See also ‘3 Year Guarantee’ details at the top of this page.
Order Processing / Cancellation
When ordering your goods you are entering in to a legal binding contract. Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, made to measure goods, e.g. blinds, are excluded from this legislation and the seven-day cancellation rights.
As the goods are made to measure, and the manufacturing process commences immediately your order is placed, you cannot amend or cancel your order, return goods or seek refund of price paid from you to us.
We have the right to cancel your order if we have insufficient stock to process your order or if the goods ordered have been discontinued.
If an item is out of stock we will notify you as soon as possible to let you know of the delay.
If for any reason beyond our control we are unable to supply a particular item, we will notify you as soon as possible. No discounts or compensation can be offered under these unforeseen circumstances.
Measurements / Measuring Guide
All of the goods we offer are made to sizes specified by you, the customer. It is your responsibility to take the correct measurements of your window. If you are unsure about any products or how to measure please call our Customer Support Team for help before ordering or consult the online measuring guide. You must check the product details and measurements of the goods before placing your order online and you are responsible for checking the order via the email confirmation. As all of Shades Blinds’ products are made to measure, we cannot accept returns or provide refunds if you have given us any incorrect measurements.
Made to Measure Products
Made to measure products are custom made by Shades Blinds to your stated requirements. Once made our products are suitable only to you and therefore cannot be cancelled or returned. Because of this it is extremely important that you are sure about the product that you want and also the size you require. We advise that you take advantage of our free sample service before placing an order. We strongly recommend that you double check your order to ensure that the products ordered and measurements taken are correct. This does not affect your statutory rights.
Please note that our fabric is cut by highly skilled professionals who will be as accurate as possible within a variance of +/- 2cm. We will not replace the order if the sizes are within this tolerance limit and you will not be entitled to reject the goods.
Most fabrics are dyed and therefore each batch can vary slightly in shade. Due to colour variations between product batches we cannot guarantee shade matching for previous orders. In addition, samples dispatched to you may also be slightly different in shade to the eventual order received. Due to the print design of some pattern fabrics it may be that the sample dispatched does not show the full range of colours or pattern design. If you are in any doubt as to the precise nature of the fabric you are advised to call our Customer Support Team on 0333 777 8557 for further advice.
Product Imagery / Photography / Description
All products we offer are either photographed or digitally produced and are accurately displayed on the website. However, due to different types, styles and settings of various digital devices, shading and colour may appear differently to the exact colour in reality. We therefore strongly advise that you request a free sample prior to placing your order to ensure that you are happy with the colour before ordering. Whilst every attempt will be made by Shades Blinds to ensure that the goods sold and delivered match in every respect any sample or description shown or sent to you, change in colour or pattern between the sample or description and the goods delivered shall not entitle you to reject the goods nor to claim any compensation for such variation or change.
