Wooden Blinds: These are beautiful blinds that are matched by no other in terms of aesthetics and feel. They add a warm and luxurious atmosphere that is perfect for any home.

Aluminium Blinds: These are generally far more affordable. They come in a range of colours and provide a clean, polished and modern look. These are perfect for home or the office!

Shutters: Shutters allow for ultimate privacy and control of light. Did you know that shutters can even act as burglar bars?!

Roller Blinds: Want something a bit more chic? Roller blinds are made from various materials allowing different filter grades for light in required rooms. Check out options for prints on these too!

Roman Blinds: With their clean, sophisticated lines, Roman blinds, or Roman shades as they are sometimes known, are one of the most stylish ways to dress up a window. Made from light to medium weight fabrics, they can be used as a standalone window treatment fitted outside the window or fitted inside the window recess and combined with curtains and top treatments for a layered look.

Installing Your DIY Blinds
Most times, installing your blinds is as easy as drilling the blinds bracket to the wall. For recess blinds, you need to be sure that the bracket is secured far enough away from the window so that the blinds don’t touch the window. The outer edge of the window frame is the best placement for this. 

Your facefix blinds bracket will need to be attached to the outside of your window frame. This is easier seeing as though you will have more space to work with. All blinds supplied will include mounting brackets, screw, plugs, safety cleat and installation instructions to make it that much easier.
