I need a venetian blind & roller blind and am thinking it might be cheaper to order online. Can anyone recommend an online company please? Done a search but there are so many and would prefer to go on recommendation.
Apparently they are (lots have friends have done it), but we're really not good at that sort of thing so we paid our local blind shop to fit them. It was really cheap - still cheaper than buying from them directly.
Yes, used Roman Blinds Direct - free samples (definitely needed!) and excellent choice, price and quality. Really good measuring guide too, I had a bay window and was terrified of getting it wrong. Paid someone recommended by the local blinds shop to fit them, still an absolute bargain.
Used Blinds2Go loads of times and always good. If you ever order roman blinds I'd recommend upgrading to a chain control, though. Tuiss is their sister site and worth a look, too. I've been able to mix and match across sites as their customer services are so helpful. They do made to measure so it ends up much simpler than cutting down off-the-shelf rollers.
I have used Tuiss too, several times. I think they are great. Have only ever bought venetian blinds from them as I make my own roman blinds.
I do remember having to use a bit of wood dye on the ends of the walnut blinds I bought - where they had been cut to size I suppose and the cut edges were lighter than the slats, but I could live with that because they were so reasonably priced.
