When Beth upped sticks and moved across Nottingham to be in a good school catchment area, she wanted things sorted, fast, in time for the new school term. And that included dressing the front-facing bay window for privacy.
Beth’s front room is one of two receptions room in her new home, with another snug-cum-dining-room at the back of the house. Her family tended to congregate in the back room before they installed Roman blinds as they felt like the world could see their business. Now, it’s a completely different matter…
“With the living room overlooking the street, we knew we needed blinds for our bay window pronto. We’d used Web-Blinds in our previous house and had been really impressed with the service, so decided to go with them again.
“We ordered samples, and ended up choosing a really simple off-white Roman blind fabric which matches the walls perfectly. We didn’t want to take away from the period features, like the brick fireplace.
Beth referred to the guides on Web-Blinds for help – they lay out exactly how to measure for blinds, and take the worry about of wielding the tape measure!
“The blinds are great. They were really easy to measure for and then when they came, they were easy to install too – my husband had them up in no time at all. Now they’re up, this is the room everyone wants to be in!
“Our house is still a work-in-progress. The fireplace is being used to store cardboard boxes at the minute, but we’re definitely getting there. It’s the little things, like hanging our art, that we need to get round to now.
And as Beth says, it’s the little touches that make her front room. A radiator cover complements the period features, a rug adds a pop of colour, while a cushion sporting ‘ey up mi duck’ grounds the home firmly in Nottingham!
