Curtains

Here's a selection of some of the work I've done for clients so far showing the different styles of curtain heading. Click on the thumbnail picture to see the full-size image.

PENCIL PLEAT

The most popular curtain heading providing a gathered look at the top of the curtain. Depth of the heading is often 4 inches but can be deeper - up to 6 inches.

 

 

EYELET

Many colours of eyelet can be used, providing a clean modern look which allows the curtain to hang in neat folds. Ideal where you want the curtains to push/stack back as much as possible away from the window. Most customers choose an eyelet colour that blends with the colour of metal pole they're using.

TRIPLE PLEAT

Triple pleat or pinch pleat provide a neat look to the top of the curtain and when pushed back the curtain stays in folds.

 

 

DOUBLE PLEAT

Very similar to triple but only 2 pleats are used allowing the fabric requirements to often be slightly less than with triple pleat.

 

 

CARTRIDGE PLEAT

A very effective modern look where one pleat is used only. The curtains push/stack back very neatly.

 

 

 

 

FRILL TOP

A stand up frill provides a cottagey look and is ideal for windows where there is not much room above the window for a pole.

 

PUFF-BALL

Similar to frill top but there is a puffed up heading providing a cottagey feel again. Some customers call them cabbage-tops!
