Make My Blinds

Make My Blinds offered to send us a new blind to review, and I jumped at the opportunity as I was looking at getting a new kitchen blind.

Make My Blinds are an online retailer that is based in Bristol but cover the whole of the UK and was founded in 2015 and for the past 4 years has strived hard to become the authority in the blind industry. 

Make My Blinds claim to stand for more than just blinds, they are all about quality, ease and making buying your blinds online as simple as possible.

So now the introductions over let’s get down to the review.

I ordered the African Parrot With Iron Tape Wooden Blind after browsing the large selection of blinds available on their website. The website is well designed and easy to use, I especially liked the menu system where you can at a glance chose the type of blind, features, and colours you are looking for.


They have a wide variety of helpful articles in the Learn section of the site, and I especially found the articles Wooden Blind FAQ’s and Faux Wood vs Real Wooden Blinds helpful.

Placing your order on the site is simple and has a handy “What does this mean?” section on each order entry field to help if you are not sure what information they require.

The blind took less than a week to be delivered and arrived well packaged as to not cause any damage during transit.

The item came with step-by-step instructions which are well written and super easy to follow.

In regards to the installation of the blind, I left that job to my father who begrudgingly volunteered to install it for me. I’m assured the instructions were simple to follow, and he managed to successfully install it without any help.

Once up, the blind looks just spot-on. It has brightened up my kitchen and give the room a whole new feel.

The blind fits perfectly and you can tell from the feel of it that it is good quality and a well made blind. I was especially impressed with the little safety feature on the cords in case anyone gets tangled up in them. The cords of the blind will just snap apart to prevent any serious accidents.

Having seen how nice this blind looks, I’m now planning on replacing the rest of the blinds in the house and Make My Blinds will be my first point of call.

African Parrot With Iron Tape Wooden Blind is available to buy at Make My Blinds.
