Hi All

We're doing up our house & are in need of a good, local roman blind maker.

Thanks

Designer drapes in Penge High Street are great. They have a workroom over the shop. Loads of fab fabrics. Not super cheap but excellent quality and they come and fit them for you. I have just had 2 new ones from them and they are lovely.

The House of Carpets & Curtains on Sydenham Road (opposite the post office near the pocket square) make Roman blinds (and all window adornments) made-to-measure from any of their wide selection of fabrics. Tel 020 8778 8534. (I asked while in today.) Their email is: info@houseofcarpetsandcurtains.co.uk

Or cut out the middle man and go straight to Justin - 07768733338. He supplies and fits for the shop in Sydenham, we've used him for years and has supplied all our blinds and curtains. I went to him direct when the old guy left the shop in Syd - the chap who is there now specializes in flooring - he's not so passionate about window stuff. Justin is very quick and proffessional, he arrives, measures and is out of the door in minutes. Same when coming to fit, he certainly knows his stuff.

We had Roman blinds made by Designer Drapes, they did a good job. I did ask House of Carpets on the High St, but they said they couldn't do it - that was a couple of years ago, so don't know whether they now could.

Whatever you decide, please don't forget that there's a lot of work involved plus extra bits and bobs needed that go into the making of Roman blinds as well as the cost of whichever fabric you choose. (I know cos I made one.)

I chose a fabric for my kitchen that still let light through, although granted you might want a heavier black-out fabric if for a bedroom say. They do have a disadvantage on a flat rather than inset window of having visible light boarders if viewed from the outside, but I guess you'll know that.
