Curtains

Bespoke

A good pair of curtains can transform the look and feel of a room. Like accessories, curtains add colour, pattern, texture and personality. Curtains can also enhance a space, giving the illusion of height, visually expanding the size of a window and enhancing the way light flows into a room.

Selecting a curtain style and pattern is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to adding curtains to your decor. Measuring for the right size and hanging your curtains in the correct way will make all the difference in how the curtains look and function in your room.

With various depths, materials, shapes, prints, and colours, curtains really set the tone and style of a room. To open the whole wide world of curtains, we have created a simple glossary of the best types of curtains depending on your style and lifestyle.

If you look closely at the top of curtains (a.k.a. the header), you’ll notice that some are pinched at the top while others are strung through the rod itself. You’ll also notice a great variety in the style of pinching. These pinches create different types of pleats, thus, defining the level of fullness, shape, and volume of the curtains.

Ripple Fold

Created by carriers corded together to create that consistent wave

Ripple fold style curtains are curtains that have a consistent s- curve rippling across the span of the track. Usually installed on a track, this type of header makes curtains super easy to open close and then soft flow of the folds make them a modern yet classic look. This style is very popular at the moment.

Pinch Pleat

A narrow short pleat

Usually installed on a track, this type of header makes curtains super easy to open close and then soft flow of the folds make them a modern yet classic look. This style is very popular at the moment.

Goblet Style

A detailed heading style

While the aforementioned headers are pinched at the tip-top of the fabric, the pinch drops down a few inches with the goblet style.

Tailored Pleat

Bespoke curtains, blinds and soft furnishings

Tailored pleat drapes are similar to a Pinch Pleat, but the pleat starts at the very top of the fabric and falls from there. It is a less fussy more stylish pleat. Tailored Pleat Curtains work best when made with a substantial fabric, lighter weight fabrics definitely will need lining to look good if being made into curtains with a tailored pleat.

Tie-top

Bespoke curtains, blinds and soft furnishings

This is when the curtains are attached to the poles by tying bows or knots at the top. They’re great for evoking a bohemian, romantic, or laidback atmosphere.

Grommet / Eyelet

Bespoke curtains, blinds and soft furnishings

These refer to the type of curtains that have holes at the top so they can be strung on the rod directly so parts of it are exposed. Weaving over and under the rod, grommet curtains have larger, softer ripples.

Inverted or Box Pleat

Provide an elegant look to your window treatments

Also known as a Box Pleat, the Inverted Pleat is one of the more contemporary curtain headings. The pleats are hidden at the back of the curtain, creating a wall of fabric at the front. It is a fashionable choice as it creates clean lines and a neat look when they are drawn. For a simple and modern style, the Inverted Pleat is the perfect choice.

Tab Top

Featuring exposed loops of fabric along the top

Like the above, these curtains come with loops on top so they can be pulled right over the rod. Similarly, much of the rod remains exposed with tab tops, but the rounded pleats are typically narrower.

Rod Pocket

A classic, and classy way to hang drapery

For those of you who want the rod totally obscured, opt for a rod pocket header. Because the insert is hidden and the way they envelop the rod, these curtains typically require tie-backs and are a little more stubborn when opening and closing. Like headers, the material used for curtains plays a large role in how it hangs, but the material also determines how much light and noise penetrates the curtains. Get to know the different types of curtains based on up light filtration level below.

Sheers / Semi Sheers

Soften your home's lighting

Like the above, these curtains come with loops on top so they can be pulled right over the rod. Similarly, much of the rod remains exposed with tab tops, but the rounded pleats are typically narrower. A bit more private than sheers but still pretty see-through, semi-sheers are great in communal rooms or over shades in a bedroom or bathroom.

Blackout

Darken your room with ease

As per the name, blackout curtains provide the most privacy and insulation. The fabric is usually backed with a liner to make them thicker and more opaque.

Window Swags

Add a little style and romance to your room

Framing the top section of a window and usually falling in a billowy fashion, these are mostly just decorative and can be stand alone beautifully or enhance traditional curtains for a more layered, elaborate look. Also known as swags, these are loose fabric wrappings over a curtain rod that soften the appearance of a window treatment and add a casual, sometimes sophisticated note, to a room’s decor. A swag may be used alone on a window that gets no shades or curtains, or it can be layered over drapes instead of a formal valance.

Valances / Cornices

Finish your curtains in style

As per the name, blackout curtains provide the most privacy and insulation. The fabric is usually backed with a liner to make them thicker and more opaque.
