Before you get going

Designing your dream curtains

The fun starts with designing how your curtains will fit, so channel your inner stylist and get creative! This is about finding your dream look and getting custom curtains that fit and function perfectly.

Curtains that hang from your ceiling are called ceiling mount:

  • give a sense of space and draw focus to the height of your room
  • curtains are best attached to ceiling battens
  • our curved tracks are perfect for corners with 90 degree angles
  • fit your track inside your corner or wrapped around your corner and choose 1 or 2 bends (for more than 2 bends please call us)
  • great option for a straight edge ceiling and to fit inside cornices
  • opt for double tracks to layer curtains and check out some gorgeous inspiration
  • go for sheers for a soft and floaty look and blockout fabrics to stop all light coming in
  • keep it on trend with a left stack or right stack, or pick centre opening for easy access to both sides of your window
  • customise your track flow by choosing a fixed flow or free flow
  • get the luxe look with an S fold or go traditional with pleated curtains
  • choose from 3 finishes - just off the floor, touching the floor or puddled
  • pick your perfect hem and for premium linens opt for our 100 mm hem for a luxe look
  • opt for our designer or residential track in white to blend seamlessly with light walls and in black or silver to tie in with similar features in your home
  • for larger drops go for a longer wand or no wand at all
  • combine curtains with roller blinds, giving you all the options to control light and privacy

OK it's time to start measuring,
let's take it step by step.

Measuring up your corner windows for ceiling mount curtains is easy, here's how to do it:

1 Check your corner angle(s)

Check that the angle of your corner window or wall is 90 degrees (at a right angle). For tracks to fit inside your corner you can hold up an A4 piece of paper into your corner and if it fits snugly you have a 90 degree corner. If you are wrapping around a corner check it's on a 90 degree bend too.

Remember to call us if you'd like to order a curved track for more than 2 corners.

If you're not sure or your angles are different contact us and we will help!

4 Measure your splits: optional

  • 4 A measure ceiling corner window curtains A

    For centre opening and free flow curtains you can choose up to 2 splits and tell us exactly where you'd like them. Splitting your curtains is a fantastic option for bi fold and sliding doors so you can easily move sections of your curtains to access your doors.

    Make a note of how many splits you'd like in your curtains and choose which side(s) of your corner window you'd like the splits on. We will assume that your splits are evenly spaced if you don't give us split measurements.

    If you don't want any splits you can skip to step 5.

  • 4 B measure ceiling corner window curtains B

    For one curtain split measure the width from the left across to where your split will be and write it down. You're measuring on the wall your split will be on.

    If you're measuring from the left outside edge of your window frame or recess add your left stack allowance in mm to your width, so your curtains stack off your window glass. Write down this measurement.

  • 4 C measure ceiling corner window curtains C

    For two or more curtain splits measure the widths from the left across to each split position and write them down. For each split measure on the wall your split will be on.

    If you're measuring one or both splits from the left outside edge of your window frame or recess, add your left stack allowance in mm to one or both widths, so your curtains stack off your window glass. Write down these measurements.

5 Measure your drop

  • 5 A measure ceiling corner window curtains A

    For 1 corner curtains measure from your ceiling down to the floor on the left wall, in the corner and on the right wall. If you have cornices, you'll measure from the inside of your cornice. Write down the largest of all three.

  • 5 B measure ceiling corner window curtains B

    For 2 corner curtains measure from your ceiling down to the floor on the left wall, middle wall and on the right wall. If you have cornices, you'll measure from the inside of your cornice. Write down the largest of all three.

    Go for puddling if your 3 measurements have a greater than 10 mm difference.

6 Choose your finish

When you design and order your curtains choose from the three finish options below.

Please only provide the hard measurements to us and please don't make any deductions or additions. We'll make the necessary adjustments so you get the perfect finish.

If you choose curtains just off the floor they will be approximately 5 - 10 mm shorter than your drop measurement, and they will hover just above your floor.

If you choose curtains touching the floor they will skim your floor by up to 5 mm.

If you choose puddling your curtains will puddle on your floor by 20 mm. If you'd like a larger puddle let us know when you call to order.

7 Choose your wand and how your curtains open

Note down which wand you want. It sounds obvious but the larger your drop, the larger your wand needs to be so you can reach it.

Also note down whether you want left stack, right stack, or centre opening curtains. Think about which side is easiest to reach, obstruction free and which part of your window you'll want to open often. When you order you'll also need to choose between a fixed flow and a free flow, which is where your curtains open in any direction.
