Our plain red blackout vertical blinds are stylish, modern and practical. The blackout effect ensures that no light shines through, making them a great choice for bedrooms or meeting rooms where you need privacy. These vertical blinds are suitable for use in a computer environment.
Red is a fiery, vibrant colour that will stand out regardless of where it is placed. It can be easily accessorised with other colours such as grey, black and white for a modern look or with gold, cream and beige for a traditional elegant look. Regardless of your décor style, red is the perfect choice!
The first thing that you have to do when measuring for your new blinds is to identify whether your window has a recess and determine whether you would like your blinds to fit inside or outside of this space.
If you would like your blind to fit within the recess measure the width of the recess in three different positions and make a note of the smallest figure. This will be the figure that you need to provide us with.
Please note that we will make a small deduction from the width you have entered (usually about 10mm). This is to make sure that your blind fits perfectly within the recess and that it can operate properly within that space.
You do not need to make any deductions yourself when measuring your recess! We will do that for you.
To determine the length or drop of your blinds simply measure from the top of your recess to the windowsill in three different positions and provide us with the narrowest point.
For vertical blinds we will also deduct 15mm from the drop. This is because for vertical blinds the fabric needs to be lifted from the sill/floor for them to hang beautifully. You do not need to make any deductions yourself when measuring your recess! We will do that for you.
On the outside of the window (ie exact blind size) simply measure where you would like the blind to sit and supply that measurement.
On the outside of the window (ie exact blind size) simply measure where you would like the blind to hang to and supply that measurement.
We recommend that your blinds overlap the recess of the window by at least 5cm (2”) on all four sides.
Already have a blind that fits perfectly? Simply measure its width and drop and provide those measurements.
Personalise these blinds to your home even more by choosing your preferred control position. This is a free of charge option.
Make sure that your chosen control position gives you access to operate your blinds easily. Consider the blind's proximity to furniture, doors, plants and other elements around your home.
Vertical blinds allow you to specify which side you want the louvres to stack when the blinds are fully open. This option is free of charge.
Depending on your window size and position with your home, you can choose between left stacking, right stacking or split stacking blinds. We recommend split stacking blinds for French doors or kitchen windows, as the effect created by this can contribute to the look of the room. Side stacking blinds are better suited for offices or bedroom windows.
