Made to Measure Curtains

Should I have curtains in my kitchen?

Many kitchens have more than one window, so a mixture of curtains and blinds is possible.

Blinds work well around worktops and cooking areas, but if you have french doors or a single door or even a window nearby a lovely pair of curtains or a single curtain will cosy up the room and make it more colourful too.

Which of your fabrics would you recommend for kitchen curtains?

 

My Pretty Maids fabrics are very popular in kitchens, they come in many different colours from sunny Saffron to smart Scree.

Cow Parsley, part of our wildflower collection has been my most popular fabric for 20 years and is a timeless choice, again there are seversl colour choices from the subtle Duck Egg blue to warm Damson.

Should I interline my kitchen curtains?

I think curtains always look better with interlining, they protect against heat loss and look fuller.

Can you make my kitchen curtains for me?

Yes we have an excellent made to measure curtains service. Just choose your fabrics, the header style and then you just need to measure the pole or track and also the required drop (we have videos and a guide on our web site to help you). 

Our kitchen curtains, are made in the UK are hand hemmed and of a very high quality.

Here is how to measure for curtains so your new pair will fit perfectly.

How to clean kitchen curtains?

Kitchen curtains can become dirty and greasy more quickly than other curtains because of their location. Here is how to clean curtains in your kitchen to freshen them up.

How to measure up for your curtains:

A video guide to help you measure up 

Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our website. 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 and double 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 (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth)- these have to be made using 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 depending on your choice of depth, add 5cm or 10cm accordingly.

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 and double 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 (choice of either 5cm or 10cm depth)- these have to be made using a 3cm single position tape, which makes the finished length non adjustable.
