Net curtains are the simplest and easiest way to keep your home private yet still allow light to enter. Nets are a constant barrier from nosey parkers whereas Blinds are usually either open or closed!
They’re not only cost effective but also super easy care – A quick hand wash and drip dry! Net curtains are assumed to be traditional patterns, maybe even old fashioned, however over the years Nets have become more modern and up to date – much more popular with the younger generation.
They offer a wide range in sizes, which is great – as some times it can work out very costly to have blinds made specifically. Plus all this, they’re easy to fit! You can use rods, wires, thin poles – most of which now are available with adhesive hooks to attach, or tension themselves without any fitments – which is fantastic as no one wants to go to the effort of drilling if they don’t have to – which also makes nets great for temporary use.
The main range varies from Café Nets, Caravan Nets and Standard Nets.
Café Nets – Mostly found in Kitchens, the café nets are only designed in small drops, as they can be hung from the top of the window, or nearer the bottom, or in some cases, both. – As shown below, Poppy Café Curtain.
Caravan Nets – Associated with Caravans, as they generally have smaller windows than the usual house – However in some cases, bathroom/Landing windows have been this size. Available in 27”, 30” and 33” all slotted tops.
Standard Nets – Available in 11 different drops and over 40 designs. Ranging from 36” drop to 90” drop – and some fantastic styles to choose from! One of our more popular designs shown below: 3988 – A pretty all over floral pattern
As a rule, nets generally have a slot top around 1” width which allows them to run smoothly along a wire, rod or thin pole. It is essential to have the correct amount of gather. We always recommend 2.5 x the width of your window – this allows a neat pleat to run throughout the curtain, looking smart and effective. Although everyone has their own preference – Some prefer more, some prefer less, it’s all a matter of finding the correct balance to suit!
