As the region’s longest established custom blinds specialists we have built up a large client base of repeat customers. Below as just a few testimonials from our long list of very happy clients.

I found Shades and Shutters when looking for local Somfy or Louvelite retailers, and from my very initial call to them, the whole process was a complete joy. My expectations were exceeded over and over again! Mark took a significant amount of time to talk me through all of their products, he was patient and helpful when measuring up, and Sarah was so knowledgeable and thoughtful when I was debating over which products to actually settle on. The installation was seamless – Stephen worked incredibly fast, left no mess and did everything perfectly (despite my four year old following him round and chattering away to him non stop). The price and quality of their products are astounding; we’re truly over the moon with our purchases. I cannot recommend this company highly enough – by far the best in their field (I say that with confidence as I’ve experienced various window covering companies previously – including the well known nationwide franchises who haven’t been anywhere near as good as Shades and Shutters)!

Thank you so much to the whole team there.

Just to say how pleased I am with the roof blind. It makes a huge difference to the heat. My sincere thanks to you, Mark and the team. All very friendly and professional.


I just wanted to thank you for organising my blinds – I am absolutely thrilled with them, it’s all coming together now. Have a good weekend and thanks again.


Very many thanks for arranging for Stephen and the young lady to call just after lunch to-day to fit our kitchen door blind. Fantastic and speedy service and very much appreciated. As always, we will be delighted to recommend your company to anyone we know who may require your services in the future. Wishing you an enjoyable Bank Holiday weekend.

Hi Sarah, Only been in a couple of days and we love it. The team were very professional and installed the shutter , I thought, perfectly. Will sort out the balance this evening …and thank you!

Just say thank you for your service engineers attending today. They were both polite and professional and the job was completed in a satisfactory manner. Hopefully there will not be a re-occurrence, however, I will not hesitate to contact you as required in the future.

We have been customers of Shades and Shutters for about 16 years and have seen the company pass from father to son.  We have had a selection of Luxaflex blinds which are superb and have always found this company to be friendly and efficient.  0ur blinds are still going strong 16 years down the line and although they were a luxury product so relatively expensive they still look amazing.

Dear Sarah, A brief note to thank you and your team for the extremely efficient and effective installation of blinds in our offices. The response was rapid in terms of one of your installers coming to measure up and the subsequent supply of a quotation. Having agreed to the latter, the fabrication of a man-made blind was also faster than anticipated and your installer did a very good job and was most personable. I would be happy to recommend your services to any potential customers.


Douro, Cheltenham

Hi Sarah. Just a quick note to say that we have always enjoyed working with shades and shutters . The workmen have always worked quietly and efficiently, leaving the premises clean and tidy. Where there have been problems with the blinds these have been rectified without any deliberation. We look forward to dealing with you in the future.
