There’s a certain limit to what many of us achieve when it comes to DIY projects, but blinds are one of those things that most home owners can do in a few hours or less. This of course doesn’t take into account the hours poring over the options and viewing your samples in the window before purchasing but once you begin the task you should find it fairly easy.

Here we explain the process of ordering your blinds online from start to finish.

Your first task is to determine the windows where you’ll be fitting blinds and take accurate measurements. Learn how to measure your windows for blinds here.

You can then have a look at which blinds you like best and which will suit the needs of each room. A good rule of thumb is that timber wood blinds won’t hold up in wet areas like the kitchen or bathroom. But, if you like the look and feel of a timber wood Venetian blind you can always opt for an Ecowood (faux wood) blind instead.

Roman and roller blinds tend to work well in almost any space, and you can now make all blinds safe for children’s room with the help of a cleat hook to keep the cord out of reach.

Once you’ve narrowed down your list of blinds you can order samples. We recommend viewing samples of roman and roman blinds in your windows at different times of day so you can really get a feel for how they look with the light filtering through. Venetian blind samples can be held against your existing furnishings and floor to view the contrast.
