Happy 2016 everyone! We are excited to announce that this year BlindsInABox celebrates its 9 year anniversary.
In 2008, Simeone Salik was building a house and searching for inexpensive temporary blinds as a quick fix to provide privacy in the home and to keep the light out of the bedroom. However, unable to find what she wanted, Ms Salik realised that there was a gap in the market.
In 2007, businessman Dominic Lawrence and Ms. Salik's interior designer at the time, Janice Dalton joined Ms Salik, creating BlindsInABox and beginning to sell tempoarary blinds on the website.
With a unique concept and product nailed down, in September 2008 Ms Salik, Ms Dalton and Mr Lawrence pitched BlindsInABox to the Dragon's Den business tycoons. The pitch was so strong that James Caan and Duncan Bannatyne immeditately invested £40,000.
It has been a long 9 years since then, but BlindsInABox has gone from strength to strengh. Updating the user experience of the site and offering limited-time offers on different styles of temporary blinds, it is with great excitement that we announce 9 years providing high-quality, temporary blinds to people moving home, to university students and new-parents needing blackout blinds to study and sleep respectively and to contractors.
