roller Blinds, Vertical Blinds, Pleated Blinds and Roman Blinds (blackout lining).
The sample I requested is a slightly different shade to my complete blind
Due to the nature of fabric dyes and natural materials an exact match is not always possible. We do however endeavour to guarantee multiple blinds of the same style and colour are within the same batch. Wooden Blinds alike due to their natural characteristics can vary in shades.
