Hello All,

I am looking for two roller blinds for a kitchen and bathroom as well as four vertical blinds for a living room and three bedrooms. What are my best options here and is there anywhere in Belfast who supply and fit for a reasonable price?

Thank you.

    We've had good price and service from Apex blinds in Lisburn, I believe they have an outlet in Belfast. Been decent with us.

    I think that most blinds in NI are made by Decora and the various blind shops are just middle men. Apex we found helpful and the lady in the Lisburn office is a very nice person! Elite may make blinds, we had blinds from them, good quality but the 'fitting' was woeful, a real mess made of the reveals. However, if you are fitting them yourself then it probably doesn't matter much where they are bought from. Personally I like blackout blinds but that's just my preference.

    The gentleman from Apex is calling out this evening to provide me with a quote.

    Apex came out this evening and a very nice man provided us with a quote, we thought it very high so have decided to get a second quote, any further recommendations?

    I got a flyer this week from classic blinds .3 vertical blinds for £89 .I have no idea of size or quality but might be worth a look .

    Thanks Old Git, I will arrange a quotation from them.
  • Elite also messed up our installation (damage, messy, etc). The blinds were fine, so would only recommend if you were going to put them up yourself or have your own handyman.
  • Sister thought this company were very reasonable and were brilliant to deal with,she price matched with elite and they knocked another £30 off price.
