Dickinsons have the largest choice of designer fabrics in the North of England, with over 25,000 fabric choices. In addition to choosing the fabric that will turn your home into a dream home, you will also need to consider what style will suit your home AND the fabric best. That's why Dickinsons have a team of Interior Designers in-store to help you – it can be very confusing if you have to make these decisions on your own!
Because our designers work for clients on domestic and commercial properties we would advise you to call in to the store to arrange an appointment –that way we can ensure that you get the right quality of friendly advice that we pride ourselves on giving.
We offer a one-hour in-store consultation free of charge, and thereafter we charge a fee of £50 per hour, fully refundable on orders placed over £1000. All of the curtains and blinds that we supply are individually made to your requirements, and we provide a full estimating, make-up and installation service.
You will be delighted with the end result, as we are recognised nationally for our design and quality, having won the UK Interiors Retailer of the Year, UK soft furnishings retailer of the year, and we have been featured in Homes and Gardens for our design excellence..
The main types of curtain styles are as follows:
For a modern, contemporary look there are two great options. Tab Tops and Eyelets both give the appearance of a slimline, smooth curtain, with no fullness, gathers, fussy or fancy bits. When combined with a stunning curtain pole both of these options deliver a clean, stylish look that will sit beautifully in any home.
If you after a more traditional look, then you will be delighted to learn that traditional swags and tails are making a comeback after years in the wilderness, and they really can be made very individual to create just the right look for you, with a range of different pelmet styles available.
Whatever you favourite look, we can produce curtains with the following headings:
Pinch pleat, Box pleat, Pencil pleat, French pleat, Goblet pleat or Puff ball heading can all be produced to create the look of your dreams.
