I also measure your windows and existing poles so you know all the finished products will fit perfectly. When offering products to you, I will work with your budget and offer what fits within and advise where this is not possible and help you find another option.

Anything for commercial use has appropriate treatments. Roman blinds all have all safety devices required by law.
How to Measure for Curtains
Width – Do not measure the window. Measure your track or pole from end to end excluding finials.
Drop – Before you measure your drop, decide if you want your curtain to be floor length, sill length or above the sill.
For tracks – Measure from the top of the track.
For poles – Measure from the hook of the curtain ring and add 2cm so that the curtain can cover the hook. For eyelet curtains, measure from the top of the pole.
Custom roman blinds are made to your exact requirements once you provide the material and dimensions.
How to Measure for Blinds
Inside a window recess – If you want your blind positioned in the window recess, measure the width of the recess measured at the top, middle and bottom (plaster work is not always even and measurements may vary. This will prevent the blind from rubbing).
Outside a window recess – If you want your blind positioned outside the window recess, measure the recess and add 5 – 8cm.
Cushions can be square, rectangular, bolster, boxed or round; they can be plain, piped, flanged, frilled, boxed or regular throw cushions with zips or buttons. Any finish and look is possible. I make cushions for homes, hotels, B&Bs, boats, campers and more.
