Curtains - Making your house a home





Pencil Pleat


Probably the most common pleat because they are neat, practical and work well with both tracks and poles. Pencil pleats also work with virtually all types of curtain fabric, making them extremely flexible. You can choose exactly how high you want the heading to extend above the track or the pole - the higher you go, the more luxurious it looks.

Pinch Pleats


Sometimes called ‘French Pleats’, pinch pleats give an elegant, classic look that’s perfect for formal rooms. The pleats themselves are usually in groups of three separated by a space which opens up when the curtain is closed. When the curtain is opened the pleats create neat, clean folds down the fabric. Pinch pleats work equally well on tracks or hanging from rings on a pole.

Eyelet Headings


Less formal than pinch pleats, eyelet hears have a contemporary feel. When the curtain is closed they create a soft, curving fold down the fabric and need far less material than other types of pleat. Eyelet headings only work with curtain poles, which should be fitted at least 15cm above the windows.

Goblet Pleats


Elegant and sophisticated, goblet pleates create a striking look and are ideal for use with longer windows. Choose rich jaguard or tapestry fabrics and combine them with lavish rope ties for a truly luxurious look. Perfect for creating a striking intirior!
