Thanks, been using the £3 ikea blinds for 6+ months and waiting for something decent and/or pretty, this will do for now
thanks just ordered for the little ones room, hopefully means i get to stay in bed longer in the mornings.
We've tried various blinds now varying from the IKEA ones that were here when we bought the place, to John Lewis out the box ones, to a couple of expensive made to measure ones. I've found that you pretty much get what you pay for, especially around the fittings/mechanisms.

The John Lewis ones were barely better than the IKEA ones with really cheap and nasty fittings and the blinds just kept falling off. We tried a mid range made to measure one called Bloc Blinds (also sold by John Lewis) which were pretty good, but in the end we settled for Luxaflex. These were nearly £200 a set but really are much better than everything else you can get. Just wished we jumped straight to these instead of wasting money on the other crap ones.

There must be a branch nearby, they're everywhere!
Damn - this is my THIRD BLIND. We cut the other ones incorrectly x2 as light leaks in at the edges! Thanks for posting saved me another tenner
Thanks. Ordered.
With the Brexit vote I figured black out blinds would be going up in price as the chance of invasion has increased.
Useful for anyone who likes to have exactly 12 hours of darkness a day.

If my window is bigger than the biggest blind can I order 2 and use them together?

Surely people will need these less for their homes if we get control of our borders back?
How can white or cream blinds be blackout blinds ? surely they let some light in ? (voted hot by the way need at least one of them but must decide on the colour).

Also do they have the little plastic chain on the side or is it just a pull down/up system ?

Just purchased the largest size in cream, reviews suggest that they keep the sun out just fine.

Thanks OP.

They are made of multiple layers to ensure no holes and the material will through reflection and absorption block a very high percentage (99.9+%) of the incoming light... you may get some leakage round the edges if you have as bad fit but not through the blind, no.

been looking for a deal - 12 ordered
A few quid might come back though topcashback too
If you wait a few more weeks, you'll have all the "blackout" you could ever wish for, i.e. cloudy, miserable English weather for the next 10 months

You can't physically join them together but nothing stopping you putting two right next to each other side by side. Eg we have one window around 3m wide, but split into two panes, one 1m wide, and one 2m wide. So we have a 1m blind and a 2m side by side, with the chains on opposite sides.
Anyone know how easy these are to cut to size?

Just ordered 2 OP - thankyou.

£200 for a set of blinds is very costly for most people here. The principle of "you get what you pay for" applies to nearly all upholstery items.

I bought some from eBay a good 6 years ago for not a lot of money and they are still working the same as the day I first fitted them, both of them run very smooth rolling up or down

We got the standard Luxaflex roller blinds. They have sheer and blackout options. We found that the fabric quality is similar to bloc blinds, perhaps marginally better. But the roller/chain mechanism is much better quality and a lot smoother. The chain in the bloc blinds were a bit stiff even after adding a bit of grease. The bloc blind still looks great and we've kept the one we ordered, just not as good as Luxaflex. We changed all the others in the house to Luxaflex.

We went to John Lewis first to look at the Luxaflex samples (they have millions of them) then ordered them from Vale Blinds which charge about 40% less. You just type in the window dimensions and you get all the prices. Hope that helps.

none in stock in 5 local stores.
Every single Screwfix shop near me in central London was Out of Stock, that's about 7, for this one-day promo. Imagine my surprise...
