    some will insist on coming to your flat to measure, cos they want to make sure that the curtains will fit, but sure these might be a little bit more expensive than the cheapest ones. if you are sure you can measure correctly & drill the holes in the correct places by all means you can just get the curtains done, esp if you
    re on a tight budget. i am always afraid that something will go wrong cos i'm no expert, i prefer to get them to do everything & pay a little more.

    Thank you all so much!! My husband is not that great at DIY etc (well nor am I!!) so given how clueless we are maybe best to ask them to come and help us for this time. I really do appreciate the helpfulness of all of you on this forum

    The last time I ordered curtains from Wanchai I just gave them the measurements of the window. When the curtains were ready, they delivered them and installed the rods as well. I think I paid an extra $100-200 for the rods. Curtains were around $1000. If you're up to going to Shenzen, they have pretty much the same fabrics as Wanchai. Cost is $250/300.

    Also have a read through this thread on Geoexpat

    Thanks for this - earlier thread was also very helpful. Can't get to Shenzen so might well give Mong Kok a try too if I can find Mrs Chung!

    Hi everyone,
    Reporting back on an extremely successful visit to Mong Kok - Jade Deco on Fa Yuen streeet is truly amazing. An even better range of fabrics than we saw in Wanchai -- the quotation they gave was 70%lower plus they showed up within 24 hours to measure up and seem extremely professional overall. We are expecting our curtains in a couple of weeks and I will let you know if they are not what we expected but overall I would highly highly recommend them as well - ask for Kevin if Mrs Chung is having a day off! Thanks to all for the great recommendations..
    Geobaby is such a super resource :-)

    Hi Snagito, how did the curtains turn out? Are you pleased with them? For what you have paid?
