A New Angle For Hanging Curtains and Fitting Blinds

Just over 6 months ago self employed curtain fitter James Dudley started work on developing a new website aimed at linking interior designers and home owners with a network of experienced fitters across the UK.

May 15, 2009 - PRLog -- Professionally designed soft furnishings can cost thousands of pounds per window. Interior designers require professional fitters who understand the complexities associated with soft furnishings, and know how to fit everything required to the high standards their clients expect; after all, the expectations of the client and the reputation of the designer depend on it.  
During the previous five years as a self employed fitter in the industry, James heard numerous comments from designers suggesting it was difficult to find good reliable fitters. Saying they often struggled  to find someone who had the tools, knowledge and skills required to correctly fit curtain poles, tracks, and blinds etc.  
With the majority of the big home stores, including Tesco, selling home furnishings, there is also a growing requirement from home owners looking for competent tradesmen who can fit these items.  Rocket science it is not!  however, with the best DIY will in the world not everyone has the confidence, competence or experience necessary, let alone the time, to work out how to fit some of these items properly. How many people have tried, and given up because the concrete or metal lintel is in the way?
“There are lots of websites out there where you can find a plumber, a builder, or a carpet fitter” says James “But none that are specifically aimed at soft furnishings. One carpenter I know, doing work for an interior designer in Cambridge, managed to fit a curtain pole with the brackets upside down!”   MyFitter.com is the answer.
The website is easy to use, you simply place a brief description of the job on the site, together with your contact details, and professional fitters, who work in your area, will send you quotes.  It’s safe, only details of your job and your area are visible on the site, your contact details are never displayed. They are only exchanged with a fitter after you have accepted their quote.  Messages can be exchange between client and fitter to clarify the finer details and because there may be more than one fitter willing to carry out work in your area, quotes will be competitive.  
To register on the site each fitter has provided references and completed a profile page. Feedback can be left for the fitter after the job’s been completed, which helps to ensure they maintain their high standards.  You can also check feedback left by other clients before any quote is accepted.  
The site was launched in May this year and is already attracting a great deal of interest from, Interior Designers, home owners and professional fitters alike.
