May 22nd, 2019 Why get your curtains professionally measured image

Measuring your windows for curtains is something you want to get correct from the start so you can get new curtains with the perfect fit. This is even more important if you’re choosing made to measure curtains as it’s a great opportunity to get them custom made to fit exactly and not being limited by available sizes out of a package. We recommend that our customers use our curtain fitting expert to come out and measure the space before beginning the planning and design phase, so we’ve put together a few reasons why it is so important to get your curtains professionally measured.

Readymade vs Custom made

We’ve written a lot about the difference between readymade curtains and custom made curtains for the flexibility it gives you with sizes and curtain drop rather than being restricted to the standard sizes available for readymade curtains.



Custom made

Less expensive

Will cost more

No wait time

Mass produced

Bespoke product just for you

Less versatile choice

Versatile choice of fabrics and designs

Measuring your curtains
