Design styles.

Making Curtains for more than 50+ years means we’ve made and perfected every style imaginable. Here’s just a selection of some of our more popular styles.

Wave Fold Curtains

Also known as ‘S’ fold this style has a smooth, evenly distributed symmetrical ‘wave’ formation that’s created using a special track and tape heading. The vertical lines elongate walls, making the space seem taller and larger. Easy to operate, it offers a contemporary, relaxed look giving an understated aesthetic favoured by interior designers. Suitable for Blockout and Sheer Curtains.

Triple Pinch Pleat Curtains

This smartly tailored, classic look is ‘pinched’ at evenly spaced intervals in groups of three. Suited to traditional homes or formal rooms, it creates a beautiful fullness and stacks neatly to the side. Ideal for limited wall space. Suitable for Blockout and Sheer Curtains.

Double Pinch Pleat Curtains

This version of the Pinch Pleat is ‘pinched’ at evenly spaced intervals in groups of two. Suited to traditional homes or formal rooms, it is not as full as a Triple Pinch Pleat and offers a neat appearance on large windows. Suitable for Blockout Curtains.

Pencil Pleat Curtains

Pencil Pleat or Gathered Curtains feature folds of fabric that are tightly gathered to create small pencil sized pleats. This style allows you to gather the fabric to your desired fullness. Less structured than the Pinch Pleat, it creates a soft and informal look. Suitable for Blockout and Sheer Curtains.

Reverse Pleat Curtains

A simple, structured style with a tailored appearance this Curtain style hangs below a decorator rod and has a larger stack back compared to other styles. Suitable for Blockout Curtains.

Eyelet Curtains

The Eyelet style features metal rings that are pressed into the top heading of the Curtain. Teamed with a decorator rod it offers a casual look with less stack back. Perfect for smaller windows where you need to take advantage of the natural light. Suitable for both Blockout and Sheer Curtains.

Fabrics.

Fabric is an essential part of choosing Curtains. Each fabric has its own unique characteristics and performance levels so it’s important to choose the best fabric for your lifestyle. We offer an extensive collection of contemporary and traditional Curtain fabrics for light, warmth and privacy within your home, office or commercial space.

 

 

Banding + trims.

For a decorative finish or splash of colour our design team can add banding or trims across the top, bottom or sides of your Curtains. Opt for a complementary fabric for a subtle finish or a contrast fabric for a bolder statement. Pairing sheer and heavier weight fabrics together is also a beautiful way to add texture and visual appeal.

Do you have a room with very high ceilings? Banding is perfect for this. Simply by banding another fabric to the top or bottom of the Curtain, you can achieve the required length for your Curtains without introducing any additional seams. Banding across the top of a Sheer Curtain in a heavier fabric is also a great way to disguise a wall or the top of a blind that may be behind. 

Design options.

Width.

It always good to aim for wall to wall if there is wall space available or if not, go as wide as possible. This means when drawn open the stack back covers less of the window therefore maximising your view and natural light.

 

Height

Where possible go high and wide. Curtains can be installed on the ceiling, known as ceiling fit or fixed to the wall, known as face fit. It’s best to go ceiling to floor or as high as you can go if there is ample wall space. Doing so adds the illusion of height to windows and rooms while also having practical benefits such as blocking out light and increasing insulation.

 

Length

What length should I choose? It’s very much a personal choice but for light control, privacy and insulation reasons, not to mention aesthetic appeal, we always recommend full length Curtains where possible. We can design to any length but our three standard length options are Float, Kiss and Puddle.

 

Stacking

Probably not a term you’re familiar with but it basically means the amount of space the Curtains occupy when in a fully open position. Our Curtains can be designed to be centre opening with the Curtains stacked on both sides of the window when drawn open or with a one way opening with the Curtains stacking back to either the left or right side of the window when drawn open. Curtains can also hang freely to draw to any position on your Track or Rod. It all comes down to what is the most practical and functional design solution for each window.
