You can find a useful video talking you through how to measure up for both curtains and blinds by clicking here.
Children's bedrooms and playrooms can look really wonderful with beautiful curtains. New curtains can brighten up and transform any children’s bedroom, playroom or nursery.
If you simply cannot decide which is best, blinds or curtains in a child or baby’s room then try using 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 curtain heading do you recommend for children’s bedroom curtains?
You can choose from different headings although I prefer a cottage pleat header for children’s playrooms and bedrooms, being soft and pretty. It is also worth mentioning lining here, interlining helps insulate and keep the room warm and blackout lining can be added to discourage early morning waking...
How to choose the fabric for children’s curtains – recommended patterns and designs:
I can still remember the fabric in my childhood bedroom when I was a little girl. Children are so observant and have to time to gaze and day dream so it is important to give them pictorial fabrics to feed their wonderful, creative imaginations.
My eldest daughter Rose drew all the animals in our design Wild and Free, found on cave drawings and Etruscan cases, drawn during many visits to the British Museum. If that won’t feed the imagination of little ones I’m not sure what will..
And, my younger daughter Flora drew the fun bird for Bird Hop. Both designs are available in a range of great colours from Saffron yellow to Mallow pink and Teak blue. They aren't exclusively children's fabrics so 'age ' well with your child.
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.
