Family pulls together to build business

Posted 22nd February 2021

After 20 years of servicing Northamptonshire homes First4Blinds are now expanding into Milton Keynes.  

After 20 years of servicing only Northamptonshire homes with their quality installations of blinds, curtains, and shutters, First4Blinds are now premiering their services across the county border and expanding into Milton Keynes. The close-knit team built of family and friends has grown from strength to strength in the last 12 months despite the pandemic, and the year ahead is going to be no different.  

During the intermittent lockdown periods, First4Blinds made sure to rally their strength as a team together and ensured to keep business going as safely and efficiently as possible for their customers and team. Even when the Kingsley showroom had to take periods of closure to the public and appointments, video calling saved the day providing a great solution to consult with customers over Zoom.

With the exciting venture of a new county and a growing team, it makes for a positive outlook for the year ahead. For new customers in Milton Keynes and existing or new Northamptonshire customers, nothing will change with the portfolio of services and products First4Blinds offer. For all customers across the NN and MK postcodes, appointments and quotations will remain free-of-charge for all made-to-measure window dressings.

Since First4Blinds first opened their doors to customers, the importance of family values and quality of workmanship have been the cornerstone of maintaining their exemplary reputation for made-to -measure blinds, curtains, and shutters. Beverley and Allen feel that being a family business has undoubtedly helped the business to succeed and become a retailer of choice amongst their customers.

Speaking of family, Beverley and Allen are not the only couple amongst the team. Office manager, Natalie, and senior fitter, Barry, are married and next-door neighbours of Beverley and Allen. Together the four of them work alongside four further team members who are friends as good as family – curtain seamstress Belinda, showroom coordinator Kate, and two experienced fitters who would you believe are both called Garry!

With the success of the team working together throughout a challenging previous year, First4Blinds have launched a new sister website exclusively tailored to their made-to-measure wooden shutters. is an informative site showcasing the available ranges and styles with a handy quick quotation tool to give immediate estimated quotes. 

As well as shutters, just like the name suggests, First4Blinds are specialists in made-to-measure roman, venetian, roller, and vertical blinds from manufacturers such as Style Studio, Timberlux, Louvolite, and Intu. Customisable options include motorisation, remote control, and integration with smart home systems to bring your windows into the 21st century.

There are exciting plans for the year ahead and the First4Blinds team are looking forward to meeting you and to deliver their very highly Checkatrade rated services in both Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes homes.
