Whilst we’re enjoying the last weeks of Summer it’s hard to imagine the chilly evenings that lie ahead but before long, central heating will be turned on and fires will be lit.
So if you’re contemplating new curtains or blinds it’s well worth considering having them interlined. Interlining is like a vest for your curtains or blinds. The extra layer is carefully stitched between the outer fabric and the lining. As with our own clothing this additional layer will help to keep us snug during the Autumn and Winter months.
Interlined curtains and blinds will appear more plump and voluminous giving an air of luxury. The extra weight will also enable your curtains to drape with effortless grace.
Apart from the thickest of fabrics, interlining will enhance your curtains or blinds and is an absolute ‘must’ for thinner fabrics such as silk and faux silk.
Other ways to increase the cosy factor through the cooler months is to have floor length curtains which return to the wall at either side. These Curtain Returns prevent heat from escaping at the sides. Pelmets will also help to retain the heat during the Winter and if you adopt all three of these measures, there will be few escape routes for the warmth in your room.
All of our curtains and blinds have an optional interlining whether ordered online or in store. If you are ordering online and would like the curtains to have ‘Returns’ just note the distance from the track or pole to the wall for each side and add this to the curtain width measurement or refer to our Measuring Guide.
Our pelmets are all bespoke so if you prefer to design your own, we can create something distinctive and unique for you.
Rugs will bring warmth and colour to a seating area and they’re great if you prefer to relax on the floor and spread out (apparently this is very good for you). We carry an irresistible selection of stylish rugs in our showrooms with various size, colour and texture options.
