You can buy curtains and blinds from almost anywhere in Singapore. These stores offer a wide array of various textiles, colors, and patterns for you to choose from. Many of the curtains that we have in their homes come from these stores.
Where to Buy Curtains and Blinds in Singapore
Malls and Departmental Stores
Malls and departmental stores along Orchard Road including ION Orchard, Takashimaya, and Plaza Singapura sell branded curtains and blinds for a premium price. However, if you’re looking for more affordable options, then we recommend shopping at Mustafa Centre in Little India. A lot of homeowners go to this place when they want to purchase affordable curtains. If you live in a small apartment or condominium unit, buying from this place is a safe bet.
Shopping for curtains on online marketplaces such as Shopee and Lazada is another viable option, especially for the budget-conscious. However, we must caution you that quality is never a guarantee. Product photos may vary from the actual wares so don’t expect too much. If you just moved into your apartment or condominium unit and need temporary curtains or blinds quickly, then we recommend you to go shopping online.
Homegrown Specialty Stores
There are plenty of homegrown specialty stores all over Singapore that sell curtains and blinds. There are four good reasons as to why you need to buy from homegrown stores.
First, they offer consultancy services to help you determine what kind of curtains or blinds suit your needs from their own collection. We here at the Curtain Expert actually have our own brand of blinds: the VB Zeep blinds. They’re like Ziptrak Singapore version. Our proprietary blinds can alter the character or mood of your home or office with just a push of a button. Apart from having our own collection, we also offer bespoke services to our clients, which includes installation. You won’t get to find this level of expertise and customer service from departmental stores or online stores.
Second, they ensure that they sell quality items at all times. Our VB Zeep blinds in particular, are made of materials from Australia, China, and France. Our store is in charge of putting all the materials together to create VB Zeep blinds. This allows us to monitor and maintain the high quality of our products. Craftsmanship is something you cannot put a price on.
Third, they know the market well. Singapore residents’ need for curtains differ from other countries because of the country’s climate and environment. Homegrown stores are more likely to offer curtains or blinds that offer protection from the hot sun, torrential rains, and the dreaded haze.
Choosing where to buy curtains and blinds in Singapore depends on your needs and budget. If you live in a small space and have a tight budget, Mustafa Centre and online marketplaces are the places to go to. But if you really want to invest in high-quality items, it’s best to go bespoke with our brand, The Curtain Expert.
