DIY SOS – The BIG Build

Absolute Blinds were honoured to take part in the show when it arrived on its doorstep in Welwyn Garden City! A local Mum of four with a life-threatening illness had her home transformed on the show by a plethora of local tradesmen and Absolute Blinds were asked to supply and fit all the blinds. For all who were involved, their experience was the same; each felt that it was a great project to be involved in and were very proud of what they provided.

All the blinds seen on the show, which will be aired on the BBC, have been provided by Absolute Blinds. If there are any of the blinds you have seen, which you would be interested in, please do get in touch via sales@absolute-blinds.co.uk for more details.

The Finishing Touch…

In any neutrally decorated room, it is a great touch to inject some colour using the blinds or furniture. This means as the trends evolve, you can update your interior without picking up a paintbrush! Using a patterned fabric here also creates the silhouette effect of the delicate flowers.

The Contemporary Blind of Choice

In a modern property, the Vision blind is the perfect choice. Just like any of our other blinds, Vision blinds can be accessorised for the perfect finish. In this case, the customer asked for a contrasting colour on the cassette, a striking contrast to the white louvres and furniture in the room.

Patio Perfect Fit

For patio doors with smaller widths, perfect fit blinds are a great way of keeping a clean finish. Simply move up and down as you please with a small handle at the bottom of each blind, allowing you to control the light in different areas of the room. The greatest thing about Perfect Fit blinds is the fact the frame of the blind slots into the window frame without a single nail!
