Fabric choices

We offer a wide range of fabrics; do consider the nature of some fabrics before you select them to make your curtains.

  • Linen and silk may be more susceptible to creasing 
  • Some fabrics cannot be ironed or steamed, so you may want to choose a fabric that is suitable for ironing; do ask us for advice in store
  • We recommend ironing on the reverse fabric side, and testing in a small inconspicuous area first
  • Some embroidered fabrics may not drape as uniformly as others
  • We recommend softer, lighter weight fabrics for wave curtains
  • Do talk to a Partner in store for help with a blackout blind, to determine the level of opacity you need
At-Home estimating

If you've decided what kind of blinds or curtains you need and the fabric you want to use, you can book a free appointment with us to visit your home so we can measure up accurately for you. We’ll also calculate your exact fabric requirements and can quote for at-home fitting.

  • Please make sure you book your estimating appointment for a time when the space will be fully accessible to the Estimator and not subject to change. 
  • Estimates are valid for 28 days; after this or any changes to your estimate we'll need to reissue, if you permit us to retain your measurements.
  • The Estimator will talk to you about any additional services available or other works you may need to complete before we can fit your chosen products, if you'd like us to do so
  • There's no obligation to choose us for fitting your products - we can just supply them for you to fit yourself
  • We'll give you an estimate on the day, which you can accept during the visit or by sending to our Home Services Customer Team

At-Home fitting

If we've measured for and made up your curtains or blinds, we can come and fit them for you too - ask your Estimator, or in our shops when you place your order.

The charge for this service is based on the number and type of items you want us to fit. We can also fit new curtain poles or tracks.
