Roman blinds are essentially a panel of fabric that can be drawn up or down in a series of large pleats using cords and rods attached to the rear of the blind.

Roman blinds can be fitted either within the window recess or outside it. If you are hanging the blind outside the window recess, then it is advisable to allow a generous overlap each side of the window to minimise any light that may creep around the edges.
Also, fitting a roman blind above the window can make a window look larger and will prevent the top fold blocking light, since it will not cover any of the window. If you have a protruding window sill, the blind can still finish there if required.

We can also supply roman blinds for bay windows.

  • Luxury sidewinder control with chrome chain
  • Left or Right hand chain operation

The sheer range of fabrics we have available means that it is possible to ensure that the fabric chosen for your Roman blind co-ordinates with the décor of the room, whether the scheme is traditional or modern, floral or contemporary. We also have Roman Blinds in designs aimed specifically at rooms such as children's bedrooms and you will also find blinds suitable for kitchens and bathrooms.

We offer several types as lining as we do with made to measure curtains. We supply our roman blinds with a child safe track with a chrome sidewinder chain that makes raising and lowering the blind less of a chore and eliminating the cord and cleat system entirely. Our made to measue blinds also come with safety breakaway devices that pull apart and snap back together.

To help you match to your décor, we can supply a small sample for you to take away if required

Important to know
Some manufacturers / suppliers will sew through the front fabric to make the rod pockets, if your blind is blackout lined you will likely see a line of light shining through the needle pinholes in the morning, our blinds are never sewn through the front of the fabric unless specifically requested..
