There are many reasons to consider custom-made blinds for your home

Getting Started

There are so many styles of blinds on the market that finding the right style for your home can be a daunting task. Take the time to consider the following:

Level of privacy
If it’s for your bedroom, you should consider blocking out the light for a restful sleep.If it’s for the kitchen, a bright sheer fabric that lets the sun in is a lovely option.

Personal Style
Reflect on your style to determine whether your custom-made blinds should be more traditional and formal or casual and comfortable. Your decorating style will help you narrow down the choices of materials and colours. Bright colours can be attractive while subtle neutrals are considered classy. Either way, it’s best to choose a style that you can live with for a long time.

Determine your budget. The price range for custom blinds and shades can vary a great deal.Consider spending a little more on living room or bedroom windows and scaling down on guest room or bathroom windows.

You can start by doing some research with our online catalog to see what styles you like. Visiting the nearest Fabricville store can also help narrow down the choices. Custom blinds do not necessarily have to be expensive, and with the proper guidance from our specialists, you can attain the look you are looking for within your budget.

Custom Blinds

Blinds can be adjusted by tilting the slats to let the sun in or closed to give you complete shade. They are available in a variety of materials such as wood, aluminum, or faux wood (plastic). The advantage of choosing blinds is that you can easily adjust the amount of light you let in the room without having to pull the blinds up.

Custom Shades

Shades offer more options as far as textures, patterns, and fabrics. They are available in a variety of styles such as roman shades, honeycombs, blackout, solar, and woven. 

Many new models of custom blinds or shades are now designed with security features such as cordless or continuous loops.

Taking proper measurements for blinds or shades

Knowing how to take your measurements correctly is key to ensuring that your custom-made blinds fit perfectly. If your blinds are inside-mount (within the window frame), you must measure inside the window frame. Also ensure that you have the required depth to fit your blinds. If your blinds are outside-mount, your measurements should include the frame. Regardless of whether they are inside-mount or outside-mount, you should always measure at three different places (top, middle and bottom) in case there are variations in your window construction.
