While blinds are often considered to be ideal option for a modern look, curtains work equally well, and usually more effective insulation from cold and noise

Two Tone

Eyelet Heading

Tab Top

This is an inexpensive way to create a smart contemporary look; combine two fabrics in different colours and textures such as linen and velvet. Using two shades of the same colour has stylish impact.

A curtain pole threaded through metal eyelets in the top of the fabric panels creates a simple look that stacks neatly with no rings or tracks. Perfect for an understated contemporary interior.

Requiring less fabric than gathered or pleated headings, tab tops are a cost-effective way to use expensive fabrics. For added interest, decorative hold-backs will create an appealing shape.

Soft Pelmet

Hard Pelmet

Clip On

While they are associated with traditional decorating schemes, pelmets have been embraced by designers of contemporary interiors. Fabrics can be stiffened with buckram to give them a more solid look.

Pelmets can also be made from wood that can either be painted or covered with fabric. For a sleek, pareddown look,create a pelmet that runs the entire length of the wall and blends with the wall colour.

The simplest type of heading is made from clipon-rings. Available at haberdashers,they are unlikely to be robust enough to hold heavy curtains but are ideal for lightweight panels such as sheers.



This style of curtain is a natural choice for period houses. If you want to create a restrained feel, consider using fabrics and accessories in a subtle palette of colours

Swags and Tails

Fringed Self Valance

Shaped Pelmet

This style is a classic ingredient for the English country-house look and is ideal for formal dining and sitting rooms. To soften the elaborate appearance, use fabrics and trimmings in neutral tones.

The valance on this curtain is made from a width of fabric attached to the head of the curtain .The fringe on the sides and botteom edgematching the trim on the curtains leading edge-creates a neat finish.

For a discreetly decorative feel, this hard, shaped pelmet is a great option. Here, definition has been achieved by adding braid to both the pelmet and the fabric tie-backs.

Gathered Valance

Simple Swag

Box Pelmet

This valance combines a gather with a deep upstand (the fabric that protrudes up from the pole). Ideal for bedrooms, it is often made with a floral fabric and is perfect for creating a country style.

The combination of elaborate swags and patterned fabric can create quite a theatrical look, but when they are made from plain fabrics such as silk or linen they offer a simpler, more classic feel.

This is a great way to create a neat, traditional look. There is a wide variety of pelmet finishes on offer such as painted, gilded and wood. A pair of elegant tie-backs or holdbacks complete the look.

Curtains CLASSIC

Combine simple details, restrained fabrics and effortless functionality to create a pair of curtains that will look good in any setting and stand the test of time

Pencil Pleats

Shaped Pelmet

Pleated Pelmet

With its simple, restrained feel, this style of heading is suited to a wide range of interiors from living rooms to bedrooms. Depending on the look you want to create, the pleats can be shallow or deep.

This style of shaped fabric pelmet, stiffened with buckram, offers a great opportunity to create a Geometric, Art Deco feel. A plain linen fabric in a muted shade would be ideal for this style.

Box pleating is a great option for a wide variety of different types of upholstery and soft furnishing. On this design it lends a smart, tailored look that is perfect for living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms.

Self Valance

Button Detailing

Tie-Top Heading

To create this smart design, the band of fabric added to the top of the curtain has been given a box pleat. A classic choice of fabric would be a damask design in a rich opulent colour such as deep red.

Fabric-covered buttons in either a matching or contrasting fabric make a tab-top heading more decorative. Button kits are available from haberdashers-or look out for ready-made leather buttons.

For a relaxed look, consider a tie-top heading made from the same fabric and sewn to the top of the curtain. Bear in mind that this isn't necessarily as practical as rings or tracks.
