Made-to-measure blinds – supplied & fitted in Nottingham, Derby & beyond

Blinds come in all shapes, styles and colours, to suit all budgets and tastes. Cox’s offer a free home measuring and advice service. We also offer a full fitting service.

How our blinds home selection process works

We will make an appointment with you either on the phone or in person in the showroom, during which we will ask you about what blinds you were thinking of. When our staff arrive, they will bring in samples for you to look at whilst they measure the window and discuss which blinds would be most suitable. 

They will usually be able to provide you with a quotation on site, or will ring in the following few days for the more complicated jobs. We are a small family firm and don’t believe in the “hard sell” approach, so if you are happy to give us the go-ahead we will take your order there and then but if you would like a few days to decide that is equally fine.

Vertical Blinds

Vertical blinds are the most versatile of blinds. Once only found in offices, the new fabrics now bring pattern and colour to the options available. They are most useful over large, long spaces such as patio or French doors where they can be fully closed at night then opened throughout the day to let in the light. They also give shade against the full glare of the sun, or can be pulled back to clear the way when the doors are open. Vertical blinds can be used as an alternative to traditional net curtains, giving privacy when tilted but also letting in the light. Vertical blinds also come in blackout fabric, making them perfect for bedrooms.

Metal Venetian Blinds

Metal Venetian blinds are a traditional window treatment. They now come in hundreds of colours and finishes, from wood look to mirrored silver and all slat sizes from 16mm to 50mm. Venetian blinds are great on windows where there isn’t much windowsill, giving an uncluttered look, angled in the day to let in light but give privacy. 

Venetian blinds can be given an individual look with your choice of alternate slats and spacing. They can also come without holes, giving total privacy.

Roller Blinds

Roller blinds have grown up! Now in a wide variety of fabrics, from plain and functional to shot silk black out and even flock finish. They come as a standard roll, with an open cassette just covering the roll, or a closed cassette with a matching or contrasting trim. You can bring whichever colour you want out of the main pattern by adding a coloured bottom bar. 

Also very popular are sheer rollers as an alternative to net curtains. These are useful for taking the reflection off a window at night, which in the day has a great view.

Wooden Venetian Blinds

Wooden Venetian blinds are currently our most popular blind, although they have a more limited number of colours than the metal Venetian. The introduction of the painted look has expanded the range, available with a matching or contrasting tape. The wooden Venetian blind gives a softer look to the window and tends to have a bigger slat size, allowing more light into the room, but still breaking up the view from the outside. They are a good alternative to wooden shutters. We recommend tapes, if using in bedrooms without curtains, as this helps to cover the string holes.

As wood is a natural product, which is part of its beauty, this can cause problems in moist or very hot conditions. An alternative is our Wood Expression Range – a plastic wood-look blind, which does a very close impression of the real thing, and is slightly better on price too. This is also available with tapes.

Vision Blinds

Vision blinds are some of the newest blinds available. They are a cross between a roller blind and a Venetian blind, giving us the best of both.

Vision blinds come in a range of metallic or natural woven finishes, with a sheer strip in between, allowing complete control over privacy or light levels, or being pulled up completely out of the way until needed.

Perfect Fit Blinds

Perfect Fit Blinds eliminate the need to drill into UPVC window frames. The blind and frame fit to the window or door, available in metal Venetian, pleated and roller blinds. Perfect fit blinds allow the blind to move with the window or door – ideal for French doors and conservatories. The frame cuts out the light escaping around the edges and the damage caused by a blind rattling in the wind.

Cox’s have fitted perfect fit blinds all over the Derby and Nottingham area. They are a very popular solution for families with conservatories, leaving windowsills free for plants and toys. Great for Juliet balconies – giving privacy but allowing the vision out.
