We have our own fabric, is this something we can use?
If you would like to source your own fabrics for curtains and Roman blinds this is no problem at all. If you provide us with details of the fabric we can advise you what fabric quantities, you would require. For roller blinds we do not recommend choosing a fabric outside the range we provide, as the requirements from the fabric within the manufacturing process is quite different. We are happy to provide more detail and discuss with you the choices available.
Would you supply blinds on our own measurements?
We always recommend having a measure carried out. As confident as you may feel measuring for the blinds, there is always room for error. Our team of installers are trained to measure your blinds to your windows requirements. There may be an unusual aspect to your window which may mean extra items such as battens are required. If we have measured, we can make a note to ensure all blinds are installed to the highest standard. Equally if blinds are manufactured to your measurements and there is a size discrepancy it would be mean that to alter it may incur an extra cost. As this is a free service, we strongly recommend you book a time in.

Are your blinds fire retardant?
This would depend on the blinds that you choose. We have a special range of Curtain and Roman fabric which are inherently fire retardant, please always specify if this is something you require. There are some fabrics available on the roller and vertical ranges that are also fire retardant. We are happy to discuss this with you at length and show you samples of relevant fabrics.

I am thinking of changing my windows, can I still use the same blinds?
We can only ascertain this once we have measured your new windows. There could be a difference in size which would mean the blinds would not fit.

We can discuss this with you on the day of your measure, however this will be chargeable.
You didn’t make our blinds, but we need our blinds repaired, is this something you can help with?
If your blinds are a system that we use, we can repair. If they are from other retailers such as Argos or IKEA we would not be able to repair as the way they manufacture the blinds are unique to them. For vertical blinds we can repair headrails, missing chains and weights and replace fabric. Roller Blinds we can replace side controls, change fabric and adjust torn or faded fabric. For Venetian blinds it would be depend on the nature of the repair required. Once we have seen the blinds fault we will be able to advise more accurately. If you are looking to seek costs for repairs it's always best to email us a picture of the blind in question with a detailed description, we can then email a quote or if there are a large number of blinds needing repairs we can book in a free visit to costs the repairs.
