Made to measure for you

One of the major benefits for investing in made-to-measure curtains comes down to exactly what it says in the title. Having that bespoke service means you will have an expert measure the exact size of your windows and they will be able to provide guidance for everything that your window allows. Your expert will take into consideration “stack back” areas, the space between your ceiling/coving and your window, corner window limitations and bay window requirements, in addition to compensations for radiators and window seating.

Aside from dressing tricky windows, your expert will assist you with many other requirements to ensure your curtains are fulfilling your space and needs. Will your curtains be working curtains, or will they be decorative to frame your window? Will you then need them to work in conjunction with a blind? See our post on made-to-measure blinds for the perfect pairing!

Gorgeous Fabrics

Do your curtains need additional features, such as blackout lining or thermal insulation? Or maybe you’re looking for something more sheer, such as voile or net, to keep your home light and airy but still give you protection from flies, heat and glare from the sun. The beauty of made-to-measure is that you get to make every single determination, and, you are guided the entire way through.

Once these considerations have been made, it’s time to talk fabric. With Glasswells’ made-to-measure service, we have 1000s of fabrics for you to choose from. Although fabric is the biggest contributor to the cost of made-to-measure curtains, our knowledgeable team can help you find the perfect fabric to suit all of your requirements and to fit your budget.

With a made-to-measure service you’re also investing in peace-of-mind since your curtains will last as long as you need them to. No longer will you have to deal with altering readymade curtains to fit your windows, or, change them more often than you’d like because they weren’t quite right for your space.

MEASURING GUIDE FOR CURTAINS

Our easy to follow measuring guide, shows you how to measure for curtains.

Our handy guide makes it easy to get the correct measurements for your new window dressings and we are always on hand to help or advise.

STEP 1: MEASURING THE WIDTH

When measuring for new curtains and blinds use a metal tape measure and follow our window measuring guide.

Our window measuring guide will help you if you have a pole; measure the pole width excluding the end finials (from A to B, as diagram shows). If you have a track measure the total width (from C to D, as diagram shows).

When fitting a new track or pole, if possible this should be fitted 15cm above the window and 25cm each side of the window recess (this allows for the curtains to be stacked back away from the window).

If you have a track that overlaps you need to measure both sides of the track and add them together. You must measure the pole or track and not the window recess.

STEP 2: MEASURING THE FINISHED LENGTH

The finished length is the measurement from the very top of the curtain to the bottom hem.

Firstly, decide on where you would like your curtains to fall, this is your bottom hem position. The diagrams show suggested lengths for both sill, and floor length curtains.

For curtains below window sill length allow 1cm clearance above the radiator and 1cm clearance above the carpets.

Always measure the length to the left, right and centre of your pole/track. Where the measurements vary, choose the length that suits best, ideally in whole centimetres.

FOR PENCIL AND PINCH PLEAT HEADINGS

When using a track, measure from the top of the track. This is so that your curtain will cover the track when its drawn. When using a pole, measure from the eye on the curtain ring to your finished drop, Your curtain will then hang beneath the pole. If you require your curtains to hang from a different position on the track or pole then you will need to measure from that point to your finished drop.

FOR EYELET HEADINGS

Firstly, measure from the top of the pole to your required bottom hem position, this is the eyelet drop*. Now add to this 3cm. (This is the amount of curtain above the eyelet hole), this gives your finished length.

TAB TOP HEADINGS

Firstly, measure the top of the pole to your required bottom hem position, this is the drop*. Now measure the diametre of the pole and add this to your drop measurement, this gives your finished length. (This is due to some length being lost when threading tabs onto the pole).

MEASURING VALANCES

Please remember the valance track must be beyond the curtain track to allow the curtains to hang freely a minimum of 2.5cm of valance track extending on either side is required. If you are measuring an existing track we will add on the returns for a new track. Please also state the drop you require.
