A Word From The Boss

WHY WE DID IT
We’ve jumped ship…..but it’s not what you think.  Far from abandoning our B2B customer base we want to support you, make it easier for you to find us, see our up to date range, see prices so you can quote, then purchase instantly without any hassle.

With more visibility to the public, we will be able to drive more people to take up your services, visit your shops, studios, showrooms or call your workrooms where you give invaluable advice – far better than we could ever dream of doing ourselves.

WHAT IT MEANS FOR YOU

  • Super easy slick buying process
  • Buy at your convenience - 24/7 ordering
  • Flexibility for increased discount subject to volume of orders
  • Fully responsive site that works superbly across all devices, whether smart phone, tablet, laptop or desktop
  • More competitive prices owing to trimmed down, more efficient administrative processes (for both of us!)
  • Track and trace orders online
  • Receive instant order confirmation, vat invoice, & estimated delivery date – usually within 5 working days, often 2-3 days
  • Draft an order or quote online by simply placing orders in your basket

In short - a far superior, speedy, accurate customer service. 

ADDITONAL ADVANTAGES

Use the website as a showcase for your customers:
  • copy and paste images to create online mood boards
  • use the snipping tool
  • or simply email your customer a link to the product 

INEVITABILITY OF THE INTERNET
The rising tide of the internet has inevitably swept us up, but the Walcot team are still here at the end of the phone when you need us.  We will guide consumers to shop with you, but of course there will be the odd few who order direct, knowing what they want.

However, I suspect the vast majority will want some guidance from a trusted interior designer or curtain maker – after all, windows and curtain poles tend to get complicated… 

WHERE WE’RE HEADING
We will continue to expand the 'extra components' tab contained within the ACCESSORIES SECTION. Many of these specialist items will be solely available for the trade to purchase through a special filter.  The more you order from us the greater potential for increased discount. 

HOP ON BOARD
I do hope you’ll join us in this leap of faith and embrace the advantages of technology.  We’ve decided it’s the way forward in this rapidly changing landscape. Hop on board and register now for a trade account.

Opinions, questions, and ideas are all welcome.

I look forward to hearing what you think, the positive and the negative.

Many thanks for taking the time to read this.

Measuring Guide

What curtain pole length do I need?

Walcot House measuring guide for curtain poles

Measure the width of your window (cm)

Add a minimum of 15cm either side, preferably more, but for full curtains or wide windows allow at least 25cm if you have the room, excluding finials (decorative pole ends).

Choose a stock length or cut to size yourself for non standard lengths (we promise it's really easy!)
    Helpful tip: Ensure there is room for your finials beyond the ends of your pole.
