your home when the weather’s cold. Select from the options below:

  • Cotton twill – 50% cotton, 50% polyester
  • Solprufe – 100% cotton with a super-smooth finish
  • Blackout – 70% polyester, 30% cotton. Specially coated to block out light, this
    is a particularly good option for bedrooms
  • Thermal – 52% polyester, 48% cotton. This lining is specially coated to retain
    heat and keep out the cold
  • Thinsulate –This lightweight sateen twill has a unique microfibre layer that
    retains heat well

How to measure for curtains

Install your track or pole and then take your measurements. The curtain pole should extend 15–20cm on either side of
the window, and be installed at least 15cm above the window

manufacturer Belfield Furnishings, explains how to measure your

TIP
Always use a metal tape measure, as cloth measures can stretch

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

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 track heading

Measure from the top of the track to
where the curtain should finish at the
bottom

decorative ring to where the curtain
should finish at the bottom

How to measure for a pelmet

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

Width

Add together the distance between the wall and the front of the pelmet
track (A), along the front of the pelmet track (B), and back to the wall
again (C)

Pelmet width (cm) = A + B + C

Drop

If you choose a straight pelmet, the ideal drop is a sixth of the overall length of
the curtains. We also offer two choices for shaped pelmets:

  • Side length 40cm with centre length 28cm
  • Side length 51cm with centre length 30cm
