Rollers

Roller blinds are simple, versatile and an excellent solution for privacy. Roller blinds are an excellent solution for smaller windows in kitchens, bathrooms and utility areas. They can be fitted neatly inside a recess or mounted on the wall, with various controls available to suit your needs such as chain, spring or motorized.

Available in a wide selection of coloured and patterned fabrics. Specialist fabrics are also available including wipe cleanable, Moisture resistant, Black out or dim out, and flame retardant.

We also offer ‘laminated’ blinds, which means you can have a fabric (from our pattern books or supplied by yourself) made into a roller blind in a process where the fabric has a stiff backing adhered on to allow for the blind to roll neatly up as a standard roller blind would.

Shutters

Shutters are a great way to add a touch of luxury to your home. Similar to venetians, shutters allow more control over the level of light and privacy in your room as slats can be turned or the doors opened and folded back to fully reveal the window. Shutters can be made from wood, faux wood and are available in a range of colours.

This is a specialist installation and so during the enquiry stage a full survey will be undertaken to ensure the desired door configuration works and that the shutters can be fitted to look fantastic.
