FAQs - Frequently Asked Questions

How accurate are the colour swatches?

Whilst every effort is made to ensure blinds match swatches, dye batches from our manufacturers may vary. We cannot guarantee an exact match even on our samples unless paint finished, as wood is a natural material and does vary slightly in grain and shade although we are very accurate with our stains.

Is there a delivery charge?

Delivery is FREE within mainland UK (Please note that some postcodes in Scotland are not included and the relevant charge will be displayed in your shopping Cart) on all orders over the value of £149 for all standard deliveries. We can make deliveries to all other destinations but the relevant charges will apply, these will be added to your basket before final payment. Saturday delivery or time slots are available at additional cost.

How soon can I expect my delivery after I place my order?

Shortly after you place your order you will receive a confirmation email and although delivery within our manufacturing times cannot be 100% guaranteed, we will do our utmost to ensure goods are delivered within this period or soon afterwards, Most orders are completed within 5-10 working days from receipt of order, wooden and perfect fit wooden venetian blinds may take up to 15 working days.
