Today we respond to an enquiry to fit some tracks our customer had purchased herself. We happily agreed on a fitting fee and lo and behold when we show up we find she had only gone and purchased the lean mean tracking machine 🙂 … the 3900 corded.
Our expectations were resting with probably an ultraglide or something from the shelves of John Lewis but this lady knew her stuff. Anyhow we got on with the job a clean and tidy installation and curtains hung on the straight up rails . Face fit with extra support brackets and corded on one side for a pair of even curtains. The flat finally got its windows dressed and its looking very good for its age 🙂 ( its a new development !)..hehe
Thank you to our customer who reached out to us and said that she was so impressed with our service, workmanship and speed. We will take that with a smile 🙂

Today we enjoy fitting the FES easyfold system from forest group for a customer in Chiswick.
Our client was after the wave look without spending a fortune. We happily recommended the Forest FES system for a simple easy to glide curtain rail. It looks minimal and classy in design and also a delight to fit. One was made to order with two internal bend. Supplied from the marvellous Evans Textile – Sales Limited. A ceiling fit option was best suited here with floor length curtains you cannot fault it!
Brilliant result for a brilliant customer…Smiles all round 🙂

Today we are commissioned by Wonder Stitches to install a number of roman blinds and a pair of curtains in London’s Battersea area. Fitting blinds is a breeze most of the time and we really enjoy the process. They all come equipped with a side winder system made from Jones interiors which we consider to be the best in the business. In addition we have child safety law to consider and make sure loop cords are all fitted over 150cm from the ground and safety secured.
For the curtains we went ahead with a two bend Silent Gliss 1280 uncorded heavy duty track. It really doesn’t get any better than this. A ceiling fit track fits like a glove with curtains hanging pretty below. We dress the curtains appropriately and admire the result. A brilliant fitting day with top class workmanship makes it a treat to go to work. Thank you Wonder Stitches.
At Curtainfitterind.co.uk we take child health and safety very seriously! In our commitment to make every single installation child safe, we make sure that our customers are fully aware of the danger and implications of lose loop cords. Thus we take our time to explain how to safely operate all products installed by our team.
Please make sure that your fitter does not leave any loop cords hanging lose without the proper installation of safety clips. In addition any cord loops hanging below 150cm off the ground is illegal practise and can put your children at risk! In our support for the make it safe campaign we urge everyone in the industry to pass the message on.
Make it safe!

Our customer based in Shepperds bush called in to enquire about having a curtain rail fitted as she has just refitted brand new windows in her home. We quickly arranged for one of our fitters to carry out a free survey on site to discuss possible options for Mrs J.
We recommended an integra regular metal corded track made to measure with two internal bends to be fitted under her pelmet board. Worked a treat! Now the customer is able to hang her new curtains comfortably thanks to this new track fitted by our team. It is suitable for medium to heavy curtains up to 16kg. We also suggested we cord the track on both ends in order to help with the distribution of the weight, making for a more smoother ride.
We are very pleased with this result and even more so after hearing our customers reaction. “Excellent Job”! – to quote exactly 🙂
Its our pleasure, we are here to serve.

Have you ever stopped and wondered about what drives you to do what you do? Do you know what is the difference between leverage and drive?
No matter what it is that you do in life, whether you are an athlete, a writer or a businessman, there is an emotional side behind everything we do. But most of us look to ignore this component since we are so busy getting the job done! Admittedly we have been guilty of this in the past, so we are not pointing any fingers…:)
However, if we were to just pause and pay attention for a moment, we will discover that this is secret that not only fulfils us, but fuels us as people. There comes a point when if you do something again and again without any meaning attached to it, you lose interest. You lose your drive! Unfortunately, this a common story for far too many people who seem to lose their drive and purpose in their work.
Great wisdom traditions teach that the purpose of life is always to be found in service. If you can find a way to better the lives of other people and look to offer yourself for something which serves the greater good, you will be living your purpose.
At CFL we believe that although our work may not seem like much from the outside in we see it different. We see it as much more than just a means to an end. Our work goes beyond just measuring and fitting curtains, blind tracks or poles. We don’t see ourselves as just handymen who fit curtains and blinds…instead we notice the little things and see our efforts as a contribution in some way, be it small or big…it doesn’t matter. But how you ask?
Well first we understand that every time a customer picks up the phone to ring us they have a reason for doing so. They are looking to resolve or improve a situation in their lives. Some have just moved into a lovely new home and want to create their dream living room or bedroom! Others have entered a new chapter in their lives and wish to re-create their environment to reflect their new bliss. Yet some may be in dis-comfort with their current situation and require a better solution be it a repair to existing systems or recycling old ones! Not to mention our service to the trade including award winning interior designers & architects. No matter what the specific reason for reaching out to us, we see it as our duty to serve. We understand that our customers have a need to better their lives in some way.
This is what fuels us, this is the driving force behind everything that we do as a team. Our mission is to ease and improve the lives of our customers, even if it is in a small basic way. You see everything in life contributes even the littlest things, just making someone smile is a contribution. We are passionate about our work simply because we have found meaning in it. It’s no wonder why we love doing what we do!
We hope this will inspire everyone out there who currently seem to have lost their drive, wondering where it has gone! Look for meaning in what you do. If you can’t find a meaning, then create one. If you can find a way to serve others and contribute their wellbeing, you will be living your purpose.

We believe that reputation follows you no matter how hard you try to dodge it. It is paramount to us that every single day when we put on our work gear, we must deliver better than the day before. As the saying goes ‘you’re only as good as your last job’. Henry Ford said “You can’t build a reputation on what you are doing to do”. We understand this means that one cannot speak of great effort that is yet to take place in order to compensate for lacking standards in the present. Our team is dedicated to building a reputation that speaks for itself because our mission is to make a difference through excellent service. Great wisdom traditions teach that the purpose of life is always to be found in service. This is how we live.

If you want to hang curtains, but don’t want an unsightly track,these ceiling fix poles are a new innovation from Walcot House. Using a flush fix solution the pole fixes right up to the ceiling, leaving no gap, with all the brackets hidden in a groove which runs along the top of the pole. Brilliant isn’t it!
This idea is perfect for installations above bi-fold or sliding doors, the ceiling fix pole has been designed specifically for those instances where there is no space to fix to the wall, yet a track just won’t do. Considering that nowadays most new build properties have very limited options for those of us who still prefer to hang curtains on a lovely decorative pole, finally there is hope. We’re loving this,and will be recommending to our clients.
