Beautiful handmade curtains designed and created uniquely for you and your home.
Personal consultation service
We offer a personal consultation service that enables our design team to work closely alongside you from the outset. Accompanied with a measuring, design and fitting service, our aim throughout is to ensure you love your final curtain creation.
Firstly, we begin the process by meeting with you, usually in the showroom. This gives us the opportunity to show you an array of different fabrics. This usually leads to the second appointment in your home or at your premises. This second meeting provides us with a better understanding of the size and style of your room. We will identify important factors such as lighting and views from your windows. We can also discuss your personal taste and note the style of the other furnishings in your room and home.
Based on your feedback made in the initial meeting at the showroom, we will bring various fabrics, which you can now view in the comfort and setting of your own home.
We will give you expert advice on curtain styles, colours and fabrics which will be perfect for your room and your personal taste. Once this consultation has taken place, and the fabrics are decided, we are perfectly placed to begin our labour of love.
Supply your own fabric?
All our curtains are handmade using beautiful materials and using techniques that combine age-old skills, which only the most conscientious seamstress will fully appreciate.
Every step of the way
From start to finish we make sure our attention to detail provides for a perfect finish. All our curtains are lined and perfectly weighted, our measuring service offers precision and no room for error. Fitting only takes place by only those with expertise and a love for the finished look.
We know how important linings are when governing how your curtains will hang as well as keeping out daylight. What we call standard lining is actually premium, high-end cotton, and using only the very softest blackout and fleece. We also use Interlink which is a lining that helps to retain heat, helps dampen sound and makes your curtains look thick and luxurious.
Equally important, we make sure only the finest tracks, poles, pelmets, and tie backs are included within your project.
Our honest approach means we will always let you know if your curtains are
beyond restoration. However, if this is something really important to you, we are happy to accommodate this if at all possible. It is not usually the cheapest option as it is often hard work, but it is something Katharine Ellen Designs is happy to offer.
This service is based on an hourly rate.
Often your curtains just need some tweaking to match your requirements perfectly.
