How Accurate are the Fabricts and Colours?
All fabrics and colours shown here are for reference purposes only. We try to match the fabric and colours to be as close as possible to real life, however due to varying individual screen settings, these results may differ. The best recommendation we can make is to order free samples before making a purchase. Please however also note that there may be minor variations between batches of fabric and samples. AQBO reserves the right to update the fabric selection at any time, to improve the customer designing process, and provide more accurate results.

How to clean you blinds?
Normal everyday dusting will remove any dust collected on the blinds. All of our Fabric Ranges which are made using Polyester + Acrylic will have anti-static properties for repelling dust.
To remove any larger dirt spots, its recommended to use a damp cloth, or hand vacumn cleaner with the proper attachment. Do not use bleach or any other detergent, as this may stain the blinds.
Most Blinds should be cleaned ideally once a month to maintain their new-blind presentation.

Should I install the blind INSIDE or OUTSIDE the window frame?
Most blinds can be installed INSIDE the window frame, so they take up less space and look flush even with the window. If there is something in the way (such as a mullion) then it may be better to install on the face of the window, to avoid the blind contact with obstacles. All face fitted blinds should be made slightly longer to allow for better coverage and privacy.
- Install inside the window frame
- Takes less window space up, as its fitted with the wall
- Recommended to have the blind as as OVER ROLL (i.e. rolling away from the window)
- Installed on the outer frame of the window
- Greater Coverage + More Privacy
- Recommended to have the blind as as UNDER ROLL (i.e. rolling back towards the window).

How to get the longest life out of your blinds?
Blinds are something you buy or refresh every 10 or so years. When buying a high quality product, proper care and maintenance is essential for the longest lasting blinds.
Below are some tips on proper usage of the product.
- Make sure pets or infants do not play with the blindsBlinds are not toys!
- Avoid Excessive Force Blinds are gentle to use and do not need a lot of force.
- Do not keep blinds closed with the windows open The constant breeze will keep the blinds in motion and potentially banging, which can significantly shorten their product life.
- Remember to use your blinds Blinds which are used outlive blinds which aren’t. Remember to operate all blinds from time to time even those which may always be closed or down.
- Avoid Direct contact with water While most fabrics are mould resistant, they do need to keep dry
- Avoid installing blinds and curtains together Unnecessary pressure on the blinds may cause the components to weaken or damage. Avoid installing blinds where there are obstacles or curtains already installed.

- About Bottom Weights
I’m installing INSIDE the window frame (In-REVEAL)
We recommend you choose OVER ROLL. This will make the blind appear flush with the wall. There may be a slight light gap of 10mm between the sides of the fabric and the window frame.
I’m installing INSIDE the window frame (In-REVEAL)
I’m installing on the OUTSIDE of the window (FACE FITTED) We recommend you choose UNDER ROLL. This way the blind rolls backwards towards the window, making it appear flush with the wall. It also minimizes light entering into the room. Please ensure your blind size is slightly wider for face fitted blinds than for inside-reveal blinds. See the measuring section for more tips.
We recommend colour-matching the components as close as possible to your chosen fabric colour. For example, a creamy colour fabric will look nice with a white-birch plastic chain, white-birch brackets, and a white-birch bottom rail. Please call us if you are unsure which colours to choose.
The bottom rail shape is purely a personal choice. Oval bottom rails are predominantly more popular and modern.
