The windows that I need blackout blinds for are 196x144 and 98x144, the nearest sizes available are 200 wide and 100 wide. Does anyone know if these blinds can be cut to size?

There's a little set of instructions that comes with them - I'd recommend leaving them a bit wide as we cut ours quite neatly and they let the light in at the sides now!

Brilliant, thanks for the tip!

Yes they can, you use a pair of scissors for the fabric and a hack saw to cut through the tube. You can also do what I did and get the supplier to do it for you. I got mine here
