Frequently asked questions

  • Any room except kitchens, bathrooms and laundries. To choose the right one, think about how much light and privacy the room needs. Choose blockout curtains for rooms you want to be dark at night. Add thermal lining to increase energy efficiency. Sheer curtains are good for daytime privacy and filtering strong sunlight and glare.

  • You get far more options when you choose our custom-made curtains – more fabrics, more choices . Choose from more fabrics, choose how they pleat and drape, and how long and wide you want them. What’s more, they often end up being a similar price as a readymade. So why not have a go at customising to compare.

    Fast and fuss-free yet full of style, our readymades offer plenty of options over generic store-bought ones. While there aren’t quite as many options as custom-made, simply click on the you want and select from the set sizes available. Read our blog for more help deciding.

  • We offer free shipping on regular sized orders. However, this excludes rural delivery and oversized orders. You can find out more about shipping costs for these here.

  • The heading style is the very top part of your curtain, where it is pleated and sewn. The heading style you choose affects the wave of your curtains and how much fabric is needed.

    Choose pencil pleat for a relaxed look and flexibility to make your curtains looser or tighter.

    The pinch pleat is good for patterned fabrics; single is classic and economical while the double and triple pinch are fancier and need a bit more fabric.

    Choose the reverse single pleat for a luxuriously full curtain.

  • If there’s a windowsill jutting out or furniture in the way, you might want to make them short enough to accommodate this. Otherwise, we recommend going floor length. It’s best for blocking light and energy efficiency. But even at this length you have options. You can make the curtains float just above the floor (deduct 5-10mm) touch and bend (add 10-20mm) or pool on the floor (add 200mm or more).

  • Unfortunately we are unable to provide our service for windows with curves or slanted angles. To make it as easy as possible for as many people as possible, we had to draw a line somewhere and at this time, it’s at regular four-sided windows.

  • Order free samples of the colours you like best to see how they work in your home. Hold them up to the wall and/or window frame to compare with your current décor, and remember to check how they look in both natural daylight and when the lights are on at night. When choosing whites, greys or neutrals it’s all about matching the undertones. Read our blog for tips.

  • Absolutely! Many people do this to get the best of insulation and light and privacy control during both day and night time. There are many combinations that you can choose but ultimately the pairings will either be a sheer or light filtering curtain with a blockout blind, or blockout curtains with a light filter or sunscreen blind.

  • Do not machine wash or dry clean your curtains. Instead, give them a regular vacuum on a low setting. For any stubborn marks try dabbing at it gently with a damp cloth, warm water and mild detergent.

  • Yes, you can order free sample packs of your favourite curtains and/or blinds to help you choose. You can order a maximum of 10 samples in a pack.

  • We think you’re clever enough to manage that. We have step by step guides to help too. Besides, our DIY measure and installation model is part of what makes our products so affordable.

  • Because our products are affordable. And that’s because you deal directly with the manufacturer – that’s us.
