With this blind you can choose the colour of the chain you would like. The metallic options give the blind an expensive look, however other options may be available.
You can decide whether you would like to have the control mechanism on the left or the right side of the blind. If it is easier for you to reach one side of the blind rather than the other, then this makes adjusting the blind more convenient.
You can decide whether you would like to have the control mechanism on the left or the right side of the blind. If it is easier for you to reach one side of the blind rather than the other, then this makes adjusting the blind more convenient. On some roman blinds you can also choose between cordlock or sidewinder control type.
Cordlock has a nylon cord that you draw to raise and then you can lock it into place when it is in the required position. This cord can then be released to lower. A child safety cleat is supplied to neatly wind spare cord out of the way when it is revealed.
Sidewinder is a continuous chain mechanism with a low gearing, so it is more suitable for raising and lowering heavy or wide blinds. It is generally regarded as a better, premium headrail type. We would recommend this choice if your blind is over 120cm wide or if the blind is going to be regularly raised and lowered.
This option determines the way in which the fabric rolls. Standard roll means that the fabric sits behind the roller tube. Alternatively, reverse roll sits in front of the roller tube. This option is better when your window has handles that might prevent the roller blind from closing.
Face fixing brackets are secured behind the blind headrail. Top fix brackets on the other hand are secured above the blind headrail.
The Standard headrail allows cords to run down the back of the blind all coming across to one side and threaded through a cord lock system.
The Deluxe sidewinder has cords running behind the blind like the standard, however they wind up into cartridges inside the track. Plus the deluxe has a higher ratio gear so it is easier to open and close the blind, especially important for wider blinds.
With our day and night blinds you can choose from our classic headrail or the EVO headrail system.
You can choose whether the blind will lift open from the left or right side. Your choice will depend on whether you want easy of access to the blind cord, or if you want to make it less accessible to a child.
Different lining options are available for different circumstances. In particular you could go for a thicker blackout material to darken a childs bedroom, or to keep in heat. Alternatively lighter and thinner linings are available, which will keep a room lighter and cooler.
Here you can choose whether the blind slats will open to the left, to the right, split stack or centre stack. When the the blind is open the blind will stack as follows depending on option selected:
Usually you would choose an option to match your window or door frame. For instance if you install this blind in front of a sliding door you would ensure it opens the same way as the door.
With a made to measure wood venetian blind - the slats will be trimmed to your custom measurements. This will expose the base wood colour on both sides of the blind. When your blind is fitted within a window recess, the outer edges of the slats are not visible and therefore this does not affect the finished look.
Should you be fitting this blind outside of the window recess - you may wish to pick the ‘Stain Wood Ends’ option for a small additional cost. This will ensure that the exposed ends of the slats are stained the same colour as the rest of the slats.
With tape colour there are a number of colour options to choose from. You could match your tape colour to the slat colour so they compliment each other, or alternatively go for a nice contrast.
You can choose the side of the head-rail that your blinds tilt and raise controls are situated. These are fully configurable, with the option to have tilt and raise on the same or opposite sides.
You can choose whether the blind tilting wand will be positioned on the left or right side. Your choice will depend on whether you want easy of access to the tilt wand, or if you want to make it less accessible to a child.
As this is a made to measure product, it is made to your exact measurements. This means that you are responsible for ensuring the blind is of the right size for your window. For an additional charge we will provide measurement insurance against incorrect measurements. For full details please see our terms and conditions.

When this product is positioned in front of a window it will blackout all sunlight. This makes it ideal for any room that is exposed to a lot of direct sunlight or ambient light (such as streetlights).
Please Note: A fully blackout effect can only be achieved when fitted outside of a window recess (as to fully obscure the window). When fitted within a recess, light may seep through any gaps that have not been fully covered.
We supply a free child safety device (control tie down clip) with all of our vertical blinds so that when you fit your blind, along with the child safety device (correctly and properly fitted) it will minimise the risk or injury to children. Plus all vertical blinds are manufactured with a control length that complies with child safety regulations, and as standard blinds come with an easy breakaway chain.
The Avalon Blackout blind features a heavy boucle style textured weave to its surface and can be ordered in a selection of shades. This material has a dim out quality helping to reduce light from entering your room.

When using vertical blinds, you should look at the window and see what obstacles you have in your window. If you have handles that stick out you should bear in mind that you will have to move the blind out from the window to ensure that it does not catch against these.
If you have opening widows, think about having the vertical blind to draw back to the side that does not open. This will mean when you have your windows open your blinds will not blow about in a breeze. This is particularly useful for patio doors, where you can damage the blind easily when the doors are open.
It is quite normal for blackout fabrics to be used on vertical blinds but due to the nature of the blind, light may still pass through the gaps in the slats. If it is a proper blackout window treatment you need then we would suggest a roller blind instead.
Vertical blinds should be maintained at regular intervals with careful cleaning using an upholstery brush attachment of a hoover. Many modern fabrics are sponge or wipe clean and some can be washed but we recommend that you follow the manufacturer’s cleaning instructions carefully or have them professionally cleaned.
