More Choice:

The selection of ready-made curtains on the market is pretty limited, not only in design but also in style. How many times have you opted for ready-made curtains that you don’t really love, but simply because they’re adequate, while thinking to yourself that you’ll change them when you get round to it? It’s a false economy! When you choose made-to-measure curtains, you are making an informed choice that will last for the long-term. The variety of fabrics and designs on offer means you can actually have the design and look that you really want for your home, and that’s priceless! 

Perfect Fit:

Perfect Fit:

Made-to measure curtains are designed to fit your windows exactly. Windows come in all shapes and sizes and by choosing made-to-measure curtains, you can dress each window uniquely. Having curtains that fit properly not only enhances the look of your room, it will help with heating costs, privacy issues and light control. Measuring up for curtain fitting isn’t as daunting as you may think - at Just Fabrics we have a free Curtain Measuring Guide that you can watch to assist you, as well as a Curtain Fabric Calculator so you can accurately work out how much fabric you need for your window.

Individual design:

As well as being able to choose from hundreds of different fabric types, colourways and designs, by choosing made-to-measure curtains, you can add other personal details. For a start, you can choose your favourite curtain headers, whether that’s a tab top, eyelet, pencil pleat or triple pleat - each header creates a different type of look and feel to your room. And then you can have some fun with customisation - pom-pom finishes, dual-fabric drapes, tie-backs… the list is endless.

By investing in made-to-measure curtains you are investing in superior craftsmanship. Made-to-measure curtains are custom-made by skilled seamstresses, ensuring a high quality finish. From the stitching to the linings, every detail is tailored to perfection and it shows. With such attention to detail and quality craftsmanship, made-to-measure curtains are designed to last, giving them greater durability and longevity than ready-made ones.

And because the curtains are made to your exact window proportions, they will fit better and help reduce heat loss, thus reducing your heating bills. And, bear in mind, that a well-dressed window can actually enhance the overall value of your property.
