“I needed advice on and making of made to measure curtains and blinds for my period house in the West Highlands of Scotland, which I bought recently. As I come from Bristol, I went to Gardiner Haskins curtain soft furnishings department in Bristol. The choice of fabric types and patterns was better than I’d seen anywhere else. Most importantly, the staff are very experienced really knew about curtains and blinds, helping me make the right choices : fabric, colour, lining and heading – along with right selection of curtain poles for a 1900 house. It was so important to get the choices right and the advice and help was invaluable. Gardiner Haskins made the curtains and blinds, all of which have clearly been made by professional staff and the finish is faultless.
Everything needed transporting to Scotland, which Gardiner Haskins arranged, including packing, and got delivered no problem. The curtains and blinds are all now fitted and look perfect.

You have complete control over your curtains so that you can make them the focal point of the room that will wow your guests.
How to measure your window for custom made curtains
Part of achieving that perfect, finished look with your made to measure curtains is making sure you measure correctly. As long as our team have the right measurements they can create a pair of beautiful curtains to your specifications.
Measuring Width: don’t measure the window unless you want wall to wall curtains, you should measure the total width of your track or pole (excluding finials). Allow for overlap of around 2.5cm for where the curtains will meet in the middle and overlap each other slightly.
Measuring Length: for curtains that fall just below your window sill then measure for them to sit 1.25cm above the sill. For curtains below the sill allow them to fall 15cm below the sill. Floor length curtains usually finish about 1.5cm from the floor, unless you want them to trail on the floor.
