Not all windows are the same – and that’s why so many of our customers come to us. They need something that’s going to fit perfectly.
As the experts in made to measure blinds, we can create window blind solutions to suit most windows, no matter what their shape, size or functioning.
Here are some of the most popular questions we get asked by customers who have specific needs in mind.
Q. Can you create blinds that aren’t rectangular in shape?
Shutters can also be made to fit curved and angled windows and doors.
Q. I have bi-fold doors – can I still have blinds?
A. Yes, there are blinds that are specially designed for bi-fold doors.
Our Intu® Micro Pleated blinds tend to be the most popular type and they are made to the exact size of the glass recess. Intu® Micro is a compact, pleated system that works seamlessly within the limited space afforded by bi-folding doors, while retaining the superb quality of the Intu® system. Bespoke 16mm pleated and 18mm cellular fabrics fit within the reveals of bi-fold doors, so this system can equally be used on other PVC, wooden or aluminium doors and windows.
They are mainly pre-tensioned so just pull up and down (no cords) and they don’t flap in the breeze.
They are designed to allow the doors to bi-fold back with no damage caused to the door or the blind letting you keep full functionality of the doors.

Q. What’s the biggest size of blind available?
A. The majority of our products go up to sizes that adequately cover larger than average windows, generally blinds can be made up to 4m x 7m.
We also have the Capital Roller Collection that is specifically for large windows. These fabrics can be used to manufacture blinds with widths up to 4000mm and drops up to 7000mm to cater for the trend for ‘glass expanses’ in homes.
Vertical blinds are also very popular for rooms with lots of large windows – they look great in bright colours too! Or our newest product, the Allusion range, also suits large windows.
Q. My window tilts inwards. Do I need specific blinds?
A. Intu®blinds are the best solution for tilt and turn windows. Intu blinds fit into the frame of the window so the blind sits flush against the glass. This ensures the fabric travels with the window when it’s in a tilted position and doesn’t hang down.
Q. I have a lantern roof. Can I put blinds in it?
A. Our Elegance Skylight system is especially made for large glazed architectural features. This unique blind can cover areas up to 24m² (much bigger than other types of blinds). It’s available in a choice of sheer, translucent and blackout fabrics and operating the blinds can be motorised.
Q. I can’t reach my window to open and close the blinds, can they be operated remotely?
A. Blinds can be automated with the a number of motorised options we offer, including the Powershade Hub a system that lets you control your blinds from your smart phone, tablet or remote control.
Motorised blinds are ideal for any difficult to reach windows or rooms with lots of blinds, particularly in conservatories.
Q: Can I get blinds for a glass or conservatory roof?
A: Yes, roof blinds can be tailored to any shape.
Again, motorising blinds makes dealing with blinds in high places or multiple blinds, easy and convenient.
