We can certainly give you some tips. When you choose a blind you need to think about:

  • the room you want it to go in
  • how much control you want over the light
  • the size of your window
  • whether you want special features like blackout material or washable fabrics
  • You’ll find information about what each type of blind can offer on our product pages.
  • Our free home or business visit will help you choose the right product for your window and budget.
  • You can order blinds for the sides of your conservatory from ACME Blinds.
  • The most popular types are Vertical blinds, Venetian blinds and Pleated blinds.
  • If you have a uPVC conservatory you just need to take care to avoid screwing into the sealed unit when you fit your blinds.
  • If you want blinds for the roof of your conservatory, we recommend you make an appointment with your local outlet, which will offer an expert measuring and fitting service.
  • Our wood Venetians are made from basswood grown in sustainable forests.
  • Basswood is perfect for Venetian blinds because of its strength and flexibility.
  • The wood is kiln dried, which stabilises it, cut into slats then stained in different colours. Like all our blinds, our wooden Venetian blinds are tested and checked before they leave the factory.

Yes we sell blackout blinds. We have a selection of blackout Roller blinds and blackout Roman blinds.

  • All our blinds are designed to reduce light, but our Pleated blinds are ideal for keeping the temperature comfortable too.
  • Most of our pleated fabrics have reflective coatings to reflect heat and glare. They reduce heat in summer and keep it inside in the winter.
  • See our pleated blinds
  • Our Vertical blinds come with a white headrail as standard. We also offer optional black and champaign colour headrails.
  • If you already have a headrail you want to keep, you can just buy new louvres.
  • These have white bottom weights, chains and hangers.
  • All our Roman Blinds come with chain operated mechanisms.
  • See our Roman Blinds Collection

Yes we have a wide range of washable fabrics.

  • Our blinds are all rigorously tested to make sure they’re safe around children and animals.

  • As wood is a natural product, each wooden Venetian blind looks different. The grain may vary between each slat and there may be other features like pin knots, tiger striping, burl figures and mineral deposit.
  • Because these make some slats darker or lighter than others, we sort each of our slat shades into 3 colour categories and always make sure a blind is made using slats from the same category.
  • Samples only give you an idea of what your wooden Venetian blind will look like. Your finished blind will always have its own variations, which makes it unique.
  • If you don’t like these natural characteristics, we recommend a wood effect Venetian blind
