What colour would you describe your Teal as being?

There are of course many different shades of blue as with all colours; from the cooler shade of Cornflower and Indigo, to the softer shades of Sky Blue and Speedwell. Teal however, takes its name from a bird named the 'Common Teal', which has a Teal stripe on its head. As for its colour, Teal is a mixture of blue and green. It can be mixed with white to make it lighter, or with grey for the reverse effect.

Teal curtain fabric is warmer than my Cornflower, Indigo and Denim, which contains a little bit more yellow. It turns towards the greens making it a popular choice for warmer curtain tones in day rooms, like kitchens. Some of my Teal fabrics include Up the Garden Path, By the Sea, In Full Flight and Life and Eternity Ground, to name a few! If you're looking for coordinates for these fabrics, I would recommend my Pretty Maids or Stockholm Stripe designs. 

What other colours do my Teal made to measure curtains work well with?

There are many other colours you can team my Teal curtains! Lime Green, Raspberry red, Pumpkin & Marigold oranges, as well as Damson pinks are just a few examples that spring to mind. These are all warm colours which complement Teal blue fabric so well. We combine these colours already in the Pretty Maids and Stockholm Stripe designs. 

When choosing your Teal blue Made to Measure curtains, blinds or upholstery, try mixing larger prints with spots and stripes, all colourfully coordinated to bring your home to life. My Cow Parsley print is quite popular, where there sits a Pigeon coloured butterfly on the head of the wildflower. This Pigeon can be used as a secondary colour in your room, thus introducing more designs to your scheme. An example and good coordinate would be the Pretty Maids - Pigeon, Teal and Winter.

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.
