Made to Measure

We have great expertise in making curtains and blinds and offer you a truly personal service. We will dedicate one of our staff to oversee your job. They will discuss fabric quantities, styles, type of finish and time scales with you. There is no obligation to you until you accept our quote. All you have to do is phone (01691 670562) or email (info@textileexpressfabrics.co.uk) asking for a free telephone consultation with one of our staff. Our experience is that a telephone chat achieves far more than form filling on the internet.

 

We offer a full range of curtain heading types to suit your style and needs, as well as roman blinds.

Measuring For Curtains

We would advise fitting your pole or track before taking your measurements and always use a metal tape measure. Your pole or track should extend around 15-20cm either side of your window and 15cm above the window, depending of the size of window and space available.

Measuring Length

We need to know the finished length you would like your curtain to measure. The most popular options are sill length, 15cm below sill (to prevent draughts), floor length and pooling curtains which have extra length to drape on the floor. If your curtains will be sitting above a radiator we recommend they sit 3cm above the top to allow heat to circulate into the room. For tracks you should measure from the top of your track to where you would like the curtain to finish.Poles can be measured from various points depending on the type of header you are using and where you would like the curtain to start. For eyelet and tab top curtains you must measure from the top of the pole. Pencil pleat curtains are a little more flexible, to make a feature of the pole measure from the eyelet at the base of the curtain ring, if you would like the curtains to hide the pole measure from the top of the pole down.
