Heavy lined curtains are a tried and tested way to keep in heat, but there are more effective options. “A clever solution is thermal blinds,” says Julia Kendell, an interior designer and TV presenter (juliakendell.com). She recommends a new product by the designer Katy Duke. Her thermal blinds lock onto the frame with magnets and are made with materials used in skiwear. The panels … are as effective as triple glazing, Duke says.

Blinds are now up and feeling so lovely and cosy in here ….  Ciara S.

Thank for the blinds, they look great! Beautifully made. Jodie A.

Many thanks for the blind. Looks great in our daughter’s bedroom. Very happy. Simon B.

Just to let you know that I’ve received the blinds and paid the balance. The blinds look beautiful: we’ve fitted one already, and we’re very pleased indeed. Many thanks for your hard work. Alexandra P.

I’ve just fitted the blind which is the perfect size and looks great. We’re looking forward to a warmer bathroom as the nights draw in and may well order another for our youngest’s bedroom in the next couple of weeks. Simon B.

Thanks so much, blind arrived and up in around 10 mins and is working wonders with a nice cosy room for my baby girl tonight. May be in touch with further orders in future. Michelle R.

The bamboo coloured blind you sent us last month looks wonderful.  I would now like to order one for another bedroom. Linda G.

I finally sorted out a suitable packing piece and fitted the blind you made for me in the correct position and it is excellent – I’m really pleased with it. …. I’d like to go ahead with another blind, please. Gary S.

… blind is up and fits perfectly and we’re very pleased with it!  I haven’t used the magnets yet, but I suspect that when the weather gets colder we’ll do that too. Thanks again for a very well made product, Bernard T.

Just to say we love our new blind – it looks great, keeps the room much warmer and from my point of view, the best thing about it is that it is completely blocked out all light, including our neighbour’s security light! So total success! Rachel A.

… the blinds have now been put up and all is well. We are very pleased with the heavy duty winders which make raising and lowering the blinds a real breeze and don’t put so much stress on the chain. We would also like to order a blind for our dining room window (with heavy duty winder). Adam V.

I managed to get to the boat on Friday … tested the blind in position over the kitchen window (its the only one without curtains and a rail to hinder the positioning), which worked perfectly with the configuration you have made. Narrowboat owner, Tony G.

All the blinds we have so far are all fitted, all right size and looking great!! … I am just getting ready to put the next order together now and will send over for quote shortly. Steve M.

I am dead chuffed with the first one – think they will be really great. Pamela D.

I ordered a blind from you last year. It is great, really well made – thanks. I would like to get some more blinds for the rest of my flat. Lorna H.

A quick note to say that the blinds are installed and look great. David G.

The blind arrived yesterday and having put it up now we’re very pleased with how it looks. We would definitely like to order two more blinds so I will be in touch shortly to confirm sizing details once we have decided which colours we would like to go for. Richard D.
