We aren’t tied to one specific product so can offer non biased advice – our free interior design service can provide you with information to help you reach a resolution. We take time to establish what you like, and what you don’t, what is important to you and what doesn’t matter so much. We take into account the timeframe and the budget.

With the sun rising between 6.30 and 7 each morning it starts to get light around 4.30am. That is great if you are an early riser but for most of us that is a little too early!!blackout blind, velux blackout blind, Manchester

Depending on which way your bedroom faces being woken by light streaming into your room can cut hours off your valuable recharging time!

Those of us with babies and small children who have been woken by the sun streaming into their rooms are familiar with the early morning cartoons on the TV but wouldn’t you prefer to have an extra hour or two sleeping instead!
