    What we say about pinch pleat curtains

    • A pinch pleat header is sewn into place for a tailored look
    • A double pinch pleat header is a good choice for patterned fabrics, as less of the pattern is gathered into the folds
    • A triple pinch pleat header is best for a more sophisticated, tailored appearance
    • Can be fitted onto a curtain pole or track

    Questions on our curtains?

    See answers to our most frequently asked questions on pinch pleat curtains. If you have a question about our service or your appointment, see our FAQs here.

    What are Pinch pleat curtains?

    Pinch pleat curtains have an elegant and highly decorative heading, where the fabric is drawn together into stitched pleats at the top. Choose a double pinch or a triple pinch, depending upon your personal style. Read more about Pinch pleat curtains here.

    How do I hang Pinch pleat curtains?

    It can be tricky to hang Pinch pleat curtains, since you need to install the hooks at the exactly the correct points so that the length is how you want it. We will fit your curtains precisely as part of our service so that the length is perfect. Read more about our service here.

    How do I measure for Pinch pleat curtains?

    The width of your curtains depends on the width of your window, how much space you have around it, and the overall look you’re trying to achieve. The depth of your curtains is dependent upon where your curtain pole or track is positioned. You may wish to position it as high as possible if you’re trying to make your window look taller. Consider too if you want your curtains to puddle on the floor. Your local advisor will give you advice on all of these factors at your in-home appointment.

    Can Pinch pleat curtains go on a track?

    Yes, they can go on a curtain track or pole.

    Do Pinch Pleat curtains keep heat in?

    Yes, all our made-to–measure curtains can help you retain the heat in your room and help to banish draughts. Your local advisor will give you expert advice at your in-home appointment to find the best solution to help keep your room warmer.
