Supply and fitting of new curtain pole (stainless steel)
Measure and supply one pair of curtains lined with blackout material and with steel eyelets
 
Cost: £910

"I am not the best person for choosing colour and it was marvelous to find a firm that would bring samples to the house where Zoe's professional advice was excellent. She took a lot of trouble with a good number of samples. I had good advice too with regard to the blind which was expertly fitted. The pole was expertly fitted too.
I would thoroughly recommend this company. "

Window poles, and curtains for 3 bedrooms
 
Cost: £2710

"Excellent personal service. Kept us in the loop regarding the making of the curtains we wanted.
Company owner attended with her pole fitters to ensure all was done correctly. Then came and fitted/hung finished curtains herself. Also gave us, at no extra cost, 4 cushions of the same tartan design as the curtains. Could not fault her. "

Fitted made to measure blinds throughout my house, including wooden venetian blinds, roller blinds, perfect fit blinds and blackout roller blinds.
 
Cost: £1300
 

"This was the second time Iíve used Acorn Shutters & Blinds and Iíve been very impressed both times. From initial enquiry, to measuring up and explaining the different options available through to installation, the team were very professional and did a great job. The blinds are really good quality and they make my home feel and look much better. All my old blinds/fittings were taken away and the place left tidy. I would not hesitate to use Greig and his team again and am delighted with both the service and products."
