Curtains

Changing Curtains is Open (by appointment)

We are fully open for new work and installing as usual, if you wish to visit our shop to browse fabrics or view our display you need to make an appointment

We are making appointments for one client/group at a time

Please contact us in the first instance by telephone or email with some idea of what you are after, more detail can be helpful for an initial estimate

Anyone driving past might notice our very temporary shop front repair, a car went into the front of the shop (fortunately no one was seriously injured), we are organising repairs

We can still offer our service without you having to visit the shop, rather than popping in and choosing from fabric books, choose your fabric online (links below) and we will organise samples

Choose your preferences (tracks or poles ? pleats or eyelets ? would you love a pelmet ? )
( many photographs of our work further down this page and on the gallery page )
( I have also taken some photos of our shop display, any questions please ask )

Talk with us (by phone, email , whatsapp video...) tell us your preferences and share photos of your space so we can discuss the detail

Once we have confirmed your requirements , we will arrange to take our own detailed measurements, our measurer and fitter have face-masks and sanitiser etc, we will discuss individually should you be self-isolating or being shielded

These links will take you to our suppliers websites where most are now showing their full collections, there are far more options here than we ever had in the shop, many are arranging samples directly with you, any issues drop us an email and we will get samples sent

Blackout lining - can be useful in bedrooms and home cinema areas. Light wash at the top can be minimised by using a pelmet or a covered lath or attaching the track to the ceiling. Light wash at the edges can be minimised with velcro / hook and loop rails. The level of blackout required is a personal thing

Would you prefer a pole or a track or a pelmet ?
A pole is a feature or a detail, a track can be more discreet, a pelmet can be used as a finishing touch that can be used to hide single or multiple tracks.

Interlining - cold draughty single glazed windows, great in summer not so hot in winter. You need interlining, a fleecy sort of blanket fabric that goes between the lining and your chosen curtain fabric. Interlining is available in a number of thicknesses.

We are not interior designers, we will not tell you what you want. We are very experienced curtain makers and fitters and would be delighted to help you achieve the look you desire. Our shop manager knows our fabric books well and has trained in design and use of colour - she can discuss differences in the colour beige for hours
