How much should I budget for my curtains and blinds?

When it comes to purchasing curtains, there is no fixed amount that you should spend. The cost of curtains can vary widely based on a variety of factors, including the type of fabric, the size of your windows, the quality, and the design. However, to provide you with a rough idea of what you can expect to get for your money, we would generally expect it to cost from £400-500 per window.

Our made to measure curtains and made to measure blinds are made from quality, sustainable fabrics and are handmade in the UK. They are also built to fit the exact measurements of your windows meaning they fit perfectly and will be more effective at blocking out light and insulating your home. As a result, made to measure curtains may be slightly more expensive than high street ready-made options, but the difference in quality and finish is clear.

Ultimately, the decision between ready made and made to measure curtains comes down to your priorities. If you prioritise convenience and affordability, ready-made curtains may be the better choice. If you prioritise a perfect fit, customisation and quality, made-to-measure curtains may be the better option.

Headings

The heading you choose will use different amounts of fabric and take more or less time to cut, pin and sew. Wave, pencil and eyelet headings require two times more fabric than the final width measurement, whereas double pleat, triple pleat, cartridge and goblet headings require 2.5 times more. If you’re still unsure, get in touch with the team.

Lining

Customised curtains and blinds are just that, customised to your wants and needs. Blackout, thermal or even unlined - - - buying with us means you can have exactly what you want, so the price you pay reflects that. Interlining is very labour-intensive so is a little more expensive than standard lining. A thick, padded lining is stitched between your fabric and the cotton lining before your curtains are made.
