Inline with safe working practices during the current pandemic, we are unable to accommodate a full compliment of staff. Thus our order to delivery time frames are changing: DIY = 15 working days from order date / COM = 28 working days from receipt of material.
Like you our main priority is to stay safe and get through the next few months.


Below some common questions and answers.
What height are your headboards

We offer two standard sizes either 60cm – 23½ inch or 76cm – 30 inch, But we know that does not suit everyone so we can cut to any size you require.
