Custom-built or ready-made blinds: which is right for you?

If you’re considering bringing blinds into your home and aren’t sure whether to stick to ready-made blinds or custom-built counterparts, here’s everything you need to know.

Ready-made or custom-built? Which style of blind is right for you?


Whichever blind style or size you choose, hanging it correctly and safely isn’t always an easy task. Thankfully with custom-made blinds, the hard work is done for you. Typically, installation fees are included in the final price so you’ll have peace of mind that the professional fitter has the skills and tools needed to ensure your blinds are perfectly hung.

If you know how to hang blinds properly, a ready-made option can be an ideal choice. But if you don’t possess the skills or have the correct equipment to do so, you may damage the blind, walls or yourself.


Once blinds are installed and hung and ready for use, you’ll be able to reap the rewards of your window treatment and view the finished product in all its glory.

With custom-built blinds, you’ll see how each edge perfectly aligns with your window frame – no matter its size or shape. Better yet, if you have chosen a fabric that matches your existing decor scheme, you can enjoy a cohesive and complementing look.

On the other hand, ready-made roller blinds are pre-manufactured to fit only standard window sizes and shapes, so you can’t always guarantee a perfect fit once installed. Furthermore, there are a limited selection of materials and colours available, unlike an endless choice when choosing custom-made.

Create a complementing decor scheme with custom-built blinds.
