Why Choose Made To Measure Curtains & Blinds

Made to measure curtains and blinds are the perfect choice of window treatment for a number of reasons.

1. Ready made curtains come in many different colours and designs but often dont give the variation of choice as much as fabric that is sold by the metre.  If you find a curtain fabric that you completely love, then having it made into curtains or blinds is no problem.

2. Ready made curtains and blinds are only designed to fit certain sized windows and doors. Although some can be adjusted, this is not always possible and so a perfect solution is choosing made to measure curtains and blinds where you can tailor your curtains to fit your windows and doors perfectly to the length and fullness you'd like.

3.  If you want a unique style, fullness or length then made to measure curtains are the way forward.  They allow you to choose your drop to exactly where you want it, be it just under the sill, to the radiator, or to the floor.  They also allow you to choose how full your curtains are.  If you want them less gathered to let in more light or you prefer the less gathered look then we can make your curtains like this.  Or, we can make them fuller if you prefer more gathered curtains.  Please contact our made to measure team if you have a specific look in mind.  We also offer three styles of headings on our made to measure curtains; pencil pleat, pinch pleat, or eyelet.  This allows you to choose a heading that works well with your room and style of fabric. If you are unsure what curtain heading to choose then read our blog on curtain headings.   Similarly our made to measure blinds allow you to pick the different styles so you can have waterfall or stacked depending on the finished look you prefer.   You also have the option of picking different linings and interlinings which can be useful for tailoring your curtains and blinds to your needs like using blackout and thermal lining

4.  Made to measure curtains and blinds allow you to create unique window treatments that nobody else will have. 

What To Consider

Part of the beauty of made to measure curtains is they can be tailored to look how you would like which means there are various options you need to consider.   When you order online we give you the following options to tailor your curtains to how you would like. 

Type Of Heading - We have the options of three different headings of curtains; pencil pleat, pinch pleat or eyelet.  Read our blog on diffferent types of curtain headings if you are unsure of what heading you would like.  On the pinch pleat curtains we offer a double or triple pleat option. On our eyelet headings we offer different sized and coloured eyelets to match your fabric, pole, or interiors. 

Type Of Lining And Interlining - All our curtains and blinds are lined.  This helps protect the fabric from sunlight damage and gives the curtains extra body.  We offer blackout and thermal lining or 100% cotton sateen.  If you have a particularly bright room or South facing you may want to opt for blackout and thermal lining. The price for either lining is the same.  On hand stitched curtains we offer interlining as an option. Interlining gives the curtains more body so we would recommend this for very thin fabrics like silk. 

Hand Or Machine Finished - Machine finished curtains have blind stitched hems and the fabric is machine stitched to the lining at the sides.  Our hand stitched curtains are completely hand stitched.  On velvet fabrics we only give the option of hand stitching as the fabric is best sewn by hand.  If you are unsure which finish is best for you, please contact our made to measure team.
