4 Reasons to Book a Measure and Quote for Your New Blinds

Trying to decide if you should hire an expert to measure and install your new blinds, or just roll up your sleeves and do it yourself? Before you reach for the measuring tape, ask yourself these four important questions. If you can answer ‘yes’ to all of them, go forth and DIY! But if not? It might be time to call a pro.

Find out if DIY is right for you

Do you know exactly what you want?

Buying readymade curtains or blinds is great if you know exactly what you want. Problem is, we rarely do! It’s hard enough to decide what to eat for dinner most nights, so with the mammoth range of styles, features and options available when it comes to blinds and awnings, you’d be forgiven for being a little indecisive! Getting an expert in to check out your space, help you nut out the different products and styles and suggest the best option for your needs could be the difference between blinds that look mediocre, and those that make the whole room pop.

Are you confident in your measuring skills?

Even natural DIY types don’t nail it (geddit?!) every time, so if you’re not 100% sure you’ve got the measurements exact, it’s better to leave it to the experts. Most windows and doors aren’t ‘perfect’ squares or rectangles and their irregular sizes make them a challenge to measure correctly. Made-to-measure blinds will ensure the finished fit, and look, is bang-on perfect. The last thing you want is to give it a crack only for the blinds to be a few cm off - it’s just time and money down the drain.

Can you install them correctly?

Some jobs look simpler than they are and usually require an expert to do them correctly. Installing blinds is one of those jobs, so if you’re going to tackle the task, make sure you know what you’re doing. Some blinds are definitely easier to install than others, but if you’re a bit rusty in the DIY department, our advice is to step away from the ladder and pick up the phone. A pro will get the job done quick and easy, so you can skip straight to enjoying your new room.

Have you received the right advice?

When you’re investing in quality blinds or curtains, particularly if you’re unsure whether to measure and install yourself or have a professional do it for you, you should feel confident that you’ve received the best advice about the product that you’re buying. Receiving a free, expert in-home measure and quote will help you enjoy complete peace of mind that you’re making the right choice.
