    Selecting Recess/Fabric/Blind Size

    Please read the guide below and let us know which type of measurement you are providing:

    Recess Size

    Recess Size

    If you want to fit your blind within the window recess as shown above, please provide us with Recess Size measurements.

    To do this you will need to measure inside the window recess from wall to wall for the width and from ceiling to window sill for the drop.

    You should take the measurements three times to make sure you get the most accurate sizes - at the top, at the middle and at the bottom for the width and at the top, the middle and the right for the drop.

    The three sizes to give us are the smallest of the three measurements for both the width and the drop.

    Make sure you do not make any reductions from these sizes yourself. We'll make your blinds slightly smaller on the width than the sizes you give us to make sure that it fits into the space with enough room for it to be installed easily and so the brackets don't scrape the walls, while still covering as much of the window as possible. The adjustment size will differ depending on the type of blind you choose and whether you are adding a cassette to cover the roll - our team will be happy to confirm the reduction amount for you if you advise which blind you are ordering.

    Remember that the width of the fabric will always be slightly less than the total width of the blind to allow for the size of the mechanism and brackets - the difference is usually approximately 3.5cm.

    Fabric Size or Blind Size

    If you want to fit your blind outside of the window recess we recommend overlapping the window by at least 10cm on the width and 10cm on the drop.

    You can then specify whether you want us to use these measurements as the Fabric Size or the Blind Size.

    Fabric Size or Blind Size

    Fabric Size

    If you choose Fabric Size we will use your measurements as the size of the fabric part of the blind only. This means that the size of the brackets/mechanism/cassette will be in addition to the sizes you provide us - this is usually 3.5cm but our team will be happy to confirm the amount for you before ordering.

    Blind Size

    If you choose Blind Size we will use your measurements as the size of the total blind including the brackets and mechanism (and cassette if ordered). This means that the fabric part of the blind will be slightly smaller than the sizes you provide. The amount of difference varies depending on the type of blind ordered - it is usually 3.5cm but our team will be happy to confirm the amount for you before ordering.

    Chain Colour Options

    We offer a premium nickel chain as standard, but you can also choose from either a white or black plastic chain if this better suits your decor scheme.

    All options offer smooth, precise control of your new roller blind.

    Nickel Chain

    Nickel Chain

    White Plastic Chain

    White Plastic Chain

    Black Plastic Chain

    Black Plastic Chain

     

     

    The control chain/cord for your blind can be on either the left or right side.

    When deciding, consider whether you have any furniture that will make reaching the controls harder on a certain side; or if you are having multiple blinds in the same room whether you want them all on the same side or on opposite sides.

    Roller System Options

    Standard Roller System

    Standard Roller System

    Our standard roller system allows the fabric roll, brackets and blind mechanism to be seen. They can be either top fixed or face fixed, but not side fixed. This is the most common system used and is the one you've probably seen around the most.

    To give our system a premium finish we supply matching white plastic bracket covers with our standard roller system at no additional cost. Just slip them over the metal bracket once its screwed into place for a neat, attractive finish.

    Luxury Roller System

    Luxury Roller System

    If you choose our luxury roller system we will supply you with a smart 7cm tall aluminium cassette that hides the roll of fabric, the brackets and the blind mechanism. It also removes the gap you would usually see between the ceiling and the fabric roll giving a neater and more high end, contemporary finish.

    The cassette can be either top fixed or face fixed dependning where you are fitting your blind. Top fix is used when fitting your brackets at the top to the 'ceiling' area inside a recess; while face fixed is used when brackets are attached vertically on the wall for the cassette to clip into such as when you are fitting above a window outside of the recess.

    For most fabrics the cassette will have a piece of the same fabric as the blind itself fitted into the cassette as seen in the image above, however, if you are purchasing a sunscreen or sheer blind this fabric cannot be used as an insert and so the cassette will be supplied plain as shown below:

    Luxury Roller System with No Insert

    Bottom Finish Options

    Please read the guide below and select which bottom finish option you would like from the drop down menu:

    Plain Bottom Finish

    Plain Bottom Finish

    Our plain bottom finish features a sturdy folded and sewn bottom pocket with a weighted insert to ensure the blind hangs nicely.


    Aluminium Bottom Bars

    Alternatively you can choose to have the bottom of your blind finished with an aluminium bottom bar in a range of finishes.

    White Curved Bottom Bar

    White Curved Bottom Bar

    Black Curved Bottom Bar

    Black Curved Bottom Bar

    Anthracite Grey Curved Bottom Bar

    Anthracite Grey Curved Bottom Bar

    Silver Curved Bottom Bar

    Silver Curved Bottom Bar

    Please Note - In July 2023 our bottom bar options changed from a round aluminium bar to the rectangular Gemini bottom bar with a sleek curved front and stylish angled end caps.
    If you ordered previously and want to check if your new product's bottom bars will match those on your previous order, please contact our team who will be able to confirm.

