When shopping for your perfect curtains, it can often be hard to know which ones are the right ones for you and your space. Whether you are unsure of their practicality, design or style – it can be rather hard to make that final decision to buy them.

Curtains are brilliant for both their function and their design. They can add a real touch of sophistication and class to any room. The limit is endless when it comes to deciding on design and style – that is what makes it all so exciting!

Here at Winnens, we understand that our customers want to walk away with curtains they love. That is why we have put together this helpful guide to help you prepare yourself before you begin your curtain purchasing journey!

Take a look at our expert top tips on finding the perfect curtains for your space…


1.         Consider the material type, pattern and colour.

The most exciting part of curtain shopping is exploring the wide range of materials, fabrics and designs out there!

Whether you would like a thick and heavy material to help reduce the light coming in or light and thin material for a more translucent look – you are guaranteed to find something out there for you!


2.         Find the appropriate length.

Finding the appropriate length for your desired curtains is a pretty essential step. The last thing you would like to have is curtains that get in the way and ultimately, become a nuisance.

Depending on your preference, you could opt for a length that fall exactly to the floor level, or you go for curtains that are slightly longer. Longer curtains are a great option if you would like to have the drapes puddle on the floor.


3.         Ensure you have all of the measurements.

Before buying your curtains, be sure to have measured the space in which you hope to hang them. It is recommended that when you measure the width of your window frame or door, that you multiply the measurement by a factor of 2/2.5. This will allow a ‘gathered’ look to be achieved on the sides when the curtains are drawn.


4.         Find out the maintenance required for the fabric.

When choosing your perfect curtains, it is always best to find out whether or not they are dry-clean only or if they can be machine washed.

Knowing this in advance will prevent any accidents when washing and will allow you to decide whether you would rather go for a cheaper and easier alternative of curtains that can be machine washed.


5.         Buy your curtains from a specialist.

It is recommended that your buy your curtains from a specialist who can provide you with both the information and curtain knowledge.

Purchasing your curtains through a trusted business will allow you to feel assured that the curtains you have bought are of the best quality.
