Review: Make My Blinds

Sunday, July 14, 2019
Over there past year we've been upgrading and renovating our home, from both bathrooms and the kitchen to painting and reupholstering worn out furniture, we have also been updating our old decor most of which has been around for quite a number of years so I was very excited to work with Make My Blinds. You know when you're old because you get excited about new homeware...

*Make My Blinds - Kerry Pearl River Vertical Blackout Blinds (£51.29)
I was very kindly sent my choice of blind from the lovely people over at Make My Blinds which offers such an incredible range of blinds for any room, any style and any size. The style of blinds varies from roman blinds, vertical, blackout, wooden, aluminium and patterned to roller, Venetian, skylight blinds and many more. As there is so much choice, they also offer free samples of many of their blinds.
I chose the *Kerry Pearl River Vertical Blackout Blind which I wanted for the living room as the blind we have there already is about ten years old so it is time to replace it. I also wanted to change that blind as it doesn't fully match out current decor which we changed last year. The grey and silver tones in the new blind match perfectly with our decor and colour scheme which is based about greys and neutral tones.

I was a little worried that the colour would be a little too dark as colours online may differ very slightly to how it will look in your home; however, I didn't need to worry as the shade isn't too dark at all and the images online gave a very accurate depiction of the shade. I am impressed with the shade range for the blinds on offer as there's pretty much every shade you could want, including a variety of neutrals.
The main selling point for me about this blind in particular was the blackout aspect which is something we have with few of our other blinds and it is quite dramatic the difference they can make. The blackout feature is very effective and it is ideal for the very hot and sunny days we've been having recently in the UK as have when the blinds are closed they tend to make the room a little cooler. We're all very impressed with the blackout feature as well as the colour and quality of the blind.

In terms of the fitting, we did it ourselves and it was fairly quick and easy with only a couple of hiccups along the way but I think that most people would be able to fit them without too much effort or time. It also came packaged well and while there was a problem with the blind initially, the problem was sorted out my Make My Blinds very quickly so I cannot recommend them enough!
