Roller Blinds installed Muswell Hill North London
Roller Blinds

Roller Blinds are a window treatment familiar to all of us, simple but effective. We have a wide variety of fabrics available to us, from voile roller blinds through to "Blackout" roller blinds - indeed most curtain fabrics can be laminated to make roller blinds. We use a robust mechanism with heavy duty being available if required and our roller blinds can be sidewinder operated, centre sprung or motorised if you prefer.

Many blinds are available as "blackout" where the fabric does not allow light to pass through - however light will still come in round the edges so the overall effect will be room darkening and not the exclusion of all light.    For the maximum darkness we can achieve it is possible to have blackout blinds with side channels together with "blackout" curtains and a hard pelmet

 

 

 

Duette blinds installed Hendon North London

Duette or Pleated Blinds

Both Pleated Blinds and Duette Blinds use a similar method of construction similar to a concertina or accordian folding and unfolding into a series of pleats. The major difference between Duette Blinds and Pleated Blinds is that Pleated Blinds are composed of a single layer with strings running through, while Duette Blinds as the name implies offer a double layer with the strings out of sight, and no unsightly holes. The cellular construction of the duette fabric traps a layer of air which helps to provide insulation

Bottom up blinds installed Crouch End North London
Bottom Up blinds
&
Top-Down / Bottom-Up blinds

Bottom Up blinds are often a variation on roller blinds. Sprung loaded these roller blinds are held in place by cup hooks. It is also possible to use Duette blinds as bottom-ups. Top-Down / Bottom-Up blinds are even more flexible and can be positioned to cover any part of the window as required. Trappng a layer of air means that duette blinds have excellent insulation properties .

Blackout blinds - there is no way of getting 100% blackout with a blind. Above is a photgraph of what can be achieved in broad daylight. We have installed a blackout blind and side channels. With dark side channels you do get less reflected light

velux blind in Changing Curtains Highgate
Velux Blinds

Genuine velux blinds fit velux windows perfectly. We do not sell cheaper copies, because in our opinion they are not as good. As well as the regular brochures we also have a Velux fabric sample book so you can see the actual colour and texture. Available manual or motorised.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical Blinds are frequently the blind of choice for patio doors since they offer similar variations to the doors themselves in stacking to the left or right (they can also be split stack like a pair of curtains), with their facility for rotating the louvres Vertical Blinds offer both privacy and shade and come in a wide variety of fabrics including "blackout" in many colours

Come into the shop and look at all the possibilities, if you bring measurements with you of the size of your blinds we can give an estimate straight away.
If you are fitting your blinds we can make them to your measurements, if we are fitting your blinds we will doublecheck sizes before we start.

Just because a product looks similar does not mean the same quality of components has been used. Come into the shop, try out the samples, look at the options available, if we supply your blinds we will do our best to repair them if that ever becomes necessary
(we have recently supplied a replacement control mechanism for a large blackout roller blind which we supplied many years ago, that weight of blackout fabric over many years of constant use ; the mechanism finally gave out - no problem - replace the mechanism and the blind is operating "as good as new", as long as our suppliers are in business we will do our best to help our clients)

Changing Curtains employ two staff fitters and provide a full installation and repair service for blinds we have supplied.
If you live beyond our fitting area we can still make your blinds - Email us for details
