Welcome to Charisma Blinds.
Charisma Blinds is a family owned and run business, based in the South East of Ireland. Operating since 1994, we provide a high quality product and excellent customer service while still offering very competitive prices. Unlike most retail shops around the country, we operate from our own dedicated factory unit. This gives us greater control over the quality of product and materials used ensuring blinds that will work and last for years to come..
Choosing the correct type of window covering can be one of the most important decisions in defining the character of your home or business. With such a variety of choices available today, from roller blinds, through to aluminium or wood venetian blinds, plantation shutters, verticals or pleated blinds, there is something to suit all tastes. Using natural wood, sleek aluminium or subtle soft fabrics, the choices are almost endless.
Whatever your requirements, Charisma Blinds have the solution and with three great showrooms, a home consultation service available and free measuring and fitting we are confident that you will find exactly the product to enhance your home or place of work.
Saving Money Thermally efficient Blinds
Ever notice that sneaky draught that curls around your feet? Where does it come from? Well, when the warm air from your room hits the cold window, the air gets chilled, drops to the floor and creates little convection currents. By installing roller blinds, you create an extra layer, a blanket if you like, that shields the warm room air from the cold window. Without blinds, the warm air can sneak behind curtains and chill out, not only cooling the room, but costing you money!!!!
Roller blinds Timeless and practical
With years of experience in manufacture and supplying roller blinds, Charisma can offer the widest choice in both fabrics and finishes to give you the blinds that will suit your requirements and lifestyle. We can supply materials from the traditional woven fabrics to the newer translucent, suede and hessian style cloth, giving both the look and cosiness that is demanded with today’s living. Not only do we offer all the latest fabrics, in jacquard, print or plain, but, combined with modern finishes and the most advanced sidewinder or spring system on the market, you can have confidence that you will have years of satisfaction from your blinds.

Wood blinds Versatile and durable
Now popular for many years, the timber venetian has developed to be a must have in many Irish homes. It's greater affordability, larger choice of colours and increased size range has enhanced its reputation as a material that gives ambience, light control and privacy to any room. With four sizes of slat available (25mm, 35mm, 50mm, 70mm) and upwards of 25 colours to match all requirements, the wood venetian blind is ideal for any situation or location.
Vertical blinds Modern and effective.
No longer the preserve of the office environment, today’s vertical blinds have evolved to be one of the most stylish choices for the modern home. Like roller blinds, the fabrics available are now extensive and all encompassing. Primarily available in 89mm wide louvres, they can be made to fit angled windows, curved windows or arched windows as well as the traditional patio or bay window.
Aluminium Venetians Crisp and elegant
The evolution of the aluminium venetian blind has been dramatic within the last decade. Formerly seen as “what Granny had on the window”, today’s aluminium blinds are offered in 4 sizes, the micro 16mm, sleek 25mm, the modern 35mm and the robust 50mm. The product now comes in over 75 colourways and includes wood effect (Aliwood), pearlised, textured or perforated. Charisma can supply aluminium blinds in arched, triangles or circular as well as the more traditional shape. For commercial situations, we can also offer integrated Venetian blinds between glass.
Plantation shutter Stunning and ageless
Widely available in warmer climates for decades, the plantation shutter has become the new style icon in the home today. A product that offers great flexibility in its ability to vary light and privacy, it is dominant enough to be a stand alone window product or subtle enough to blend into the background. We believe it not only sits as a window product but also as a piece of furniture for the home. Charisma Blinds offer many styles and frame types in both painted and stained timber. We offer these in real, solid wood, as opposed to the lower quality MDF product supplied by some other companies. Shutters can be manufactured to fit regular, bay, arched, triangular or curved windows. In fact, almost any type of window is possible to manufacture, exactly to your specification.
Pleated blinds Unique and effective
Often called conservatory blinds, the pleated is primarily used in the sunroom but is increasingly being used as a window dressing in other parts of the house. Available in single layer fabric(plisse) or double honeycomb material(duette), Charisma recommend the equi-pleat system which allows the blind to maintain its shape all the way down a window (equal pleating the fabric!). Available in blackout, dim out or translucent material, Charisma can offer the blinds for roof operation or free hanging in both rectangular or shaped sizes. We can even motorise your blinds to your specifications. Additionally, we can now offer the ‘perfect fit ’ pleated blind, where the fabric is enclosed within an aluminium frame, giving the blind a neat and tidy finish.
Roman blind Soft and natural
For those who wish their window coverings to have a softer finish, the roman blind can be an excellent choice. Available to mount within, or outside the window reveal, this blind type can be customised with or without blackout lining.Operated with a chain mechanism, the blind raises or lowers easily to create a soft, cosy look to any room.
