Blinds in Stockport

I met a friend of mine for dinner in Stockport today, we had not seen each other in such a long time. It was lovely to see her and have a good chinwag.

She was telling me about how she had recently won the lottery and had bought a new house in Stockport and was currently in the process of renovating it. Over dinner we started talking about DIY and interiors, and the following morning we ended up going shopping for interiors and window blinds in Stockport.

We visited loads of shops in the city centre and a few out of town retail parks for blinds in Stockport. I was amazed to find that there were so many different types of window blinds  available in Stockport. She did not have a clue about what type of blinds she wanted and did not take measurements of the windows that she wanted to have the blinds on. So we had to go back to hers and take all the measurements, which took all days as we were so slow at it.

When she went back to the shop one of the advisors told her that they could have arranged a no obligation quote for her and would of taken all the measurements for her by visiting her house at a time convenient for her. In the end she arranged someone to come out anyway as she did not trust her measurements as she said she thinks she may have made a boo-boo. The advisor was really professional and helpful.

Blinds in Preston

I moved to Preston last month to be closer to my parents as they are quite elderly. They are both in there 70s now, but are mobile and self-reliant. They would never ask for help as they are too stubborn. I bought a small flat near them as I could not afford to buy a house on my salary. I was quite lucky to find a job in Preston so that made things easier.

I still have loads of items in storage, which I am trying to sell as I don’t have the space in my flat in Preston. The new flat is really modern and does  not need much work doing to it, just my personal touch. I’ve started selling some items online on sites such as Gumtree and eBay. I’m hoping I can shift it all soon as the storage fees are not cheap.

The flat has really high windows, which are nice, but it’s a nightmare in the evening as the rooms never get dark and I can’t sleep if the room is not pitch black. I’ve looked online about getting some blackout blinds for the flat and was really impressed to find that they were so cheap. I don’t know why I thought window blinds would be so expensive. There are quite a few different window blind fitters in Preston and in Lancashire.

My parents have said they want blinds fitted in their home, but they want the posh wooden ones in their living room. I think they are called venetian blinds, most of the window blinds in Preston are pretty cheap so they will be pleased.

Blinds in Northamptonshire

Northamptonshire is a quaint and lovely place to live, I moved there about six months ago due to family reasons. I have been renovating the house on the weekends as I work Monday to Friday full-time in on office job.

The house has a lot of work to be done to it, but I love renovating so it’s not a problem. I’m currently looking at various window blinds in Northamptonshire. I told my husband I do not want curtains in any of the rooms only window blinds. I did not realise that there were so many different types of window blinds available – you really are spoilt for choice these days. I really like the wooden blinds, I think they would look fabulous in the kitchen. I’d like roman blinds in the bedrooms and vertical blinds in the reception and dining room.

In Northamptonshire there appears to be a lot of window blind retailers and manufacturers, which is a good thing for us as we do not have a car and can’t travel too far.

We are also having a brand new loft conversion at the end of the month and I’m hoping we have enough left in our budget to get some made to measure window blinds. Our neighbours’ Mr and Mrs Brand have just had a loft conversion and managed to get a good deal on some made to measure blinds in a Northamptonshire shop. I’m hoping that we can also find a bargain, as window blinds look so much better than chintzy curtains especially in a modern house.

Blinds in York

I met a friend of mine for lunch in York the other day, we had not seen each other in over a year. It was lovely to catch up and we ended up staying out for the whole day.

She was telling me about how she had recently come into some money and had bought a new flat in York city centre and was currently in the process of renovating it. Over lunch we started talking about DIY and interiors and we ended up going shopping for interiors and window blinds in York after lunch.

We visited so many shops in the city centre and a few out of town retail parks. I did not realise that there were so many different types of window blinds in York. Neither of us had a clue about window blinds, plus we had both drunk a large glass of wine each at lunch so were a bit tipsy. This did not help when the sales adviser was asking about sizes and window specifications. 

My friend Gill decided that we should go back to hers and measure the windows and also count how many windows the flat has, as she did not have a clue. So we left the shop and went to her new flat and started counting the windows and measuring the windows, but we both felt a bit tipsy and ended up opening a bottle of wine and getting drunk. The window blinds can wait another day.

Blinds in Stoke on Trent

I was shopping for window blinds in Stoke on Trent last week and could not believe how reasonable the prices were. I always assumed they were really expensive and for posh folk. I was pleasantly surprised with the prices and even the choice on offer.

I’ve always had curtains but felt I wanted something modern for my house as we have lovely big windows and having blinds will make the windows a great feature. I’m still looking for the right blinds, I’m sure I will find the right ones soon.

I was in one shop in Stoke on Trent and was chatting with the sales advisor who was ever so helpful and professional. He explained to me all the different types of window blinds available, including sizes, materials and colours. I was gobsmaked, I didn’t realise you had so much choice. When I got home I started looking online for different window blinds in Stoke on Trent and researching the different options available. I really like the look of those wooden venetian blinds. They look really stylish and smart.  I have quite an old house but it looks really modern from inside, so having wooden blinds will give the place some much needed character and personality.

I’ve organised for a shop in Stoke in Trent to come round and measure the windows and give me a price for the window blinds, so I can compare prices and decide what to do next.

