Aquarius Blinds provided an exceptional service from start to finish. The fitters, Kristian & Luke, were meticulous working to the highest standard. The rest of the team, Andrew, Rees and Abby all a pleasure to deal with. Would highly recommend Aquarius Blinds to friends and family.

Got our new electric blind fitted yesterday, very good service and done in time and all cleaned before leaving. The service from Aquarius is always brilliant - that's probably why this is the fourth item we have got from them. Can't recommend them enough

We have recently had an awning installed by Aquarius. From start to finish the service was most professional and efficient. From the Surveyor's visit through the Receptionist's calls & to the Installers. Everyone was friendly, slick and knowledgeable. We are very pleased. The components are from Germany and bear out the reputation of German manufacture. Everything was explained in detail before, during and after installation. We highly recommend Aquarius.

We can’t emphasize enough how delighted we were with the entire experience we had with Aquarius. From initial contact through to installation this company is professional, knowledgeable and guided us through every phase of the project. Initially we came to them looking for a skylight blind for a large 2.5x2.5 piece of glass to assist with privacy and temperature control. Having met them and gained complete confidence we also moved forward with 650x300 large Markilux awning. This seemed a daunting element given size and weight etc – but they made us completely comfortable that it could be a great solution. During the initial conversations they took the time to get to know our project and gave us a thorough feedback on available options and what they believed was the optimal approach. This consultation process should not be undervalued as we also approached other vendors that did not want to make this effort is getting to know us. This hands on approach gives the sense you are dealing with a bespoke project manager but at the same time they have the experience of a large operation. The onsite visits allowed us to put various options on the table to discuss as there was not just a hard coded sell and move on attitude. Rather they wanted us to get the best possible solution we could find. They coordinated fluidly with our builder and had direct communication as to technical needs such as supporting structured and electricals. Had they not done this directly it could have led to wasted time and money (which they saved us on both). From fabric colours to support brackets – there was no detail left to chance and they were very granular in showing us how it would mesh best with our other fixtures. All of this in the end ended up enhancing the overall look and feel and blending in perfectly. From ordering to arrival we were kept updated as to lead times and coordinating this with other parts of our building project. All correspondence (emails, phone calls) were met with quick and clear responses which allowed us to focus on other areas of the build. The installation team were world class. Punctual, courteous, hardworking – all the attributes that you hope for at the critical juncture that can define the overall success. They spent a significant amount of time ensuring we were happy with the angles and various aspects that could otherwise be overlooked. We had a comprehensive training and information session with them which again filled us with the confidence that they were invested in wanting their brand to be stamped alongside this product. We have had amazing response from our neighbours on both the skylight blind and what has become the showpiece of our garden – the awning. It has allowed us to enjoy hot summer afternoons and evenings in the comfort of our back patio. Elements like the Shade Plus (very cool) also provide amazing relief to our ground floor kitchen in keeping it from direct sunlight and has had a great impact on our energy consumption. All I can say is – give this company an opportunity and you will not be disappointed.

Great experience from initial contact to installation. Had previously attempted to purchase an awning from another company but the service was dreadful. Glad I chose Aquarius.

If you are planning on getting an awning, then this is the place to come. We decided to get one and shopped around. Aquarius was definitely the most competitive on price. We went to their showroom and could see the one we wanted in action. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff. Andrew came and measured up. Very efficient from start to finish. Done a great job on installing, so thank you Andrew and your team on a great job.
