Curtains can last for many years if looked

& style of your home remains as it should even if you move to a new home.
Dry cleaning curtains is by far the most effective way to remove dust and dirt from your curtains. Curtains unfortunately act as a dust trap within your home and having them regularly cleaned is an excellent way to reduce dust and allergens in your home and allows your curtains to last for many years to come.
Similarly with nets, over time net curtains attract dirtand dust and having them dry cleaned or wet cleaned periodically keeps them fresh & looking their best.
Curtain Repairs & Alterations in Kent
We can repair and alter your curtains according to your specifications. Curtains can be modelled to reflect how you would like them to look and enhance your home.
Direct sunlight, dust and aging weakens curtain fabric and the edges of curtains are generally the first area to show wear. If otherwise the curtain fabric still looks good, there may well be ways of repairing your curtains rather than replacing them.
More than just curtain alterations, something as simple as a new trim or custom made tie-backs can re-vitalise tired curtains and give them a new look & feel. And, if your curtain fabric is in good condition then why not re-use it?
Curtain alterations can be especially helpful when moving house and if done professionally as we do it, can be made to look just as good as new curtains, which is really a cost effective option.
From our premises in Hythe, Kent, we can take existing curtains and they can be shortened or lengthened, or indeed made wider or narrower. Simply measure the window space as you would for new curtains.
Add a Curtain Lining
Curtain alterations involving the addition of a blackout or thermal lining to existing curtains can change their original purpose, save energy and increase the life of your curtains.
Blackout lining is most commonly used for bedroom curtains where you want to keep out as much light as possible. Especially good for children’s rooms in the summer!
Sometimes wide windows may require 2 sets of curtains. If bought as ready-to-hang curtains, then having them professionally sewn together will provide an excellent finish.
A New Look!
Curtains can be given a new lease of life by changing headings, particularly as trends change e.g. curtain alterations to eyelet curtains are currently very popular. It is often possible to replace or add new tape or tabs to existing curtains or even change from pencil pleat to pinch pleat, providing there is sufficient fabric.
