Roman Blinds – A popular Choice

Have been making another set of Roman Blinds this time for a Lewes artist, Dawn Stacey:

Garden Birds Roman Blind

Garden Birds Roman Blind

She is currently exhibiting at The Hop Gallery until March 13th with her photographer husband David.

She is renowned for her paintings inspired by the railway land… in keeping with her love of the natural world she chose for one a beautiful fabric by Cath Kidtson, called Garden Birds.

My roman blinds are made to measure, are carefully yet solidly constructed, and with good quality materials, for example I use wooden 9mm dowels – this means that there will be no bowing or dipping of the blind in the middle.  These can be removed easily when the blind needs to be dry-cleaned. These are also contained in their own channels, which also mean there is far less likelihood of wear and tear at these stress points.  They have a chorded hand pull system.   I have a choice of pulls and cleat finishes, brass, chrome, brushed chrome, or bronze.   I am happy to come out to advise and measure, as well as to deliver your blind once completed.


Showing Construction of Roman Blind

The great thing about Roman Blinds is that they take very little material to make, and are therefore a much cheaper option for a window than curtains and are suited to a straightforward uncluttered look to a room.
