Welcome to Our New Website!

It's Curtains offers you an easy way to design your curtains online before getting an Instant Quote, telling you how much it will cost to have your window dressings hand made and delivered to your door. Choose from a variety of fabrics, curtain and valance styles, tiebacks, tracks and poles, and accessories. April, our experienced Design Coordinator, will then oversee each order, making personal contact with each customer if necessary, to ensure complete satisfaction. You can even order Free Fabric Samples to ensure a perfect match with your own decor.

The recent trend towards less cluttered and busy interiors means we no longer need to spend a fortune on buying yards of fabric to festoon our homes with. Nowadays, clean lines, appealing textures and strong colours make much more of a sophisticated statement than acres of stiff brocade, rows of flouncy frills or over-elaborate trimmings. Grandeur and formality have made way for a new, inviting mood of simplicity and freshness.

However, if this new look of understated elegance is to be effective it does demand a certain amount of attention to detail, quality and finish. You may need less fabrics to make these new soft furnishings, but because the items are more simple and unadorned, the fabric should be the very best you can afford, in exactly the right colour and texture for your room. Try to be sensitive to the dimensions and proportions of your room. In a tiny space allow an understated but elegant curtain to be the single central focus. In a larger room, you can afford to add a few more elements - combine a couple of plump, inviting cushions and a pair of softly gathered curtains to enliven your interior. Just a few finishing touches - the special trimming, perhaps, or piping on a cushion - can turn a humble item into a piece of soft furnishing haute couture.

To help you create your ideal curtains using this website please read through the guidelines below.

Choosing Your Fabrics

To find your ideal fabric from the hundreds on offer without being bogged down with choices we have grouped our Fabrics into several categories: Clotted Creams, Blushing Roses, Golden Caramels, Bluebell Breeze, Chocolate Sensation, Dancing Foliage and Linings and Trimmings.

Once you have chosen a category you will be presented with a number of small fabric swatches. Click on any of these you wish to view it greater detail.

For your convenience the enlarged fabric swatch window can be left open, displaying the last fabric which you looked at. However, please note down the names of any fabrics which interest you.

Choosing Your Styles

Once you have decided which fabric(s) you like best you can begin looking at different curtain Styles. These are divided into sections, each one covering the range of options for: Top Styles, Valances, Tiebacks, Tracks, Poles and Holdbacks and Accessories.

Click on any of the small images to find out more about that particular option. Some of them even have a photograph of a room setting to help you visualize and generate ideas. Variations in colour, dimensions, etc. available for each option are shown in brackets.

Once you have made your selections using the drop down boxes provided, you can obtain an Instant Quote by simply clicking on Go! Do this as often as you please. You can then choose to print your quote or order your curtains using Worldpay.

Measuring Your Curtains

To learn How to Measure Your Curtains or How to Measure Your Valance go straight to this page! We have also included a Glossary of treatments and fabrics, covering everything from Antique Satin to Yarn-Dyed.

To make it easier for you to order your curtains and valance we need only four measurements - the Total Curtain Width (the length of your track or pole), the chosen Drop Height of your new curtains, the Valance Width and any Valance Returns. We will then automatically calculate the specific dimensions of your curtains and valance, how many swags would look best, etc., and tell you exactly how much all that will cost.

It's as easy as that! And if you have any difficulty choosing from the fabrics, styles and accessories on offer, or you wish to order Free Fabric Samples, or if you have any other comments or queries at all, you can Contact Us and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Have fun!


A sample of testimonials from some of our customers

"When I emailed you with my request about the curtain poles I also emailed several other companies. Yours was the only one that I received a reply from. Your responses were prompt and helpful, and the products were exactly as specified. The website was easy to use and I would definitely use you again. An improvement for your website would be to be able to check stock on-line and order on-line.

Regards, Veronica."

"I have never bought curtains over a website before but I found it to be a relatively painfree experience. In fact it was easier than looking in a shop as it was quicker to search through the different samples you had. You replied quickly to my request for a sample and the fabric was lovely. The curtains look fantastic in my house and everyone has commented on them. I would definitely use you again if I needed new curtains. Excellent service.

Thanks Debbie"

"Thank you for your email. I'd be very happy to give you a testimonial and to make it easy for me I'll simply answer the questions you put. I had never bought curtains online before and I tried several sites as I wanted to make sure I was happy about buying that way. Your site was by far the best and the easiest to use. You also had what appeared to be better quality fabrics, more interesting patterns and colours and a very much better range of accessories.I was delighted with the result both in terms of the quality of the product and the efficiency of the service. The curtains look fabulous and I certainly intend to use your firm again. I just wish you had a bigger range of fabrics and colours.Every good wish for your future success.

Mrs J. Smith."

"Just a short note to say I received my curtains on Friday and they were hung today. I am absolutely delighted with the quality and value for money I received from your company - they look absolutely
In days when you are not quite sure what you are going to receive from Internet orders it is refreshing to receive such a personal and high quality service!! Will certainly be placing another order with you and recommending your service to friends in the future.

Thanks again. Peter"
