1. Replace broken pull ends
Broken cord ends really make a blind look tatty. For a minimal charge you can ask your supplier for one or two extra wooden cord pull ends when you order. This way they will be made from the same batch of wood as your blinds and then you can replace them if they break over time
2. Replace any broken slats
If any of your slats break and you have had your Wooden Venetian blinds made to measure, your supplier should be able to replace the broken slats for a nominal fee.
3. Keep dust free and clean regularly
Straight forward advice but really need to keep Wooden Venetians dust free as dust really shows up on certain shades of Wood. Feather duster, Betterware’s Microfibre Cleaner or a clean household duster will do the trick.
4. If your blinds are for a bay window – stain the ends
Most made to measure companies will automatically have the ends of Wooden Venetians stained, especially for a bay, so when ordering always confirm the ends of the slats will be stained. If you already have blinds in a bay that do not have stained slats ends, simply pop down to you local hardware store and get a matching stain. Alternatively speak to your supplier and ask if they have the stain. It is a very small attention to detail but make a massive difference to the look of your blinds in your bay window.
