Pricing Comparison

For us to make claims about our prices, we need to substantiate these. This is what this page is for. To show you our findings.

Make My Blinds Price Comparison - August 2018

Here at Make My Blinds, we make some bold claims – like all of our blinds come with a 4-year guarantee, that they are made to measure and that we’re genuinely helpful on the phone (that one you’ll need to call us to test!). But with certain things, like our claim of ‘save up to 70% off high street prices’ we need to have a little bit more documentation available to comply with regulating bodies, and also to prove in writing to anyone reading/complaining, that we are cheaper. We will be continuously updating this page as we compare against other retailers across the country, including major retailers like John Lewis, Dunelm and B&Q. But also against high street independents across the coutry to give a broad overview of retailers in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. 

 

Our Claim – Save up to 70% off high street prices.

So for us to claim that our prices are ‘up to 70% cheaper than on the high street’, we actually need to prove that, which seems fair to us. So, what do we mean by ‘High-Street’, well we are comparing our made to measure blinds against retailers who also sell made to measure blinds, but are found on the high street. This is not their online price, but the price found in a physical retail store. We are not comparing pre-built blinds, as that is not what we sell.

 Each month we price match like for like products available from high street retailers.

 This month we are comparing a few of our blinds, with the same from a high street retailer. This month we are comparing against John Lewis.

Wooden Blind Comparison - John Lewis - National Retailer 

Luxaflex White Venetian – given, we don’t sell Luxaflex products. But let’s compare this product with our similar options.

We were quoted this price in store – Cribbs Causeway 5th July 2018.

Luxaflex – real wood white 50mm wooden venetian blind

25mm cotton tapes

Made to measure

120cm wide x 122cm drop

Controls: Tilt Left – Raise Right

£361.00

Make My Blinds, real wood, white wooden blind with tape, 50mm slat.

Real Wood Bliss White with Pearl Tapes - £109.99

https://www.makemyblinds.co.uk/real-wood-bliss-white-with-pearl-tape.html

Real Wood Lightbox White with Lilly Tapes - £109.99

https://www.makemyblinds.co.uk/real-wood-lightbox-white-with-lilly-tape.html

Here we have 2 of our products, (69.5% cheaper) but we won’t use this as our comparison as we don’t sell Luxaflex products. But if you wanted a very similar, unbranded product, then you could in theory save up to 69.5% on the price of the John Lewis blind.


The sizes chosen in this comparison are not super small, nor super large. We have tried to be fair in choosing standard sizes windows. For example, 60cm wide x 180cm long for the vertical blind is a single patio door. A 120x 120cm roller blind is a typical window.  As all of our blinds are made to measure and each window differs in size we have tried to be as fair as possible by not choosing strange sizes like 35cm x 35cm or 250cm wide x 40cm drop.
