-Features to your specification such as controls on the side of your choosing, motorisation, colour coordinated brackets & more
-guaranteed quality and fit.

What are the different types of custom made patio blinds available at Spotlight?
Currently, Spotlight can provide external awnings and shutters in a range of different materials. Choose from automatic awnings, fixed guide awnings, side channel awnings and straight drop awnings to suit your location and requirements.
Adding an awning to your home is a great idea. Awnings can be installed above doors, windows, patios, or decks. They can help to increase energy efficiency by reducing direct sunlight and glare, especially when installed over windows. When used above your patio, deck or balcony, awnings help to protect outdoor furniture against harsh sunlight and will make it possible for you to enjoy more of your outside spaces by shielding you from the sun as well as from light rain.
Spotlight also offers a range of shutters suitable for exterior use, including aluminium shutters, and coming soon in 2018 Zip Trak Blinds will be available at selected stores.

You are, however, able to view the various types of blinds as well as the large range of colours and designs online, and if you are not confident about taking your own measurements, Spotlight offer a free in home measure and quote service.

What do you need to know when ordering custom made timber venetian blinds?
When ordering custom made venetian blinds, you will have a choice of colours and textures to match your interior. But as well as choosing your preferred colour, you usually also get an option of different slat widths. Smaller (narrower) slats will allow you to block out more light when the blinds are in the open position, so providing more privacy. They can also look better with small or unevenly shaped windows. You may also want to consider on which side of the window you would like to have the controls (usually a cord or wand) so they are easy to reach.
What features are available for custom made blinds?
Features of custom made blinds will depend on the type of blind you choose. Different types of blinds will suit different window and door situations; for instance, you may prefer to have a simple roller blind in a bathroom or kitchen, more elaborate style Roman blinds on your landing or stair window, timber venetian blinds to grace your dining room, and vertical blinds to provide protection for your furnishings in front of you garden windows or patio doors. Our sales staff will be able to advise you on the various options that are suitable, while on the website you will see the various features and benefits listed for every type of blind.
What different fabrics and colours do cheap custom made blinds come in?
Due to the fact that custom made blinds are one-off products made exactly to your specifications, they will hardly ever be as cheap as ready-made varieties. However, the cost of blinds will depend on various factors including the amount of fabric needed, the price per metre of the material, the number of hours involved in the manufacture, and extras you may decide on such as fixings, pelmets, motorisation and more.
