Curtain and Blind Guide

We believe beautiful curtains and blinds are the finishing touch to any home, and something you’ll want to live with for years and years to come. As an independent, family run business with over 20 years of experience you can be sure that your order is looked after from start to finish. 

Please see below a useful guide to planning your new curtains or blinds from choosing fabrics to guide prices and how to measure your windows we hope this information will help you.

Choosing Fabrics

1. Trends are a great way to find inspiration and ideas, but try not to be too led by them as you may end up regretting your decision in 12 months time! Try to focus on colours and fabrics you're drawn too, and that you know you and your family will enjoy living with.

​2. Consider the rest of the room and house. Whether starting from scratch or adding to an existing room scheme, it is important to consider the other elements in the room to create a cohesive look. Think about flooring, paint colours, and other surface textures. Having samples of these will help you pull your ideas together. Lay them out on a mood board or bring them into store to help you choose a fabric.

3. Find your style. Think about the look you're trying to achieve. It may be bold and modern, or classic and understated. Or you may have seen a look in a magazine that you love. We can show you the most suitable brands and fabrics for your taste. We can also order you free samples!

4. Set a budget for yourself. This will help you to narrow down your options. Fabrics range in price from £15 p/m - over £60 p/m. We can guide you to the fabrics which best suit your budget.


We are really pleased with the curtains. They really finish the room off nicely.

Guide Prices

Because our curtains and blinds are all made to measure we are unable to give you an exact cost until you have chosen your fabrics and your windows have been measured. To give you an idea, we have put together a guide based on a range of dimensions and the cost of our best selling cotton printed fabrics at £35 p/m. For curtains these prices include a pencil pleat header, and standard lining.

We hope this helps to give you a general guide. Costs will change depending which fabric and curtain heading you choose, and if you would like to add extras (eg. trimmings). As well as the addition of new curtain poles and tracks. A typical cost for fitting is £60 for one pair of curtains and pole. And £30 to fit one blind. 

These prices are based upon our March 2019 price list and are subject to change.


The Ordering Process

1. In store consultation

Visit us in store where we can help you choose the right product for your windows. You’ll also be able to see samples of our fabrics, curtains and blinds. At this stage it is helpful to bring some rough measurements with you, as well as any samples such as flooring, paint colours etc to ensure we find something suitable for your home. We can give you an estimate from your sizes, and order fabric samples to be delivered to your home. 

2. Measure Appointment

If you’re happy with your choices and estimate we can visit you in your home to take precise measurements. We charge £35 for our measure appointments, but that will be deducted from your order when you spend over £250. 

3. Place your order

Once we have provided you with a quote and you’re happy to proceed, we take a 50% deposit on placing your order. Our lead time for handmade curtains and roman blinds is 6-8 weeks, for all other blinds is 7-14 days. Once your order is ready we will contact you to arrange a fitting appointment.

4. Fitting

We work closely with local, experienced fitters to ensure your curtains and blinds are fitted and dressed to a high standard. There is an additional charge for this, which you pay direct to the fitter. We will give you a quote for this once we have measured.
