Pricing Guide for Curtains

 

The price guide gives an approximate cost for making your curtains in these styles – each with the option of lined or un-lined ,  interlined curtains would require a further estimate. The price  includes the tapes required,  hooks or eyelets and includes the cost of making.  As we do not  know which fabric you will choose, the price excludes this cost, but you can adjust by looking at the price and costing it by 2x width for pencil pleat, others require 2.5 x width or ask for help with this calculation.

Triple pinch pleat
A classic curtain heading which never dates.
The pleat consists of three folds which create a beautiful even drape.
Double pinch pleat
A more contemporary take on the classic triple pleat. Still drapes beautifully but uses less fabric for a more chic finish
Pencil pleat
The standard curtain tape, producing a continual row of small pleats.
The curtain hangs in a random fashion for a more informal effect.
Eyelet heading

A very modern heading, the eyelets are set in the fabric and the pole threads through the eyelets.The curtain hangs in an undulating wave for a simple contemporary feel.
The eyelets are available in various colour’s.
Cartridge heading
A contemporary finish giving a sleek curtain, requiring minimal stacking space.
Wave Heading
The wave curtain hangs in the same way as the eyelet and is a good alternative for those windows where eyelets are not possible, also very cost-effective.
It is a very modern sleek look and may require specialist pole/track and tape.
For a ‘quick quote’ measure your window from side to side and from top to bottom. Then let us know the measurements including the space you have either side, we can use an average priced fabric to assess a price.
