Sometimes you just need some peace of mind when you come to place an order for your blinds. With DotcomBlind’s Right-Size Guarantee you can have just that. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will replace a blind with the correct size if you get the measurements wrong when you order.
Why do I need this Insurance?
We can’t accept returns or provide refunds for blinds that are mis-measured because all of our blinds are made to measure and so the onus is on the customer to get the measurements right for their blinds. Sometimes you might just be having an off-day, get your centimetres and inches mixed up and end up with a blind that is nigh-on useless. With our Right-Size Guarantee we will take that blind back, remake it to the correct size for you and send it back, saving you from having to buy a totally new blind!
How does it work?
✔ Purchase Right-Size Guarantee when you place your order
✔ If one of your blinds has been measured incorrectly, get in touch with us within 14 days and we’ll tell you how to return the blind to us.
✔ Once your blind is with us, we’ll remake it or adjust the blind to your correct measurements and send it back.
✔ Please read our terms and conditions for full details as you will incur additional costs returning the blind to us.

Why order samples?We always recommend ordering samples to ensure you fall in love with the fabric or slat. Screen resolution and brightness settings vary and you may find some fabrics look a little different in real life to how they appear on a screen. You can hold a sample in your hands, feel the fabrics, the weave and see the opacity before your very eyes, something you can’t recreate online.
We’ve made every effort to accurately portray the fabric realistically, but you can never be too careful.

Our range of Made to Measure Replacement Vertical Slats can be manufactured in Three finishes :
Slat Only – No Chains or Weights
By default, your replacement slats will be supplied without bottom weights or chains. The Slats will be supplied with an enclosed hanger to fit your existing headrail. This is the perfect option if you are looking to reuse your existing weights and chains, if you have standard weights then they should just slide into our pockets which will easily take up to a 50mm (height) weight. (Without weights your slats will not hang correctly, all slats are intended to have a weight of some description used).
Slat with Chains and Weights
The no-fuss ready-to-go option! Your replacement slats will be provided with weights ensuring your slats drop correctly along with a plastic chain keeping the slats nice and neat and preventing them from moving excessively.
Slat with Enclosed Weights (no Chains)
This is the perfect option when the use of a chain between the slats isn’t desired. Each replacement slat is supplied with a 21g weight sealed into the bottom of the slat ensuring your slat hangs taught.
How to Measure for Slats Only
If you are simply replacing your existing slats then measuring couldn’t be any easier!
Simply take your trusty old tape measure and measure the total length (drop) of the fabric. For the geeks among us, this is referred to in the trade as shoulder to shoulder (or hem to hem).
If you aren’t able to measure the existing slats measure from the bottom of the headrail hook (peg) to where you would like the fabric to finish.
Drop measurements will need to be taken in centimetres (cm) for replacement slats.
Just a little note.. think about where you would like your replacement slats to sit above the bottom, if you make the measurement too long you run the risk of them either bunching up on the bottom or being dragged across when operating your blind.
Super easy to clean and perfect for busy households, simply wipe with a cloth to keep these blinds look spick-and-span!
A fire retardant blind will only smoulder when presented with a flame and will self-extinguish once the heat source has been removed.
All our blinds come with child safe features as standard but some are inherently more child safe due to the deliberate removal of chains and cords.
Fabric Fronted Blackout
Many fabrics in our blackout blind range have a patterned or coloured fabric front to them with a plastic backing.
Moisture resistant blinds do not absorb or retain water, meaning they will not rot when exposed to damp conditions. Ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.
This Blind is available for Next Day Delivery. Order before 11am to have it despatched the same day to be with you the very next working day. All you have to do is select ‘Next Day Delivery’ when you checkout and we’ll take care of the rest.
If you order after 11am, we’ll still process your order as a priority and despatch it the next working day to be with you the following working day, but we can’t guarantee that it will be with you the day after you place your order, unless we discover light-speed or time travel in the meantime!
Next Day Delivery only applies to selected blinds and isn’t applicable to other non-qualifying blinds ordered at the same time. If you’re located within the Channel Islands of the Scottish Highlands we’ll still despatch in super quick time but the couriers may take a little longer to get to you, so please allow 48 or 72 hours for delivery.Why order before 11am?
Ordering before 11am ensures we are able to fit your blind into the day’s work schedule for our factory to get it built ready in time to catch the courier. Your order will jump the queue of work and head right to the front where our expert team will build your made to measure blind in time for it to arrive at your home in 24 hours’ time. Now, how’s that for service?
Fire RetardancyThis blind fabric has been treated and tested to ensure it is fire retardant. You can’t see the chemical and it is totally safe, but it means should the fabric ever come into contact with a flame or heat source, it will only ever smoulder and go out once the source of heat has been removed.
Having a FR window blind gives you added peace of mind and safety, helping to keep little accidents from turning into full blown tragedies.
This blind fabric is fire retardant to BS 5867 Part 2 Type B, meaning it has been made to a particular standard certified for use in homes and commercial properties across Britain. During testing a flame is applied to the lower part of the fabric, near the bottom. It is tested to ensure that no burning matter falls off, that it extinguishes quickly and doesn’t spread to the edges in a scenario similar to a candle on a windowsill coming into contact with the blind. Whilst we don’t recommend putting candles or alike near the blind, it is reassuring to know that if something as simple as this was to occur, the result would be a lot less costly.
