Terms and Conditions

You are required to read and agree to the terms and conditions on this page before completing your online purchase. Note that you are entering an agreement with BestBlinds Limited with every completed order and you understand the shopping process and the products your are purchasing from our website. Please refer to all products details stated on the products page, allowances and delivery times as you are agreeing with them when you complete your order.

Our Products:

We commercialize made to measure products, manufactured according to dimensions provided by you and your product selection, therefore you should pay careful attention when recording the sizes to match your windows and any special framing. You should not deduct anything from the measurements you provide to enable the best fit against the window frame. There are no returns or refunds granted for wrong measurements ordered by the customer, this is because we are unable to resell custom made products and therefore offer repayment.

Despite the use of high precision machines in the manufacturing process, there is a 2 to 5 mm margin of error and we cannot replace blinds found within this margin.

The enlarged pictures of the interior decor are used strictly for illustration purposes. If you want to see a larger image of the sample,please contact us. Our website features only high resolution pictures and we cannot pay you back because of non matching colours, seeing that monitors display settings can vary. If you are looking for a specific colour, we strongly recommend that you order free samples before placing an order.

Colour names are not representation of the product colour.

With light filtering, sunscreen or blackout roller blinds, products supplied may have a longer drop than ordered drop and this, however, does not affect the operation of the blinds as this type of blinds allows any excess drop.

All fabrics used on roller (light filtering or sunscreen) and blackout blinds are cut using Ultrasonic cutting technology however it is normal occurrence from time to time fraying of fabric – when this happens it is important that loose fibres are not pulled, instead cut with sharp scissors. 

We sell 100% natural wood blinds which may suffer colour variations depending on the timber used in the production, even from one batch to the other. As a result, we urge customers to place their order as soon as they receive the samples in the mail. Wooden window coverings should not be installed in humid environment, such as bathrooms as water damaged items will automatically void all warranty.

The wood blinds we feature online are primarily made of basswood and stained to match other wood essences. These can bear different names on our website, as well as in the manufacturer's catalog.

It is important that you are aware of the fact that the blinds industry uses different wood species, as opposed to other industries. For instance, the flooring industry uses real walnut timber when advertising"walnut floors", whereas blinds would be made of basswood or other such timbers, which have been painted or stained to duplicate walnut.

If you wish to match your floor to your blinds, you should procure free samples in the mail before ordering so that you can compare the colours and make the most appropriate decision. In case a blind is manufactured from that actual wood specie, the product will appear with the word"real" in the name, e.g. "real wood".

As some of the products are named differently than the manufacturers, names on the delivery labels may vary, so please match the sample to the received item to ensure that your order is indeed correct.
