You can find a useful video talking you through how to measure up for both curtains and blinds by clicking here. When it comes to choosing blue curtains or blinds it's a matter of colour and fabric, length and lining.
Which shades of blue do you have in your fabric range for curtains?
Blue is a favourite colour for many people and is the most preferred by men. It calls to mind feelings of calmness and serenity, research has shown that people are more productive in blue rooms!
There are of course many different shades of blue as with all colours; from the cooler shade of Cornflower and Indigo to the softest shades of Sky Blue and Speedwell. Cornflower has a 'blue jeans' tone and more of a presence, looking wonderful in a larger room and hallways.
My Teal blue is a warmer blue with a little bit more yellow duded in turning it towards the greens and making it a popular choice for blue curtains in day rooms such as a kitchen: Up the Garden Path, Bird Hop and Wild and Free designs all come in this colour along with stripes and spots to coordinate.
Next comes a lighter tone and my favourite, a Chinese blue called Powder Blue. My Speedwell, Slate and Sky Blue are soft and gentle tones making pretty blue curtains for a bedrooms and bathroom especially exemplified in Fern and Dragonfly and my first ever design Feather and Egg. I have added a little yellow to my Speedwell...see my 'In Full Flight, Pretty maids and Fruit Garden designs.
For very soft grey blues, we move into the ever-popular Duck Egg. This colour is quite hard to describe but wonderful to live with. My Cow Parsley print is the most popular in this shade.
What other colours do blue curtains go well with?
There are many other colours you can team blue up with: namely Saffron yellow, Raspberry red, Tangerine and Pumpkin orange and Damson pinks. These are all warm colours which to compliment the cooler blue so well.
We combine these colours already for you in the following designs in particular: Dawn Chorus, Pretty Maids, Stockholm Stripe and Lapland Stripe.
You can also add in the second colour through upholstered furniture, cushions or even in a fabric covered lampshade or bed quilt. All these we can make for you in our Made to Measure service.
Let's get started by selecting your fabric…
How to measure up for your curtains:
Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our web site. It is advisable to fit your pole or track before ordering your curtains. Your pole or track should ideally extend 30cms on each side of the window so when drawn back light is maximised and at least 15cms above the top of the window to block out as little light as possible again. Please use metric units only when measuring.
Width: If you have a pole, measure the distance between the finials. (A)
Finished Length for pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length using a curtain pole we recommend allowing between 2cms and 5cms above the eyelet on the underside of the curtain ring, depending on how much of the pole and rings you wish to hide. From the measurement you choose above the eyelet, measure down to the bottom of the hem (see B & C) and that is your finished length measurement.
Finished length for cottage pleat - these have to be made be a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor and add 5cm for the cottage pleat.
Finished length for flop over frill - these curtains have to be made with a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor. Don't add any extra for the frill, we will do that.
Please note, we will add 25cm for hem allowance.
Width - If you have a track, measure the total length of the track, including any overlap where the curtains meet in the middle.
Finished length: For pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length of your curtains using a track add 1cm above the track (to hide the track) down to the bottom of the hem. (D)*
Finished length: For cottage pleat curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and add 5cm for the cottage pleat.
Finished length for flop over frill curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and don't add any extra for the frill as we will do this.
Please note, we will add 30cms for hem allowance.
