When you plan to redecorate your windows with functional and decorative blinds, the first thing which pops up on your mind is “how to buy them?” You would have to decide whether you need to visit a dedicated blind store, your local home centre, or buy blinds online. Most people now prefer to make an online purchase because it is effortless and time-saving. Other than that, you get to choose from a larger collection of colours, materials and styles and the delivery is made within few days. However, it is common to be sceptical about buying blinds online because you cannot view the finished product directly. Also, the risk of getting duped is high when you buy anything online. Here are some tricks that can help you to make am efficient purchase,
- Take some time to choose the right colour, style and material
It is essential to be firm in your selection because most companies would not accept returns just because you are not satisfied with your choice. There are a huge collection of blinds online for you to choose from, literally hundreds. For starters, decide on the type of the colours, patterns and designs you are looking for to narrow down your search. Do not choose the style of the blinds without any proper research. Each style has its own pros and cons and it is necessary to find which one is suitable for your home.
- Make sure that the company offers free samples
You cannot be sure if the material you have ordered matches well your décor. Thus, reputed online retailers offer free samples to their customers so that they can assess the quality, colour and the feel of the material they are about to buy.
- Secure the best price
The price of blinds usually increases in this following order: vinyl, aluminium, faux wood and wood. Also, blinds are rated by their size. Thus expect to pay more for larger sized blinds. One of major benefits if you buy blinds online is their price. Online blinds are often cheaper when compared to their offline counterpart. The reason is that the online retailers don’t need to maintain high street stores in a premium location. Thus, they can afford to provide products at reduced rates without compromising the quality. Make sure to check for any offers and discounts when you make the purchase.
- Measure properly
One of the important things you need to decide before making measurement is whether you are going to have the blinds inside or outside the window frame. Inside mounted blinds give a clean look and can showcase the actual size of the window. On the other hand, blinds mounted outside can make the windows appear larger and are effective in hiding unattractive widows.
Instructions on how to make right measurements
Inside mounted blind (width)
- Measure the width of the inside edge of the window frame in the top, middle and bottom from left to right exactly.
- Round down the width measurement to the nearest 3.175mm.
- Note down the smallest of the 3 measurements.
Inside mounted blind (height)
- Measure the height of the inside edge of the window frame in the top, middle and bottom from top to bottom exactly.
- Round up the width measurement to the nearest 3.175mm.

Outside mounted blind (width)
- Measure the width of the window frame from left to right exactly or depending on your need.
- Take care to make the measurement wide enough to cover any intrusion of light.
- Keep in mind that no deductions or additions would be made by the company to the width ordered.

- Measure the height of the window frame from top to bottom exactly or depending on your need.
- Take care to make the measurement high enough to cover any intrusion of light.
- Keep in mind that no deductions or additions would be made by the company to the height ordered.
- Check the return policy
Once you have selected the blinds, you can place the order. However, go through the return policy of the company and check if they would accept the blinds back in case of any manufacturer damage.
No one likes to spend their hard-earned money and settle for unsatisfactory products, especially if there is a lot of money involved. Thus, execute everything carefully to get the most out of your investment.
