  1. Benefits of Fitted Blinds, Plus How To Measure and Install

    Fitted blinds in a beautiful, modern kitchen

    Window treatments are among the most important — and often overlooked — design features in a home. Not only do they add a touch of colour and style to a room, but they're also incredibly useful when you want to protect your family’s privacy. Window dressings enable you to control the amount of light and heat that enters your home, helping you save money on energy bills and improve comfort throughout your humble abode.

    Not all blinds are created equal. One-size-fits-all curtains and blinds that can be found at local shops don’t provide the same benefits as custom-fitted blinds. Also known as made-to-measure blinds, this blind style is custom made to fit the exact dimensions of your windows. 

    The seamless fit offers aesthetic benefits but also enables you to get the most out of your window coverings. Learn more about fitted blinds including benefits, how to install them and where to get your hands on quality products.
