With their tightly uniform pleats and straight, cascading hang, pencil pleat curtains toe the perfect line between classic and contemporary.
The gather-tape style of the header for these particular blockout curtains enables you to adjust the fullness or openness of the curtain panel, meaning that you can totally customise the look and hang of your curtain. The pencil pleat style is also a great way to update your old curtains and keep your existing track intact, as you can adjust the width of your curtains very easily to suit your design and decor needs.
And here at Quickfit, you no longer have to choose between quality and quantity, as we have a range of pencil pleat blockout curtains available in a number of curtain fabrics and colours to complement most design preferences, ranging from dark navy blues to neutral creams and greys.

The Benefits of Pencil Pleat Curtains
Pencil pleat curtains are versatile for so many more reasons than just their classic look and feel alone. For starters, our pencil pleat blockout curtains can be hung on a wide range of different curtain tracks or rods, making them a great choice for any room in your home. This means that whether you’re looking for lounge room curtains for elevating family movie nights, or triple weave bedroom blockout curtains to facilitate a good night’s sleep, you’ll be sure to find a pencil pleat blockout curtain panel that ticks all boxes right here at Quickfit.
Another major selling point for pencil pleat blockout curtains is their ability to complement a wide range of interior design styles. With a wide range of colours and fabrics to select from, all you DIY designers will easily be able to find the perfect set of pencil pleat blockout curtains to fit any interior design style. And as we said, due to the gather-tape used on this traditional header style, you have the option to reduce or increase the fullness of your curtains with minimal hassle, much like you’d expect from a pair of modern eyelet curtains. For maximum fullness and a luxurious look, we recommend installing curtains that are at least 50% wider than your windows.
Being curtains with blockout functionalities, the material of our pencil pleat blockout curtains is also thicker and more durable than traditional pencil pleat or even pinch pleat curtains. This thicker make is perfect for not only preventing light from filtering through your curtain fabric, but also regulating the temperature across your home’s interiors. In other words, your pencil pleat blockout curtains may also be able to reduce your household’s overall energy costs, allowing you and your family to accrue serious savings over years.
How to Hang your Pencil Pleat Blockout Curtains
Have any of our pencil pleat blockout curtains caught your eye yet? If you’re on the cusp of making your curtain purchasing decisions final, then all that’s left to do is await the impending arrival of your curtains in the post and prepare your windows to be dressed to the max.
If you’re looking to get a grasp on how to hang your pencil pleat curtains, you’ll be happy to hear that hanging up these particular panels can be just as easy as adjusting the curtains themselves.
Most of our pencil pleat blockout curtains use a special hook type- a gather-tape header with three hook positions. The reason this tape has three hook positions to choose from is to give you more freedom when hanging your curtains to different styles of curtain tracks, curtain rods or poles. With pinch pleat curtains, you have the option of either style to suit your preference. In order to hide your curtain track or pole entirely, simply use your hooks on the bottom row of header tape. If you’d like your curtain track or pole to be visible from eye height, just use the middle or tops on your header’s gather-tape. It’s as easy as that!
