Custom Curtains: How it Works
Off-the-shelf fixed dimensions don't always work, especially if you're making custom curtains for a unique purpose. We make bespoke sizes to suit anything from small windows to even stage curtains for the theatre. Using your photos, graphic designs or artwork, this home furnishing is totally personal to you.
Step 1: Measure
You need to carefully measure the area where you want the curtains to cover and consider if you need a pair or just one (or multiples). But you don't simply take that measurement, as your curtains will look like a flat sheet against the window when pulled to. You need to account for the pleats/ruffles/fullness. Typically, for a tape heading, this is 2x the area, and 1.8x the area for eyelets. For example, if your window is 1m wide, you need approx 2m of fabric, so make sure you calculate this before you enter your dimensions.
Please note: We advise to consider an additional 1cm of fabric all around, for hemming and in the case of fabric shrinkage. Fabric shrinkage can be 2-6%, so please consider this when designing your customised curtains.
Step 2: Choose your Hanging Style
We offer the choice of wire hanging (photo 1), pencil heading tape 7.5cm /3" (photo 2) or eyelets (photo 3). Our eyelets are either 40mm or 65mm (internal diameter) in silver or black. You need to arrange your own pole and take into consideration the size and positioning to allow the right amount of curtain you need. Our tape heading is a strong strip of curtain heading that allows you to use your existing runners and hook your new curtains onto the rail nice and easily. If you are replacing old curtains is it easy to measure the existing curtains and use those dimensions if they were a good fit.
Step 3: Choose your Lining
We have 4 options for curtain linings; unlined, blackout lining, 1 layer lining and 3 layer interlining.
- Unlined is the simple Suede Vision textile we use as one single layer
- Lined is our Suede Vision textile with 1 layer of lining (quality ivory lining)
- Blackout Lined is our Suede Vision textile with 1 layer of blackout lining in cream (dense weave - no light shines through)
- Interlined is our Suede Vision textile with 2 other layers. 1 middle liner of quality wadding with an ivory lining at the back. This gives a premium look and handle.
Step 4: Upload your Photos
Once you know the dimensions you are ready to design in our system. Simply add the graphic, edit it, rearrange it etc so it's exactly how you want it and we will do the rest.
NB: We can print any size, however, for widths over 150 cm, we may need to produce the curtain from multiple panels, stitched together. We will contact you via email to get your confirmation before we print and produce.

Curtain Design Inspiration
Curtains for kids rooms should be fun, well fitting and keep the light and cold out. Your children will feel excited about their unique curtains and might even make bedtime less of a hassle. From Toy Story curtains and comic book hero designs, to fairy princesses and cute puppies, you can really let your imagination go wild. Choose blackout curtains so they can fall asleep easier with less distraction.
If you have a store and want to keep the harmony of the rest of décor or showcase your logo and branding, this is the perfect way to do so. Your dressing room curtains can be printed in your company logo, or choose imagery to suit your services, such as fashion for a clothing boutique or tattoo designs for your tattoo parlour.
Having a show or putting on a production? We can custom make custom made curtains for the stage, fully printed edge to edge. Our stage curtains are fire rated which is a requirement for public upholstery. Print the classic theatre symbol with the two masquerade masks to add that extra bit of drama to proceedings.
Important: If you are making curtains for a non domestic setting, eg College or public space, it will be a requirement that the curtains are certified as fire rated. We offer a fire rated front single layer and a fire rated lining too so you can have 1 or 2 layer fire rated to BS 5867 - 2:2008 Fabrics for curtains, drapes, and window blinds. Be sure to order the FR version (FR stands for Fire Rated) in the options.
