Merchants and Makers: Giving your home an upgrade for spring

We hear from Penny and Alan at Merchants and Makers, who tell us what they can offer for anyone thinking of making changes to their home interior style this spring.

What is your focus for 2023?

We are excited about the year ahead, there are some amazing products and fabrics coming through that we are sure will transform spaces. We have seen a rise in the uptake of remote controlled window treatments, especially when there are multiple blinds in a space.

One of your specialities is curtains! How can people keep their curtains and other soft furnishings looking fresh with the seasons?

A great way to ring the changes and prolong the life of your curtains is to swap out your thick winter curtains in spring for some soft, floaty unlined fabrics, which diffuse light and give privacy, but are not heavy or insulating. This simple change can dramatically transform your interior and give you that seasonal refresh and uplift. This then gives you the perfect time to give your winter curtains a gentle hoover ahead of storing them carefully, and before you put them up again you can replace any worn or missing curtain hooks.

The same seasonal change can be done by swapping your sofa cushions for something that reflects the spring and summer months - you will be surprised how uplifting this can be. These seasonal changes prolong the life of your soft furnishings, it is renewing and refreshing and can be so much fun!

And what about those people looking to move house this spring?

Moving house is a great excuse to update your style and look at the latest fabrics and treatments with fresh eyes. We can help you to consider the options that are right for your new home and help you select from a wonderful range of fabric styles and prices.
