Vertical Face vs Top Fixed
What is face-fixed window blind?
When a window blind is face-fixed, it is installed onto a wall, and occasionally on the window frame (although this is less common). Face-fixed blinds are typically associated with exact fit blinds that are mounted on the wall outside of a recess or for blinds covering a non-recessed window.
What is a top-fixed window blind?A top-fixed window blind is installed in an upward direction, typically at the top of the recess or ceiling. Our brackets offer flexibility, allowing you to choose either top or face fixing for your blind.
Sustainably Sourced & Handmade in Yorkshire
All our blinds are hand-crafted & built-to-last in our factory in Yorkshire. While many retailers rely on importing blinds & marking up prices significantly to cover high street rental costs, we offer a more affordable alternative all whilst supporting British manufacturing.
Adding Measure Cover to your order means that even if you make a mistake with your measurements and your blind doesn't fit, you'll be able to claim a like-for-like replacement for up to 4 of your blinds for free. The only cost to you will be any difference in price, if your new measurements are larger.

Frequently asked questions
How should I measure my window for blinds?
We recommend using a high-quality steel measuring tape to measure the width in three different places and the drop. Refer to our comprehensive Measuring Guide, which includes detailed step-by-step instructions
What distinguishes a 'Recess Size' from a 'Blind Size'?
When ordering blinds on our website, specify whether your measurements are for a 'Recess Size' or 'Blind Size.' The distinction is crucial as it impacts the final size of your blind.
1. A Recess Size pertains to the internal measurements of your window reveal. Provide exact wall-to-wall and ceiling-to-sill measurements with no reductions, and we'll make the necessary adjustments to ensure a perfect fit within the space.
2. A Blind Size is the precise size you desire for the blind, including brackets. This is applicable when mounting the blind on the wall outside your window recess.
How do I measure my bay window for blinds?
Measuring for a bay window can be tricky due to necessary reductions in the corners. Simply provide us with measurements of all available space and the bay angle, and we'll handle the reductions for a perfect fit.
I plan to fit my blind outside the recess.
The degree of overlap is at your discretion, but as a general rule, we advise a 10cm overlap.
How easy is it to install my blinds?
Fitting window blinds is generally straightforward. Everything inlcuding Brackets are provided, which are easily screwed into your recess or wall for the blind to fit into. Visit our Fitting Guide for specific instructions and step-by-step guidance.
Can I change the control side on my roller blind?
