You asked, we answered


How to fix a vertical blinds cord?

All of our blinds come with a child safety fixture as standard, and are designed and manufactured to the very latest safety standards. We’ve made the instructions super simple, and if there’s ever anything we can help with, just get in touch.


How do I clean vertical blinds?

Cleaning is simple, and only requires a handheld vacuum cleaner, preferably with a nozzle attachment. Run the vacuum up and down the fabric whilst gently holding it under tension. That’s all there is to it.


Do vertical blinds overlap when closed?

They absolutely do! Our vertical blinds are designed to block out all those stray rays of light between the strips of fabric, and we overlap them just the right amount. That way you get a look you love, and a room with the perfect light level.
