  • LINING

    Lining is useful because it protects the curtain fabric from sunlight, and improves insulation when it's cold.

    You can choose from:

    Cotton twill - 50% cotton, 50% polyester

    Solprufe - 100% cotton with a special finish

    Blackout - 70% polyester, 30% cotton and specially coated to block out light, so particularly good for bedrooms

    Thermal - 52% polyester, 48% cotton and specially coated on the reverse to retain heat and keep out the cold

    Thinsulate - a sateen twill with a unique polyester microfibre layer that retains heat well

     

  • TIP

    • Before ordering, view the fabric in your room to see how it works with your colour scheme and in different lights
    • Add bespoke finishing touches to your curtains with tie backs and pelemts
    • Matching fabric is available by metre, or we can make co-ordinated cushions for you in 3 different sizes

CHOOSING YOUR HEADING

We offer three different styles of curtain heading:

Pencil pleat

● Classic uniform pleats give fullness to the curtain

Pinch pleats

● Sophisticated pinch pleats are available with or without matching fabric-covered buttons

Eyelets

● Eyelet headings can only be used with a curtain pole, and come in six colours – old copper, satin silver, brass, old gold, nickel or gunmetal

Buying Guides

MEASURING FOR CURTAINS

  • Measuring for curtains

    • Install your track or pole and then take your measurements
    • This should extend 15cm - 20cm either side of the window, and at least 15cm above

    Tips

    • Use a metal tape measure, stretchy cloth ones can give inaccurate measurements
  • Width

    Curtain poles

    • For curtain width, measure the width of the curtain pole between any finials or end caps

    Curtain tracks

    • For curtain width, measure the full width of the standard curtain track

    Curtain tracks with overlap

    • Measure the full width of the track (a) and the width of the overlap (b), then add the two together
  • DROP

    Curtains should  finish either;
    1.5cm above the floor
    15-20cm below the sill (or 2cm above the radiator)
    1.5 cm above the sill

    Pleat pole heading
    Measure from the underside of the decorative ring to where the curtain is to finish at the bottom

    Pleat track heading 
    Measure from the top of the track to where the curtain is to finish at the bottom

    Eyelet heading
    Our eyelet heading curtains will fit poles up to 3cm in diameter
    Measure from the top of the pole to where the curtain is to finish
    We add 3cm of fabric to the curtain, above the top underside of the eyelet where it sits on the pole

MEASURING FOR PELMETS

Pelmets can only be used with a curtain track, and must hang from a valance track that runs in front.

Tip

- use a metal tape measure as cloth ones can stretch

WIDTH

● Add the distance between the wall to the front of the pelmet track (a), along the front (b), and back to the wall (c)

DROP

● The ideal drop for a straight pelmet is 1/6 of the overall length of the curtains.

We offer two choices for shaped pelmets
● side length 40cm by centre length 28cm
● side length 51cm by centre length 30cm
