Some useful information on our linen curtains and curtain fabrics.
Also Curtain Fullness Explained
Please read these useful tips before ordering your curtains, curtain fabric, upholstery fabric or fabric for loose covers.
- Measuring Curtains: Please use a steel tape when measuring your curtains, as fabric tape give a less accurate result. Other good ways to get exactly the right measurements is to measure your old curtains if you are replacing existing curtains.
- We will calculate how wide curtains you need! You only need to give us the width of your curtain pole or track. Please find measuring instructions for your curtains from here: How To Measure Curtains
- Please install curtain rails before measuring the curtains length and width. You might not be able to get the rails exactly where you want them.
- If you have chosen a patterned fabric for your curtains and there are different lengths for the same room, please inform us if you want the pattern to match either from the top or the bottom.
- When you are choosing your curtain fabric or fabric for upholstery or loose covers, please remember that the fabric will look darker in larger areas.
- Please note that the curtains with pencil pleat and triple pleat needs more fabric and also requires more space when hung up.
- How wide will be my curtains? What does curtain fullness mean? How do we calculate the fullness when we make curtains for you?
Please find below a guide for different fullness ratios for different curtain heading types.
Ada & Ina’s Standard Fullness Guide for different curtain heading types :
Gathered Heading 1.8
Pencil Pleat 2
Triple Pleat 2
Tab Tops 1.25
Eyelet Curtains 1.5
Rod Pocket Curtains 1.00
If your curtain track is 120 cm wide and we will make you pair of Tab Top Curtains (2 separate curtains). Multiply your curtain track or pole width by fullness as follows.
120 cm (pole width) x 1.25 (fullness for Tab Top Curtains)´= 150 cm
The total width of your 2 curtains would be in total 150 cm when there is no pleats.
Curtain width per one curtain: 150 cm / 2 = 75 cm
- We can make all our fabrics to curtains or blinds – unless stated otherwise. However since upholstering fabrics and fabrics for loose covers require a heavy fabric and more hard wearing fabric, not all our fabrics are suitable for loose covers or upholstery.
- Before making any decisions please order sample swatches of the curtain fabric, upholstery fabric or fabric for your loose covers which you are considering. Once we have cut the fabric off the roll and processed your order we are not able to give any refunds or accept any returns.
