CurtainsFor design and make a wide range of curtains, blinds and porthole bungs/stuffers for boats, narrowboats, widebeams. As well as cushions, covers, quilts etc.
Narrowboat owners ourselves, we understand the difficulties and challenges of curtains and blinds for boats.
We are based in the North West (around Chester) and North Wales and we can travel to you to measure up to discuss your requirements (and ultimately fit), or provide guidance for you to do it yourself (which saves you money).
We make curtains for narrowboats, curtains for widebeams and curtains for many other boats. We also make roman blinds for narrowboats, blinds for widebeams and a multitude of other soft furnishings.
We do not make boats, fit outs or upholstery – we only do what we are good at, which is curtains, blinds and soft furnishings!
We can ship anywhere.
There are some obvious caveats:
- If you measure wrong; it is your fault (we will guide you) but we cannot accept responsibility for miss-measured/ill-fitting items. Any rework will be charged for at our standard rate +materials.
- If you measure correctly and the items look fantastic we shall take all the credit.
- If we are to come and measure and/or fit there will be a charge for travel,time and materials.
- If you are on a narrowboat you can bring your boat to us.
- If coffee is not provided there will be an additional charge. Biscuits/cakes are optional.
On most occasions, we recommend a thermal and/or blackout lining and, dependent upon the material chosen, sometimes we also recommend an additional interlining. We will advise at the time of order.
Generally we do not need to visit to quote if approximate measurements are supplied and we provide these quotes free of charge. Variations can be requested (i.e. with/without thermal lining).
Many people do not like the lower bar to tuck their roman blinds behind when down. CurtainsFor have developed a unique, and discreet, method using magnets to hold the blind to the bulkhead if desired. In the instance of curtains; CurtainsFor also offer the option of eyelets/rings on both the top and bottom to give a much neater finish to the curtains.
Many of our fabrics come in differing colour variations enabling you to do the whole boat in the same fabric with just the colour variation – this is becoming very popular (especially when combined with other soft furnishings).
We respect your boat and, as such, we shall not screw anything to your bulkheads etc. (if they are required, such as roman blinds). We are happy to guide you, but cannot accept the responsibility of you putting a screw through a cable or pipe. We are happy to supervise/guide, provide screws and even an electric screwdriver and pencil – however, boat owners will understand that we do not know your boat, nor where the cables and pipes run.
We also have a price promise, it is a simple one: we won’t be beaten on a like for like price.
Don’t believe us? Ask us for a quote – We’ll prove it!
And remember, we are boat owners – we know the challenge of good quality and perfect fit. Let us guide you.
