How to Measure
First thing's first, identify whether your blind is going inside or outside of a recess.
Inside the recess
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
Choosing the best control option for you
We provide two control options with our venetian blinds, meaning you can choose the right means of operating your blind to suit your needs, location of the window and the room you choose to install it in.
Cord / Wand
A cord or wand operated venetian blind works by lowering and raising the blind with the cord and adjusting the slats with the wand. This more traditional method is a popular means of operating a venetian blind, providing a great level of control over how much light can enter a room.
A chain operated venetian blind is an enormous innovation in the world of blinds. A single chain operates the raising and lowering of the blind whilst also controlling the tilt of the slats. The single chain is fitted at one end giving a neater appearance overall with a blind free from cords and a wand. This innovative mechanism ensures the blind constantly stays level when lifted and slats can be angled more accurately.
Ensuring our products are child safe is a priority for all of us at DotcomBlinds. As a result, our blinds are child safe by design, with built-in safety mechanisms to help reduce the risk of an accident. These mechanisms specific to venetian blinds are:
• All cords provided with our products are made at a maximum length of one metre
• A cleat is provided with every looped cord operated blind. The cord needs to be wrapped tightly around the cleat in a figure-of-eight after every use
• Chain tensioners (or p-clips as they're also known) and cord tidies are supplied with every chain operated venetian
If you have any questions around child safety and our blinds, please do not hesitate to get in touch, we're always happy to help.

Free Samples?Free samples are available on all of our fabrics and slats. Simply click the ‘order free sample’ button.
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.
Quick TurnaroundWe 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!
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.
Moisture resistant blinds do not absorb or retain water, meaning they will not rot when exposed to damp conditions. Ideal for kitchens and bathrooms.
