Our History

The Blinds Experts

Our History

Tidmarsh has been crafting bespoke blinds, curtains and home furnishings for more than 180 years. We have nearly 200 years of experience in handmade, bespoke blinds, so we really are qualified to call ourselves the blind experts.

Georgian, Regency, Victorian and Edwardian architects and designers have left a most formidable legacy of styles. Few, if any, blind makers are as well qualified as Tidmarsh to recreate them. For, in many cases, our parent company Tidmarsh & Sons helped to create the originals.

Tidmarsh Blinds

Charles Tidmarsh was an established wheelwright and carpenter from Gloucestershire. In 1828 he moved his family to Islington, London, where he used his skills to make a living.

Part of his work was concerned with window shutters and “rowller blinds” – which soon became the main part of the business. Since those days, the company has passed from father to sons and daughters, and so on.

Tidmarsh is now run by the fifth and six generations. That’s 190 years of experience!

We’ve supplied blinds and shutters to all types of properties, including palaces and ships, both in the United Kingdom and throughout the World!

In 1933 we even supplied window blinds to Her Majesty the Queen – earning us the award of the Royal Warrant.

Today, we combine this experience with cutting edge technology and passion for our craft to ensure that we truly are the experts in our field.
