Product Description

Day and Night Blinds are a great single unit that provides dimout and blackout options at the pull of a chain. The two-phase system has strips of alternating fabrics, one is dimout and another is a sheer fabric. These strips can be aligned to create a full sheer blind, a full dimout blind or a mixture of the two.

Right-Size Guarantee

Right-Size Guarantee

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.

Free Samples?

Free samples are available on all of our fabrics and slats. Simply click the ‘order free sample’ button.

Your free sample will be added to the basket ready for you to checkout. You can carry on browsing, adding as many samples to your basket as you like. When you’re ready, checkout – delivery is free too – and relax, our samples will be on their way to you in no time.

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.

We pride ourselves on the speed with which we can get your free fabric samples to you. We send your samples with first class delivery to be with you the very next day. We often dispatch them the same day you place your order (and most certainly by the next working day if you order after hours or on the weekend). With our fast free fabric sample delivery you’ll be one step closer to shading your home with some of our fabulous blinds in no time at all!
How To Measure

How to Measure

Now, you can’t mess this one up. It’s what we call ‘easy’ here at DotcomBlinds. But just in case you need some help, follow this quick guide.

First thing's first, identify whether your blind is going inside or outside of a recess. 

Inside the recess

A recess fit blind means you supply us with the width and drop of your recess – from top to bottom and wall to wall. We make deductions to account for the brackets to ensure your blind fits within the recess perfectly.

To measure a roller blind to fit inside the recess of your standard window, simply measure the full width and the height of the recess. Then input those measurements into the product page with your order selecting the ‘recess’ option. We’ll do the rest, leaving you the well-deserved excuse to put your feet up, you worked hard for it after all!

Don’t be tempted to deduct any measurements, we do this for you. Make sure you use a metal tape measure; a cloth one can stretch and give you more millimetres per centimetre than a pound-shop ruler. Also, take your measurements in three places and give us the smallest (if there is a smallest). You will find that some recesses shift and settle over time.

Outside the recess

A blind going outside of a recess is usually called an exact fit blind. An exact fit blind means we won’t make any deductions to the width or drop measurements. Exact fit is the bracket to bracket measurement and is commonly found installed outside of a recess. The size you give us is the size your blind is made to.

If you want your blind to hang outside the recess, measure the height and width but be sure to add some overlap to reduce light leakage. This overlap should be about 70mm at the top and bottom and 50mm each side, ensuring you suffer no dazzling strips of sunlight once your blind is happily installed. Please select the ‘exact’ size option when ordering. 

How To Install

How to Install

Lovely jubbly – your Day & Night blind has arrived and now all that’s left is to install it!
It’s really straight forward and it will be up in your window in no time, just follow these easy steps!

Step 1 - Headbox Option

Our brackets can either be fitted top fix (to the top of the recess or to the ceiling), or face fix (on to a wall), so decide on which way these brackets will be fitted before you start drilling holes.
The first two brackets need to be fitted as close to the ends of the blind as possible, just make sure they don’t get in the way of the mechanism. If your blind is particularly large you will have additional brackets which should be placed evenly along the width of the blind to support the weight.
Mark with a pencil where the brackets are to be fixed and then drill the holes.
Once the hole has been drilled, insert a wall plug and screw the brackets firmly in place.

Step 2 - Headbox Option

To attach the blind, hook the front ridge of the headrail into the front of the top clip. Push the cassette up until the back ridge slides in and clips into the back of the top clip, snapping the headrail into place.

Step 3 - Headbox Option

Fit the child safety device by putting the chain through the hook, positioning the device in a position that ensures the chain is under tension but not strained (as this will cause damage to the chain). The chain should end 1500mm above the floor to ensure it is out of reach of children. Mark where the hole needs to drilled and then drill the hole, insert the wall plug and screw into place.

Fitting for vertical blind

Step 1 - Standard (without Headbox)

The bracket needs to be fitted to the top of the recess (this version of the blind can only be top fixed). Drill a single hole, insert the wall plug and screw the bracket into place, making sure the protruding tab of the bracket is closest the window. Repeat this for the other bracket.

Brackets must sit on each side of the rail, about 50mm away from the end. Make sure that any remaining brackets are evenly distributed along the rail. Position the front edge of the bracket at least 70mm away from the window. You should also take into consideration any fixings on your windows such as handles that might obstruct the blind as it’s raised and lowered.


Step 2 - Standard (without Headbox)

To attach the blind, hook the front ridge of the headrail into the front of the top clip. Push the cassette up until the back ridge slides in and clips into the back of the top clip, snapping the headrail into place.

If you need to take the blind down from the brackets once it has been installed, push the protruding tab on the bracket upwards which opens the bracket slightly. Next twist the back of the headrail downwards to release the blind.

Step 3 - Standard (without Headbox)

The chain tidy will be attached to the chain when the blind arrives. The chain tidy should be at a maximum distance from the control mechanism, keeping the chain taut (not under excessive tension however as this could negatively affect the longevity and operation of the blind). Put the retaining device on the wall, mark fixing holes with a pencil, drill the holes and screw the device to the wall with suitable fixings.

Headbox options

Day & Night blinds comes with a choice of either coming with a headbox or without.


A non-headbox Day & Night blind means the fabric can be seen wrapped around the barrel, and the brackets are visible. Blinds without a headbox can only be top fixed and can't be face fixed.


The headbox fully encloses the barrel and control mechanism and is covered in a Jet Black colour-matched fabric (left) as is the bottom bar. This creates a neat and tidy finish for the blind and protects the fabric from dust and damage.
A Day & Night blind comes with universal brackets and can be top and face fixed.
