Ratings, Awnings and A Secret Project!



The sun is shining, the birds are singing and the kettle is on - Happy Friday to you all!
Firstly, we would just like to thank everyone who voted for us in the final round of the Muddy Stilettos this year. We appreciate all your love and support through the competition. We were against some stiff competition and was pipped to the post by the lovely Vintage Guru. Next year though maybe... Duffy will be able to still fit her dress I'm sure!


Back to the sunshine now though! Could it be true that we are in store for a two magnificent May Bank Holidays? Barbecues will be sizzling away, cold beers and wine spritzers will be flowing and late evenings spent fighting off the midges round a Chimenea are in store. But have you thought how lush an awning would be out into your garden? Not having to faff about with a parasol, where spiders have moved into the folds over the winter, or weighting down the base to stop it blowing about in the breeze would make those 'get-togethers' on the patio or in the garden so much easier! Especially as we can offer motorisation on the awnings, like we do with our roller blinds. Keep an eye out on social media for upcoming offers on our awnings, we just need a bit of training first to make sure we know what we are doing!


The plans for the big shop re-fit is surging ahead. We have some gorgeous display lengths of fabrics coming from a range of our designers. Not only are they going to look divine on display, but also to help you make a decision when looking for new blinds or curtains. We are so fortunate to have an amazing library of books, but it's hard to show everything off. This re-fit is getting us all so excited for you to be able to have an even better and luxurious experience with us.


Our Checkatrade is knocking it out of the park, receiving a cracking two ratings of 10/10 on both occasions. This puts us onto a 9.97/10 overall, placing us top of the Checkatrade list. We are incredibly proud of our Checkatrade rating and we have received consistent 9's and 10's throughout all reviews. Our team really pride themselves on the service we offer to you, right from first contact all the way through to the finished and fitted product. Thank you to our customers who have submitted a review on Checkatrade.



Finally, we have a secret project that we have been working on. We can't tell you about it because, well... That would be telling. But you are going to L.O.V.E it when we unveil what we have been up to. But we want to have it all finished before we show it off. So, be ready for some serious excitement and popping of champagne corks in a couple of months time.

Enjoy your weekend and soak up those rays,
The Team at First4Blinds x
