Oakhurst is a pioneer and leading designer in the development of products specifically created for the complex shapes and angles found within conservatories and the more recent emerging designs of lantern, orangery, glass extension or gable-end windows. Our 25 years, plus of experience has led us to conclude that pleated or honeycomb fabrics are the most suitable for conservatories. However, the manufacturing process is complex and labour intensive. Each conservatory has different shapes and dimensions requiring bespoke, hand-made products that cannot be made by an automated manufacturing process. This means that there are no cheap solutions.
As true specialists, we cater for conservatories and other structures that present challenging designs, most of which were never designed to have blinds fitted to them. We provide solutions and enhanced design detail that many of our competitors do not offer.

- We do not simplify or cheapen products to satisfy a sales strategy or a corporate profit strategy. Our starting point is to ensure our products are fit for purpose. We would rather over-engineer than risk failures and call-backs. This is to your advantage as well as ours.

When choosing blinds there is more than just price to consider – you need a product that delivers and exceeds expectations. Choosing conservatory blinds can be a labyrinthine process, but we hope that this article will assist you in navigating your way to the right choice.
