We have listed below some of our most popular headings. The heading you choose is dependent on a number of factors – from the formality or otherwise of the look you are trying to create, to more practical considerations such as the way the curtain hangs and drawback considerations. We will be on hand to advise you on which heading will work best in your particular situation – either over the telephone or during your Home Consultation.
A traditional, formal heading made up of three pleats grouped together, the style is best suited to long, floor-length curtains particularly as it encourages the curtains to hang in attractive, orderly folds. The pleat depth is typically 5” or 6” depending on the length of your curtains. Our most popular curtain heading.
A slightly less formal heading than the triple pleat and comprising two pleats grouped together. A wonderful compromise if you want long curtains that hang in orderly folds, but in a slightly more relaxed style than the triple pleat. Also great if you don’t have a huge amount of drawback space either side of your window.
An impressive formal pleat that adds an opulent elegance to a room – particularly well suited for period properties and great for long curtains made from rich heavy fabric.
Basically a goblet pleat that hasn’t been folded and stitched in at the base. The cylinder runs seamlessly from the pleat into the main body of the curtains. A contemporary interpretation of the goblet pleat, which is good for long curtains made from rich, heavy fabric.
Pencil pleats have a slightly simple, rustic look. The pleat can be as deep or as shallow as you wish, so as to best suit the proportions of the room in which the curtains are hung. Often used behind pelmets.
Another rustic heading that looks fantastic in country cottages and barn conversions. Looks best when the gathering is sufficiently deep (ie at least 6cms below top of curtain) to at least part cover the curtain pole. Suitable for both small casual curtains and for long, full curtains.
An extremely cost effective solution as this heading requires less fabric than gathered or pleated curtains. Not suitable for long, heavier weight curtains as tabs don’t glide easily along the pole.
Ties made from the same fabric as the curtains are sewn to the heading and tied to the pole. An informal, unstructured effect that, like the tab top is unsuitable for long, heavier weight curtains that need to be opened and closed regularly.
The curtain pole is threaded through metal eyelets that are punched through the top of the curtain. Creating a smart, contemporary effect, and best used in conjunction with a metal pole. Great where drawback space is limited as the curtain neatly concertinas together when drawn back.
