We can make your made to measure curtains just how you would like them. Each of our designer curtains are beautifully made in our traditional workshop by professionals, hand finished with great care and attention, and delivered to your door within seven weeks.
Our bespoke made to measure curtains are produced in the UK and can be made in a choice of seven different heading styles and four lining options.You can create your own unique look by choosing a contrasting leading edge or flop over frill. We recommend that curtains are interlined to improve insulation and to create a more sumptuous look. Your made to measure curtains may be lined in a second complementary fabric - this works particularly well with French doorsand ground floor windows where you can see into the house from the outside. You can also choose from standard or blackout lining options.
If you choose a second fabric to line your designer made to measure curtains, please be aware that the lining fabric will be vulnerable to fading.
With the help buttons at each stage of the process we will be able to guide you easily through the steps. The next step is to choose your desired fabric for your made to measure curtains.
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.
