Poor design of pulley cord as it sits behind the blind and is therefore not easily operated. But overall the blind is nice.

The cord is useless !!

Pros

  • Attractive Design

  • Difficult To Operate

Best Uses

    To lower the blind, you have to pull the cord to the left, as the cord is on the right hand side, this means you have to have your hand behind the blind! Not a good design!

          A good product that is part of an extensive range in the same pattern.

          Service and delivery comments:

          We had to order from a store 25 miles away, as it was not available on line or at our local store. We were advised to reserve and collect as inter store deliveries can take up to 8 weeks, which i regard as hopelessly inefficient and unacceptable. That being said, the customer services assistant could not have been more helpful and sent a voucher for in store purchase to covert petrol costs...i cannot fault that. The voucher arrived very promptly, and the blind available straight away, again I cannot fault that. However the inter store exchange arrangements fall way below the standard of those i have encountered, except perhaps for those shops that do not offer it at all...that was the only thing that spoiled what could have been excellent service.

            I bought this roman blind to go along with curtains of the same design. I followed instructions which were quite difficult to understand and had to go back to the store to ask how this blind attached to the fittings. I was shown and came away full of confidence that I could put this up. This I did but .... when I pulled the cords the whole blind came tumbling down. I rang the store again and spoke to the same assistant who showed me how to fix it and was told that it was probably faulty and to take it back to exchange or have a refund. I decided to have a refund and have curtains instead to match the ones I already have. I would NOT recommend this product. On the plus side I cannot praise Dunelm staff enough for their good customer service and will continue to use your company.

            The product was bought to control bright sunshine when dining. This is perfect for that. Would have liked a choice of right or left blind pulls so it would be easier to operate and we would not have a pull in the middle of the window (bought two blinds to have individual control).

              Used in a study at the front of the house to achieve privacy when the room light is on.
              More practical than curtains.
              Control chord behind the blind makes it difficult to drop the last quarter.
              Blind does not fold evenly on raising. Needs more fiddling with the chords with no guarantee of success.

                As other reviews see pin holes through blind but not too much of a problem.
                Blind does not pull up very evenly .
                Blackout lining makes blind heavy and to attach to wall 3 brackets supplied but for the 5 foot length I had to purchase 2 more to make the blind feel secure.
                Header rail bent on unpacking- still useable but not good quality control- to return would mean a 25 mile round trip.

                  The product is much better than I expected for the price I paid and very easy to put up. Really pleased with them, the colour and quality are lovely - would definitely buy curtains and blinds from Dunhelm again.

                  Badly made

                    The material was of a really nice quality but the pattern was the wrong way for both blinds I bought. One was 90 degrees anticlockwise and one was 90 degrees clockwise!

                    The bars came out of their pockets and so the pull cords got caught in them.

                    The pull cords are behind the blind and very difficult to reach. You have to pull the blinds up and out manually to reach the pull cords - very frustrating.

                    They weren't made straight and looked bad once they were pulled up.

                    Sad, because they had the potential to be really stylish, quality blind. I am a complete novice but made a blind for my daughters bedroom and it was incredibly difficult. However these are professionally made and don't come anywhere near the one I made.

                    I also have lots of holes now where the brackets used to be - so not best pleased that I had to take them down. Dunelm did give me a full refund and collected the blinds though.

                    Gorgeous and good quality fabric, blackout really does blackout. Easy to install. Unlike a previous review there are no pinholes of light coming through so they should consider returning as perhaps they are unlucky and have a faulty item. The only fault I is when you close it, it doesn't gather neatly you have to faff a bit to make it 'pretty' and it's very difficult to pull down at night the cord is set in a few inches so hard to get to and only comes down a little at a time which is a real shame. Having previous experience of Roman blinds though I suspect this is just a widespread design fault.

                    I bought this blind for my main bedroom to complement an existing colour scheme. As a big fan of natural fabrics and subtle colours t was exactly what I was looking for.

                    Blind is very well made (though I would echo other reviews with the mild annoyance at having to reach behind the blind to pull the cord) and lovely thick material, but the fixings are very fiddly and not of great quality. It's fine to install but I had to use my own screws as my screwdriver ate the poor ones provided in no time and one of the fixings bent whilst I was clipping the blind into it. It would be much easier just to have hinged end pieces into which to slot and click the top rail as all my other blinds have done. As a reference this took about 20 minutes of fiddling, moved on to another room and blind after - up in five.

                    That said - LOVE IT!

                      The rating of two stars is purely for the quality of the material which features a pretty design and good quality black out lining. However, the construction of the blind is very poor; when creating pockets for the mechanism to go, the pockets were not sewn in a straight line making the overall look of the blind incredibly wonky and not horizontal (how the blind should hang). Also, it seems as though the blind has been sewn with a very blunt needle as when in darkness, you can see the light streaming through these holes where the needle has not glided though easily. I would not recommend to anyone interested in buying a quality constructed blind as this is not what you will be buying. I am extremely disappointed in the poor quality of this product to which I will never be purchasing any more products from this retailer again.

                        As soon as I saw a it i wanted this blind for my spare room.
                        I booked it online and collected in store.
                        Was really surprised at how dark the background is, it looks a whole lot paler online.
                        I still wanted it though despite being slightly disappointed in the background colour.
                        It looks lovely in the room which is being done up just now so I can't say whether the blackout works well or not yet.
