Before putting the blinds up, trim them down with scissors to fit your window. Then you can leave the screws and screwdriver in the toolbox, and attach the blinds to the window frame with their adhesive strip.

When one user, Ann-Marie Pithouse, recommended the blinds on the Facebook group Extreme Couponing and Bargains UK group, her post quickly clocked up over 900 likes and 646 comments.

'I bought these from Wilko for 4 pounds. You can cut to size extremely easy, they allow light in and block the outside outcome with a clip for the bottom and they stick at the top. Colours are white and grey,' she wrote.

One fellow DIY fan replied saying: 'I love mine. Replacing all my old roller blinds with these.'

'They look lovely,' commented another.

'That's a good shout thank-you,' wrote a third.

'Wow thanks for sharing,' another added.

The Venetian style blinds are 1.2 metres wide and two meters long and wipe clean. However, if you are on the hunt for some blackout blinds you might be better of trying a darker version from IKEA.

But if you're looking for something to add a little extra insulation to your home and give yourself some privacy these will work a treat.

The blinds are only available in-store, so when you drop by Wilko this weekend, try and keep your focus. As you're eyeing up the ottomans and lamps, remember you just came in for blinds.