Blinds in Sheffield

I’ve recently moved into this large Victorian house in Sheffield and have decided that I would like some window blinds fitted. I would like to find a manufacturer who makes made to measure blinds in Sheffield or the surrounding area.

The house has five bedrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen, dining room and a downstairs loo. I would like blinds just for the bedrooms and two reception rooms. I quite like the look of venetian blinds as a friend of mine has them and they looked gorgeous in wood. I would love to have something similar in my new house.

I’m not sure which manufacturer of window blinds in Sheffield to pick, as there are so many listed in directories and on the web.  

I have been researching into the type of window blinds available and there are so many to choose from. There are quite a few different ones so will need to go into the shops and showrooms to see for myself and decide which blinds in Sheffield I like. However, the ones my friend has are amazing. I think they are called venetian.

I am hoping the manufacturer or window blinds fitters can come round and do all the measuring and take all the specifications and give me a quote. I know I would probably make a mess of the sizes, plus I don’t really have the time to do this. I’m so busy with the move and have loads of paperwork to sort due to the move.

Blinds in Oxfordshire

Buying a new house is really time consuming and stressful. I’m a single dad with a two kids and I work full-time. I bought a new house in Oxfordshire from a friend who was moving abroad. The house was in pretty good shape and did not need much work doing to it. I painted all the rooms and moved in my old furniture from my previous house and had new window blinds fitted as have always wanted them.

I decided to have blinds in fitted in all the rooms as they look so much better than curtains. It was really easy to find window blind fitters in Oxfordshire.  There are loads to choose from. Plus many of them these days can come to your house and give you a free no obligation quote, they measure all the windows, saving you time and hassle.

I decided to have blackout blinds in the bedrooms, vertical blinds in the living rooms and roller blinds in the bedrooms. I even got blinds for the conservatory, they look really nice in there.

I found different shops and retailers online that make window blinds in Oxfordshire. Once I decided which ones I liked I visited  the shops to take a look for myself and arranged to have a quotes – it wasn’t that expensive. I’m really happy with the blinds in my rooms, they make the house look really elegan, bright in the day and I can control the amount of light.

Blinds in Nottingham

 

My flat in Nottingham has really large windows and I’ve been wanting to buy blackout blinds for a while now, but never got round to it.

I currently have curtains that I want to keep, as well as having black out blinds fitted. I don’t want to just have blinds as I feel the bedroom would look naked without curtains.

My flat is rented and the landlord will not pay for the blinds in Nottingham, as he is too tight, every time there is a problem with the flat he always tries and fobs you off. I can’t wait for the tenancy agreement to be up so I can move in somewhere else. I find it really difficult to sleep at night, as the room never goes dark due to strong lighting outside the apartment.

I have been looking at various window blinds in Nottingham and there are so many to choose from. They are not expensive either so I can’t understand why the landlord wont pay for them, it’s not like they cost hundreds of pounds.

The apartment is great otherwise, I love the spacious rooms and large bay windows, the flat has a really nice garden with an apple and pear tree. It’s great in the summer, but the only problem is the light in the room in the evening especially the bedroom. I think I am going to have to pay for the window blinds myself to get a goodnight kip.

Blinds in Northampton

I’ve moved into this large Edwardian house in Northampton and have decided that I would like some window blinds fitted. I would like to find a manufacturer who makes made to measure blinds in Northampton at a reasonable price.

The house has three bedrooms, two reception rooms, a kitchen, dining room and a downstairs shower. I would like blinds in the bedrooms and dining room. I quite like the look of venetian blinds as a friend of mine has them and they looked gorgeous in wood. I would love to have something similar in my new house.

I’m not sure which manufacturer of window blinds in Northampton to choose, as there are so many advertising in the directory.

I have been looking into the type of window blinds in Northampton and there are so many to choose from. There are loads of different ones, so I will need to go into the shops and showrooms to see for myself and decide which ones are best for me.

I am hoping the manufacturer or window blinds fitters can come round and do all the measuring and take all the specifications and give me a quote as I know I would probably make a mess of the sizes. I think some even offer a no obligation quote. Once I’ve got a list of prices I can then make a decision, which is the best one for me and my new home in Northampton.

Blinds in Newcastle

I was visiting a friend up in Newcastle as she has moved there for work. She has bought the most gorgeous house in the Jesmond area. The house has a beautiful garden, which has been designed on a Japanese garden. I loved all the water features – it really had the Japanese ‘Zen Garden’ feeling to it.

All the rooms had window blinds in them made from natural wood. She even had blackout blinds in the bedrooms. The rooms had high ceilings and were really spacious. I’ve never considered having window blinds, but after seeing Rachel’s house I think I might have to. Rachel said she researched online about window blinds in Newcastle and found a really good reputable company, which has been established for a while. She said she wanted wooden blinds as they look really stylish and elegant in this style of house and look so much better than chintzy curtains.  She was telling me about all the different types of blinds available these days.

I’ve never been to Newcastle before, but I loved it. We had a night out in the town, the people were so friendly and hospitable. I will definitely be going back up soon. I have already started looking for window blinds in Newcastle. I also think the living costs are a lot cheaper in Newcastle than the south. Especially a night out on the town – you get change when ordering two drinks at the bar. How amazing!
