Measuring for curtains
To be sure of the best possible fit, take time to measure your window carefully. We suggest using a metal tape measure for accuracy, as cloth measures can stretch.
Measuring for curtain drop
Curtains are best hung either to the floor, to a sill or below the sill. We recommend that curtains finish either:-
A) 1cm above the floor
B) 15-20cm below the sill (or 2cm above the radiator)
C) 1cm above the sill
Always measure in at least 3 positions across the track or pole as floors and sills are rarely level. To avoid curtains dragging across the floor or sill we recommend you use the shortest of these 3 measurements.
Pencil pleat – Classic uniform pleats give fullness to your curtain
When using a curtain track, measure from the top of the track to where the curtain is to finish. When using a curtain pole, measure from the underside of the decorative ring to where you want the curtain to finish.
Pinch pleat – Sophisticated pinch pleats are available with or without matching fabric-covered buttons
When using a curtain track, measure from the top of the track to where the curtain is to finish. When using a curtain pole, measure from the underside of the decorative ring to where you want the curtain to finish
Eyelets – Eyelet headings can only be used with a curtain pole
The eyelet will fit poles up to 30mm in diameter. The inner edge of the eyelet is set down 5cm from the top of the curtain. Measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish and add 5cm.
Choose your lining
Lining your curtains protects the fabric from sunlight and improves insulation in your home when the weather’s cold. Select from the options below:
Standard Lining – 50% cotton, 50% polyester
Blackout – 70% polyester, 30% cotton. Specially coated to block out light, this is a particularly good option for bedrooms
