You can decide whether you would like to have the control mechanism on the left or the right side of the blind. If it is easier for you to reach one side of the blind rather than the other, then this makes adjusting the blind more convenient.
This option determines the way in which the fabric rolls. Standard roll means that the fabric sits behind the roller tube. Alternatively, reverse roll sits in front of the roller tube. This option is better when your window has handles that might prevent the roller blind from closing.

With tape colour there are a number of colour options to choose from. You could match your tape colour to the slat colour so they compliment each other, or alternatively go for a nice contrast. You will see a measurement along with the colour in the selection list - this is the width in mm of the tape.
You can choose whether the blind will lift open from the left or right side. Your choice will depend on whether you want easy of access to the blind cord, or if you want to make it less accessible to a child.
You can choose whether the blind tilting wand will be positioned on the left or right side. Your choice will depend on whether you want easy of access to the tilt wand, or if you want to make it less accessible to a child.
The Standard headrail allows cords to run down the back of the blind all coming across to one side and threaded through a cord lock system. The Deluxe sidewinder has cords running behind the blind like the standard, however they wind up into cartridges inside the track. Plus the deluxe has a higher ratio gear so it is easier to open and close the blind, especially important for wider blinds.
Different lining options are available for different circumstances. In particular you could go for a thicker blackout material to darken a child's bedroom, or to keep in heat. Alternatively lighter and thinner linings are available, which will keep a room lighter and cooler.
With a made to measure wood venetian blind - the slats will be trimmed to your custom measurements. This will expose the base wood colour both sides of the blind. When your blind is fitted within a window recess, the outer edges of the slats are not visible and therefore this does not affect the finished look. However, if your blind is to be fitted outside of the window recess - you may wish to pick the ‘Stain Wood Ends’ option for a small additional cost. This will ensure that the exposed ends of the slats are stained the same colour as the rest of the slats.
