1. Pre-made vs made to measure motorised blinds

IKEA manufactures their motorised blinds in volume at pre-set sizes, which means that they can keep the manufacturing cost down. It also means that you can just pick them off the shelf in IKEAs stores. 

Getting pre-made motorised blinds means that you are probably not going to get the perfect fit within your window frame, called inside mount. If you mount the blinds outside the window frame, called outside mount, it will probably work better but it is not as sleek as the inside mount. 

If your window is larger than 140 cm you will unfortunately not be able to go with IKEAs motorised blinds.

Made to measure, for a perfect fit

We manufacture our blinds made to measure, meaning that the customer can fit the motorised blind perfectly within the window frame. Made to measure blinds are more expensive as each one is hand made by professionals. It also means that there is a manufacturing process that takes a few weeks compared to the pre-made blinds.

Getting the exact measurements, made to measure motorised blinds, is of course what you prefer as it will not only look beautiful in the window but it will also allow the blind to do what a blind does best - keep the light out without any glitch. But as previously mentioned it does come with the downside of waiting for the blinds to arrive, they are more expensive and you will not be able to return the product as it is custom made according to your preferences.
