We strongly recommend you do not book any fitter or lay out any cost for fitting until you are in receipt of your products and they have been checked.
Specification of goods
- Whilst we always endeavour to accurately portray imagery on our website, due to different PC, tablet and mobile settings, the colours and shading of colour may appear slightly different to the actual colour of the item. We do offer a free sample service which we strongly advise you use. We are not liable for any issue relating to differences in colours should you choose not to use the sample service.
- Due to the majority of our products being from a natural source, there will inevitably be slight differences with different batches. We cannot be held liable for this. We strongly recommend you buy the required products all at the same time so as to minimise this potential problem.
- All measurements should be taken in centimetres and not inches. As a company we only deal in centimetres. Whether you place your order over the phone or on the website we will presume you are giving us the measurements in the format we require, consequently we have no liability should you give us measurements in any other format than centimetres.
