How to Choose Made to Measure Blinds that Suits your Style

You may have put a lot of heart and soul into choosing the right furniture and the right carpets and other flooring for your home, but don’t forget about the windows. The blinds or curtains need to blend in, and pull the room together, without being overpowering.

Choosing the right made to measure blinds that will suit your style and the room is easy with Eclectics Blinds. We believe that having the perfect blind is important to you and we want to help you find it. In fact, we make it easy.

Choose Your Type
Decide what type of blind will work for your window and the room setting.  Decide whether you need to achieve a certain amount of functionality (privacy, light filtering, heat reduction, blackout etc) or whether you are just looking to dress the window with a beautiful made to measure blind.  There are several types of blind available through the Eclectics collection: Roller blinds,Bottom -Up blinds or Half and Half blinds, Kyoto style sliding panel blind, Wooden Venetian blinds, Vertical blinds and the more luxurious Roman blinds. All of the blinds give your home a clean and uncluttered feeling. They are all eye-catching, but they are only as much of a focal point as the fabric you choose.

Choose Your Fabric
The Eclectics range of fabrics is broken down into various collections; plain and simple, plain but not simple, designer, the form collection, distant shores (for those with exotic tastes) and the function collection which includes our sunscreen and blackout fabrics.

Each range has a choice of fabrics. Our fabrics come in a variety of colours and patterns, from muted tones to beautiful and interesting patterns. You can choose a simple jute weave pattern, or go wild and choose a fabric printed with a black and white photograph of London at night, or one of a dandelion in seed shot against the bluest sky; something to appeal to all ages and tastes.

Build Your Blind

The next step is to measure for your blind and decide on its control features. Measure the height and width of the window, and decide if you want the blind to sit within the window frame (inside recess) or if you want it to overlap and cover the entire window, frame (outside recess). Mechanisms, such as chains and pulls, are the next choice. If you are going for the ultimate in luxury you may want to opt for an electric method of opening and closing the blind.  Finally, choose the bottom finishing of the blind. Will it have standard trim, a contrast, or a bottom bar? The choice is yours, and there are so many.
