Dunelm is committed to selling only high-quality products but we understand there may be a time when you need to exchange or return something you've bought.
We will willingly refund or offer an exchange on any unused product returned within 28 days of purchase, provided you can show us your receipt and the product is in its original, re-saleable condition.
Please note that all refunds will be made back to the original tender type. For your protection, refunds to credit or debit cards will only be processed if the cardholder is present.
If you don't have your receipt, we will still be happy to exchange any product you have purchased from us, or to offer you a credit note. The exchange or credit note will be to the value of the returned product's lowest retail price in the last twelve months.
Please note that credit notes are valid for two years and are redeemable at any Dunelm store, and that they may not be used for the purchase of gift vouchers.

There are a number of exclusions from our standard returns policy (detailed above) due to the nature of some of the products we sell.
Made to Measure products
Made to measure curtains, blinds and accessories are custom made to your specification. We strongly recommend that you follow our Made to Measure Buying Guide before committing to your order. Your order is subject to a 48-hour cooling off period. During this time it will not be processed and you may cancel your online or telephone order by calling our Customer Services team on 0844 346 0022, or for purchases made in store please call the store directly. You can find their number on the top of your receipt or by using the Store Locator. After this 48 hour period we will begin to make up your order and any cancellations after this point will only be refunded to a maximum of 50% of the order value.
Fabric & ancillary products
As all fabric is cut to length for each individual order, once cut we cannot refund fabric orders. That's why we provide a FREE sample service which we strongly recommend you use before placing your fabric order.
Mattress toppers or protectors, duvets, pillows, throws and blankets
For health and hygiene reasons we are not able to accept returns on these items unless unopened and sealed in original packaging or if faulty.
Made to order upholstered sofas and chairs
Our upholstered furniture products are custom made, therefore they can only be returned if faulty or not made to the specification given. We strongly recommend ordering a free fabric sample first to ensure colour and texture accuracy. Viewing fabrics on a screen does not offer a true representation, as monitors vary in brightness and colour saturation. After placing your custom made order with us, there is a 48 hour 'cooling off' period. During this time your order will not be processed and you may cancel or amend it by calling our Customer Services team on 0844 346 0022. After the 48 hour 'cooling off' period, we will begin to create your made to order furniture. If you wish to cancel after this point, you will be charged 100% of the total value of the order.

Food, drink and other perishable items
Under the Consumer Protection (Distance Selling) Regulations 2000, if you buy online or by phone, your consumer rights entitle you to a full refund if you request one within 7 working days of receipt. This includes any delivery charge. This cancellation right does not apply to the products listed as exclusions above unless they are faulty.
If you wish to cancel your order, please follow the process for returning goods described above.
In all cases your statutory rights are not affected.

If any item that we deliver to you arrives damaged or is faulty, then we will happily replace the item for free or refund the item. Please note that we will only refund the delivery charge if the whole order is damaged or faulty.
In store purchases
If any item we sell is damaged or is faulty, then we will happily replace the item for free or refund the item.
Please note that all refunds will be made back to the original card used to make the purchase.
For items bought on-line or via the telephone, and returned via Collect+ or a collection, your refund will be processed when the product is received by us in its original packaging and in a re-saleable condition, with a completed returns label. This may take up to two weeks.
For items returned to a Dunelm store, the refund usually takes around 3-7 working days to reach your account, depending on how quickly your credit/debit card company processes the refund.
For items purchased online using PayPal and returned to store for a refund you will be issued with a credit note.
If you don't have your receipt or despatch note, we will still be happy to exchange any product you have purchased from us, or to offer you a credit note. The exchange or credit note will be to the value of the returned product's lowest retail price in the last twelve months. Please note that credit notes are valid for two years and are redeemable at any Dunelm store, and that they may not be used for the purchase of gift vouchers.
