Made to Measure Curtains and Blinds
Here at Applemoon we have extensive experience in all aspects of soft furnishings and we take great pride in delivering hand finished curtains and blinds to an exceptional standard. We take into account the whole room when advising on which window treatment will be suitable. The furniture layout, the lighting, ceiling height, wall colours, existing furnishings, and how the room functions will all have a bearing on the suitability of the soft furnishings. We are also extremely sensitive to the individual tastes of each client and take care to put forward ideas that are complementary.
How it works:
Come and visit us at our shop in Westergate, Chichester, and we will help you to browse through all our fabric and wallpaper books. We can provide fabric samples to be delivered to your home or you can borrow fabric books to help select the right fabrics for your home. We also have a huge selection of home magazines and other brochures to help you make your selections.
OR...we can visit you in your home to take measurements for you, chat through in more detail what is required, and make suggestions for colours and styles that may be suitable for you. This is chargeable at £50 but will be refunded against your order.
We will then provide you with a comprehensive quotation to cover everything we have discussed and the timescales required to complete the project. We try to add in as many optional extras as is suitable to the project so as to give you a completely transparent idea of the budget which may be required. Fabric samples can be included with the quotation if required.
We have two professional curtain fitters who can install your curtain poles and hang your curtains too if you would like a complete service. Having a professional hang and dress your curtains ensures that they will be looking their absolute best.

* "Thank you Kim for the most beautiful curtains, blinds and cushions you made for my new home. Your advice on fabrics and style was invaluable and I now have exactly the look and feel I was hoping to achieve. The quality of your work is superb and has been greatly admired by my ‘sewing’ friends. You have set incredibly high standards for us to try to achieve in our own work. We have been helped hugely in this by attendance at your fabulous, fun, informative workshops where we learnt new skills as well as techniques to enhance existing ones – and enjoyed a delicious lunch! As a novice sewer, my daughter particularly benefited from the curtain making course, and has already made five pairs for her beautiful house in York. We can’t wait to return!
