made to measure curtains
Williamsons Factory Shop brings you the finest range of made to measure curtains, roman blinds and accessories, as well as a stunning range of fabrics by the metre. We currently hold over 220 innovative and stylish designs for you to choose from. You can specify which linings you prefer, whether it be our standard polycotton, blackout, or uper sateen linings. Our fully trained staff are always on hand to guide and advise you when making your choice. 


Pencil Pleat

Pencil pleat is the standard heading for curtains and valances. A 3" tape is used with 3 hook po
itions to suit all types of track and pole. When ordering pencil pleat curtains measure your pole from one finial (decorative end) to the other. For tracks, measure your track from one end to the other and add on any overlaps or returns if applicable. Once you have these measurements our staff will then advise you on the best width to suit your track or pole.

Tab Tops

Tab Top is a contempory heading suitable only for poles. Each tab measures approximately 3" wide by 4" deep. The overall drop of the curtain includes the length of the tab. When measuring for tab tops, measure your pole from one finial to the other. Tab top headings usually require fewer widths of fabric than other headings, generally making them more economical to purchase.

Ring Tops

Ring top. or eyelet curtains as they are also known, is a contempory, alternative for poles only. The rings are available in 40mm and 25mm sizes with a choice of 7 colours. There are 8 rings per width. When ordering ring top headings, please give us your pole width, measuring your pole from one finial to the other and we will recommend the best width to suit your pole. For the drop simply measure from the top of the pole, where the ring would sit, to your required length.

3" and 6" Pinch pleat headings

Pinch pleat is a decorative heading for curtains and valances, suitable for all types of track and pole. Pinch pleats are more gathered than other headings and have permanent sewn in pleats, giving them a more luxurious, tailored look. We use buckram pinch pleat and hooks are supplied with each order. When measuring for poles, measure from one finial to the other. For tracks, measure the track from one end to the other, adding on any overlaps or returns if applicable. Pinch pleats often require more widths of fabric for a given track/pole width, so often work out more expensive than other headings. Please note, as pinch pleat is a fixed, sewn in heading, it is imperative that you quote an accurate track or pole width. This will allow us to gather your curtains to the correct width. 

Roman blinds

All the fabrics in our current range are available to order as roman blinds. All blinds come fully lined, and if required, can be ordered with blackout linings or a super sateen lining. Blinds are supplied with a cord lock roman blind track as standard. Sidewinder controls can be ordered at an additional cost. When measuring the width of your roman blind to fit in a recess, measure the width of the recess in 3 different positions. Do the same again for the drop. For measuring a blind to sit on the outside of the window, simply measure where you would like the blind to fit and supply us with the exact measurement.


Q I only want half a pair (i.e 1 curtain for a door) Is this possible?

A Yes. We would simply charge half the price of a pair

Q I have a very small window. Can I have a small pair made?

A Yes. We can make a pair of curtains 0.5 widths per curtain. This would be charged the same as half a pair. Unfortunately we cannot cut widths down i.e 0.75 of a width.

Q Can I have a longer drop than 274cms or wider than 3 widths?

A We can go to 3 metres drop and 5 widths wide. This does depend on the fabric and heading treatment however.

 Should I order my product lined or unlined?

A Curtains and valances are available both lined and unlined. We recommend that products are lined to improve the drape and appearance as well as giving them added protection. Lined products are lined using a polycotton lining as standard. Super sateen and blackout linings are available at an
extra cost.

Q Everything I am ordering is for the same room. Will it pattern match?

A Curtains will pattern match within the pair free of charge. Curtains, valances and roman blinds with the same drop will also pattern match free of charge. Due to pattern usage, and a more complicated manufacturing process, should you require curtains, valances, or roman blinds with different drops to pattern match, then a 10% surcharge will be applied per pair, valance, roman blind. This must be requested when ordering.
