When you are decorating your home, there are certain areas that you can spend a little less on and no one will really know the difference. That coffee table you got at a charity shop probably looks just as good as the one in the designer showroom in the city. And it's tough to spot the differences between a throw you got at a clearance price and one that cost ten times as much. But there are other areas where you shouldn't spend less because it can have a negative impact on the overall look of your space. One of those items where it's worth the investment is in custom-made curtains.

You might think that getting custom-made curtains can be expensive, time-consuming, and a hassle. That might have been true a long time ago, but today it's easier than ever to get curtains that are made to fit the windows of your home. That's especially true when you are working with the right custom curtain creator, such as QuickFit. We've updated the process for getting curtains made-to-measure so they look incredible in your home without costing you too much money or taking up too much of your time. 

QuickFit has been helping people get curtains that are perfect for their windows for years and we do it all at a great price. Here are some of the reasons our customers believe that every penny they spend on custom made curtains is worth it.

Why It's Worth Getting Your Curtains Custom Made

It's no more expensive than off-the-shelf curtains.

A lot of homeowners are under the impression that custom-made curtains are far more expensive than ready-made curtains. That's often not the case. In fact, when you take into account the customisation that goes into your curtains and the quality of the craftsmanship, your custom curtains are often the far better deal. They are made from high-quality materials that are made to last for years so you won't have to replace your curtains nearly as often, either, making them even more affordable over their lifetime. Ready-made curtains that are created from inferior materials can be difficult to hang and maintain, meaning you'll be paying more to replace them sooner anyway. And if you can spend a similar amount of money to get something that's absolutely right, wouldn't you rather avoid the hassle of dealing with something that is almost right?

It adds value & style to your home.

There is something really special about custom curtains. They just look better. Sure, you could probably fake it with ready made curtains for a little while, but the additional work you put into making them look right is just taking your attention away from other projects you could be working on in your home. The added style is more than just pleasing to the eye, too; it could actually increase the value of your home. After all, first impressions are everything when it comes to impressing potential buyers. If you've gone to the effort of putting custom-made curtains into your home, they'll know you've taken care of the rest of the house, too, and be prepared to pay a premium for your property.

It's easy to measure and order.

Many of our customers are surprised to learn how easy it is to measure for custom-made curtains. There is nothing tricky about the process. We've created a number of guides that will walk you through measuring for your curtains, step-by-step, so you get exactly what you need. Essentially, you'll want to measure the width of the window and double it, then measure from your curtain rod (or where it will be located) to where you want the curtains to fall. Most decorators and homeowners recommend measuring down to the floor, even if your window isn't that big. It gives the illusion of a bigger window that way. Once you have your measurements, pick out your fabric and header style, insert your measurements on the purchase page, and we'll take care of the rest. We can have most orders made and at your door in a matter of just a few days!

You get exactly what you want.

You shouldn't have to compromise when it comes to your home decor, especially when it comes to your curtains. You've probably put a lot of time and effort into creating a space that's perfect for you, your friends, and your family. When you purchase ready-made curtains, you often have to compromise on style and fabrics just to get something that works. When you get custom-made curtains, though, you'll be getting the curtains you actually want and be able to hang them with the confidence of knowing they were made to fit your window. You work hard to make your home beautiful, and getting the right curtains is a big part of that process.
