Our contract with you
Your Order. The display of items for sale on our website or in our newsletter is an invitation to treat. When you place an order through our website, by email or over the telephone you are making an offer to purchase a product or service from us. When we have received your order we will send you an email confirming receipt of your order and an order number. We reserve the right to accept or reject your order in full or in part for any reason.
How we will accept your order. Our acceptance of your order will take place when we email you to confirm dispatch of the products, confirm they are ready for collection, or agree to provide the services. Any products or services on the same order which we have not confirmed in the dispatch confirmation email do not form part of that contract.
If we cannot accept your order. If we are unable to accept your order in full or in part, we will inform you of this by phone or email and will not charge you for that part of the order which we cannot fulfill. This might be, for example, because the product is out of stock, has been discontinued, there is an error in the pricing or description of the product, or because we are unable to meet a delivery deadline you have specified.
When Payment will be taken. Your payment will be collected at the date of order when you make the offer to purchase a product or service from us or upon confirmation of dispatch of products or completion of the services. Some bespoke products and services will be subject to the payment of a deposit. If a deposit is required, this will be taken from you upon confirmation of our acceptance of your order, and the balance will be payable on completion of the services or confirmation that the product has been dispatched or is ready for collection.
Required information. We may need certain information from you so that we can supply the products or services to you, for example, the address for delivery, and if shipping internationally, information required to complete import and customs forms. If so, this will have been stated in the description of the products on our website. We will contact you to ask for this information. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for any delay or inability to fulfil the contract caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.

Information about Products and Services
Stock and Availability. We do not hold stock of all items so while we try to ensure all information is correct from time to time items that we list for sale can become unavailable at any given moment. If you happen to order an item which is out of stock, discontinued, not available for shipment to your country or which otherwise becomes unavailable we will let you know. Sometimes items are special orders shipped from abroad and if this is the case you will be notified via email.
If you want to check availability before placing an order then please contact us on ++(0)1733 230499 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be happy to check for you.
Products and packaging may vary from their pictures. The description and images of products and packaging on our website are for illustrative purposes only. Although we have made every effort to include the manufacturer’s description and to display the colours accurately, we cannot guarantee that the manufacturer’s description is accurate or that a device's display of the colours accurately reflects the colour of the products. We recommend you order a sample to avoid any confusion regarding colour, scale of pattern, finish etc. However, due to changes which may occur in the manufacturing process there may be slight variations between the products you receive and any sample, product colour and shade may vary from one manufacturing batch to another. This will be more apparent if orders are placed at different times. This is also why we cannot accept partial returns of orders for fabrics, wallpapers or paints, and why we will not accept returns of individual rolls or paint tins.
Permitted Tolerances. All sizes, weights, capacities, dimensions and measurements indicated on our website are subject to permitted variations as follows: products with hard edges, we reserve the right for up to 5mm variations; soft foam upholstery items, we reserve the right to variation of size up to 5% of the total size; readymade curtains and blinds, fabric by the metre and pattern repeats, allow 3% of the total size or +/- 3 cm variance on sizes stated, which is the standard industry tolerance allowance
Fabrics and soft furnishings. Fabrics are constructed with various natural yarns and synthetic fibres. Often there are slubs and natural weave irregularities, which enhance the final appearance of the fabric. It should be noted that this is not a defect and is an inherent characteristic of the cloth. Any goods that require more than one width of fabric will have joins and seams. Our curtains are carefully packed and despatched. Any folding of material will cause certain creases; in the case of velvet and man-made fibre material, these will drop out after hanging. Any folding of material for prolonged periods or any items left in the packaging for long period in times may result in long term creasing or may affect the fabric permanently. Cotton prints may need a cool iron.
Wallpaper. You must follow the manufacturer’s guidelines and hanging instructions when using wallpaper. If a fault is discovered you must immediately stop using the wallpaper and contact us to let us know. If you have used any of the wallpaper before notifying us of a fault, or do not return a complete order (including all rolls of wallpaper), we will not be able to accept returns.
Services offered. Along with the supply of products we offer a full range of services, including measuring and installation services for curtains, guidance on measuring, curtain making, advice on the use of fabric and wallpapers as well as interior design services. TM-Interiors can offer you these services should you need them, but if you choose to purchase goods online from us then we accept that it is your right to decline the use of such services and simply purchase the product from us.
