‘Just Move In’ Service

At Sophie Sews we do not just make curtains! Our bespoke service takes the stress out of getting a property ready for tenants. This service also has the added benefit of protecting your property, as it stops tenants drilling holes to put up curtain poles or blinds.

“Barton Wyatt have been working with Sophie for the past two years and have always found her to be friendly, adaptable to our requirements and full of ideas and enthusiasm.  She regularly pops in with new samples that she thinks we would like and will quote at a moment’s notice and turn around our orders quickly.  She is extremely professional and we look forward to continuing a long and happy working relationship with her.

Whether you are a landlord or a lettings agency, we can take the hassle out of window dressings for your property. We manage the whole job for you, right from measuring windows, to supplying the window dressings, to fitting them.

After receiving a purchase order, we liaise directly with the tenant, (if already occupying the property) to gain access or pick up keys from your premises.  We measure, provide sample fabrics, poles, tracks, whatever the job may require, with a detailed quotation.  We then make, order and fit all our work.

We can make any type of window covering you require whether that be curtains, poles, blinds, tracks, pelmets, valances.

“Thanks for sending through all the images. It has made a really big difference and we appreciate the work and your professionalism.”

We have a team of makers, fitters and resource companies to bring to your rental properties, to present them in the best light to attract tenants.  We are sympathetic to the landlords’ budget and will source low cost options that are hard wearing and fit the property in question.  We aim to work on a 3-5 week turnaround time but we are also happy to quote for any jobs that have a more pressing deadline.

All our work meets the necessary safety standards that are in place and carry a 1 year warranty.

Venetian blinds for rental properties

Blinds Supply & Installation

When it comes to rental properties we recommend Venetian blinds or shutters, over roller blinds or Roman blinds as they are much more hard-wearing. Of course we can supply other types of blinds if you wish. You don’t need to worry about finding a company to supply the blinds and then another company to fit the blinds, we do this all for you, giving you complete convenience.

Wooden Venetian blinds are most popular with tenants but we can supply and fit other types of Venetian blinds too. Black out blinds are also very popular with tenants as they keep rooms dark at night while they are sleeping. They also keep the warmth in during the winter and the heat out during the summer.

We visit the property to take measurements for you and then return to the property to fit the blinds, so we know they are fitted professionally. All our blinds meet the current health and safety legislations. This is particularly important whether children are going to be living in the property or not. The blind mechanisms, chains, the way the blind is made and the fitting, all has to meet the legislation.

Off-the-shelf blinds only meet the required safety criteria if they are fitted correctly. Using Sophie Sews, you have peace of mind that they are indeed fitted correctly.

Curtains can soften a room making it more appealing to potential tenants. Let us take the stress away by completing the whole job start to finish. We are highly experienced in making and hanging curtains for the rental market.

We know which fabrics are most suitable for rental properties, we use fabrics that are hard-wearing and in a neutral colour palate to suit all tastes.

We also supply and fit curtain poles and tracks that tie in seamlessly with your décor and window reveals. If you require pelmets, valances, tiebacks, trimmings or window seat cushions, we can make and fit these too, making your rooms highly appealing to potentials tenants.

“The project was to make two sets of patio door curtains for the lounge and dining room and a pair of short curtains for the lounge with padded pelmets. There were a number of practical difficulties to overcome with light switches and furniture so that the curtains would look balanced drawn and open as well as the large and bold pattern.

Sophie has an excellent eye for details for thing that would be missed by other curtain makers. When the curtains are drawn the pattern in the curtain aligns the pattern in the pelmet. The lengths were correct first time.

The workmanship is of a very high quality particularly were the material is joined. The hanging was also carried out to a very high standard. The curtains look stunning and as a result Sophie is now working on the next few room. We would have no hesitation in recommending Sophie to friends.”
