Enter our competition - Room With A View

When we think about views from our home, we might picture rolling hills, stunning skylines and dramatic coastlines. But here at Swift Direct Blinds, we know there are some views that are not quite as special: wheelie bins, brick walls, scrap yards (to name a few).

We want to see if YOU think you’ve got the worst view in Britain from your home. Simply share a photo of the view from your home in the comments below this Facebook post and we’ll give a set of blinds worth £500 to the best entry. Competition closes at midnight on Monday 25 February and the winner will be announced shortly after.
