MEASURING FOR PENCIL PLEATED CURTAINS
If your childrens curtains are to be installed using a simple plastic track then measure from the top of the track to the required finished length, then measure the length of the track , not the window as the track may extend beyond each side of the window to allow the curtains to be pulled right back. If your childrens curtains are to be hung from a traditional pole, measure from the bottom of the curtain ring, to the required finished length then measure the length of the pole excluding finials.
MEASURING FOR EYELET CURTAINS
Eyelet curtains can only be used on a curtain pole. There must be a 5cm clearance above the top of the pole to allow the curtains to pull freely. Measure from the top of the pole to your finished length. This is the measurement we require for this style. However overall curtain drops will measure a few centimetres more, as we will add a certain amount above the eyelet when making.There are 4 different colours of eyelets to match your pole or fabric: Satin Silver/ Chrome/ Brass/ Black and all are 40mm. We can advise you which colour to choose
MEASURING FOR PINCH PLEAT CURTAINS
This type of curtain heading looks sumptuous, it’s three triple pleats, all hand made to fit the size of your pole or track. This style requires slightly more fabric, please call or email us for advice.
Usually curtains hang outside the window recess from a track or pole. So simply measure the track or pole excluding finials (decorative ends to the pole). If the curtains are to hang inside the curtain recess, you should measure this exact width. It is possible that windows widths vary so do measure the bottom of the window as well as the top. If they measure differently use the larger measurement.
We make straight or shaped valances for pencil pleat curtains only. Valances are usually 1/6th of the overall drop of the curtain. However it could be slightly longer or shorter according to your preference. We would need to know if it is going to hang on a valance track or on a wooden board.
Roman blinds can be made to fit inside the recess or outside the recess of the window. Blinds made inside the recess can be used with curtains as well. Blinds made outside the recess are used instead of curtains. First decide where you want your blind to be positioned. All our Roman Blinds come fitted on a premium chain operated track, unless a wooden baton is specifically requested. The chains are available in three colourways, white, chrome and brass.
MEASURING INSIDE THE RECESS
Measure with a steel tape from the top of the recess to the bottom in three different places: left hand side, middle, and right hand side, you may find a slight variation. Use the smallest of these measurements as your drop measurement. For the width repeat the same measuring, at three different points across the recess. Once again use the smallest measurement.
MEASURING OUTSIDE THE RECESS (KNOWN AS BLIND SIZE)
Decide where you want the blind to sit outside the window, and measure from this point across the width, making sure you have an equal distance each side of your window. Then measure from the top, where you want the blind to start to where you want the blind to be lowered to. This is the measurement of the finished drop. If you have protruding window sills, do bear this in mind. We make up the blind from these measurements, known as blind size.
CUSHIONS AND TIEBACKS
We can make cushions and tiebacks to match your kids curtains or blinds. Cushions come in two sizes 40 or 45cm with a choice of a polyester or feather filled pad. You can have them plain or with a piped finish in a fabric of your choice.Tiebacks are crescent shaped in the right size to fit your curtains.
