DO THE PHOTOGRAPHS SHOW BLINDS THAT YOU HAVE FITTED?

Yes, virtually all of the images used in our image gallery show actual conservatory blinds installations that we have carried out.

Some images have been taken by our installers after they have fitted the blinds; so the lighting may not be ideal and the conservatory could be quite bare. But these points are minor compared to the benefit of seeing the blinds in a real-life situation.

There are a few images where we have used the supplier’s marketing images instead. (Because we don’t have sufficient images of our own to show the blinds at their best) but we always state this in the description and, by definition, these are limited to less popular ranges (such as Perfect Fit blinds).

All of the most popular conservatory blinds show photographs that we have taken of blinds that we have installed. We do not pass off other people’s photographs as our own; like many other retailers.

HOW ACCURATE ARE YOUR PRICE GUIDES?

We have tried to make our price guides as representative as possible without being artificially cheap or expensive. To this end, our Price Guides exclude unusually cheap or expensive fabrics that would otherwise skew the results.

We have checked the Price Guides against “real life” orders of similar sizes and designs (as well as pro-rata calculations) and found them to be fairly accurate.

Obviously every conservatory is different (however slight) and so it is impossible to be 100% accurate when pricing a “theoretical” conservatory with so many different blinds, layouts and fabric options.

Nevertheless we believe our Price Guides to be very fair and representative of the conservatories shown.

WHY ARE THERE 'FROM' AND 'TO' PRICES IN THE PRICE GUIDES?

Even if we know the shape and size of a conservatory as well the blind range; there are big differences in cost due to the choice of fabrics and the layout of the blinds.

Fabrics vary hugely in cost and an unusual colour selection would result in a high degree of wastage; resulting in a higher cost. Our most popular fabrics are discounted because we buy them in large quantities from the same fabric batch. This ensures very little wastage.

Fabrics also vary in width and so depending on the blind layout and fabric selection. The cost “per blind” will vary accordingly. For instance, fabrics that are supplied 1.5m wide will result in a higher price per blind; than fabrics that are supplied 2m wide.

The layout of blinds in a conservatory also greatly affects price. This is because very large blinds will always be cheaper. Very big blinds covering more than one pane of glass may not be recommended because of appearance, operation and longevity. But they are cheaper and many retailers price on this basis to provide the cheapest quotation.

Infill blinds are another consideration. Many conservatories have awkward shapes which can only be accommodated by small infills/fixed blinds which also add to the cost. The extent of these varies with each conservatory and so cannot be estimated without inspecting the conservatory first.

To ensure that our Price Guides do not vary too much we actually exclude unusually expensive fabrics; or cheap/discontinued fabrics. In other words the prices could be actually lower and/or higher than our Price Guides suggest.

We have often noticed that when competing against a seemingly cheaper quotation for conservatory blinds; when we re-price based on the same specification we are actually cheaper. This is all because of the cheap fabric selection and blind layout.

Our Lowest Price Guarantee means that we will honestly not be beaten on price.
