All our windows are now fitted ... so we are living in a glass cube ... well, almost.

We now urgently need blinds for privacy.

What would be the best (low cost!) blinds to use?

Would thermal blinds add to the triple glazing performance?

If you have access to a sewing machine and someone that sews a trip to the local fabric shop should net you a suitable material that will serve. I try not to get between the management of the household and her plan on such issues. Wink

I do all the sewing repairs in my house on the Rolls Royce of Sewing machines. A Singer 201.



Mine's got a motor attachment if I want to use it as well.

Not that I'm bragging.....Smile
