Blinds Supermarket review

When we moved in to this house, I wanted to make sure that my children's bedroom was finished. It was the one room I was adamant that I wanted to look good. I renovated the whole attic, and it was a huge job. You can check out the progress I made in this post. I bought new blackout curtains, but the way the curtain pole is fixed meant that there was still quite a lot of light in the room, especially during the summer. So when I was recently asked by Blinds Supermarket if I would like to review a blind, I thought it was a great idea.

Bella Aubergine
I had a good look at the site and my favourite fabric was this one, which is called Bella Aubergine. It went well with the colour of the blackout curtains in their room and I thought it was fun and really vibrant. I measured the recess that the blind needed to go in. There's a helpful guide on the Blinds Supermarket website which is very easy to follow. Basically you need to measure different areas depending on the kind of place you want to put the blind. If I had wanted a blind which covered the outside of the recess then I would have needed to measure the frame of the window rather than the recess it was in.

The blind arrived quickly and was well packaged. Inside the pack are all the screws and rawlplugs you need to fit the blind. Luckily I was fitting it straight into wood, so I didn't need to use any rawlplugs. It was incredibly simple to fit, in spite of the fact that it is a very tight spot to fit it in to. The blind comes with a fixture to attach the pull control cord firmly to the wall. This is so important, especially with children in the house, to make sure that the control is securely fastened. The blind is good and covers the window well and keeps all that bright sunlight out, meaning my husband and I get a bit more sleep during the summer months!

The only problem with the blind is that it now makes the window right next to it look really ugly! I am definitely going to have to buy a second blind get rid of my botched blind attempts on the other window!

Disclosure: I was provided with a blind free of charge from Blinds Supermarket for the purpose of this review. This had no impact on my post, which is honest and fair.
