    Day Night Blinds 15th Jun 17 at 11:17 PM
    Does anyone know a firm in or near Belfast that makes day night blinds.
    My kitchen window is an odd size so I will have to get one made to measure
    Thank you

    do mean blackout blinds - block most of the light?
    If so...

    No
    This is a roller blind which you can adjust to let in as much or as little light as you like

    that's true of any blackout roller blind (just roll it up or down). Bloc do lots of different types, blackout ordinary and semi, and have instructions for measuring for custom sizes.

    Note, not all window spaces can be fitted. I was looking at a custom size for a bedroom roller blind, but the window shape is not square enough for a true blackout... I have them in standard sizes on two velux windows, however.

    I fitted one last week in the bathroom. Pair of scissors and a hacksaw (very simple cut) were all that were required to adjust the size.

    Ikea TUPPLUR - ~£10 depending on the size you want.

    Thank you both for your advice but I am looking for a supplier near Belfast and I am looking for a day night blind.This is different from the blind you are suggesting

    I think the kind of thing you're referring to is called a Zebra blind on the Bloc website. "Day Night" is probably a particular brand...

    Day and night blinds are a particular type of blind not a branded name. Andersons interiors do them (luxaflex brand) and newgeneration blinds. I would recommend you get both out to quote. They are different price brackets but not that different product wise. Both companies are in Belfast, the first has a showroom, the second is mobile and will bring samples to your home. Good luck with it.
