Roman Blinds - Scroll down for lots of photos

 

I have been making roman blinds for about 25 years. They are a popular alternative to curtains. It is a good way of brightening up a room without spending a fortune on fabric, as they use a lot less than curtains do.

Supply your own new fabric

or old curtains for remaking (clean, with old lining and headings removed please)

 

 

 A Word about Fabric

 

The best fabric for blinds is a medium weight cotton/linen/poly curtain fabric.

Nothing too thick or heavy or velvety or with any stretch in the weave.

And no thin or slippy slidey silks please.

It needs to keep it's shape when cut.

I cannot guarantee a perfect finish if the fabric is not suitable.

Maximum size - 2.5 square metres.

If in doubt, phone me.

 

 

How to work out Fabric Required

 

Add 10cms to the width and 20cms to the length of the finished blind size.

So - If the blind measures 117cms wide x 163cms long

You will need a piece of fabric which measures approx.

127cms wide x 183cms long

 

 

Making - Up Prices

 

Cost includes lining (blackout or cotton), wood battens and dowelling, screw eyes, velcro, cord, rings, breakaway safety clips, cleat hook and a wooden acorn.

Blinds will be made up ready corded and attached to a 2x2cms wooden batten ready for drilling and fitting to your wall or frame (screws not supplied)

 

Price per square metre - £60.00 (min. per blind £70)

So - For the above blind you would multiply width x length in metres

(1.17 x 1.63) = 1.90 square metres x £60

Which makes the cost to you £114 (+ your fabric)
