How deep will my Roman blind be when it is raised?

We understand that some of our customers can be a little bit nervous about measuring their windows themselves. Don't be. In our experience, mistakes are very rare. We've put together some handy guides to help you when it comes to taking your final measurements. If in doubt, give us a call and we'll talk you through it.

The safest and most efficient way to clean your blinds is to vacuum them in situ with a clean vacuum. However you may feel that your curtains need a deep clean after several years, in which case please contact us for advice. Dry cleaning can damage your curtains if the correct process and cleaning solvents are not used. Please note we take no responsibility for any shrinkage or damage incurred should you wish to gently dry clean your blinds after a number of years.
