Pinch pleat curtains are extremely popular for a polished and elegant window dressing. The pleats are permanently sewn into the top of the curtains and are separated by flat sections of fabric in between each pleat. Pinch pleat curtain hooks are inserted on the back of each pleat, so the curtains are suspended by the pleats with flat fabric between.
Double and Triple pinch pleat curtains can work well in both modern and traditionally styled rooms, however a double pinch pleat is more suited to contemporary room schemes. For a traditional, luxurious look an inter-lined triple pinch pleat curtain will deliver the best solution.
Pinch pleat curtains are made to fit the exact length of your curtain pole or track so need to be made to measure. We prefer the curtains to sit underneath the pole for a polished look. Shop our Made to Measure Curtains here.
Eyelet curtains are extremely popular in contemporary room schemes. The folds on the eyelet mean they deliver a slimmer stack back to a more traditional curtain heading, which may be advantageous if space is limited either side of the windows for the curtains to stack on. Eyelet curtains can only be used on a curtain pole. Shop our range of curtain poles suitable for eyelet curtains.
Eyelet curtains are available as a readymade curtain. Shop our range here from leading homeware brands including Orla Kiely, Laura Ashley and Sara Miller.
Wave curtains are an extremely popular choice, particularly over large expanses of glass such as bi-fold or sliding doors, or in front of floor to ceiling windows or doors. A wave curtain delivers a neat, contemporary window dressing and looks very stylish. Please refer to our Wave Curtain Information page for further details. A wave curtain needs to be fitted on a curtain track or curtain pole compatible with wave gliders. Shop our range of tracks and corded curtain poles suitable for wave curtains.
A pencil pleat curtain is made by sewing a pencil pleat heading tape onto the back of the curtain. The pleats are then formed by gathering the curtain fabric into neat pencil style pleats. A pencil pleat curtain can be hung from a curtain pole or a curtain track and is a popular choice for readymade curtains.
A pencil pleat curtain is suitable for all interior design styles and suits traditional and contemporary homes.
A gathered heading delivers a more relaxed and less uniform look compared to a pencil pleat. It is best suited to lightweight curtains with a short drop. Gathered headings are a popular choice in cottage kitchens or bedrooms with small windows. A gathered headed curtain can be hung on a curtain pole or a curtain track.
Goblet pleat curtains are similar in their makeup to pinch pleat curtains but create a more formal, traditional look. Small goblet shaped sections of fabrics are formed in the curtain heading when the fabric is gathered and pleated, these are then separated by flat sections of fabric. Pinch pleat curtain hooks are positioned at the back of each goblet to hang the curtains.
This heading looks best when hung beneath a curtain pole, however, can also be used on a curtain track.
