Roman blinds

A timeless solution that will always be stylish

Roman blinds offer the best of both worlds. With roman blinds, you get the streamlined look and functionality of a blind and the benefit of expressing your style through a huge selection of fabric choices.

Why choose custom-made roman blinds

Expert advice

To get the look and function you want, our consultants guide you through which type of blind, materials, and hanging styles you need, and take accurate measurements.

Crafted with care in New Zealand

Locally made at our workshop in Nelson, our curtain makers pay attention to small details, first checking your fabric is flawless, before carefully measuring, cutting and sewing.

Professional installation

Once your blinds are made, we have a professional team trained to install them to ensure they fit, hang and operate just right. They will also show you best practice for using them.

Simple and practical

Easy to fit and easy to use, blinds are practical and unobtrusive when space is limited.

Control light and glare

We have a range of different blinds to help you retain privacy, control light and still enjoy a view.

We have different methods of operating your blinds to ensure they’re child and pet friendly.

Operating systems

Roman blinds are made up of a structure of rods and cords that draw a fold of fabric upwards (when opening). Choose from standard cord operation, cordless motorisation or the continuous chain driven operation system, providing a safer option for homes with young children when used in conjunction with a chain tensioner.

Enhance the effectiveness of your roman blinds with lining. 3-pass blockout thermal lining offers great insulating properties. Blockout lining reduces natural light and UV rays, and interlining is a layer between the two to enhance your lining. We can also add ‘bumf’ for increased noise reduction.
