Style By Gillian
"I have very successfully referred the wonderful mother and daughter team - Lucia and Elise from More than Curtains now numerous times. From lovely french blinds for a Hampton style makeover, to full sheers and privacy for a new home. They get it right and are extremely good value. Often they attend the home of my customer after I have been there.
This month however we had a very tight turnaround - a new home which required attention in time for a housewarming - so we had one hour with other trades plus the real estate agent hovering in the background - as the property was yet to settle !! - but the true professionals they are they measured and helped select exactly what the clients wanted - plus they very cleverly reused some sheers and adapted other drapes.
Love collaborating with these two - highly recommend More than Curtains."
“The service provided by Lucia and Elise was both personable and professional. Everything went to schedule and the result was astounding. Thank you ladies for your part in making my apartment look a million dollars!”
"More Than Curtains installed a fabulous curtain in my theatre room. I decided to go with this company because I saw it had very good reviews, and they certainly lived up with expectations. Lucia and Elise were very warm and friendly and gave very good customer service. The product they delivered was just as good at a reasonable price. Overall, I was very satisfied with their service and I can find no fault."
"Sincere thanks to Lucia and Victor for designing a fabulous shutter for my cathedral style window. We had a lot of discussion pertaining to this window and the final result is fabulous and the loft looks sensational."

I love that there are options of quality and price available, and appreciate the honest views on the different products. Some of the options we chose we wouldn't choose again, because they just don't last as long, but we were advised this would happen, and made a couple of budget choices on these windows. Service is impecable - everything delivered as promised, phone calls always returned promptly, and so helpful at generating solutions. So refreshing to find people great at their job. Thank you so much."

Our windows look fantastic, high-end and very professional... a win-win outcome for all! Many thanks."

I had also found a particular fabric that I liked and they were able to accommodate my choice at a very competitive price. They completed the job exactly on time and were very good with the communication during the process. The end result is excellent and the rooms look fantastic.

They took their time and asked what we wanted, which at the time we thought was going to be shutters, but after looking at their great range of fabrics and styles, we actually settled on curtains and blinds Even my husband, who was keen on shutters, liked them, when they arrived on time. Communication as to progress was great and we found Lucia a pleasure to deal with”

Elise took one look at the space and said I know exactly what will work here - she hit the nail on the head we absolutely love our new blinds

"I thoroughly enjoyed working with Lucia & Elise. They were extremely professional, full of excellent recommendations and advice, extremely reliable, always on time for appointments and each project was delivered on time and on budget! My husband and I renovated most of our home and replaced every window covering in the house. I had ideas of what I would like and my husband had some ideas and this is where Lucia's experience came to the fore. By listening to what we were each saying and understanding the overall look we were aiming for with the house, Lucia & Elise came up with fantastic suggestions for each room including shutters for the front of the house, white blinds and light linen white curtains for the 3 living areas (including larger stacker doors at the rear of the house) and double blinds for my daughter's room. The whole look goes brilliantly with our light grey walls and basic Hamptons theme and each piece is beautifully made. This was a totally enjoyable experience thanks to Lucia, Elise & team and I am more than happy to recommend them to anyone."
