Please browse through our frequently asked questions.

How do you measure for Temporary Blinds?

If the blinds are covering the whole recess, then measure the width and drop of the recess in 3 places and choose the size that is larger.

If you are covering each glass pane, then measure the width and drop of the glass and select the size that is larger. Remember - as they are formed from paper, one blind can be cut to cover more than one pane of glass.

What colour temporary blinds do you stock?

We stock Instershades in Blackout, White, Grey, Cream, Cafe and Chocolate.

The Blackout and White Temporary Blinds are also available in a larger size.

Neutral colours are typically most popular, with grey being our best-seller.

What screw should I use to hang a blind?

Ideal screw type depends on the blind and how its being fixed.

If fixing a roller blind back to a UPVC or Wooden window frame, then use a 12mm x no8 self tapping screw. Ensure you pilot first to ensure that the screw does not run to one side when tightened.

For fixing with a rawl plug, use a good quality No 4 x 40mm wood screw. You can use 30mm with some rawl plugs, but check their specification first.

If its a damp area, then you may wish to consider a stainless steel screw to prevent corrosion. However, please take care as these are more brittle than a normal screw.

Which are the best blinds for Child Safety?

Several children die every year in the UK due to cords and chains on Blinds.

You can fix safety devices such as cleats or a chain tensioner to improve safety, however the best option is to avoid the situation all together.

Wand operated Vertical blinds have no dangerous chains or cords and are operated by moving the wand to the side, making it a much safer option.

All of our Vertical blinds also come with chainless vertical weights that again remove the chains from the bottom of the blind where they are vulnerable.

How do you fix Roller Blinds in a bend such as a Bay Window?

Roller Blinds are not the first choice for splay Bay Window, but can be a good choice for Square Bays and Conservatories.

When measuring you must remember that the blinds cannot over-lap or be bent.

One Roller Blind will extend into the corner of the bend, and the width of the other is shortened by the depth of the bracket.

You can find the depth of our brackets on the Bay Window measuring instructions.

Do think carefully which blind you wish to be shorter, as it can make a difference to the shading and privacy provided.

Are Temporary Blinds suitable for Skylight Windows?

Temporary Blinds are NOT suitable for Skylight Windows, as they are only designed to be hung Vertically within 10 degrees

How do I measure for a new blind?

Firstly, use a metric measuring tape and record all of the measurements in mm; this is because they are more accurate to communicate.

Measure the width in 3 places - top, middle and bottom. If there are any narrow points in the recess then ensure that is one of the points measured.

Measure the drop in 3 places - left, middle and right.

Now enter the smallest width and the shortest drop into the measurement options on our website and select recess size.

That's it! The manufacturer will make the industry standard adjustments to make your blind.

Why choose vertical blinds with Chainless Bottom weight?

Vertical blinds have traditionally been provided with a weight in the bottom of the slat with a clip on each side for a stabilizing chain.

Unfortunately these tend to be the most venerable part of the blind, with the chains or clips on the weighs being broken by chairs, children, and pets.

We provide all of our Vertical blinds with a fully stitched bottom pocket and a heavier chainless weight design. This improves the overall robustness of the blind, and lengthens it's expected lifespan.

The look of the chainless weights is much cleaner and gives a great look that makes a highly noticeable improvement on dark fabrics particularly.

How do you fit Intershade temporary blinds?


  • Measure the recess or glass pane at its narrowest point.
  • Cut the paper shades to the correct width using a pair of scissors or a sharp knife to.
  • Peel off the backing to the adhesive strip.
  • Stick the blind in place.


How much would you add on each side of a Blind when fixing outside the recess?

Roman Blinds:
When Measuring for Roman Blinds, we typically recommend adding 150mm to the Recess drop, so that the fabric is just below the the Recess when the Blind is raised. For the sides, we recommend adding 50mm (if there is room) to each side of the recess width. This way, the blind can then be aligned to the sill. These Measurements would be ordered “Actual Size”.

Roller Blinds:
With Roller Blinds we recommend that you add 100mm to the Recess drop and 50mm to each side of the Recess Width. However, please remember to order the Roller “Fabric Size”. The Brackets and the controls of the Roller will protrude by around 18mm past the fabric on each side, so please also ensure that you have enough clearance.
