Hi all :c)...our kitchen is facing a walkway and we would like to install Top Down blinds
(see link for what exactly those are) and cannot find anyone selling them. Any ideas?

Do you mean bottom-up blinds, i.e. ones that roll up from the bottom, rather than down from the top? If so, seach google for "bottom up" or "roll up" blinds and you'll find loads of suppliers.



Edited to say I just studied the pic in more detail, and those seem to be top down and bottom up - how posh is that? I've never seen those before.... Still a quick Google did come up with some suppliers - good luck with your search.

so, you have to lower them to see out, or raise them??

no idea where you can get them - silly question - Have you tried B&Q?

If you find out I'd love to know where you get them - I have exactly the same problem - what a brilliant idea!

The fantastic quality, but expensive (at least they were when I last costed them) Eclectics do both bottom-up roller blinds and what they call "50:50", which is opaque material at the bottom and mesh at the top.

They don't do bottom-up venetians (Ivanhoe / JonR - not a single comment please !):

I have found http://www.networkblinds.com and am very happy with the blinds they sold me. I also had a quote from eclectics, but must say that they were very expensive compared to networkblinds. com.

Wow excellent response, thanks everyone. I've had a look at the eclectics and networkblinds sites and will send them an e-mail for a quote and see what I come up with. Maurits, roughly how much (if you don't mind my asking) did one set of top-down/bottom-up blinds cost? I know it will vary depending on the window dimensions, but just curious how much. Thanks!

Some of our forum friends have been in my flat this summer, so they know what I am talking about. I have paid 780 for the entire flat, whereas Eclectics quoted 3500 for nearly the same job. Though their product is of better quality, it is certainly not superior.

Networkblinds people were very friendly and the price included installing and measuring.

Wow - that's a good price. I bought a venetian blind from John Lewis measuring 2.9 m wide by 3m deep, and that cost 280, including measuring and fitting. At the time, I thought that was very good value. Now I see it wasn't!
