…Couldn’t be happier

“I am so happy with my new living room, beautifully finished off with these lovely curtains made by Mrs Steed.  She has done a fantastic job, had some great ideas, guided me with colour & samples; pleat choices and was totally professional throughout.  Highly recommend and will not hesitate to use Mrs Steed again.  Thank you Karen.”

“Just wanted to say that the curtains look fab – they are perfect.  Thank you so much for a great job.  You will be impressed I’m sure.  The chaps did a great job fitting it – in and out in an hour, no mess.  Very happy customer.  And all your men were bang on time – upholsterers arrived at 9 and fitters at 9.30.  Couldn’t be happier.  Also like the tie backs”    –   South Woodford

Square bay window

Square bay windows always pose a challenge & this lovely window was no exception.  Our busy client had disliked this room since moving in & was more than ready to make changes. The brief was to replace the old curtains & valance with a smarter upholstered box pelmet & 216 cm sill length curtains. We also needed improve the thermal efficiency & provide some privacy.  There was little space to fit the pelmet & track between the window architrave & ornate coving which meant that the track had to be mounted under the pelmet.  We selected a Silent Gliss double corded track & had it bent to a tighter angle than usual to allow the curtains to sit on the window sill. The curtains were interlined & thermal lining was also used. A neat single pleat heading was suggested to allow the curtains to stack back well at the side windows. To provide an element of privacy our client wanted plain voile panels fitted to the lower half of the sash windows but didnt particularly like the usual fittings available for cafe curtains.  With this in mind we sourced some brass sockets & rod, the bottom of each panel was weighted with a roman blind rod.

We are delighted to have worked on this project.  Our client has decorated the room beautifully & now has an elegant, comfortable sitting room
