The benefits of ready-made curtains

  1. Delivery times are faster: Because the curtains have been made and are ready for purchase and hanging, you don’t need to wait too long to receive them.
  2. The easiest option is to choose the style and size that you want (or the closest match).
  3. The latest trends in curtains: Because readymade curtains are made to sell quickly, they feature the most popular design and colour schemes.
  4. Pricing transparency: You can see the cost right away and decide if it fits into your budget.

The best way to block light and keep a room warm is by covering the entire window. The curtains should start at the top of the frame or even up to ceiling height and then go all the way down (either stopping just a few millimetres away from the ground, or touching the floor and pooling).
