What style of curtain heading do you recommend when choosing curtains?

Here are some helpful tips on choosing the heading for your curtains:

Double and Triple Pleats

These are decorative curtain headings fitted to each window with permanent sewn-in pleats, for a luxurious, tailored look. Recommended for more formal rooms, maybe a dining room or smart sitting room. Double pleats are a little more contemporary than triple pleats. Both have the benefit of several different hook positions, allowing you to alter the length of the curtains if necessary and can be used with poles and tracks.  It is important to carefully measure your track or pole as the curtains are made to an exact fit. It is also easier to put up the pole or track before measuring if possible.

Pencil Pleat

This curtain heading consists of a 3 inch tape with three rows of string threaded through it for three hook positions to suit all types of track and pole.

It is so called because fabric folds are gathered closely together when the strings are pulled up to resemble a row of pencils laid side by side. This heading has the benefit of being adjustable in the width if you move house, or want to  adapt them to suit a different window in your house.

     

Cottage Pleat

This heading will give you an informal gathered look, ideal for use in a kitchen or bedroom.  A cottage pleat heading can be used with tracks or poles and can be gathered to suit the required width of your window.
In these photos you will see the heading created with a 1″ tape and a 2″ frill above the tape. This is my favourite heading being soft and romantic.

How do I decide how to line my curtains? 

All curtains come with a good quality ivory lining and you can add a warm interlining for insulation and a more luxurious look. Should you wish to eliminate light, we also offer blackout lining.
