Cool soft furnishings and curtains.

Hi All

i am new to the forum, just had a flick through all the comments, me and my wife are planning to come over to tuzla to finish our furnishing of our apartment. We already did all the big stuff last year but survived with sheets from home and rolerblinds.

We need to buy some nice but plain bedding (everything we saw last year was real 1980s colourfest). and some nicely tailored curtains.

ANY recommendations welcome.

Ta

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

Welcome to the Forum Max. I hope you find all the information that you want on here. Lots of people who I know buy their bedlinen in UK as they find the Turkish styles and patterns too highly coloured. Just remember if you do this that the sizes are different from Turkish ones.

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

Hi Max. I have always found it difficult to find bedding that is not too garish over in Turkey. There is however a shop in the oasis centre in bodrum that stocks really lovely oft furnishings for bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchens but it is on the peicey side. Personally I bring out duvet covers and sheets from home. There are lots of places in bodrum that sell nice curtains, voiles etc.....one shop is situated opposite the Oasus Centre so u could kill two virds with one stone .

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

It will be cheaper and better quality if you took your bedding from uk.. That's what we do, curtains try a local person for it but if u chose to go for blinds that's gonna cost u alot.. I would go for the turkish style curtains which is cheaper..

An example we got in didim 220tl for normal rollers for 1 window if u got curtains n net Turkish style 150

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

We bought all our sheets, blankets etc from Bodrum Havlu, the lady is english Avril and her Turkish Hubby Mehmet, they have such a wide range and if anything special required Avril will order it in for you. From memory, as it's 5 years ago now their shop is on the road as you head towards Gundogan on the dual carriegeway on the left hand side but coming from Tuzla area it would be on your right handside. They were very competetive prices, with the bigger stores too. The blankets and throws are gorgeous, and not garish at all.

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

If you have a car, a trip to Ikea in Izmir is a recommended. Bedding is very reasonable. I always get my towels from Bodrum Havlu.

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

From UK was our best alternative, my wife found it really difficult to find something nice, I got fed up going from pillar to post (me driver, not shopper)

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

I brought all my sheets and pillowcases from the uk --i stick to plain white cotton percale which has a higher thread count-more expensive but lovely to sleep in in a hot summer.As for towels i did bring some spare ones over from uk but you can get lovely ones here in turkey--a local shopkeeper has some thick turkish towels that are fantastic quality--the downside is that the thicker the towel the longer it takes to dry and in the winter you dont want wet washing hanging around so i just bought some reasonable ones from the local market which are cheap and perfectly adequate.

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

We too bring our own bedding from the UK - Turkish designs are just a little vivid for me LOL!!

We had our curtains done at the curtain shop opposite the Oasis centre and they really are a good job.

Re: soft furnishings and curtains.

I'd suggest going to Metro in Bodrum, this is th same as Makro wholesalers in the UK, you can get a day passs and they sell plain white hotel quality (plain white) bedding and towels. You will also be abl to pick up hotel chinaware here, but it depends on the quantity that you want as some items only come in bixes of 12. Also check out the large warehouse between the Old Artev office and the Bogazici causeway road, this is a hotel wholesalers but allows anyone to buy in any quantity.

For curtains there are a coupleof curtain shops (perde) on the way to Metro but before the Bitez turn (D330). You could also try Turnalar furniture in Mumcular.
