Beautiful Designer Made to Measure Curtains UK

View Fabric

We can make Made to Measure green curtains and blinds using our designer fabric to your exact requirements, to fit any window size or style. Each of our bespoke curtains can be beautifully made for you by professionals in our traditional workshop based in the UK. They are hand finished with great care and attention and delivered to you well within eight weeks.

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 green curtains or blinds it's a matter of colour and fabric, length and lining.

What shades of green do your fabrics come in and how do I choose?

We have long been programmed to feel relaxed around the colour green it is after all the colour of nature. We associate forest green with peace balance and harmony.

As with all colours green comes in all sorts of hues.

My softest shade, Apple Green is beautiful mixed with a bright Raspberry in my very first design Cockerel and Spot with its coordinating Stripe and Dash, Down To Earth and Paisley Ground.

Kale and Olive are warmer greens, they team beautifully with pinks and reds, see Fruit Garden, Apples and Pears, and Pie in the Sky.

Lichen is a serious green dark and all encompassing, it suits as library, study, hall or perhaps a teenage boy’s room.

Between green and blue there are some beautiful shades namely Smoke and Water. Smoke is one of our best-selling colours and works particularly well with Limestone and Peach. See designs Pretty Maids, Apples and Pears and Bird Hop.

Let's get started by selecting your fabric…

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help to measure up 

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.

Poles:

WidthIf 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.

                                   

                                           

 

Tracks

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.
