Deliveries / Installation

Although every effort is made to deliver at the given time of day, an hour either side of the given delivery time must be allowed. Customer’s must allow adequate time to be at home for installations and must check with the staff as to what the likely time frame will be.
In the event that the order cannot be completed due to fault or error on Creative Curtains & Interiors LTD 's part this does not automatically entitle the customer to financial compensation.

Made to measure curtains, blinds and all other soft furnishings
As these items are specifically made to your requirements they cannot be returned unless proven to be faulty.
Underestimation or Missing items
In the event that we have underestimated on quantity of fabric or items have been missed off a delivery the additional fabrics or items will be chargeable if they were not on the accepted quotation. Creative Curtains & Interiors LTD will pay the delivery charges but the customer will pay for the additional meterage or items if they were not quoted for.
Poles, tracks and tiebacks & wallpaper
These are ordered in specifically so are non-returnable.
Fabrics such as silks and linens often have natural characteristics. Creative Curtains & Interiors LTD cannot accept complaints or offer refunds for such natural occurrences.
With both printed and woven fabrics every effort is made to avoid irregularities, occasionally they may occur. Fabric is not completely stable and it cannot be taken for granted that, whether printed or woven, the pattern will be completely ‘square’ on the cloth. Fabrics are not guaranteed against colour fading. Unless otherwise stated in the product description we advise that all fabrics are dry cleaned.
Shrinkage / Fabric appearance
Most fabrics tend to shrink when laundered, cleaned or to a lesser extent whilst in use, in certain atmospheric conditions. Atmospheric conditions may vary in different weather and seasons. We cannot control these conditions and therefore cannot accept responsibility for movement or the general appearance in curtains or blinds when hung. Heavier fabrics may react to changing humidity; and the control of humidity in a room remains the customer’s responsibility.
Please note that for curtains we pattern match from the bottom up and for blinds from the top down, if you require anything different from this please let us know.
Roman blinds with blackout lining
Please note when ordering roman blinds with blackout lining we use the blackout lining as an interlining and it is sandwiched between the face fabric and the lining fabric. To secure the three layers we use a ‘stab stitch’ which can sometimes cause light to filter through where it has been stitched.
Carriage will be charged on individual fabric and wallpaper orders at a standard rate £13.00 including VAT.
We sell fabrics at the recommended retail rate. We will not offer our making up service on discounted fabrics purchased on the internet or with customers own fabrics purchased elsewhere.
