All our curtains have the option of standard or blackout lining depending on where in the home you want to use them. We can also provide matching tie-backs and cushion covers to really finish the look. Control options include hand-drawn, cord pulley, and motorised (motorised can use remote control, voice control, and app control)
Perfect Fit Blinds
Perfect fit blinds do exactly as it says on the tin! The blinds are housed in a metal frame which attaches to clips that are slid underneath the window gasket, causing no damage. This avoids any drilling or fixing in the windows making the blinds perfect for conservatories, brand new windows or when fixing into the frame just is not practical. The frames can be powder coated to match many different modern window frame colours, or as standard can come in white to match UPVC window frames. The blinds available in this product are metal venetians, wooden venetians, pleated fabric blinds and roller blinds. We only have well tensioned blinds which negates the need for pull cords and blind controls – the blinds are simply raised and lowered by hand. This lack of cords and controls means the blinds are safe by design and fully compliant with child safety regulations.
Roller blinds are a staple classic and find themselves at home in any setting. With hundreds of colours, fabrics and patterns to chose from you’re sure to find a style that suits you and your home. Roller blinds are only available with a chain operation, but this is no longer the case. All our roller blinds can be specified with and operate on; chain operation spring loaded control, crank handle control or motorised control. (motorised can use remote control, voice control and app control)
We can provide the following materials for your blinds;
PVC – These are wipeable, durable, waterproof, black out and fire retardant.
Dimout – dimout blinds allow light to transmit through the main body of the fabric and do not provide a full blackout solution. They are great for shading and privacy but they would not be suitable for bedrooms should you need it to be very dark to sleep!
Blackout – blackout fabrics are available in most of the same colours and styles that you find in the dimout range. There is a pvc backing on the polyester front of the fabric which does not allow light to pass through the main body of the fabric. The blinds are nice to the touch and will allow for a good night’s sleep and promote a healthy sleeping pattern.
Screen fabric – Screen fabric differs slightly to the dimout selection as its a weaved fabric which has different openness ratings. 1%, 3%, 5% are common openness factors, the number relates to the amount of light that is able to transmit through the fabric. They are great for privacy, shading and killing glare but allow the external view to still be visible.
Roman blinds are available in a huge range of fabrics with a vast array of colours and finishes. They can be unlined or blackout lined if they are specifically for a bedroom – or if you just want more heat retention and thermal saving properties from your blinds. Roman blinds offer a timeless elegant look and are at home in any setting. They add a soft touch and gentle lines to any space with warming qualities. Matching cushion covers can even be made to match your blinds! We offer our Roman blinds with chain operation or a pull cord operation.
Our stunning shutter range has to be seen to be truly appreciated. We use a high quality PVC as our main offering, but we can offer hardwood if required. Our PVC range is indistinguishable from the wooden range, they are also cheaper and carry an equivalent warranty.

Don’t even worry about the colour choices, there are plenty. with 18 coming as standard you can also have fully personalised colours too. All we need is a RAL code and we are in business. You can configure them to your heart’s content too, full height, tier on tier, cafe style, hidden tilt rods, hidden tilt rods, We could go on…
Velux and Skylight blinds are available in dimout and blackout fabrics meaning they can be utilised in living spaces and bedrooms alike. They can be manually operated, hardwired motirised or even solar power motorised. The benefit of the motorised variants are that those hard to reach windows mean you don’t need to have a pole to operate them or struggle with difficult angles and window returns which can possibly impede the pole. If the windows are at an accessible height by foot then that’s great, they are tensioned so can be easily operated up and down by hand.
Our stunning range of venetian blinds are available in real wood, faux wood and aluminium. With a huge range of colours, slat finishes and tape options you’re sure to find something to suit your tastes and give your home the finishing touches it deserves. Our slats are available in 35mm & 50mm in the wood and faux wood and a 25mm slat in the aluminium range. Faux wood venetians are great in bathrooms and areas with high moisture content as they are waterproof and they won’t warp or fade. Venetians do not offer full blackout, so they are ok for bedrooms but they often are better complimented by secondary products such as curtains if you require full blackout. Our wood and faux wood venetians are controlled by tilt and pull chords with the aluminium using a control wand for the tilt operation. Simple, effective and they also look great.
Vertical blinds are available in a massive array of colors, textures, patterns and finishes. The head rails can be controlled by a wand or pull cord (they can be motorised, but this is limited to the tilt feature, not opening and drawing the drapes back and forth) and can be a standard white finish or they can be powder coated to match different window hardware colours. They are great for covering large spaces and they offer superior light control. dimout and blackout options mean they can be used in almost any room and the PVC options mean bathrooms don’t miss out either.
