Transform Your Windows From Drab To Divine With Custom Made Window Dressings From Make My Blinds

Following the completion of our extension Paul and I spent a great deal of time decorating, furnishing and adding the finishing touches to our beautiful new bedroom and en suite bathroom.

Having spent time living in numerous houses over the years I have slept in a range of bedrooms none of which have been comparable in terms of quality or size. Our new room is far bigger than any of our previous bedrooms and with the added en suite it feels as if we are living in luxury!

I’m not saying bigger is better but having the space to fit a king size bed, a dressing table, two sets of bedside drawers, a dresser and a large set of double wardrobes whilst still being able to stretch out feels great. Not only that but being able to nip to the loo in the middle of the night without having to go far, getting cold or waking the children is a dream come true.

Unfortunately we didn’t put a great deal of thought into the curtains and after having narrowly avoided the neighbours seeing in us next to nothing and several months of being woken early by the sun rising we decided enough was enough and began researching further window dressing options.

Make My Blinds

We were very kindly sent custom fitted Lima Faux Blinds (with coffee tapes/ ribbons) to review by ‘Make My Blinds‘. Make My Blinds create a range of  ‘made to measure’ wooden, vertical, aluminium, and venetian blinds.

There are literally hundreds of colours and styles of blinds to choose from, whether your after a simple roller blind or a made to measure wooden blinds ‘Make My Blinds’ have the perfect solution and with free samples, how-t0-guides, dedicated customer support and fast delivery throughout the UK on all of their blinds a room can very simply and quickly be transformed from drab to divine.


Unboxing & Fitting The Lima Faux Wood Blinds

The blinds arrived promptly and perfectly packaged. Having unboxed the blinds we found detailed instructions were provided which were easy to fathom and to follow.

My husband Paul very quickly established which tools he would require and set about the job with full confidence whilst I walked around with my camera to snap a few shots here and there.

Paul very quickly drilled the fittings into place and set about placing the blinds correctly into the window space. We then adjusted the cords to a safe length using the safety snappers (included). Having fitted the blinds correctly Paul then added the facia to cover the blind fittings and the job was done, it really was as simple as that!

Using The Blinds

Having cleaned up the dust (from the drilling) and put my ornaments and photo back into place upon the windowsill I stood back to admire our bedroom finally finished in its full glory. Not only do the blinds offer much-needed privacy but they also block out the light entirely when adjusted resulting in a full nights rest without any early wake ups due to the early sun rises with it being Spring.

The blinds look stunning and have seem to have transformed the room entirely. No longer does our room just resemble a bog-standard bedroom it now feels much like we are sleeping in a posh, hotel room far away from home. It really is Worlds apart from what we had only a few months ago, it’s certainly been worth the wait, the dust, the cost, the hard work and the effort required to achieve results.


Blinding Offers & Purchasing Information

Make My Blinds have some fantastic deals, offering savings of up to 50% in comparison to high street prices making blinds easily affordable.

These particular blinds (The Lima Faux Wood Blinds With Tapes) are custom-made for large windows (measuring 170cm in length and 120cm in width) which would usually cost £104.99. Make My Blinds window blinds vary in price according to material, size and individual specifications.

Final Thoughts

Since having fitted our blinds from ‘Make My Blinds’ we have had numerous members of our family and friends comment upon how beautiful our bedroom now is, each one of them commented upon the blinds and have enquired as to where and how they too could order such blinds.

The blinds look stunning, are really high quality and certainly complete the room. I would without a doubt recommend ‘Make My Blinds’ to anyone considering fitting blinds and will certainly be using them in the future once we’ve had new windows fitted to complete furnishing all other windows around the house.

    Ooo nice! We had blinds in our house when we moved in but 6 years on with two dogs and two kids means ours are either broken, tatty or completely gone. Time to get new ones and will definitely have a look at these. Thanks!

    They look great. I was always a curtain person before I moved into this house, now I find blinds fit much better and look nicer. I’m after some new ones for the landing so I may just take a peek.
