WiSER Interiors

  • Where can we find you?In Leatherhead, Surrey KT22 7UE we have a demonstration suite open 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday. Please arrange an appointment and we will have the kettle on for your arrival. But the best way we can help is for us to find you. If you live in the South-East of England including London, then we have a consultant near you. The home visit is free-of-charge and no obligation to buy. The design consultant will bring ideas, advice, a tape measure, working samples and fabrics for you to choose from in the comfort of your own home.

  • How are you different from other blind suppliers?We are an independent, family-run company with more than 30-years' experience in all types of window shading. We provide a complete service from design advice to installation.We are experts in motorised window and roof blinds. Others may sell motorised blinds, but they are unlikely to have 30-years experience. If you have a difficult glazing area to cover, we should have a solution. And we always like a challenge!

    If you get your blinds from Ikea (or other DIY stores) you will have to cut them to size and fit them yourself. The quality will obviously be reflected by the price, the overall finish will be relatively poor and the lifespan likely to be much less.

    If you get your blinds from John Lewis (or other department stores) the advice from the member of staff in the shop will probably be limited, the delivery slow and the installation an extra cost and outsourced to contractors.

    If you go to Hilary's (or other national direct sales companies) beware the discounts - we only give genuine discounts to reflect volume, location or special offers from manufacturers.As a franchise operation, some of their operators are better than others, but their product range is limited.

    We do not do hard-sell - we would not like to be sold to that way, so do not do it ourselves.

  • How much is an appointment?Our design consultants will find a time convenient for you for your appointment. Early or late if necessary.
  • Do you offer devices for my home to keep blind operating cords out of the reach of children? Yes, we offer a range of easy to install safety devices that your advisor will fit free of charge. These will ensure blind cords are secure and out of the reach of children. We offer these devices to anyone, even if they didn't buy their blinds from us. Always follow the safety advice if you have children in your home, even if it's just for a visit.

    Never place beds, cots or furniture near a window where children can climb on the sill. It is imperative that blind controls are kept out of the reach of children and a safety cleat is fitted. Simply secure the free-hanging cord to the cleat to keep them neatly out of the way.

    There are several options available ask our design consultant about the child safety options available.

Child Safety

  • What are the regulations on child safety?In accordance with the regulation EN13120 cord or chain operated blinds canonlybe installed with a safety breaker and/or retention bracket or cleat to reduce the risk of strangulation to children and vulnerable persons."It's the customer's responsibility to use the safety devices as directed in the product instructions." This has been close to our heart and now with thenew regulation cannotinstall a product that has loose, unrestrained chains and/or cords without safety devices to manage them. Want to know more get in touch or call 01372 285 969.

  • Can your blinds work with Alexa? The simple answer is yes, they do of course need to be motorised blinds! You manage Alexa from the application on your smartphone and enable the appropriate skill to link to the blinds hub. From there you can manage schedules or create the scene and have them activated via your voice "Alexa turn on Movie Night!".

  • Is it possible to connect blinds to our home automation system? Yes, we can configure blinds to work with your home automation system.

When the blinds are ready we will contact you to arrange installation at a time suitable for you (a specific time, not just any point between 8 am to 5 pm!). Payment is upon installation. The timescale depends on the blind type, but we can always respond to urgent enquiries and are usually no longer than six weeks.

  • How long will I have to wait before fitting?Your design consultant will be able to advise you, it really depends on what window dressing you want. Soon after you have placed your order our customer service team will be in touch to arrange your fitting or survey depending on your requirements.
  • What do I need to do before the fitting?Before the fitting, please clear the window area and where possible make sure that any existing blinds or curtains are taken down. If you need help in doing this let your design consultant know when you meet them. When we’ve finished fitting, we’ll take all the packaging and old window dressings away for you too.
  • How long will my fitting take?This depends on the type of order you have made. Your design consultant will be able to advise you. Our customer service team will be able to confirm details to provide a clear indication of the fitting time when your fitting appointment is made.
  • Will my design consultant come back and fit?No, we have a team of trained fitters who will come and fit your window dressing. Where you need a survey, the surveyor will come back and fit your order.

  • How expensive will the blinds be?Each blind is made-to-measure, so the cost depends on the width, drop, type of blind and fabric chosen. The cost can be compared to purchasing bespoke curtains. They are more expensive than ready-made but will have a better finish, and last a lot longer.
