Custom Made Curtains
Spotlight's Custom Made Curtains are designed to fit your window furnishing needs. We offer a wide selection of styles and fabrics to suit your windows. Our friendly team in store can also provide advice on suitable solutions if you provide your own window measurements.
How long does it take for custom curtains to be made?
Our custom made curtains service is capable of catering to all windows. Our variety of sizes, materials, fixtures, headings and finishes means we have something that will not only suit your personal décor but can be made to fit your windows, regardless of how bespoke. For this reason it’s difficult to put an exact timeframe on the service as there are so many variables. Once you’ve received your free in-home measure and quote, and the exact nature of what you require has been determined, our experienced consultant will be able to provide further information around timeframe.
What are the benefits of custom curtains vs ready-made curtains?
Custom made curtains will be tailored exactly to suit your window, regardless of shape and/or size. This means you can be sure that your windows will be the right length and width even if you have a variety of different sizes of windows or doors in the same room. You also have the benefit of being able to choose exactly the colour, style and design that you prefer and that will match with your other furnishings, from our huge range of curtain fabrics.
How do I know what measurements to provide when ordering custom made curtains online?
To ensure that you get exactly the right product when ordering your custom made curtains, Spotlight does not offer a custom made curtain supply online. We ask that customers come into their nearest Spotlight store with their window measurements, so that our knowledgeable sales staff can check the exact curtain measurements and confirm the correct fabric, price and other details required. As custom made curtains cannot be refunded if the incorrect measurements have been provided, this will give you the peace of mind to know that your curtains will be everything you hoped for.
Are custom made curtain tracks available for my curtains?
Yes, we offer a wide range of curtain tracks which can be adjusted exactly to your requirements. Curtain tracks are dependent on various factors, such as:
-Size and weight of curtains
-Amount of fixing space above or beside windows or doors
-Style of window dressing
-Visible or hidden behind curtains

What type of custom made curtain rods do I need for my custom made curtains?
You will have a lot of choice when it comes to using curtain rods. The main things to look out for are the style of curtain (contemporary curtains will look better with a modern style curtain rod), and the place where the curtains will be installed (some curtain rods with ornate finials require a lot of space beside the window). Other considerations can be things such as the view from your window – if you have a gorgeous view, you may want to choose a rod or track that allows you to pull the curtain open beyond the window itself so as not to lose any of the view. For extra wide windows, rod extensions are often available.
What features are available for custom made curtains?
Custom made windows allow you to choose exactly the look and weight of fabric you require. In addition, custom made curtains have the following features and benefits:
-You can choose from many different heading styles: pinch pleat, box pleat, reverse pleat, pencil pleat, gather tape, rod pocket, eyelet or S-fold.
-You are able to add lining for increased insulation both in summer or winter, and help prevent your fabric fading in the sunlight.
