How Your Custom Nursery Curtains Work
Straight from the store sizes aren't always the right sizes. You shouldn't have to compromise on anything when it comes to your curtains, not size, not colour, not design nor style. Curtains are a huge focal point of any room, and as your little one is starting to see shapes and colours and are able to pick these out more and more, don't settle for second best at all. Create your own custom kids curtains in just a few simple steps.
Step 1: Measuring
Measure the area that you want your curtains to cover, and add to that figure for pleats and ruffles. The rule of thumb is 2x the area you wish to cover for tape heading curtains, or 1.8x the area for eyelets. Remember to measure from the curtain pole or rail rather than the top of the window, otherwise your curtains may not reach the bottom. If there are already curtains that are a good fit, it might be easier to measure those instead of the window. We'd advise adding an extra centimetre all round the edges for hemming, and shrinkage. Curtains can between 2% and 6%, so adding this now will give your custom nursery curtains a longer lease of life.
Step 2: Styling
Choose the type of lining you would like for your bespoke children's curtains. Blackout lining will make sure that your youngster is in total darkness both at bedtime, and during those daytime naps, whereas no lining may let just enough light through from any street lamps outside that you don't have to switch on a lamp for those middle of the night feeds. Whatever your rationale, there's a wide selection for you to chose from.
Choose whether you want a single curtain or if you'd rather a pair. Enter your sizes in either centimetres, metres, inches or yards. Next chose the hanging style that suits your curtain rail or pole. Select between wire handing, tape heading or 2 different sizes and colours of eyelets.
Step 3: Designing
This is the bit where you can let your imagination run wild. Choose your favourite family snaps, or your son or daughter's favourite storybook, film or TV characters. You can even use a mix of the two. Use one photo, multiple photos, text, a graphic design or any combination. Create a family tree, an alphabet, or even your own storyboard. The possibilities are limitless as to what you can create, so make your custom nursery curtains as unique as your bundle of joy.
What my Custom Nursery Curtains Will Look Like
Your baby room curtains have your personalised design printed on the front, and either an ivory backing or a white blackout backing depending on the style you have chosen. The soft, faux suede material, has a matte finish. Our Suede Vision fabric is smooth has little to no creasing. There isn't any elasticity in the material, which stops your design becoming distorted.
Please note: When you select our fire-rated lining or blackout lining your curtains will weigh slightly more.
