Covered Fascia  or  Covered Lathe

A covered fascia is a very small pelmet that hides the track and blocks the light gap between the track and the wall
especially useful if you are seeking the elusive "blackout" (see bottom of page)

Usually projecting no more than 5-10cms from the wall with a depth of 4-5cm, they are custom made to suit the purpose
( if you want blinds behind curtains you require a little more projection )

Although usually covered in the same fabric as the curtains, contrast fascia and tiebacks can work

Below are several examples of covered fascia installed by Changing Curtains, if you would like any further information please do get in touch

I say "blackout" is elusive because we cannot eliminate all light from your environment.

Has anybody ever screamed at you, from a distance of approx 1 metre
" I can see the hand in front of my face. Do you call this blackout ? "

We cannot achieve " the total exclusion of all light " in full daylight, with a pair of curtains. We do our best. Sometimes we do quite good


Changing Curtains do offer a full service from measuring through to installation, which may be available in the following areas. North London Central London East London Canary Wharf Docklands N1 N2 N3 N4 N5 N6 N7 N8 N9 N10 N11 N12 N13 N14 N15 N16 N17 N18 N19 N20 N21 N22 N23 North West London NW1 NW2 NW3 NW4 NW5 NW6 NW7 NW8 NW9 NW10 NW11 NW12 NW13 SW1 W1 W2 W8 W9 EC1 EC2 EC3 EC4 WC1 WC2 City or West End Alexandra Park Angel Archway Arkley Barnet Barnsbury Bayswater Belgravia Belsize Park Borehamwood Bounds Green Brent Cross Brondesbury Park Burnt Oak Bushey Camden Canonbury Chalk Farm Childs Hill City Cockfosters Colindale Colney Hatch Covent Garden Cricklewood Crouch End De Beauvoir Docklands East Finchley Edgware Edmonton Elstree Enfield Finchley Finsbury Park Fortis Green Friern Barnet Golders Green Gospel Oak Hackney Hampstead Hampstead Garden Suburb Haringay Haringey Harringay Harrow Harrow Weald Hendon Highbury Highgate Holborn Holland Park Holloway Hornsey Islington Kensington Kentish Town Kilburn Kingsbury Kings Cross Ladbroke Grove Maida Vale Marble Arch Marylebone Mill Hill Mayfair Muswell Hill Neasden Notting Hill Old Street Palmers Green Ponders End Primrose Hill Radlett Regents Park Shenley Southgate Stamford Hill Stanmore Stoke Newington St Johns Wood Swiss Cottage Tottenham Totteridge Tufnell Park West End West Hampstead Westminster Whetstone Willesden Winchmore Hill Wood Green Woodside Park
We cover Central and North London as far as the M25 plus areas such as Cheshunt Colney Heath Cuffley Hatfield London Colney Potters Bar St Albans Waltham Abbey Waltham Cross and Welwyn Garden City, which are just beyond the M25. By limiting our area we feel we can offer a better level of service.

Outside of these areas we may be able to install for you, it would depend on what was required, please contact us to discuss your requirements.
