Guide To Our Curtain Fullness.

We offer approx double fullness in our curtains, many internet retailers also claim this but don't, check before you order. Our curtains are made in widths of fabric, each width is between 138cms and 152cms. So in a 2 width pair of curtains for a track 240 cms wide you would have a total of approx 550cms of fabric width, which will give you full looking curtains.

upto 70cms wide, Pair 1/2 width per curtain, single curtain 1 width.

70-140cms wide, Pair 1 width per curtain, single curtain 2 widths.

140-210cms wide, Pair 1 1/2 widths per curtain, single curtain 3 widths.

210-280cms wide, Pair 2 widths per curtain, single curtain 4 widths.

280-340cms wide, Pair 2 1/2 widths per curtain, single curtain 5 widths.

And so on.... upto a max or 520cms which is 4 widths.

If you require more or less fullness please call us for a price.

Notes.
Always use a steel tape measure, fabrics tapes can stretch. It may seem obvious but if you are replacing existing curtains that are the desired size just measure them and input these sizes into the site.

If you require 2 pairs of curtains of different drops for the same room and it is important that they are pattern matched please let us know if you would like them to match from the top or Bottom.
