Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are an ideal neat solution for every window in your home, and can be made in coordinating fabrics to compliment your chosen decor. These contemporary window dressing are a compact alternative to curtains, offering light control and privacy functionality, along with style and elegance.

Made to measure roman blinds are all handmade by myself from my extensive range of fabrics and with a choice of linings, interlinings and trimmings. All are complete with a sturdy metal cassette headrail. Unlike other roman blind manufacturers, I will make them up to a width of up to 3 meters wide. Available with a range of chain colour options and choice of chain operation side for those hard to reach windows that have obstructions on the right hand side.

Roman blinds can also be upgraded to Somfy motorisation for use with a remote control. The Somfy hub is also available for hands free use with your Smart device, which can also be operated with timers away from the home.

The Dual Rise mechanism allows you to have a much longer chain at 60 cm from the floor as opposed to 150 cm if there was a loop or cord, which in turn will make it suitable for operation by all ages. The front chain will always be supplied shorter than the rear chain so it is easy to identify which is for lowering or raising the blind.

It is quieter and smoother than the traditional chain operated system and there is no need for a cleat to fit to the wall ensuring minimal disruption to your decor.

The fabrics available for roman blinds are from the following fabric suppliers:
