Here at Design-JR, we don’t just make new curtains, we also are experienced in alterations. Whether you have old curtains that need resizing for a new window or you have bought your own curtains and need them altered to fit your home, we can help.

What Alterations to ready-made curtains can we do?

Alterations to curtain heading.

Curtains can be “freshened up” simply by changing the curtain heading, particularly as trends change. Tell us what heading your curtains have and what curtain heading would like to replace it with.  (Please note curtains must be clean!)

Converting curtains into something new.

If your curtain fabric is in good condition then why not re-use it, especially if you are moving to a new house or giving a room a make-over. With our help your old curtains can be converted into Roman blind, cushions, etc.  (Please note curtains must be clean!)
