A window is one of the main feature points in any room. It may be the style of window treatment or a particular eye-catching fabric that is the point of inspiration for the whole room.

When choosing curtains you will first need to consider the shape of the window and how much light you want to let in during the day. Then you will need to determine the length of the curtain whether it full or to the sill. You also need to choose on what to hang the curtain, a track or a pole.

Curtain Headings

Different types of headings can be used to create different styles. Here are some examples :-

a: Triple pleat - also called french pleat. It is most suitable for plain frabrics to show it off. It can be left plain at the base, have buttons or bows.

b: Triple pleat with Buttons - tripple pleats can be left plain at the base or have buttons or bows.

c. Goblet - simular to a triple pleat without the pleats. It is best used on long heavy curtains.

d. Pencil pleat - suitable for most curtains, usually 3 inches in height.

e. Double pleat - suitable for most curtains, usually 3 inches in height.

Heading Tapes

Cottage style - 1 inch tape set down from top to inches.

Standard 3 inch - Pencil tape.

Deep 6 inches - pencil pleat.

Tie Backs

Tie Backs can add to the style and flair of the curtains when open.

Roman Blinds

Roman Blinds are the most classical style of the different type of blinds. They are very versatile, fitting into the smallest window space. They are very good for bay windows and cover very little glass even when hung in the window recess. Roman Blinds are also very economical on the amount of fabric required.

Roman Blinds can be used as a full or part window treatment, for instance a pelmet and/or dress curtains can be added to give a very elegant look.

Pelmets or Valances can be added to to help dress the window and enhance the curtains or blinds, making them taller or shorter.

Pelmets - are firm and can give a more formal or modern look to a window. These can be trimmed with fringe, braid piping or fabric trim.

Pelmets are usally hung from a plemet board like a mini shelf.

Valances - are soft gathers, much like a small curtain, and can be shaped, piped, trimmed of frilled, to give a softer effect to a room. Valances can be gathered by the same type of heading as curtains and really need to be the same fullness as the matching curtains.

Valances are hung from a valance track.

Swags and Tails - add a very formal and lavish look to a window, but much more material is required.


Cushions, bed throws, quilts, tie backs

I can make all sorts of accessories with any spare material that you have or just order a little extra. These accessories really dress the rest of the room and effortlessly link a bed or a sofa with the window dressing.
I can make cushions of all shapes and sizes, box cushions, bed throws and even quilts.
Tie backs can also be made with the same or complimentary fabric to help dress the curtain when pulled back.
