Malthouse and Summer create bespoke, handmade curtains, blinds and soft furnishings for homes in Sussex, Surrey, Hampshire and London. We offer a personal service, which will provide you with beautiful designs individual to you and your home.

Bespoke Curtains

We purchase your fabric directly from one of our chosen suppliers, enabling us to ensure the best quality. We will visit you with a range of fabric suggestions, but if there’s a fabric that you love, our suppliers can source it for you. All we need is a rough idea of your style and we will try to help create your ideal look.

Once your fabric has been chosen, the look of your curtain depends on the heading type you choose. Our pictures show a range of styles, and we’re always happy to talk through ideas.

All of our curtains are lined with UK made luxury sateen cotton, and interlined to provide a luxury feel and weight. Our blackout lining is much softer than traditional, plastic feeling products, and this is a very popular choice for bedrooms.

In order to ensure that your curtains are shown off to their best, we offer various poles and tracks, which offer solutions to all sorts of window types. From traditional to modern, and whether on show or hidden away, we will help in finding something which works best for you.

We will then create your curtains or blinds, having discussed the most suitable design for each room.

The final stage is installation, by our trusted fitters, at a time which suits you.


Our roman blinds are handmade and lined and interlined for a luxurious and substantial feel. We can create blackout blinds which are often preferred for bedrooms. Traditional designs, where the blinds is mounted on a wooden covered batten offers a cost effective option, with the traditional cord and cleat pull system. The alternative and increasingly popular option is to mount the blind on a geared headrail with continuous chain. These are particularly useful in Children’s bedrooms, areas of very heavy traffic, bathrooms or wet environments and where the blind is very large.

All our blinds comply with British Standard safety requirements, and we will be happy to provide guidance regarding the best option for your home.
