Tuiss Blinds

One of the things we found with having little people is the need for an extra layer of light damping in the kids bedrooms. Even though both Fifi and the Boy have lined curtains, if a chink of light creeps in at 4.30am on a summers day, that’s enough to wake them up and convince them that the day has started and it’s time to make a fuss.
At the time we put up cheap roller blinds from a popular catalogue shop but we now regret it. They do a job but look pretty ugly when the curtains are open. Of course what we should have done is spent a couple of pounds more on a nice colour coordinated blind from Tuiss Blinds. The blinds sold by Tuiss are featured on Grand Designs and Ideal Home. The roller blinds are a very reasonable £35, which for made to measure blinds is pretty good. The roller blind I hacked up with a junior hacksaw was £15, so the price differential isn’t bad at all.
Tuiss of course do the full range of blinds, from roman, to venetian, and of course wooden blinds.The do plain wooden blinds and taped wooden blinds, starting at a reasonable £28 for the plain version.
Given the price, I wish we’d opted for something more luxuriant in the first place.

    Tuiss have nice blinds, but a nightmare to put up. I have 2 roman blinds, the first one clicked into place with one of the brackets, then the bobble fell off so the blind started to unravel and I could not click the other bracket into place. I could not face putting up the other blind, so waited until I could get my more DIY-savvy brother-in-law to help me, and he also could not click the blinds into place. He has recommended that I get a baton, fix the blind onto that and then fix the baton to the window frame. So I’m currently unable to recommend Tuiss, despite their excellent website, range, prices and delivery – their fixtures are very difficult to put up.

    I had a nightmare when I ordered from Tuiss. Initially I was impressed with their well laid out website and their speedy delivery of samples but from there it went downhill rapidly. The fabric for the roman blind I ordered was out of stock. I had to keep hassling them as to why my order was delayed before I was offered an apology and a £20 refund off the total price. The blind arrived and had a mark on it so I refused to accept it. I was then informed that the 2nd blind did not pass their quality control check so they were remaking it. When the 3rd blind arrive (nearly 5 months after I first order it) it had not been finished correctly so did not pull up, there were no fixing brackets attached and the general workmanship was very shoddy. When I complained they refunded me my money but no blind. Very disappointed.
