John Charles Interior Design - Curtains & Pelmets, Poles & Tracks, Blinds & Shutters
Curtains: Curtains are arguably one of the most important features in a room, and certainly the one element that can transform a room instantly. Curtains, and indeed all types of window treatment, are our speciality.
Whether your taste is towards the simple elegance of tailored curtains with hand pinch pleated, goblet pleated or eyelet headings, or towards more ornate treatments like pelmets or luxurious swags and tails, we will provide the right look for you and your home.
Pelmets: Our pelmets range from the crisp contemporary look of a straight padded band, to the gloriously sumptuous, deep, shaped and trimmed look more suited to a traditional house.
All of our curtains are fully lined and usually interlined, hand sewn and weighted, made with the highest care and expertise by our own curtain makers. They can also be blackout lined, which is especially suitable for bedrooms. We carry fabrics from all the major design houses and manufacturers, along with some interesting and unusual offerings from less well known designers, some of which are exclusive to us in the Birmingham area.
Poles and Tracks: We offer a truly vast range of poles and tracks to perfectly complement our curtains. Our poles come in all sizes and in a wide variety of finishes and diameters, ranging from 19mm satin nickel for a lightweight contemporary sheer, to 75mm wood or metal for a really stunning effect!
Our metal poles are available in anything from wrought iron to high gloss chrome, including some very smart and unusual finishes, such as black graphite.
As well as the whole gamut of wood finishes, our wooden poles can be painted to match an exact colour or hand finished in a wide variety of ways, including the use of gilt and silver leaf. We can even supply a fully working 55mm or 63mm wood pole to go around a bay window.
Most of our curtain tracks are corded for ease of operation and to preserve the beauty of your curtains. We have a curtain track for virtually every situation, including a fully double corded bay window, expertly bent and fitted on site. We can also provide motorised tracks for a sense of sheer luxury or, when fitted with a timer, to give added security when you are away from your home.
Blinds: A blind can be a solution in itself to a window, or can complement and enhance other window treatments. For example a smart Roman blind can be all you need to dress a contemporary window, or can look great under a pair of full length dress curtains.
All of our Roman blinds are made using a concealed stitching method, meaning that there will be no visible lines of stitching across the face of the blind, and more often than not supplied with a chain operated track system for ease of operation and durability. Our Roman blinds are fully lined (unless you are using a sheer fabric) and often interlined or blackout lined. We can even have your blind motorised, by either the traditional hard wired method, or by a long lasting battery operation for ease of installation.
We carry a vast range of other types of blind, all of which are made to measure. Metal or wood Venetian blinds are available from 16mm wide slats right up to 70mm slats in a huge range of colours, textures and finishes.
We also supply Roller blinds, Vertical blinds, Plisse and Duette blinds. The latter two are made from pleated or honeycombed fabric, and provide an energy efficient and smart solution to windows and conservatory roofs. Facette blinds are a clever new innovation that allows both a sheer and a solid option in one blind.
Wood Shutters have made a resurgence in the last few years, and are available in both natural and painted finishes to fit most windows, including bays.
