Custom-made, countryside artwork blinds, hanging in a kitchen

DESIGN THE PERFECT BESPOKE BLINDS FOR YOUR COUNTRY STYLE HOME

Born in the heart of the beautiful English Lake District, our bespoke blinds feature scenes from our beautiful countryside and the animals that inhabit it, designed to your specification and made to measure for your windows.

HOW IT WORKS

THE COUNTRYMAN JOHN SYSTEM

The Countryman John system is built around a simple idea -  that you should be able to design bespoke, country-themed blinds that are made especially to fit the windows of your home.

The process is simple too. Simply select your favourite pieces of artwork from our Art Gallery and let us know how you’d like them set out, along with any other specifications you'd like for your blinds including the size of your window recess.

We’ll put together a design to your specification and send it to you for approval. When you’re happy with your custom design, we’ll set up your order for custom blinds and ship them directly to your home.

STEP ONE - CREATE A COMPOSITION

CHOOSE FROM OVER 100 PIECES OF BEAUTIFUL COUNTRYSIDE ART

The Countryman John System offers a unique approach to designing bespoke country-themed blinds. The Countryman John Art Gallery features scenes from the beautiful British countryside and the animals that inhabit it, all drawn by local Lakeland artists.

Simply select your favourite artwork and motifs from our Art Gallery and note them down on your enquiry form. Using your artwork and layout guidance, we'll create a bespoke country scene especially for you, which suits your home and personal taste.

Each piece of artwork in the Art Gallery has a unique reference code. Use these reference codes when submitting an enquiry form to identify which artwork you require, along with direction on placement.

If you would prefer for us to design something for you, you can simply request a theme such as ‘Riverside’ or ‘Pheasants’ and we’ll create something special for you to review.

Prices are based on blind width, drop and mechanism so you can select any number of motifs for your design at no extra charge.

STEP THREE - MEASURE FOR YOUR BLINDS

When ordering your bespoke country-themed blinds, you'll need to let us know the dimensions of your window and door recesses. You can choose to mount your blinds inside or outside of your window recess.

Please note that we require the full dimension of the recess the blind will be fitted to and not the material size.

OPTION 1 - FIT INSIDE WINDOW RECESS

The most popular method of mounting blinds is within the window recess.

1. Measure WIDTH ‘A’ between the two walls at each side of the window. Measure the top and bottom of the recess and use the narrowest measurement.

2. Measure DEPTH ‘B’ between the wall above window and top of windowsill. Measure the left and right sides of the recess and use the narrowest measurement.

OPTION 2 - FIT OUTSIDE WINDOW RECESS

1. Measure WIDTH ‘C’. Remember to allow for overlap each side of the recess. A minimum of 3 inches (7.5 cm) overall is our recommendation.

2. Measure DEPTH ‘D’. Remember to allow for overlap at top and bottom of recess. Just add 5 inches to depth of window.

STEP FOUR - SUBMIT AN ENQUIRY FORM