    We understand that a big part of turning your house into a home is how you personalise it and we want to help you do this in any way we can. If you have fallen in love with a specific fabric we are more than happy to turn this into a bespoke made to measure roller blind.


    To do this we heat bond a 100% cotton backing to your fabric to add the rigidity required for a roller blind before overlocking the edges and completing the blind making process by hand.


    We bond your fabric to a White Blackout lining to stiffen it and make it suitable for a roller blind.


    What types of fabric can be used?


    The bonding operation can be completed on most fabric types although we recommend avoiding checks, stripes or tartans, raw silks or materials with a very open weave as this process can sometimes warp the design.


    To ensure that your fabric is suitable you can send a small piece of your chosen material to us to test bond before investing in the full amount of fabric for your blind.


    Can you source the fabric for me?


    Unfortunately not - we believe a lot of the fun of a custom order is in the choosing of the fabric so you can feel its quality and assess any possible flaws or imperfections before you send the material to us to be made into a blind.


    Are there any size restrictions?


    The size of blind that can be made is determined by the width of the fabric you want to use. We currently do not offer to join customer’s own fabric so can make a blind up to 5cm shorter than the width of the fabric you want us to use.


    Some fabrics e.g. a plain fabric will be suitable to turn on their side. This will allow you to have a wider blind with a limited drop.


    We require 40cm of fabric on the drop to make the blind up and ensure that the top roll is covered when the blind is fully lowered. This also accounts for the fact that most natural fabrics will shrink slightly during the laminating process.


    Example:

    • Fabric is 137cm Wide.

    • Turning the fabric on its side to make a blind 240cm wide would have a maximum drop of 97cm.

    Please Note This blind is suitable for top fixing or face fixing only, it cannot be side fixed.

    If you are ever not sure or would like some advise on how to work out what is possible please feel free to contact our customer service team on:


    • 0115 9699933

    • Or email us on info@orderblinds.co.uk

    Please Note This blind is suitable for top fixing or face fixing only, it cannot be side fixed.

    How much fabric will I need?


    Once we know what fabric you want to use and what size blinds you would like us to make we will always confirm how much fabric is required; but as a rule of thumb to get an idea the following guide can be used:

    • If the blind is being made from a single width of fabric = The drop of the window + 40cm

    • If the blinds are being made from a patterned fabric you would also need to add a pattern repeat of fabric per drop of material for us to pattern match your blinds.

    Please Note This blind is suitable for top fixing or face fixing only, it cannot be side fixed.

    Roll Direction


    As standard we will reverse roll a bespoke roller blind. If you would prefer the blind to be standard rolled please let us know when placing your order.


    Standard roll is where the fabric will roll off the back of the roller tube taking the blind close to the windows itself. As a result you will see the white or cream backing at the top of the roll.


    Reverse roll is where the fabric rolls of the front of the roll, into the room so that you see your fabric rather than the backing at the top of the blind.


    Sending us the fabric


    Once you have placed your order you will need to send the fabric to us. We strongly recommend inspecting the fabric for flaws and that any patterns are printed correctly before sending us the fabric as this can affect the overall finish of the blind.


    We will always inspect the fabric again for pattern straightness and highlight issues that we spot but we cannot be held responsible if the blind doesn’t look great if this is a result of us being sent faulty fabric.


    We also strongly recommend send us the fabric on a roll, rather than folded. Depending on the fabric, once a material has been folded, the crease lines can remain even after ironing. On a roller blind these will be very pronounced and we cannot be held responsible for these lines if the fabric has been sent to us folded.


    Once your order has been placed please send your fabric, with a copy of your order included to:

    I hadn't ordered any blinds online before so was unsure what the quality would be like, especially given the keen pricing, so I looked on this as a bit of an experiment. I am absolutely over the moon with the result. Beautiful blind very professionally made. Contact with the company was always helpful, timely and friendly. Blind was made very quickly, and they kindly arranged a delayed delivery as I was away. First class all round. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

    I cannot recommend this company highly enough. Every agent I spoke or emailed with was incredibly helpful. Their knowledge of their products and expertise was very reassuring. I am thrilled with the blind I ordered and will definitely be ordering from then again.

    Ordered two roller blinds each using a different fabric. Order was turned around quickly and efficiently with plenty of helpful communication. Order Blind prices were reasonable (although be careful using a roll to post fabric, as the cost jumps significantly if too long). We're delighted with the result - just what we'd envisaged. Thank you!

    This is a very efficient company who dealt with my order very quickly. The blind was very professionally made and finished. If I have any criticism, I would say that the gap each side was fractionally too much and the morning sun leaches in. Of course this won’t be a problem once the days get shorter. All in all a good service.

    Excellent customer service over the phone and the blind is perfect. The pattern has been beautifully centered and the blind looks great on the window. We'll definitely use this company again. Thank you all!