Making sure your measurements are accurate. If we are making a product to measurements which you have supplied to us, you are responsible for ensuring that these measurements are correct. If the measurements are not correct we reserve the right to charge you for any additional materials or time. You can find information and tips on how to measure on our website or by contacting us (ask about our measuring services).
Measuring and installation services. If you use our measuring and/or installation services, you agree to ensure that we are given access to your premises at the agreed time and date and that a person over 18 years old shall be present at all times while we are on your premises. You agree to provide us with a safe place to work and reasonable co-operation.
If you do not allow us access to provide services. You acknowledge that we are entitled to charge an additional fee if we cannot gain access to your premises under the above conditions at the agreed time. If, despite our reasonable efforts, we are unable to contact you or re-arrange access to your property we may end the contract.
Where to find the price for the product. The price of the product will be the price indicated on the order pages when you placed your order. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the price of the product advised to you is correct but mistakes may happen. We normally check prices before accepting your order, if a product's correct price is lower than our stated price, we will charge the lower amount and send you the product. If a product's correct price is higher than our stated price, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatch or cancel your order and notify you of such cancellation. All prices are inclusive of VAT unless stated.
We will pass on changes in the rate of VAT. If the rate of VAT changes between your order date and the date we supply the product, we will adjust the rate of VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the product in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.
Customs. When ordering goods from TM-Interiors.co.uk for delivery overseas you may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you; we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. Additionally, please note that when ordering from TM-Interiors.co.uk, you are considered the importer of record and must comply with all laws and regulations of the country in which you are receiving the goods. Your privacy is important to us and we know that you care about how information about your order is used and shared. We would like our international customers and customers dispatching products internationally to be aware that cross-border deliveries are subject to opening and inspection by customs authorities.
We can charge interest if you pay late. If you do not make any payment to us by the due date we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of HSBC plc from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgment. You must pay us interest together with any overdue amount.
What to do if you think an invoice is wrong. If you think an invoice is wrong please contact us promptly to let us know. You will not have to pay any interest until the dispute is resolved. Once the dispute is resolved we will charge you interest on correctly invoiced sums from the original due date.
Changing an Orders
Changing an Order. If you wish to make a change to a product or service you have ordered please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price, the delivery date or anything else which may be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are not acceptable to you, you may choose to end the contract but this may be subject to a charge.
Cancelling an Order.
You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on what you have bought, whether there is anything wrong with it, how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract. If you cancel an order or your contract in part, any associated discounts will also cease to apply.
How to end the contract with us (including if you have changed your mind). If you wish to amend or cancel an order you must contact us by phone or notify us by email.
Cancellation because you have changed your mind:
Cooling-off period. Customers in the UK and European Union are entitled to a statutory cooling-off period of 14 days for standard products and services. Details of this statutory right and an explanation of how to exercise it are provided in the order confirmation e-mail and in the Returns Policy. We can only accept cancellations pursuant to the cooling off period if we receive your email within 14 days of confirmation of dispatch or our acceptance of your order.
The cooling-off period does not apply to bespoke items, items manufactured or cut to order. Cancellation of services during the cooling off period will be subject to payment of the costs incurred by us prior to receiving such cancellation.
Cancellation where the cooling off period does not apply. Most of our products are bespoke, cut to order, or manufactured to order, meaning they are not subject to the cooling-off period and it is not possible to cancel or amend an order for these items without our approval. If we agree to your cancellation of such items they will be subject to a restocking fee, this is typically 25% of the non-discounted sale price for fabrics and wallpapers and 50% of the non-discounted sale price for made-to-measure items, items manufactured to order, and bespoke products (including curtains, blinds, cushions, pelmets and handmade furniture). If we receive written correspondence by email within 24 hours of the order being placed will not generally incur a restocking fee unless we have incurred charges or costs prior to receiving the cancellation. At all other times we will apply a restocking fee. We will not accept any request for cancellation of an order more than seven days after the date an order was placed.
Cancellation by us. We reserve the right to suspend or cancel an order if you do not pay us when you are supposed to, or if you do not provide us with the required information to fulfil an order. We may also suspend, delay or cancel an order: because a product is no longer available for supply; to deal with technical problems or make minor technical changes; to update the product to reflect changes in relevant laws, regulatory requirements or tax rules; to make changes to the product or services as requested by you. If we have to suspend, delay or cancel an order we will notify you as quickly as possible to request payment or to provide you with an updated expected delivery date, at which point you will be given the option to continue with your order or amend/cancel your order.
