Frequently Asked Questions

Our blinds

Who is Mr. Jealousy?
Mr. Jealousy is a Dutch company founded by four friends who share a passion for creativity and window coverings. We believe that ordering blinds online should be an enjoyable, hassle-free, and exciting experience. With countless standard stores offering dull, colorless collections, Mr. Jealousy is here to provide a selection of the most captivating colors and finishes that are sure to ignite your excitement. Even if you opt for classic black or white, you can proudly say it's a Mr. Jealousy choice. We offer the finest blinds crafted from wood, bamboo, or aluminum, designed for effortless measuring and hanging – all with a big smile on your face.
Why only 40 colors and not 9,000?
If you've ever been faced with a color fan deck containing 9,000 options at a hardware store, you know that more choices aren't always better. We've carefully selected colors that are in tune with today's trends. No matter what you choose, there's no wrong decision.
What are ladder tapes?
Ladder tapes are decorative textile tape of 25 mm wide. These fall over the perforation holes, so you no longer see these holes and therefore no light can pass through. More about cords & ties
Are the blinds suitable for a tilt and turn window?
In many cases, our blinds are compatible with tilt-and-turn windows. You can order side guides along with your blinds to ensure they work seamlessly with this type of window.
Can I use the blinds in a damp room?
Certainly, you can! However, it's essential to be aware that prolonged exposure to excessive moisture can potentially damage the product over time. Therefore, avoid hanging them in the shower area, and always ensure good ventilation in the room after use. This way, you can maintain the beauty and durability of your blinds for an extended period.
Are the top bar and bottom rail always in the same color as the blinds?
For some of our colors or finishes, the top rail and bottom rail may have a slightly different color. Rest assured, we make sure this difference is kept to a minimum, and the chosen color complements nicely. If you have any questions about this, feel free to reach out to us via chat. You can also click the button below to learn more about which colors have a different top rail and bottom rail:
Do you have more colors than on the website?
You can find all the available colors on our website. We like to keep our range flexible, so there may be times when we add or remove colors. If you have specific preferences, don't hesitate to ask! You can reach out through the chat bubble at the bottom of the page.
What makes the difference between a narrow and wide slat?
The wider the slats on your blinds, the more sunlight you can let in and the better your view of the outside world. Narrower slats are typically a better fit for smaller windows. For wooden blinds, we exclusively offer a 50mm size. This is the most popular and aesthetically pleasing choice for wooden blinds. To learn more about different slat widths, click the button below:
Can Mr. Jealousys are electronically operated?
Certainly, it's possible! However, we can't guarantee it. Both our aluminum and wooden blinds can be made operable with the Somfy Tilt Only Wirefree system. Keep in mind that you'll need various products and components to ensure everything fits and works correctly. Somfy products are compatible with Apple HomeKit, Google Home, and Alexa.
Can I see your colors in real life?
Yes, you can order samples from us. This costs € 1 per sample. When you have finally chosen a color and want to order, you will receive the price paid for the samples back as a discount code on your actual order.
What are the dimensions of the top box?
The top box of our 50mm blinds is 57mm deep and 51mm high. The top box of 25mm blinds is 25mm deep and 25mm high.
Can you supply the blinds with a specific color top bar or bottom bar?
You can! Contact us at and we will look for the best combination together.
Can I order blinds narrower than 500 mm?
Certainly, it's possible! However, at the moment, we only offer this option upon request. You can initially place an order with a width of 500 mm and then share your specific size with us through chat, email, or WhatsApp (as long as it's a minimum of 420 mm). For blinds narrower than 500 mm, the control mechanism is always shared.

Measuring and installation

What is the difference between Face and Recess Fit?
When a blind is installed with a 'recess fit,' it is securely placed between the walls or the window frame, typically with the sides not visible. On the other hand, with a 'face fit,' the blind hangs freely in front of the window frame, wall, or ceiling, allowing the sides of the blind to be generally visible.
I've just unpacked my blinds, and they look different from what I expected?
Blinds might seem different when you first unpack them compared to when they're properly installed where you want them. The overall appearance can change. So, please, judge your blinds only after you've installed them in the right spot.
What is the package height?
The package height of blinds is the height of the blind when raised. The package height includes the top rail and the bottom slat of the blind, between which the blinds hang.
How do I hang the blinds?
You can also install our blinds yourself. Simply follow our instructions; it's truly straightforward. If you're still having trouble, we're here to assist you via chat
