When it comes to curtains and soft furnishings it’s such an important decision. In order to get exactly the look you want, it’s best to use a professional curtain maker unless you have the skills to make your own.
The perfect fit
The perfect fit makes all the difference. Sometimes a roman blind or curtain needs to fit into a recess, and curtains often need to be the perfect length to accommodate a radiator or piece of furniture below the window.
The perfect look
Bespoke blinds and curtains open up a whole range of styles and exciting trimmings. I love adding pompoms or a fan edged trim – there are some gorgeous trimmings available and they add a little va-va-voom. They can be added to the leading edge of your curtains, across the width of your blinds or round cushions and lampshades, the possibilities are endless. You can also decide whether your curtains are sill length or puddle luxuriously on the floor.
A quality finish
When curtains and blinds are made especially for you, you can choose the right lining. A curtain maker will be able to advise you on all the different options. Good quality lining will not only lengthen the life of your curtains by protecting them from sun damage, but it will ensure the curtains look thicker and hang nicely.
Choose your own accessories
Whether you make your own or use a professional curtain maker, one of the fun things is the vast array of accessories you can add. Things like tiebacks, cushions, valances or pelmets can be made in your choice of colour and style. You can also order extra fabric to cover a favourite piece of furniture, to bring it up to date and keep it as part of your new colour scheme.
