If you've ever measured curtains for yourself then you probably know how tricky it can be, especially if you have an irregularly shaped or large window. Even worse, if you take the wrong measurement, you could be stuck with curtains that are too long, or that don't meet in the middle!
Made to measure curtains from Curtains & Blinds In London are the ideal solution, taking away all of the hassle and uncertainty and giving you a fabulous look and a perfect fit.
Buying curtains can throw up so many questions because of the sheer amount of choice available today. We've made the process easy with our handy guide below, and we are always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
Let's start with heading types. What are they, and what is the difference between them?
Heading types refer to the heading of your curtain. That is the top part of the curtain that is attached to a track or pole. There are essentially four types of heading types. They are:
Eyelet - These headings have holes finished with metal eyelet fittings and these are easily fitted onto a curtain pole with rings.
Pencil Pleat - This is one of the most traditional heading types, and is used for curtains that fit onto a pole or track with rings.
Tab Top - These are one of the most versatile of curtain headings and can be used with most curtain poles without any rings.
Pinch Pleat - If you are looking for a tailored and sophisticated look, a pinch pleat heading is the one to choose.
Now that you've decided on heading types, it's time to consider lining. Curtains without lining can look inferior, will not block out light well and can also let in draughts. Good quality lining, on the other hand, can ensure your curtains hang perfectly, will block out all light and keep your rooms warm and cosy.
Here are some of the lining types we have available:
Blackout - For children's bedrooms or when you just need a little more privacy, blackout linings are the perfect solution.
Standard - This is the cheapest option for linings, and it is perfect for ensuring privacy without darkening a room completely.
Fire Retardant - These do exactly as their name suggests, and are perfect for commercial properties such as public houses and hotels, and also for the home. They offer more protection from fire spread thanks to their fire retardant fabric.
