1. Plain or Patterns?

    Plain or Patterned Blinds

    Usually, the choice between patterned or plain window blinds comes down to personal preference and the existing decor of the room you are putting the window blind into. Whilst most people's go-to is a plain, neutral design, it can be a good idea to consider all choices and see them for yourself before making your mind up, which is why we always recommend potential customers to come down to our showroom to see many of our blind styles in person to really get a feel for the textures, colours and aesthetics of each fabric. Our locations are below:

    Blaydon: Chainbridge Industrial Estate, 4-5 Tundry Way, Blaydon-on-Tyne NE21 5SJ

    Forest Hall: 20 Station Rd N, Forest Hall, Newcastle upon Tyne NE12 9AD

  2. Come Rain (or Shine) Window Coverings

    Living Room Venetian Blinds

    On average, the North East of England receives around 700 to 900 millimetres (27 to 35 inches) of rainfall per year. This makes it one of the wetter regions in the United Kingdom, but it is not as rainy as some areas in the western parts of the country, such as Wales or the Lake District.

    Indoor blinds can provide several benefits during rainy weather, especially for homes or buildings with windows. Here's how indoor blinds can help in the rain:

    1. Rainwater protection: Indoor blinds act as a barrier between the rain and the interior of your home. When properly closed, blinds prevent rainwater from splashing onto windows and seeping inside, helping to keep your living spaces dry and free from water damage.
    2. Moisture control:

  3. Flame Retardant Blinds For Commercial Properties

    Fire Retardant Blinds

    Fire retardant blinds are specifically engineered to prevent the rapid spread of fire in the event of an incident. In settings where safety is of utmost importance, such as commercial establishments, the presence of flame retardant blinds becomes crucial and in most cases in the UK, required by law.  This is because of their effectiveness in reducing the potential for injuries or loss of life. Here are some reasons why fire retardant blinds are a MUST:


    1. Safety: The primary purpose of fire retardant blinds is to enhance fire safety. In the event of a fire incident, these specialised window treatments are designed to resist the spread of fire, helping to contain it within a limited area.
