How do I know how to measure up for my dining room curtains?
You can find a useful video talking you through how to measure up for both curtains and blinds by clicking here.
If you simply cannot decide which is best, blinds or curtains, why not use both? Doing so provides privacy and gives you design options you will not have with blinds alone, adding more colour and pattern.
What style of curtains suit a dining room?
For your dining room window curtains you have an opportunity to create a more elegant and formal pair of curtains; from the choice of headings I would advise using the more structured double or triple pleat headings and I would strongly recommend adding a more luxurious and warm interlining.
If you would like to add curtains to an open plan living space needing both kitchen and dining room curtains in the same area you can make more of a statement with bolder colours and designs. I would suggest my timeless Cow Parsley, also the new Apples and Pears and Fruit Garden designs would look really lovely in a dining area. Keep the colours flowing through the spaces e.g. when using Fruit Garden in Damson and Kale on your kitchen blinds use May Blossom in Damson from the New Orchard Collection for curtains.
Can you suggest a colour scheme for a dining room?
When choosing a colour scheme for your dining room, which is often more of an evening room, warm colours such as my Raspberry, Cranberry, Terracotta, Peach and Damson are the perfect colour choices and make really beautiful curtains. A touch of red in the dining room is said to increase appetite and infuse the setting with liveliness.
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.
