WHAT IS THE FIRST THING I SHOULD DO WHEN SELECTING CURTAINS?
One of the first things to look at is the header, whatever type of curtains you choose. Whether you prefer blackout curtains, voile sheer fabric or tie-backs, curtains can come with different types of headers. The header that will suit you best must match either a curtain track, hangers, rail, or your curtain rod.
Pencil pleat curtains are some of the most popular, and it is easy to see why. You can spot them easily, as they are the ones that have folds close to each other, creating what looks like a row of pencils. Their popularity means Spotlight has a large range and a lot of brands available. That means prices are affordable and finding the right one for your home is easy.
Another popular option is the double or triple pinch pleat. While pencil pleats have folds that are close together, pinch pleats are spaced further apart and have their pleats permanently sewn in. They are usually hand-sewn as well, which can add to their price and their quality.
If you're after a more modern type of ready made curtain, then an eyelet curtain can be the best fit for you and your home. Eyelet curtains connect to a curtain rod with large rings, making them easy to put up and to bring down to clean. If you have a curtain track in your room, then an eyelet curtain is probably not a good fit, but the two options above may be the place to start looking.
WHAT IS THE NEXT THING I SHOULD LOOK AT WHEN SELECTING CURTAINS?
Another thing to consider when you select ready-made curtains is the lining. Curtains that contain additional lining such as blockout can help keep your home warm. They can also keep out the light, which can come in handy in rooms such as bedrooms during the day. There are a few types of curtain lining to think about, such as standard lining, blackout lining, polycotton lining, and thermal lining. Polycotton curtain lining is usually the most affordable and has much of the same properties as standard lining. However, if you are looking to keep the heat in and the sun out, blockout lining or thermal lining are the better options.
You can also look to using two different kinds of ready-made curtains at once. If you have a sheer curtain behind a heavier blockout, you can keep the light out and the heat in when you want it, but let the sheer curtain act as a light diffuser during the warmer months to let the sun in.
HOW DO I GET THE BEST FIT FOR MY CURTAINS?
The most important step in buying curtains is the home measure. Accurate measurements can make or break a purchase, and will stop you from having to go back and forward to Spotlight until you get the right fit. Surprisingly, a lot of homeowners can struggle with getting the right measurements, or measuring the right parts,
When you start measuring, you should always have a curtain rod or a track already in place. Ideally, your curtain rod or track should be at least 15 centimetres above the window. Not only is that for practical reasons, but it makes your curtains look great when you install them. It's also a good idea to extend the curtain rod or tracks about 15 cm either side of the window if possible, making sure the end spacing is even.
To measure the width of your new curtains, measure your curtain track or your curtain rod, - the entire length without the finials. You should always use this method and not measure wall to wall, unless you have a window that stretches the whole way.
Once you have measured the width of your curtains, it is time to work out the length. Naturally, the length of your curtains can be down to preference, so before you do the measuring, make the decision about where you want your curtain to fall to.
For curtains the same length of the window sill, always measure about 1.25 cm above your window sill for the best fit. If you want your curtains to fall underneath the sill, add at least 15 cm from the bottom of your window sill. If you want them floor length, always stop measuring 1.5 cm from the floor.
