About

As Leicester’s oldest awning and window blind makers we guarantee the highest quality products, and good old fashioned customer service that is second to none

We are the quintessential family business that has evolved from one man with a motorcycle and sidecar, to a professional and modern multi product window blind and awning manufacturer and installer whilst still retaining the values that have been passed down through the generations

We offer a very personalised local service and are very protective of our reputation, always striving to ensure our clients appreciate both our service and the quality of our products

Established in 1887, by Mr E.A Barlow, the company flourished and in 1927 he felt he had earned a more restful time, deciding to retire and pass the business on to someone else’s capable hands

Those capable hands belonged to Frank Coleman, and the company has been successfully run by the Coleman family ever since

Had shutters and blinds fitted recently. I am extremely pleased with all of my dealings with Barlow Blinds from beginning to end and I would have no hesitation in recommending them. The shutters in particular look fantastic and fitter Paul went the extra mile to ensure I was 110% happy with the job!

I used this company for the first time to service and fit a new fabric to my very old and tired looking wind out garden awning. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Very prompt, helpful and friendly service, Came out to show me samples and offer friendly and helpful advice. They then removed and refitted to a very high standard - it look good as new! A 5 star service. Thank you.

Had my Kitchen/diner shutter fitted today. Looks stunning. Paul was very professional & left no mess. Not the cheapest but the fact they brought the shutter van meant I got to see all the different styles available and gave me the confidence that this was the right company for us to use. Can’t recommend enough. Thank you Barlows

Despite the buildings outer appearance we received first class service from viewing in the tiny showroom, brochures and home visits to fitting. We are so pleased with all three products. We had a garden awning fitted, double blinds and shutters. All arrived in the stated time frame as made to measure, and expertly fitted. Nothing was too much trouble, advice given to help choose appropriate colours and materials. We are both so pleased thank you to all involved including office staff when I needed to ring regarding a query. Highly recommend them.

My experience with Barlow blinds was great from the first enquiry, easy to make an appointment and didn't have to wait long for the visit and quote. No attempts to up or oversell anything I didn't need. I didn't have to wait long wither for the blinds to made (in the UK) or for the fitters to come out. Paul and Matt came to fit two sets of blinds for me, and were polite, friendly, helpful and very efficient. I'm really pleased with the finished product and workmanship and would highly recommend.

Had some blinds replaced and new blinds fitted too. Great communication throughout from first visit to completion of the works. Additionally, the business arrived promptly, worked hard, protected the property to deal with any messes made. Would be happy to recommend them to friends and family and use them again for any future needs.
