Terms & Conditions
The slightly less interesting, but still important stuff.

2. Finalising order sizes
All blinds are custom made to the customer’s exact specification entered into the website. Make My Blinds cannot be held liable for any inaccuracies or problems that may arise from inaccurate measuring on the customer’s side. MakeMyBlinds asks each customer to double check all measurements before placing their order. Our blinds are non-refundable after they have been made due to the custom nature of the product sold. Our customer services team will always repeat orders back to you; please be advised that we do not accept claims based on incorrect sizes or products being inputted by us; therefore in the case of orders placed over the telephone, we cannot accept such claims. After placing the order please check the order details on the email confirmation, alterations to your order can be made within 24 hours of your order being placed. If you do not recieve the email confirmation, please check your junk or spam folder, and if it's not arrived please contact us to check the email address and have another sent over within 24hours of your order being placed. If there is an issue with your order sizes and you haven't received the confirmation and haven't let us know you haven't recieved it, we cannot be liable. Refunds and cancellations are possible before your order has been started. Please also check the colour and fabric you have chosen before ordering. Make My Blinds cannot be held responsible for your mistake in fabric choice or colour. If you are unsure about anything please either order one of our free samples or call us before finalising your order. Once your order has been manufactured we are unable to exchange for a different product due to the made to measure nature of the product.
3. Product Tolerance
Whilst all our blinds are made to measure, due to the custom nature of these products we have a +/- 3mm tolerance on all exact size, fabric width and recess size orders. Whilst our highly skilled professionals are as accurate as possible, this 3mm tolerance is due to the machinery and blades used to cut fabrics and wooden slats to size. Where possible we will always make the blind slightly smaller than ordered, however, this can not always be guaranteed. If the blind is within the correct size and tolerance we are unable to replace the blind or accept a return on this item. Real Wooden Blinds are made to measure and due to the way they are cut to size, chips on the end of the slats can occur. This is inherent with cutting wood and visible chips under 1mm are within our product tolerance. However, Make My Blinds will look at each case on a case by case basis to resolve any issues with your order.
4. Prices & Delivery purchase
