Why should you choose OmniaBlinds?

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 choose IKEAs motorised blinds as it´s the larges size they offer.

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 motorised roller blind is hand made by professionals. It also means that there is a manufacturing process that takes time compared to the pre-made blinds. 

Made to measure motorised blinds makes it possible to perfectly fit the blinds inside the window frame and keep the light out without any glitch. The downside is that you need to wait 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.
