Curtain Headings

 

Curtain Headings

 

Pencil Pleat

Classic, simple and the slightly more elegant alternative to a gathered heading.

Our standard pencil pleats are 7.5cm (3”) deep. As one of our best value pleated headings, not surprisingly it is also our most popular style.

Note:You will need to pull the heading tape strings at the end to form the pleats when your curtains are delivered.

Suitable for both poles and tracks.


Inverted Pleat

Smart, formal and a little out of the ordinary. With its minimalist front face, this makes for a modern, contemporary look. 

Our standard pleats are 12.5cm (5”) deep; requiring a minimum of 2.25X fullness, your curtains will look full and generous.

 A word of caution, these curtains will need plenty of room to stack back. If you are pushed for space either side of your window, we suggest you choose a different heading.

Suitable for both poles and tracks


Gathered Pleat

Classic simple relaxed style.

With its ruffled top, this heading makes for simple, understated curtains.

Note:You will need to pull the heading tape strings at the end to form the pleats when your curtains are delivered.

Suitable for both poles and tracks.


Eyelet

Modern, unfussy and extremely neat.

With their regular even pleats, this heading requires the least amount  of space either side of the window to stack back.

Available in a range of colours to match your pole and fabric, our standard eyelet size is 40mm and is suitable for all poles up to 35mm diameter.

We wouldn’t recommend them for blackout curtains as light seaps through the eyelets.

Only suitable for poles. 


Tab Top

Simple, airy and relaxed we make our tab top curtains from only 1.25X fullness. Too much fullness causes bunching and detracts from the curtains’ simplicity.

Our standard tabs measure 7cm wide by 10cm deep and they fit all poles up to 35mm diameter. Should you have a larger pole, please call us and we will enlarge the tabs accordingly.

Note: curtains made from this style are not as easy as other heading styles to open and close.

Only suitable for poles


Triple Pleat (French Pleat)

The Classic.

French pleat or triple pleat is a smart formal classic heading.   The curtain falls into very elegant folds that can be easily dressed.

Our standard triple pleats are 5” deep. If your curtains are very long, we'll make the pleat 6" to keep the proportions of your curtains perfect.

Suitable for both poles and tracks.


Double Pleat

A more relaxed cousin of the triple pleat.

Traditional but a little less formal than the triple pleat, our standard double pleats are 5” deep.  If your curtains are very long, we'll make the pleat 6" to keep the proportions of your curtains perfect.

Suitable for both poles and tracks.
