As you may or may not know we, at The Bed Post have teamed up with Lorraine Elizabeth bespoke curtains and blinds to offer a complete bespoke made to measure curtain and blind service and the one common question we often get asked is:-
"How much does it cost to have curtains made to measure?"
Made to measure curtains can cost as little as £300, or as much as £1000+
Why such a big difference in price?
Basically, it boils down to there being many factors that go into the price of made to measure curtains.
What things that influence the cost of made to measure curtains?
Things like fabric choice, lining choice, drop, width, style and finish need to be considered before a final price can be given.
Fabric prices can range anywhere between £13 per metre to £100s per metre, linings and interlinings vary in price as well.
A simple pair of lined pencil pleat gather headed curtains would take a lot less materials and time to make than the same pair of pencil pleat gather headed curtains that have hand stitched interlining and thermal lining in them.
However, by adding a layer of interlining you have transformed the visible drape, weight and feel of the curtains.
You have now added a luxury finish.
On a sliding scale the cost of made to measure curtains starts with unlined, machined pencil pleat gather curtains at the lowest end, then continues to rise in cost as you add those extra touches.
Things like interlining or black out lining.
Eyelets or hand finished pleats demand more time, fabrics and hardware.
Even the act of adding to the length of the track will add to the cost of the curtains.
So whilst it is impossible to say how much your made to measure curtains will cost, you can reasonably expect to pay more than double the price than for “off the shelf “ ready made curtains, BUT they will be tailor made perfectly to your window’s measurements and finish will be ten times better than you can imagine.
