Ideas on how to choose curtains for a wide window?

Wide windows make a stunning focal point whether they’re situated in the living room, bedroom, kitchen or dining room - but to really get the most out of them they need to be dressed correctly. Our latest article guides you through the benefits of choosing curtains for the wide windows in your home, and showcases some of our favourite fabric designs.

Add personality with colour and pattern

The best thing about choosing curtains for the wide windows in your home is that they also introduce colour, pattern and texture to a space. Whether you love modern geometric prints, traditional floral designs or punchy plains, our collection will have just what you need to create a beautiful new look at your window. Simply browse our curtain designs online, then make an appointment to see, and feel, the samples at home.

Protect your privacy

Wide windows can mean privacy pains – especially if your windows look out onto a busy road or if neighbours are close by. To overcome these issues, whilst also creating a lovely look at your windows, choose voile curtains. Made with sheer, translucent fabric, voile curtains are designed to be drawn during the day to protect your privacy, whilst still allowing you to enjoy the natural light. Our collection includes a range of whites, creams, greys as well as a selection of patterned designs.

Made-to-measure curtains for any size window

We’ve been dressing windows for over 40 years, so we know that windows come in all shapes and sizes. Our curtains can be made to almost any width, so are a convenient choice for a range of wide windows including patio doors, bay windows and French doors. Just choose your favourite fabric and our team will accurately measure and fit your curtains, so your windows can become the focal point you’ve always dreamed of.

Keep windows free from obstruction

Another reason why curtains are a great choice for dressing wide windows is that they can be stacked at the sides when they’re not in use, leaving your window free from any obstruction. This is especially useful for working wide windows – like patio doors that open out into the garden. A pair of matching tie-backs, as seen in this open-plan space, add a pretty decorative touch. Your advisor will happily take you through all of the accessory options available for your curtains – including headings, linings, poles, tie-backs and coordinating cushions – during your in-home appointment.
