Can you fit to bay windows in my living room?
Bay windows can be tricky to get right. Luckily, we have lots of experience in dressing bay windows! Take a look at our recently completed projects to see how we have finished some bay windows recently, or for more inspiration, take a look at our design ideas for bay windows.
My living room windows are not a standard size, does this matter?
Not at all! All our curtains are completely made to measure, so we carefully measure each window to be sure to have the perfect size ordered for you.
Can I see the fabrics in real life?
It can be difficult to visualise how your new kitchen curtains could look without seeing and feeling the fabrics in person – there is only so much you can see with a picture! We welcome visits to any of our London showrooms – get in touch with our team if you wish to discuss your design ideas!
