Getting the Most out of a Home and Garden

Why Go For Custom Made Curtains?

At times, there is that unusually shaped, extra wide or extra long window that a typical curtain won't cover. In any of these cases, you will require a curtain that is made-to-measure to cover the window appropriately. This is often the logic behind the availability of custom made curtains on the market. These curtains offer more than just a creative solution for covering non-standard windows. As the following points will prove, custom made curtains also offer other essential benefits to homeowners.

Create a unique, aesthetic appearance

Homeowners often embark on makeover projects because they want to improve the look of their homes. If you are redecorating your interior space, custom-made curtains presents a limitless range of opportunities to improve how it looks. Unlike ready-made curtains that come in pre-selected colors, textures, patterns and sizes, going for a custom design gives you the freedom to choose your own style, so that you can seamlessly achieve the interior design statement you want to make. This way, you can create a one-of-a-kind stunning look that will gain the admiration of all your visitors.  

Get to enjoy functional extras

Besides getting the best fit for a window, you also have an opportunity to ask the curtain fitter to add any extra features you like. Perhaps you want your curtains to come with extra thick layers of interlining to provide more thermal insulation against draughty windows, which often cause a home to lose warmth quickly.

Interlining is also a useful feature when you want to moderate the rate at which other interior furnishings such as carpets and furniture fade. It can help block a significant amount of color-fading UV light from reaching your interior furnishings.

No need to take window measurements yourself

Ready-made curtains come in a range of standard sizes for you to choose from. The downside with this is that not all windows are of the same shape and size, as already pointed out earlier. Therefore, chances are high that these curtains may not fit your windows perfectly. You will have to obtain exact measurements of the windows, so that you can get the closest fit, which is ideally the next standard larger size available.

With made-to-measure curtains, you do not have to go through the hassle of the measuring by yourself. At no extra charge, an expert curtain fitter will come to your home at your convenience to do all the necessary measuring for you.
