Deciding on how to customise your curtains can be daunting with so many styles and features available.

One of the most important options is choosing which header style to choose. The header is how the fabric attaches to the pole or track and deciphers how the curtain hangs.

We thought we'd put this article together for those who are less familiar with curtains and heading styles to understand what an eyelet curtain is and which styles and rooms are best suited.

So what are eyelet curtains?

Eyelet curtains are famous for their simplicity. They have metal loops at the top of the fabric, which attach to your curtain pole.

Easily hung, they slide onto the curtain pole and take just a little arranging to get the folds sitting exactly how you like. An excellent choice for those that want a quick and fuss-free solution.

Main qualities of eyelet curtains

  • An eyelet heading gives a contemporary look with large, even folds.
  • With an eyelet finish, the folds stack neatly.
  • Suitable for hanging on curtain poles (not suitable for tracks).
  • The easiest type of curtain to hang and take down.
  • They can be made to your exact measurements.

What styles and rooms are best for eyelet curtains?

If you love the modern look as much as we do, these are the curtains for you.

Master the art of understated with a plain neutral fabric. The texture will bring depth, while the clean lines keep in with more minimal and contemporary interior tastes.

Alternatively, choose a pattern or bold colour if you want to add punch to your modern space, along with some well-considered accessories to balance your colour scheme.

Eyelet curtains are excellent for many rooms in any modern home, but our customers often choose them for living rooms, dining rooms and bedrooms.
