Curtains or Drapes are a beautiful way to dress your window. Whether you like a more traditional style of Pinch pleats, or a more modern style of Eyelets or S-Fold headings, curtains can be made out of sheer fabrics, or more solid fabrics paired with a blockout lining – which is great for that extra insulation against the cold in winter and heat in summer.
We at Spectrum pride ourselves on the range of styles and fabrics we offer, and on the quality and workmanship of our curtains.
Pinch Pleat refers to the top of the curtain where the header is sewn into fixed pleats. This gives a uniform look with elegant folds going from top to bottom.
Pencil Pleat curtains are named for the tight pleating at the top of the curtains that look similar to a row of pencils. They are less formal and not used as often in decorating these days.
Lined curtains is when there is additional layers of fabric added to the curtain to assist with blocking out the elements. This style of curtain, no matter what the heading type is, will provide the best insulation for you home.
Sheer curtains are made from light see through fabric that can been seen through during daylight hours. Allowing you to have the curtains closed for privacy but still being able to see out during daylight hours. Often paired with blockout roller blinds or curtains for insulation and privacy in the evenings.
Angled curtains can be made a variety of different styles. They are sewn in a way that they fit an angled window when closed and can be installed on a cord or hand drawn track.
There are so many blinds to choose from. There are simple roller blinds or you can go with a more decorative Roman or versatile venetian. There is a blind style to suit any home.
There are a wide range of fabrics and colours to choose from, including screen fabrics, light filtering fabrics and blockout fabrics, with the option to use dual blinds at windows to create privacy both day and night or pair them with sheer curtains for a softer look.
Soft Romans are designed using a huge range of curtain materials, paired with a blockout lining to create a great option for your window, helping to insulate, and to protect the life of your fabric. Hard Romans are designed using blind fabrics, using options from blockout fabrics to translucent fabrics.
