4: upload an image of the window if possible
5: if you can send us some rough measurements we can give you some ideas of costing for each product.
6: Any preferences for the type of fabric you are looking for?

What happen’s during the appointment?

One of our designers will then contact you to set up the appointment. They will be working from one of our showrooms which are currently closed (but within walking distance for the designers so respecting Government guidelines to stay at home)

Once connected, we can show you the hangers of the different fabrics which are also shown on the website; we can also show you how all the fabrics in the range look when made up as a curtain or blind. We will show you the different linings, heading styles, ideas for injecting colour and also the finished length choices. The different hanging systems are also on display in the showroom including all the motorised options. It is possible to see the options for Roman blinds, e.g. differences between hand stabbed, machined, chain lifts or batons. All the roller blinds, brackets, tube sizes etc. can be demonstrated.

You can ask all the questions you may have directly; our designers will also be able to share with you if using Zoom, various images on the website and also within our portfolio of curtains and blinds we have done on similar windows.

All of this is free and very easy to set up; after the consultation we can send you a quote for the products you have selected and also arrange to send out samples.

We can also arrange for large returnable samples to be sent for you to see the fabric on a larger scale and also in the different lights.
