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 curtains or blinds for a window, it's a matter of colour and fabric, length and lining.
Can you give me some advice on choosing a suitable grey for my curtains?
Each shade of grey is capable of creating a different look, feel and even style of living.
Modern schemes tend to suit a cooler darker more dramatic shade like my Charcoal or Winter. Whilst vintage and classic interiors have an affinity with warm blue greys like my Clay, and a green-toned grey such as my Pigeon.
What colours can I team Grey curtains?
I love to team cool grey with splashes of my Buttercup or Saffron yellows. Keep the scheme contemporary with grey walls and furniture and then and add warmth with yellow in geometric patterns such as my Origami and Shibori designs. It is always good to add texture to a room with a velvet or wool such as my Storm and Bracken Tweeds and Honey and Thunder velvets.
Softer hues of grey such as my Scree and Clay coordinate particularly well with soft pinks such as Lily pink and Damson. My Dove grey is a warmer grey and also looks great with my stronger Saffron yellow; see my Up the Garden Path, Stockholm Stripe and spotty Pretty Maids.
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.
