A review of Hillarys and their Blinds

A review of Hillarys and their Blinds

8a944871bed1d4e13054e5100f429479_400x400We were recently approached by Hillarys and were asked if we were interested in having some blinds fitted at our property. And we knew the perfect room – our conservatory!

Whilst our conservatory is not that overlooked, we do have a few bedroom windows looking in at us as we eat. There is also the glare of the sun onto the television in our lounge as well as the heat from the sun that can build up.

The first appointment was all about choosing and measuring. There were plenty of designs and colours to choose from but the selection was very straightforward for us. We chose the vertical Olivia design in beige. In agreement with our fitter, Richard, we decided that the colour complimented the conservatory and did not look too clinical or office-like (something that does concern me a little when it comes to blinds).

From our initial appointment to the fitting, it took just 3 weeks.  When Richard returned, he came armed with the boxes and tools and they were up and done in just under an hour. Very impressive! He was friendly, informative, helpful and efficient.

Richard was also careful to explain how the blinds worked and the safety measures that were in place for any young children – such as the safety hooks to prevent any of the cords causing a choking hazard.

He was careful to remove all the boxes and debris and ensured that I was aware that if we had any issues at all that we were to contact him in order that he may resolve it. I am very pleased to say that we have had nothing to say but positives for their service.

The fitting is professional and tidy and I really like the fact that the awnings and chords match the colour of the windows. The blinds are the perfect colour and pull backwards and forwards easily. They have stopped the glare and made the room cooler (a blessing with the sun now firmly making an appearance). On top of all that it appears to have made the room look bigger!

Take a look at our short video review:

I have to say that I am extremely impressed with what Hillarys have done for us. We are very happy with the product and service and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.

    They look great! Am pleased you are so happy with them and the service. We used Hilarys for our blinds, and whilst they were great at measuring and fitting etc. when we had an issue with one of the door blinds we never managed to get them back out, despite several calls. We dropped it in the end as it wasn’t totally broken but it did put me off as their ‘guarantee’ didn’t feel like one in reality! Thanks for hosting another great #pocolo

      I am so sorry to hear about the experience you had with Hillarys Yvette, that is such a shame. I think it does depend on where you live and which branch you deal with from what I have heard x
