Most frequently asked questions (FAQ’s)

We can only look at repairing blinds which are ours. That is, we do not repair blinds made or sold by any other company. In some cases, it is often a more cost-effective option to get new blinds. You may bring the blinds into your nearest showroom, or we can come out to visit you.

Yes, we do sell Security Doors and Curtains but we don't sell Flyscreens.

There is no such thing. Windows come in a huge range of sizes. We must have accurate measurements to start with.

Everything we make is made to measure to the millimetre so it is difficult to give you a “square metre rate” or “piece rate”. The main determinants of price are fabric and textile finishes and these are grouped from lowest to highest, so a “group 1″ material will be the cheapest. Our design consultant can give you an exact costing in your home or you can get an approximation at our showrooms.

Once you make an appointment for a sales agent to come and give a free in home consultation you will be offered the next available day. The sales agent should then contact you the evening before or the morning of the appointment to confirm a time with you.

Each product has a different lead-time however we try and coordinate all products in to one convenient delivery. In some situations it may be desirable for you to split the order so as to obtain some products ahead of others.

Remember to have any existing window coverings down prior to the installation of your new blinds (unless alternative arrangements have been made).
Although blinds have various uses within the home, there is one primary function that stands out above all the others and is the main reason why we need to purchase blinds: for privacy.

Once everything is ready, fitting the blinds is fairly quick. Times may vary from job to job but as an average, Blind 1 will generally take 20 – 30 minutes including bringing everything in. Every blind after that will take 10 -15 minutes.
Generally speaking, lighter blinds are preferred in the living areas of the home – the living room, dining room and kitchen. The reason, primarily, is that plenty of light is needed in these areas. Also, it’s unlikely that you’ll be sleeping in these rooms so there’s no need to block light. If you prefer to create a light, bright area, it’s always advised to choose white, cream or light colours for your window coverings. This does not only allow for more light to enter the room, but it also creates a softer, lighter overall look and feel.

Day Night blinds are the ideal product that allows you to enjoy the best of both worlds: a clear view during the day and complete privacy at night. These innovative blinds, also known as day night blinds, provide a practical and stylish solution for light control and privacy in any room. With their unique design and dual functionality, they offer the perfect balance between functionality and aesthetics. Let's explore why day night blinds are the ultimate choice for achieving daytime views and nighttime privacy:

Daytime Views:

During the day, you can fully appreciate the beauty of your surroundings with day night blinds. The sheer fabric layer of these blinds allows natural light to filter through while preserving your view outside. This layer gently diffuses sunlight, creating a soft and inviting ambiance in your space. You can enjoy the warmth of the sun's rays, connect with nature, and take in the panoramic vistas without compromising your privacy.

Nighttime Privacy:

As daylight fades and darkness falls, privacy becomes a priority. Day Night blinds provide the perfect solution for maintaining privacy in the evenings. By adjusting the blinds, you can align the opaque fabric layer, blocking the view from outside and ensuring complete seclusion within your home. Whether you're spending quality time with family, relaxing after a long day, or enjoying a peaceful night's sleep, day night blinds offer the privacy and tranquility you desire.


Versatile Light Control:

One of the key advantages of day night blinds is their versatile light control capabilities. You have complete control over the amount of light entering your space at any time. By adjusting the position of the blinds, you can achieve different levels of light filtration and create the desired ambiance. Whether you want to bask in the warm glow of the sun or create a cozy atmosphere, day night blinds allow you to effortlessly regulate the light to suit your preferences.

Stylish and Practical Design:

Day Night blinds come in a variety of colors, patterns, and textures, allowing you to choose a style that complements your interior decor. Whether you prefer a modern and minimalist look or a more traditional aesthetic, there are options available to match your taste and enhance the overall visual appeal of your space. The combination of functionality and style makes day night blinds a practical and elegant choice for any room in your home.

Easy Operation and Maintenance:

Operating day night blinds is simple and convenient. They can be easily adjusted using a chain drive, cordless system, or motorized operation for added ease and accessibility. Motorized day night blinds offer the highest level of convenience, allowing you to control the blinds with the touch of a button or through home automation systems. Additionally, day night blinds require minimal maintenance and can be easily cleaned with regular dusting or gentle vacuuming, keeping them looking fresh and new for years to come. Our double roller blinds are often referred to as day/night blinds. Control of each Blind is separate so you can enjoy your window views and soft diffused light during the day and have complete privacy and darkness at night.
Our warranties do vary depending on the product, please see our T and C's and our product brochures for more information
The simple answer is no, not by day. During the day when the light is greater outside, you have a very clear vision but no one can see in. This effect is reversed by night.

All our blinds and shutters are 100% made to measure and NOT cut downs.

Roller Shutters are a fantastic way of cutting back the amount you spend on heating and cooling your home or business! The physical barrier of a Roller Shutter permits less heat to pass through, compared to a fabric blind or curtain. Installing Roller Shutters in your home or business can also help reduce the amount of heat that enters or escapes in that space.

The price of Roller Shutters will vary between installations. Some of the more important details will be size, type, anchoring method and whether or not you have any special requirements of your Roller Shutters. For a free measure & quote, please reach out to our friendly team at Apollo Blinds.

Roller Shutters are an effective way of blocking out any unwanted noise. When sealed all the way, the physical barrier of a roller shutter can drastically reduce the volume of ambient noise entering your home or business.
