Experienced interior designers will tell you that lighting is an essential ingredient in any home and it’s no secret that by getting the lighting right, you can lift your spirits and feel much more relaxed. However, there’s a time and a place for light and you may not want your rooms bright all day long – the bedroom, for example, needs to be dark at night, while brighter rooms may need those rays filtered to prevent your room becoming too hot.  

So, how do you ensure that your room has the right amount of light when required, while successfully filtering or blocking it out at other times? The answer is by installing suitable window furnishings that work to let in light when needed, create privacy and look beautiful in your home – and that’s where a professional designer can be invaluable.

At Thomas Sanderson, the team has been designing, crafting and installing bespoke window furnishings since 1991 – that’s 30 years of expertise and experience. Whether you would like to fit innovative smart blinds, luxurious curtains or hand-crafted shutters, you can specify a bespoke design that’s made for your windows, no matter how tricky their shape.  

An expert is also likely to have ideas that you won’t have thought of, and be able to suggest materials and designs that complement your home style. Imagine opening stylish new shutters to allow dappled light to filter through. Or framing a view with luxurious custom-made curtains and soft voiles that are ideal when you want to balance light and dark. And, if you want to be able to block out light out at the touch of a button, then specialist smart-powered blinds can make life that little bit easier.
