Requesting a Quote

When requesting a quote or placing an order for pinch pleat curtains we need to know the following information:

- Track/pole width

- Preferred Fullness: 2-3x Depending on how full you would like the curtains

- Depth of pinch: 6cm, 8cm or 10cm are standard depths. We recommend the longer the curtain the deeper the pleat

- Hook position: If your pinch pleat curtains are hand made we will need to know where you would like the hook positioned. This measurement is usually taken from the bottom of the track to the bottom of the glider.

For an additional charge pinch pleats can be made to any depth you require. So if you are replacing an old pair of curtains and wish to replicate these we are more than happy to quote for this.

How to measure for pinch pleat voile curtains:

When taking measurements we will always recommend you install your track or pole first and use a metal tape measure. This will ensure the measurements you provide us for a quotation will be as accurate as possible.

Pinch pleat voiles and curtains stack back beautifully with minimal space required. Pinch pleat curtains should suspend underneath your track to ensure when the curtain is drawn that the spaces between the pleats can fold back easily.

Once your track or pole has been successfully installed, measure from the centre of the glider to where you want the curtain to finish. Giving us the exact curtain drop will mean less room for error at the production stage. If you want your curtains to sit on the floor, measure to the floor, if you want them to hover deduct 1 cm to ensure you can smoothly run your hand underneath them. If you would like your curtain pooling or puddling on the floor you will need to add approximately 30cm, this is however a personal preference and we would therefore recommend experimenting with draping fabric on the floor to ensure you get the exact look you have envisioned.

If you are unable to install your track first, we will need to know the depth of your track or pole position so we can calculate your drop for you. Most of our tracks and poles are ready for immediate despatch unless they are made to order, but these only take up to 7 days to be made to your exact sizes. From experience it is worth waiting a little longer to ensure your measurements are exact, this is crucial to adding the final touches to your interior project.
