The Definitive Guide to Curtain Pooling

Pooling is the word used for the amount of fabric that gathers on the floor at the foot of your window. The pooling option you select determines the style of your made to measure curtains at floor level. Here’s a bit more information about the pooling options we have on offer…

Just Touching

This style of pooling is where the curtain just meets the floor. Good for a sharp modern look and easy to clean around, this style is great for new builds where the floors and windows are likely to be less uneven than older buildings.
