Olympic Blinds & Shutters are a family business based in Rathcoole, County Dublin. John and Cathy offer the ultimate level of service from the survey, measure and quotation to the supply and installation of internal window blinds, plantation shutters, curtains, tracks and curtain poles in residential and commercial areas.
They provide a very convenient service to enable their customers to make selections by viewing the fabrics in the comfort of their own home or workplace.
Cathy and John pride themselves on precision and the ability to deliver top quality goods and service to fulfil high expectations within the very quick lead times they specify.
“We do any type of blind that is on the market so we cover from the very tricky projects to the very straight forward stuff to everything in between.
We offer cheap and cheerful roller blinds up to the premium style shutters which means we have something to suit all budgets,” said Cathy who has 25 years experience working within this industry.
“The electrolisation of blinds have increased massively and it is becoming very popular with customers.
A lot of people are veering towards this option and most of the electric blinds that we stock now come with a wireless motor which is a motor that charges like a mobile phone and they only need to be charged a few times a year.
It is all coming down to convenience now so the home owner can ask Alexa to open and close their blinds when they are on holidays etc also.
As to styles/ patterns that are proving popular currently?
“We’re getting less of a request for greys than we were before as people are going back to more neutral colours such as soft white, blush and navy,” continued Cathy.
In terms of advice she would offer customers in advance of purchasing blinds?
“A lot of people are continuing to purchase the manual blinds, in years to come the chains are going to become eliminated and motorisation will become a requirement by way of child safety and it is good to look at motorisation from that perspective,” she added.
