Roman Blinds

Roman blinds are made from fabric of your choice which gives a softer look to windows, fitted inside or outside the window recess. The fabric choice can reflect and compliment your decor. They can be made with blackout lining which is ideal for bedrooms.

Roller Blinds

Rollers are an excellent alternative to curtains where space is limited, budget is tight or a minimalist look is required. There is a vast colour selection, made either in solid blockout or filter, and can be set on double rollers to accommodate both privacy and filter. We also do a range of printed roller blinds to co-ordinate with your decor.

Venitian Blinds

Venetian blinds are available in aluminium, wood, or regenerated wood. They come in a variety of sizes. These blinds provide maximum light control and privacy. By lifting or tilting you can get perfect natural lighting or block out for privacy in any room, available in a variety of colour options.

Soft-furnishings play a crucial role within the overall design of a space, turning a house into a home. By combining fabrics and blinds with ideas, Drapes by Design can help create the right feel for your home. By inspiring your imagination, we can bring together your thoughts and our inspiration to create the perfect room setting.
