Why choose eyelet curtains?

Perfect for a modern style, eyelet curtains hang effortlessly from a curtain pole.

Where space either side of a window is very limited an eyelet or wave heading is the best option. An eyelet heading creates a very contemporary look where the curtain pole is threaded through metal eyelets in the top of the curtains. You can choose a chrome, gunmetal or bronze finish for the eyelets which is a great way of visually linking your curtains not only to the curtain pole but to other metal finishes in the room. Curtains with eyelet headings are very easy to operate so a particularly good choice for children’s bedrooms as well as elsewhere.

Larger folds with a natural wave give your eyelet curtains a more uniform, streamlined look. So if you’re into simpler, crisp finishes, an eyelet curtain heading is the perfect way to create a modern look and feel. Easy to install, no hooks, no rings. That simple! The beauty of Eyelet curtains is that they’ll arrive all set up for you to simply hang. No hooks, rings, or strings to be gathered.

In addition, eyelet curtains are more affordable as curtain headers go. Why? With no pleats and just simple natural waves from the way the curtain hangs, less fabric is needed for the desired look, saving you some money for a fancier pole perhaps? Given they use less fabric, Eyelet curtains have less stack back. This means that when you draw them open, they take up less space than a pleated curtain would, maximising the amount of natural light you can let in your room.

How much fullness do our eyelet curtains have? Curtain fullness is a ratio and describes the number of times more fabric than the finished width of the curtain will be used. Our eyelet curtains have a fullness ratio of two. Which means eyelet is the ideal heading for windows with limited space either side as eyelets stack back very neatly.

How to measure for eyelet curtains?

Firstly, measure the width of your pole from end to end. If you are measuring without a pole, measure the width of your window frame and add 10 - 30cm of stack-back to each side for every 1m of window frame. Next is the height, measure from the bottom of the pole to the floor in three places, and take the longest measurement. To meaure the height with no pole, measure from where you would like to install your pole to the floor, and add 3cm for eyelet curtains.
