The Features and Benefits of Custom Curtains

Why Choose Curtains? Here are the Feature and Benefits:

Curtains and sheers are a great option as a window covering in your home for a number of reasons. Our professional team can provide and install curtains tailored to match your interior style with a great range of benefits, including:

Light Blockage – There is no better solution today that can block 99% of light coming into a room using fully backed curtain fabric whilst also providing the best insulation from heat and cold. With good quality curtains, you can receive excellent light control, insulation and privacy.

Sound Reduction – The fabric of curtains may deflect and absorb some of the noise and assist with stopping some sound escaping. Creating a quieter home for you, your family and your colleagues.

Energy Savers – The insulative benefits of curtains can help you stay warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. They give you complete control over the amount of sun entering and have great insulation qualities to allow heat not to escape in winter and keep the heat out during summer. Installing drapes with lining will have a significant impact on your energy consumption and potentially even save you money.

Drapes are a great accessory for your window furnishings, providing a classy warm feel, whilst having an elegant appearance and enhancing the effectiveness of your curtains

Add Value to Your Home – Curtains and Sheers provide a look like no other product can. A soft and elegant appeal can add dramatic value to any home buyer. They can also add the illusion of larger windows and height to a room to make it appear grander than it actually is.

What Are Wave Fold Curtains and S Fold Sheer Curtains?

What Are S Fold Curtains and Sheers?

Love the look of the curtains in those fancy up-market boutique stores or hotels? Then you’ve probably been drooling over gorgeous Wave Fold or S- Fold Curtains!

Wave Fold or S-fold curtains get their names from the shape they create. If you took a bird’s eye view of an S-fold curtain you would see the soft “S” shape created by the specially designed track.

The fabric is not pleated like the traditional pencil pleat or triple pinch pleat (see alternative Heading Styles below) as the S-fold is not formally pleated but held in place by the track with special poly-carbonate carriers. We call them S-fold as most people are familiar with this term.

Sleek and subtle to the eye, the S-fold pleated sheers have a modern appearance with gently and continuously folded drapery from the beginning to the end. It is common for these sheers to be raised from floor to ceiling and extended wall to wall to create a grand aesthetic. The perfect shape of the fabric is created by the uniquely designed track. No pleats or gathers are needed to create this stylish look.

Dramatic FoldsPerfect for large expanses, S-fold or Wave Fold curtains can be used to unify multiple windows or large expanses by covering an entire wall. Ripple Fold drapery glides along a low-profile track that seamlessly blends with your wall or ceiling, making it a great solution for corners, floor-to-ceiling windows or other hard to manage spaces.

This style of curtain pleating is suitable for use with hand-drawn, corded and motorised curtain tracks. They are very well suited for tracks that need to be curved to accommodate bends when 2 windows at right angles are treated with one continuous curved track.

We can help you decide between a manual or motorised system, a minimal or feature hardware system. S-Fold tracks can be ceiling fixed or wall fixed depending upon the look you want. By ceiling mounting the track you can achieve a dramatic look and help give the impression of a higher ceiling.

A ‘Butt Master Carrier’ can be used to further reduce stack-back. Curtains simply snap on and off the Ripple Fold or S Fold tape.

S-Fold tracks are available in numerous colours with white and anodised silver being the most popular, and can allow for a double track. Whether you love the look of decorative sheer fabrics or a block-out lined fabric, the Ripple Fold track can accommodate either style. If you want the best of both worlds, you can even have a decorative sheer on the front track and block-out lining on the rear. Ripple Fold tracks are so versatile!

Heading Styles

Choosing the right curtain heading is vital in deciding what drape style is ideal for you. Each varying style of heading offers a different look and different amount of fabric fullness which then has different effects on the final look and cost. Here is a selection of our most popular curtain heading styles:
