The Ultimate Guide to Buying The Best Curtains In Essex

Curtains can be a fantastic addition to your home, offering the perfect blend of function and style. Not only do they block out light and improve your privacy, but they can also enhance the look of a room brilliantly. However, buying them can sometimes be difficult, with a lot to consider to ensure that you make the right choice. Read on to find out how to buy the best curtains in Essex.

Types of curtains

Curtains come in many different styles, fabrics and finishes. Therefore, it’s important to consider your options carefully before making a decision. Some of the most popular include:

  • Interlined curtains. If you have draughty windows, interlined curtains are a good option. As well as adding warmth to the room, they make the curtains look fuller and more luxurious.
  • Blackout curtains. A popular option, blackout curtains are designed to block out natural sunlight or the glow from street lights, helping to keep a room as dark as possible.
  • Sheer curtains. Sheer curtains provide privacy whilst letting daylight through, helping you feel connected with the world outside your window. They’re perfect for layering with other curtains.

Curtain heading types

As well as choosing the style and fabric of your new curtains, you’ll also need to choose how you want them to attach to the pole or track. The option you choose will affect the drape and the overall look of the curtains. Eyelet, twin pleat and wave are a few of the most popular choices.

  • Eyelet curtains. A modern alternative to conventional pleated curtains, eyelet curtains feature metal rings that are threaded onto an eyelet curtain pole.
  • Twin & pinch pleat curtains. A popular heading with groups of two (twin) or three (pinch) pleats, which will work on poles and tracks.
  • Wave curtains. A modern simple look with no pleating at the top, with the curtain running in “waves” hung on a curtain track.

Measuring for your curtains

When buying curtains, it’s vital to measure for them correctly. This will ensure that they look and function their best. There are a few important measurements you’ll need to take, including measuring the curtain pole or track width, and measuring the curtain drop. We always recommend fitting your track or pole before taking any measurements for the length of your curtains

The right curtains can add style and elegance to any room of your home whilst offering you all the privacy you need. Get in touch to find out more about made to measure curtains from Feran today.
