Where to buy local blinds


It is a great thing to purchase window blinds from a local company. It supports your local community and your business means much more to a smaller business than a large corporation.

But where is the best place to buy local window blinds and how do you choose the right company and blinds for your windows? That comes down to knowing what to look for.

Blinds by Harrietts review the different types of blinds and several local companies and for the types of blinds, this varies highly on your interior furnishing and windows.

For the best selection you should choose made to measure blinds, this gives you the largest selection without the hassle with cutting down blinds to fit your windows.

Now within the category of made to measure blinds there are many types or subcategories of blinds, including:

  • Roller blinds
  • Vertical blinds
  • Venetian blinds
  • Wooden blinds
  • Roman blinds
  • Pleated blinds
  • and many more

The best choice for your home mostly depends on your ideal style and on your windows. For example, Harrietts Manchester report that the most common type of blind in the City of Manchester is Roller blinds.

In Chester however, they report the most common type of blind is the Vertical blind.

This may be done to trends, styles of homes, or a number of other factors.
In my personal opinion, the best type of window furnishing (although technically not a window blind) is interior Shutters. They are a modern adaptation of the French external Shutters and simply look fantastic.
This all comes down to personal preference though, that is why my advice is to call out a local window blind company before making your decision.
A local window blind company will visit your home and measure your windows for you while you look through a large sample book of fabrics and colours. They'll make suggestions and help you make the right choice too.
There is really no better way of doing it and it's hardly any more expensive than purchasing online, where you don't get to see the finished product or even see a real life sample of the blinds.
Overall the choice comes down to you. My suggestion though, is to find a local blind company online and get a free in-home appointment, it'll give you a much better view of the market and what you're interested in.
