Hi,

Anyone know anywhere you can get a 220cm wide venetian blind from? Looks like most highstreet prices Dunelm etc dont go to that size.

Thanks

Dan

check ebay for custom made ones

As above, eBay, or Hilarys?

Just as a side note, be aware that it may sag in the middle, I had a 3mtr(ish) wide venetian few years ago in my old house, sagged in the middle when raised.

As mentioned,might be an idea to get smaller ones,when I had that type I had 3 on a huge window.

The wooden ones were quite heavy to lift up to to clean the windows too,so that might be something to think about,unless you have them already and that's not a concern.

there are a couple of websites that custom make them i use blinds direct

I've used Blinds 2go for 2 custom wooden blinds recently. Good price and quality (I'm not affiliated to them).

i have 2 2m wide windows both with heavy wooden ventian blinds. you need to put extra support brackets in the middle. interestingly when i bought the first one they came with two extra middle brackets. no sagging and i think they can hold a lot more weight, too.

the second time (a decade later) they came with none so i went to another shop and bought the brackets separately. hmmm. i was not pleased. just a thought to check if they come with the middle brackets. bettter in the long run.

also mum bought cheapo wilkinsons' small plastic blinds for small kitchen windows for £10.00. we thought it was a bargain. but they sagged within the year. the slats sort of warped in direct sunlight. but my stronger aluminium kitchen ones (double that price) lasted a decade and only got changed as the whites were not bright any more.

I agree. We bought some made-to-measure blinds from then too.
Like many other companies, they also send out free samples.
