Efficient and aesthetically appealing, our Roman blinds are manufactured using a combination of the latest technology and traditional skills. We offer a choice of handmade blinds or a manufactured products. Fabrics can be the same for both although there may be a cost difference to the finished blind.
Factory manufactured blinds are machine stitched to produce a very high quality finish.
Handmade blinds are made locally by an experienced curtain maker.
Our assortment of fabrics have been taken from suppliers throughout Europe and contain a wide variety of semi-plain and patterned fabrics. Every effort is made to hold your hand throughout the choosing period, for example where blinds are placed side by side in the same room.
All blinds are manufactured with an off white lining as standard, although coloured, blackout, interlining and flame-retardant linings are also available. If the preference is for fabrics outside of the collection we offer, we are happy to manufacture blinds using your own fabric and linings.
Gary, we are so happy with the blinds you fitted throughout the whole house. You explained all about them and were so friendly. You were also very quick in fitting them. We would definitely recommend you to anybody thinking of having blinds. Thank you.
Alison and Chris.
There are many different styles of curtains to consider when choosing a window treatment as this is an important factor in furnishing a room. Curtains can be floor length but there are of course exceptions to this, such as some styles of bay windows, or where radiators are placed under the window being treated.
When curtains are installed in an un-carpeted room e.g. a kitchen or a room with wooden floors, it is a good idea to have the curtains slightly shorter to protect the hems from collecting dirt and dust.
For a dramatic effect, extra-long curtains, sometimes referred to as ‘puddling’ looks very effective.
Very long curtains should only be considered if they are going to be a ‘static curtain'.
Another factor to take into account is what lining is to be used. Face fabric lining, standard lining, blackout lining or if heat is an issue, maybe to use inter-lining. This is a process which is used to bulk out the drapery, making the curtains hang better and giving them a comfortable feel. It also stops creasing and gives the added benefit of helping to extend the life of the curtains.
There are many different curtain heading treatments to choose from but the four most popular ones are described below:
• Standard heading – this is a tape which is sewn onto the top of the curtain fabric and drawn up by cords to the desired width of the track.
• Triple French pleats – this is a stiffened tape which is applied to the fabric and then three pleats are formed by hand, and sewn together at intervals with a large space left in between.
• Goblet pleats – also a stiffened tape applied to the fabric but forming ‘wine goblet’ shape at intervals.
• Eyelets – this look is very in vogue at the moment. Again, a stiffened tape is used inserting metal rings at intervals. These rings can be obtained in various colours to complement the fabric choice or to match the poles.
You might also consider adding valances and pelmet boards fitted over your curtains for a more tailored look. These can be made in all shapes and sizes from plain straight lines to quite dramatic shapes. The most dramatic of these are swags and tails.
Cushions, covers and re-covers are all possible and details on request.
