Curtain Frequently Asked Questions
If it is an extra wide window you may have to buy an extra curtain pack.
The width relates to the area that the pair of curtains together will cover. The reason for this range depends on the personal preference for how much gather there will be when the curtains are hung. For example, a pair of curtains in the size 230-330cm will fit a track range from 230cm to 330cm with a track of 230cm having a more pleated effect when hanging than on a 330cm track which will have less fullness and pleats.
Curtains are sold in pairs. Sheers are sold as one per pack.
We offer up to 10 readymade sizes across a variety of curtains however we don’t currently offer custom or additional sizes outside of these.

Thermal lined curtains are coated with a soft acrylic thermal suede giving heat and light retention properties as well as keeping your home cooler in summer. The thermal coating creates a barrier between the window and your room which prevents air from entering or leaving the room. Floor length curtains give added insulation by trapping heat between the window and wall space.
Block out thermal lined curtains create extra insulation with 3 layers of acrylic thermal. The centre layer of black coating blocks out light and helps keep your home warmer in winter and cooler in summer by preventing air from entering or leaving the room. Floor length curtains give added insulation by trapping heat between the window and wall space.
Triple weave curtains are self-lined, woven with 3 layers the centre layer is black creating room darkening and heat retention properties as well as great drapability. Floor length curtains give added insulation by trapping heat between the window and wall space

Yes, our curtains have joins in selected sizes.
Curtain heading refers to the style of pleat of finish (for example Pencil Pleat or Eyelet) at the top of the curtain.
This refers to the style of gathering at the top of the curtain. A tape is used to create folds that are gathered closely together to resemble a row of pencils laid side by side. They are created by pulling cords on the tape and knotting the cords off at each end to secure the pleats in place. They can be used on curtain rods or tracks. The pencil pleat curtain is our most popular heading style as it allows you to adjust the gathers to the fullness you prefer and gives more flexibility when selecting the size for your window.
Our range offers Pencil Pleat in every style and eyelet headings in a wide range of styles.
You can hang them on a wire – carefully slit at each end of the tape and thread the wire through or you can hang them from a track. (You will also need to purchase hooks to do this). NB. It is important that the cords at one end are securely tied off before pulling cords from the other end.
In most cases 20cm on either side of the window. However, for larger curtains you might want to consider extending this to 30cm on either side.
