Curtains - Nets - Blinds - Pelmets

Hello my name is Jane and I have been a curtain maker in the Dartford, kent area for the last 20 years.
I have decided to open this shop as an extension of my home run business, we are not part of a chain or a large department store who often will sub contract out your work to a third party. During the whole process of choosing your fabrics and making your curtains or soft furnishings you will only be in contact with two people, my representative in this shop and me the curtain maker. You may also meet my husband if you require a fitting service and in this case I will personally accompany him to ensure that your new addition to your home is fitted and shown at its best.
This is the personal service that I have been providing over the last 20 years and is also the reason I have never had to advertise.

Made to Measure Curtains

I will make the curtains to your specific requirements lined with ivory solpruffe cotton sateen as standard with mitred corners and weights. Other linings available are blackout, bonded or interlined which is another layer of insulation added between the fabric and the lining.

Made to Measure Blinds

Our blinds complete and ready to hang in or outside your recess, most of our fabrics are suitable for roman blinds with a choice of all linings. I make rod pockets from the lining so pleasing to the eye from the outside and use wooden dowels as i find this gives a more rigid crisper finish, I sew invisible stitching points across the blind to attach the fabric to the lining so no ugly machine lines in the middle of the blind.
The blind can either be hung on the supplied fabric covered baton with a cord lock or cleat, a sidewinder option is available at an extra cost.
Blinds can be finished with a contrasting border or trim such as beads, pom poms, tassels or eyelets, a roman blind when combined with a curtain can give an exquisite look to complete your window design.

Made to Measure Pelmets

There are a large variety of pelmet and valance designs whether you want to be minimalistic or opulent, they can be used to hide unsightly rails and are a stunning focal point of the room.
We make handmade wooden pelmets any shape to match or contrast your curtains or blinds creating a contemporary look, they can be made from a variety of materials and finished with a multitude of trims. All joints in our woodwork are glued to ensure you are provided with a sturdy product so when removing it remains in one piece. Even intricate bay window wooden pelmets can be made this will entail a pre-visit to construct the template.
Valances, swags and tails add a softness to your window and give a more elegant and traditional feel with plenty of styles to compliment your room and taste.
Tie backs finish off your window dressing, can be made various widths and shapes, numerous decorative touches can be added to enhance the finished look.
