Real Wood - genuine timber, Venetian blinds available with 25mm or 50mm slats in ten colours - woven or standard ladder tapes complement the natural wood. 

Perfect Fit Frames - the blinds are contained within the 'Perfect Fit' frame which fixes to the glazed area and moves as one with the window or door - a firm favourite with Guernsey customers. 

Venetian - manufactured in DWA's workshop using the latest computerised machinery, the aluminium blind collection is a popular interior fitting, combining privacy, light control and colour balance for the modern home. 

Roman - choose from DWA's large range of curtain fabrics or from their woven wood collection. 

"We have had many requests to cover peculiar shaped windows and our Research & Development Department has always come up with a solution. In fact, our reputation for design and building strange shaped blinds has spread to the UK and Europe." - Graham Morris (Manager)


DWA's carpets come from some of the most renowned manufacturers in the world to ensure outstanding performance with quality you can see and feel. The top quality range of brands include Axminsters, Wiltons and naturals with a multitude of plains and patterns to choose from. You could even have a bespoke carpet made from your own design. 

Carpets are warm, soft and comfortable and most can be laid over underfloor heating. If you are searching for a particular colour to complement your interior design DWA can arrange for a colour sample to be sent to you, for your approval, prior to placing the order. With the latest colour spectrum technology any shade can be produced, a service which only takes approximately eight weeks from ordering to completion.


DWA has many different sized rugs on display and in stock ranging from hearth rugs and runners to rugs suitable for large lounges. There are also numerous alternatives to choose from in various brochures on display. The large range of traditional and contemporary designs in the showroom are continually updated and are all suitable, with an appropriate underlay, for placing on carpets or wood floors. 

Wood & Laminate Floors

The beauty of a wooden floor is its uniqueness - no two trees are identical so the grain in the flooring will always be a little different. This stylish, ageless, warm, durable and low maintenance flooring offers a cleaner environment and you can choose from a large range of parquet, solid hardwood, laminate or engineered flooring. Wood floors have become increasingly popular in the past few years and DWA possess the necessary experience to give you a great finish, having supplied and installed them for over 50 years.  

Vinyl Flooring - Amtico & Karndean

Vinyl flooring material is designed to be used anywhere. DWA has a great range to choose from and with Amtico and Karndean flooring you can create any style to suit your home or commercial space including stone, marble, ceramic and wood effect finishes. Custom made to fit your room, these vinyls will not warp, crack, chip or splinter, are warm under foot and easy to maintain.

Hard Flooring Materials

Safety flooring materials can be installed where slip resistance is paramount, either at home, perhaps in the bathroom, or at work. DWA can supply and professionally fit many different qualities for varying performance requirements including some with antibacterial treatments built-in. There are a huge array of colours and patterns available in various products including rubber, cork, linoleum, vinyl and sports flooring. 

"I have always felt it important to be able to offer our clients in Guernsey a huge choice of products which include the very best brand names" - Brian Sarre (Chairman)

We always buy our rugs from DWA. The range they offer is fantastic suiting all types of rooms from bedrooms to lounges and hallways. They are long-lasting and durable and we have always found them to be exceptional quality. Plus if they don't have it in stock they can quickly order it in for you.

DWA have supplied blinds throughout our bungalow and we have been really pleased with the end result- keeping the bright sunlight out and also giving us privacy from any prying eyes! From measuring, to pricing and fitting, we were impressed with their professionalism. Definitely a local company to recommend.

In October 2008, said about DWA

Over the past years we have had DWA cover all our floors with carpet, wood and Amtico. We have been extremely pleased with the service and installation, even when we had to delay the fitting. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone. Blinds have also been installed by DWA, and they work really well, cutting out hot sunshine as we face south, also providing us with privacy from the neighbours!
