I was recommended Changing Views to design and make my curtains and soft furnishings during my full farmhouse renovation and re-model.
I was keen to use someone local and independent and I’m so glad I did. Beth and Debbie are not only extremely knowledgeable and skilled at what they do but also lovely to work with, each meeting was professional and good humoured.
I had only intended to use a made to measure service for the principle rooms, but having started working with them I soon decided to hand the whole project over to them and they made every curtain and blind in the house which was over 20 pairs.
They were quick to get an idea and understanding of my style and recommended fabrics that they knew would work with my interior designs. Their product knowledge of so many fabrics is amazing. I had many meetings with them and they were always very patient and happy to be flexible with changing ideas. Their service included installing the tracks and poles, along with personally coming and hanging each curtain and blind to check everything was perfect, this complete service took a lot of pressure off me during a busy building project and they stuck to their lead times but were flexible when my build schedule had to change.
I also used them to make cushions, chair covers, window seats and bench cushions, all of which are beautiful and the quality is commented on by everyone who comes to the house. I am delighted with each curtain and blind and amazed how the pattern matching is flawless and how stunning they look. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Changing Views.
“Beth and Debbie, thank you for the beautifully made curtains. We have been very impressed with the care taken from you in all aspects of your service, from measuring to offering a wide range of fabrics and colours. Fantastic personal service and expertly fitted curtains and excellent advice with pelmet and materials choice. We also had blinds made which again were of high quality. Thank you both and your team for all your work, we cannot recommend you highly enough.”

“They gave us detailed estimates, which they stuck to. Outstanding team!”
“Beth and Debbie helped us furnish a new build house. They were great to work with – friendly, patient, funny; and full of ideas and advice on how to get the best look in the bedrooms and family rooms. They made curtains, valences, throws for the beds, pelmets and cushions – and installed and styled them all. They saved us from ourselves on a couple of fabric choices, where the weight was wrong for what we were trying to do with it. They always came when they said they were going to come and were here for as long as it took to get things looking perfect. They gave us detailed estimates, which they stuck to. Outstanding team!”
“We have found them a joy to work with for their imaginative ideas and professionalism.”
“Beth and Debbie have become old friends in the last few years simply because their work is absolutely excellent. We have asked them to make several blinds, curtains, cushions and they even recovered a headboard when they did a makeover to the windows in our bedroom. We have found them a joy to work with for their imaginative ideas and professionalism.”
