Made to Measure Curtains and Blinds
We make curtains and soft furnishings especially for you to make the most of your home.
We are often asked to adjust or remake curtains to fit a new home and are always happy to do so, if possible; a bonus in this economical climate! In some cases it is a question of simply shortening curtains which can be quite quick and inexpensive. In other cases, however, where the fabric is damaged or the curtain needs to be re-made, you need to bare in mind that it can take as much time as starting afresh, although you will be saving the cost of buying new fabric. We have also been asked to make Roman Blinds out of existing pairs of curtains, which has proven to be very successful. We are always happy to advise.
You buy it and we make it!
Once you have chosen your fabric for your project, it can be delivered directly to me.
During our initial visit we will have chosen specifics including, which fittings you require, choice of linings and headings, I will then make your order for you.
To ensure we deliver window dressings that meet your needs, we can visit you in your home to discuss your requirements and measure up any windows and doors. You choose the fabric you would like and we can advise you on the practicalities. We can also help you find styles that will suit your home and your personality.
All our blinds are specifically made to order. We can make Roman or Roller blinds to complement any setting and colour scheme.
Blinds can be lined with either standard curtain lining or specialised linings such as blackout, thermal or coloured.
See our Gallery section for more examples of some of the curtains and blinds we have made.

Tie-backs, Pelmets and Valances
Tie-backs,Pelmets and Valances can finish a look of a room, often hiding unattractive curtain fittings. They add a touch of elegance and individuality.
Pelmets are flat and solid accessories made from buckram or wood covered in your chosen fabric. Valances are softer using just the fabric to create pleats or other finishes.
Tie-backs can offer a contrast, touches of design or simply finish off the look. They can maximise your natural light and pull a colour scheme together, or can be an economical way to liven up curtains you have tired of. With a relatively small amount of fabric, everyone can add a little bit of luxury and beauty into their lives!
You can mix and match just as you see here. If you would like something a little special for your room, please contact us. We will be happy to explore ideas.
See our Gallery section for more examples.
Window Seat/ Bench Cushions
Window seat cushions and bench seats are making a huge come-back. Providing that much needed extra seating when those extra guests turn up or even to recline on with a good book.
We measure the seat in detail and make an exact template which is used to create the pads, either in feather or foam. Piped or unpiped covers can be made in a fabric of your choice, with extra long zips inserted to allow easy removal for cleaning. When combined with scatter cushions the effect is very pleasing and most comfortable.
Cushions are one of the easiest ways to brighten a room and can add luxury and comfort to any living space.
They can be statement pieces, whether made of rich velvets, naturals linens or country floral, best of all they can be made to look gorgeous on a fixed budget.
See our Gallery section for more examples of some of the lovely cushions we produce for our customers.
No two designs are ever the same!
Applique is fun, stylish and very fashionable today. It can be used to give a personal touch to almost anything. It can personalise with initials, make an ordinary object extraordinary and a child's PE bag fun!
