Curtain Types
Made to measure curtains

Pencil pleat

One of the most simple headings. A versatile and popular style, because it works with all interior design styles - including traditional and contemporary - it is suitable for use in any room. Pencil pleat curtains can be fitted to tracks or poles. 

The name pencil pleat comes from the neat pencil-like pleats which are gathered evenly and run vertically across the top of the curtain. Pencil pleat curtains are adjustable as the drawstrings in the curtain tape need to be pulled in order for the curtains to be gathered to the required width.

Pencil pleat curtains are made by sewing a heading tape onto the back of the curtain. This allows the pleats to be formed once the curtains have been gathered.

Key Features of Pencil Pleat Curtains:

  • Suitable for use on tracks or poles
  • Versatile – can be hung on their own or under a valance or pelmet
  • Works with most styles of fabric
  • Can be made to suit any curtain width or room height
  • Well suited to period homes

 

Double pinch pleat

A great option for an elegant look. Pinch pleat curtains are popular for both modern and traditional rooms however double pinch pleat curtains are generally better suited to a more contemporary look.

Pinch pleat curtains are made to fit the exact length of your curtain pole or track, for a polished look it’s better if the curtains sit underneath the pole.

Double pinch pleat curtains have small groups of pleats which are separated by flat sections of fabric. The pleats are permanently sewn into the top of the curtains. Curtain hooks are inserted on the back at each pleat, so the curtains are hung by the pleats with the flat parts of fabric in between. Pinch pleats curtains tend to hang in uniform folds.

Key features of Double Pinch Pleat Curtains:

  • Can be used on tracks or poles but usually look their best on poles
  • Are suitable for use under pelmets and valances but generally look better on their own
  • Can be used with most styles of fabric
  • Suits any curtain width and room height
  • Well suited to contemporary and traditional homes
  • Hanging height is fixed

Triple pinch pleat

For a luxurious look well suited to traditional homes,  a triple pinch pleat curtain is a great option. Triple pleat curtains do require more fabric as a 2.5 x fabric fullness is needed to achieve the optimum results but the results are fantastic.

Similar to double pinch pleats, triple pinch pleat curtains have small groups of pleats separated by flat sections of fabric. The curtain hooks then hang the curtains at each pleat, leaving the flat fabric in between. The result is curtains hanging in uniform folds. 

Triple Pinch Pleat Curtain Key Features:

  • Can be used on tracks or poles but usually look their best on poles
  • Are suitable for use under pelmets and valances but generally look better on their own
  • Can be used with most styles of fabric
  • Suits any curtain width and room height
  • Well suited to contemporary
  • Hanging height is fixed

 

Eyelet curtains 40mm

A popular choice for contemporary rooms. Eyelet curtains are hung on poles, the way they are threaded on to the pole creates a simple wave effect. We offer 40mm eyelets which fit a 40mm curtain pole.  We find this size is optimum for ease of movement when opening and closing the curtains. 

Eyelet curtains need to be measured slightly differently. When measuring the drop for eyelet curtains, measure from the top of the pole to where you want the curtains to finish, then add 3.5cm. This allows for the space from the eyelet to the top of the curtain.

Why Choose Eyelet Curtains?

  • Suitable for use on poles only
  • Are suitable for use under pelmets and valances but generally look better on their own
  • Can be used with most styles of fabric
  • Suits any curtain width and room height
  • Well suited to modern homes
  • Hanging height is fixed

 

Wave curtains

Wave curtains are a great option for bi-fold or sliding doors. A wave curtain is a stylish solution for contemporary rooms. Wave curtains are suitable for use on tracks or poles but the chosen track/pole must be compatible with wave gliders.

The appearance of a wave curtain when hung is similar to an eyelet curtain but offers a neat and contemporary finish. The fabric hangs directly below the track in a continuous and uniform style.

The ‘wave’ effect is achieved through a specially designed heading tape and a wave glider-cord. Wave curtains are measured differently to a standard curtain and the width of the curtain is measured by the full track length.

Why Choose Wave Curtains?

  • Can only be used on curtain tracks that have wave gliders
  • Minimal and modern
  • Are suitable for use under pelmets and valances but generally look better on their own
  • Can be used with most styles of fabric
  • Suits any curtain width and room height
  • Well suited to modern homes
  • Hanging height is fixed

Voiles

Voiles can be woven from different materials, for example cotton and linen. This creates a sheer, lightweight curtain. Voile fabric tends to be thinner and more see-through. This limits anyone’s ability to see in from the outside but still allows in the most amount of light.

 

Curtain Linings

We have 5 curtain linings available to choose from:

  • Standard ivory or white lining
  • Domette interlining - adds body to fabrics
  • Blackout lining - for maximum reduction of light
  • Thermal lining - to offer better insulation
