Curtain Pleats


After choosing your curtain fabric, the next decision is curtain pleats. The right pleat can make all the difference to the finished look. Our experienced team will talk you through the options to help you select the best choice for your curtains.

Pleat Terms Explained

Fullness - The amount of fabric needed to cover a particular width. A 2.0 fullness would require 2m of fabric for every 1m you want to cover. This varies according to pleat type, meaning some pleats require more fabric than others.

Header - This is the vertical size of the tape/pleat we use. Typically, a larger header is used for houses with a high stud. The header size should increase relative to the vertical drop of the curtains to maintain the pleat and achieve a proportional look.


Wave Pleat

Wave pleat curtains have no gathering or bunching at the top – just a soft curve for a relaxed, contemporary style. For those wanting a ring and eyelet look and feel but with windows wider then 3m this is a great choice. We can install more brackets to hold the weight of the curtains across wider windows. This style works best with soft fabrics like linen and voiles and is a great option for sheer curtains.

  • Modern/Contemporary homes
  • Great alternative to a Ring & Eyelet Pleat when the width is more then 3m
  • Needs to hang under a Rod or Thick Square Track
  • Great for patterned fabrics as the heading is uninterrupted
