Are you in an old house looking to update or replace curtains and blinds? Have just moved into a new house and you are having to get new curtains or blinds throughout? We run through some window treatment ideas you can go for.
As winter is fast approaching a heavier weight curtain will help keep the warmth in. You can opt for a lightweight, med-weight or heavyweight interlining. Each of these will add variable amounts of insulation at your windows, also it allows the curtain to hang better and protects the face fabric.
Our skilled seamstresses handmake all styles of curtain in our Hereford workshop.
The different types of heading also help to finish the completed look:
- Pinch Pleat headings add a more formal look to a room, so would be more suitable for a sitting room or dining room.
- Pencil pleat heading has a more informal look so would be more suitable for a bedroom.
- Eyelet or Wave headings have a more streamlined look which are good for limited spaces and also have a contemporary feel.
