Frequently Asked Questions
Can I purchase online? No. We sell so many products with limited quantities (sometimes only one of each item!), or which require bespoke elements (such as curtain making or carpet laying), that running an e-commerce site is impractical. We do show a range of products on this website so you can see the type of products we sell, but you do need to come in store or give us a call to make a purchase.
Do you do gift vouchers? Yes, we do gift vouchers of any value.
Do you do wedding registries? Yes, we do. Please contact us to arrange one.

How much do new curtains or blinds cost? The cost of curtains or blinds is very dependent on the style and fabric you choose. To give you an accurate estimate we need to measure your windows and provide an individual quote. We provide free measures and quotes, so please call us on 06 345 4554 to arrange a time for us to come to your home.
Do curtains provide insulation and warmth? Yes, curtains made with quality fabric and lining, and that are fitted properly, will trap a layer of air between the window and the curtain, preventing the flow of cold air from the window into the room. Without that flow of cold air, rooms will retain their warmth for longer and therefore won’t need as much heating to stay cosy. Curtains are effective at reducing heat loss on both single and double-glazed windows. Check out our full article here.