Faults, Imperfections and Damaged Goods
Due to the nature of the products faults and imperfections can and do occur during the manufacturing process, however if you have cut, altered or used any of the products prior to notifying us of a fault or imperfection we will not be able to accept them for return or replacement. Products damaged during shipping/transit are not classed as faulty and are instead covered by shipping/transit insurance and will be repaired.
You must inspect products on arrival. You must inspect all items as soon as they are delivered to you or collected from us to ensure they are the correct quantity and are of satisfactory quality. All claims for loss or damage must be made within 48 hours of delivery or collection. In the event of a fault, please send us full details by email to email@example.com.
Replacement and Refunds. If a product is defective in any way or has a fault, you must return the item to us, in the original packaging and in the same condition as you received them. If the faulty item is part of a batch or order we will need to receive all items in the batch or order (we cannot, for example, accept a return of a single roll of wallpaper if multiple rolls were supplied). Following an inspection by our quality control team, if we are satisfied that there are discrepancies, we will offer you a replacement or issue a refund. Any claims for faulty items must be made within 48 hours of initial delivery or collection, and all returned items must be received by us within 7 days of you notifying us of a discrepancy.
In all events, the limits of liability for any fault or defect shall not exceed the purchase price of the item plus the reasonable costs of return.
The charge for samples represents our cost for the service of providing samples to you. You may return samples but no refund will be offered for their return and you will be liable for the costs of return.
Where we agree to loan samples to you this is subject to the payment of a £50 charge (which represents our administrative fee and postage costs). If loaned samples are returned to us, in the condition in which you received them, within 14 days of delivery to you, we will provide a corresponding credit off your first order (subject to a minimum order of £500). If the samples are not returned within this period you will be deemed to have purchased the sample.
Returning products after ending the contract. If you end the contract for any reason after products have been dispatched to you or you have received them, you must return them to us. You will be liable for the products until such time as we receive them. You must either return the goods in person to where you collected them, or post them back to us at our address given above.
When we will pay the costs of return. We will pay the costs of return: (i) if the products are faulty or mis-described; or (ii) if you are ending the contract because we have told you of an upcoming change to the product or these terms, an error in pricing or description, a delay in delivery due to events outside our control or because you have a legal right to do so as a result of something we have done wrong. In all other circumstances you must pay the costs of return. The maximum refund for delivery costs will be the costs of delivery by the least expensive delivery method we offer.
What we charge for collection. If you are responsible for the costs of return and we are collecting the product from you, we will charge you the direct cost to us of collection.
How we will refund you. We will refund you the price you paid for the products including delivery costs, by the method you used for payment, less any applicable charges. We will make any refunds within 14 days of receipt of the returned goods.

Any goods must be returned in the original condition and suitable for re-sale.

All costs relating to postage for returns are the buyer's responsibility unless otherwise agreed.
We would recommend returning goods via a professional courier services such as UPS.
Fabric is cut to order, and may be manufactured in batches, as a result it can only be returned by prior agreement. It is possible that some of our supplier fabric companies may agree to accept a return, provided the length of fabric is at least 5 metres, but they will typically add a restocking/handling fee of at least 25% of the order value (prior to any discounts), and this would be deducted from a refund given to you. This handling charge covers the fact that your length of fabric has been cut specifically for you, and another future customer is unlikely to require the same length and so the fabric company will make a partial loss on the returned goods. If accepting that a charge may be applied you would like us to investigate whether a return can be accepted please contact us. The returned fabric must be received by us in the same condition as it was when it was shipped.
Wallpaper cut to your order, sold by the meter, manufactured to order, or supplied as part of a batch, is specially commissioned by you and are considered bespoke items, as are some paints if they have been specially mixed to order. Returns of any of these products is not normally accepted, but if agreed to by us would be subject to a minimum return of 5 rolls, and subject to applying a restocking fee/handling fee as set out in our terms and conditions.
All returns must notified to us within 7 days of receipt of your order using firstname.lastname@example.org quoting your name and Order ID and reason for return, and returned to us within 14 days.
All costs relating to postage for returns are the buyer's responsibility.
We can arrange for a courier collection to have UPS collect the rug from you and return to us however we would need to apply a £25.00 charge for this service.
Nothing in this Return’s Policy shall be deemed to affect your statutory rights.
