would give you a starting point; from here you would have
either found your ideal outlet or gathered enough information
to be clearer on what you are looking for. With a resource
like the Internet, it opens up a vast selection of outlets
that may include ones from outside of the UK.
of these online outlets are also prepared to send you samples
of materials so that it is easier for you to visualise. Being
able to speak with someone who is knowledgeable on the subject
also be an advantage as they would be able to reflect on what
works and draw on their expertise.
In conclusion, write down a list, start ringing each store
and write down the price and also ask if there are any hidden
costs, this is worth keeping particularly in mind when looking
online. So the more preparation you do for your blinds, the
better the odds will be in getting it right first time around.
