About Dressing Rooms

Owned by Karen Rainford, Dressing Rooms is a friendly independent business based in West Sussex. Karen has over 16 years of experience as a curtain maker in Sussex and has made numerous complementary soft furnishings for bedrooms, living rooms, office spaces, dining rooms and other home areas.

Dressing Rooms are happy to use your own fabric or we can supply fabrics from most fabric houses, including James Hare, Ian Mankin, Design Forum, Romo, Osborne and Little, Kai…..the list goes on! They like to champion British companies and fabrics and all of the linings we use are top quality UK manufactured.

Dressing Rooms pride themselves on providing a flexible service tailored to suit your needs, from a single window to project managing your whole house and anything in between.

“My recent experience with Dressing Rooms has been very positive, I felt that Karen listened to what I wanted & gave excellent advice on how to achieve it, the quality and construction of my curtains are superb and I would happily recommend the company to my friends.” (Mr C, Henfield)

We love Dressing Rooms Because…

Karen has been designing and creating handmade bespoke curtains, blinds and soft furnishings for 20 years. She likes to offer a friendly flexible service, tailored to fit her client’s needs. Whether it’s a single window with your own fabric or a full house to project-manage Karen enjoys it all, but her favourite is working on larger projects, (whole house) from scratch; choosing fabrics, styles and design, working with the client and getting to know them, or their builders! Karen finds it very satisfying taking the whole project from the beginning, through making, fitting the completed curtains or blinds and seeing the finished results fulfil her client’s vision!

Karen also works with various interior designers bringing their own visions to life and has done some commercial work in a hotel and a care home.

We would like to thank Karen Rainford of Dressing Rooms for her excellent work in dressing eleven windows and a bed-head over the past six months. She provided a clear quotation, answered numerous queries with great patience, was flexible and innovative in her approach to our ideas, paid good attention to detail, dealt with any hiccups promptly and kept to her original quote. We are very pleased with the actual workmanship and hanging of the curtains and blinds as well as the fitting of the poles tracks and bed-head. (Mrs G, Cranleigh)
