Spring and Summer time is finally here and many of us are thinking about new net curtains either for the home, holiday homes or caravans.
We stock a wide range of net curtains in different designs and drops which can all be viewed at our shops in Dorset and Somerset. If you’re not local to us and would like a sample of any of our net curtains view our online range here and then contact us with your details and information on the sample you would like.
Have a look at our guide on how to measure your your net curtains.
Measuring for net curtains involves taking two measurements on your window. If you already have a net curtain wire or net curtain rod in place measure the drop from the wire or rod to where you want the curtain to end. If not, then measure from the top of the frame (not the glass), inside the window reveal. For the width measure the width of the existing wire or net curtain rod, or the frame if none is currently fitted.
Net curtains come in standard drops with a hem made at the top for the net curtain wire or rod to pass through, so the next step is to choose the nearest drop to your measurement. This may be slightly less or more than your measurement and still work for your window. If a standard drop is not quite right for your window, you can shorten the curtain net by turning over the top hem, or our seamstresses can shorten the next longest drop to your measurement. The standard drops available are:
- 30cm / 12″
- 40cm / 16″
- 45cm / 18″
- 60cm / 24″
- 90cm / 36″
- 101cm / 40″
- 106cm / 42″
- 114cm / 45″
- 137cm / 54″
- 153cm / 60″
- 160cm / 63″
- 183cm / 72″
- 206cm / 81″
- 229cm / 90″
- 275cm / 108″
Once you know which drop you want, you need to decide how full to have your curtains. The standard fullness is 2 x your width measurement, but if you want additional privacy you can go for 2.5 or even 3 times fullness. Multiply your width measurement by the fullness you’ve chosen and that gives the length of net curtain fabric you need to buy. Most net curtains do not fray, so you can leave the edges as cut. If you prefer a hemmed edge, you can do this yourself or our seamstresses can hem them for you.
