Our little house is quirky and whilst this is exactly what made us fall head over heels with our home the first time we set eyes on it. It also has drawbacks, such as odd sized window, wonky floors and steep stairs. So choosing curtains off the peg was never an option, every window in house is different which means the only way is to buy Made To Measure Curtains.
To be honest this is not something I mind, I have never been one to want the same as the next person. I love bespoke, being able to choose exactly the colour and design I want.
Being At Home Is Giving Us More Time To Do Jobs.
I promised myself after finishing the kitchen and garden room that that was it for a year. However, the world then changed, we were at home and the cogs got turning.
Our lounge windows are huge, they frame the outside world beautifully. As such we spend a lot of time taking in the gorgeous views. The sun rising in the morning, the twinkling lights of the town as the day draws in. There is always something to see, and a different perspective of the world to enjoy.
However the way they are framed is equally important! Therefore we have grabbed the current situation and decided that the way to deal with it is to keep busy. Thus using the time for all the jobs we won’t want to do when life returns to normal, when going out become the new staying in. So seizing this opportunity seemed right and fitting.
Recently the lovely people at Couture Living offered us the opportunity to choose new curtains. Fortunately we chose lounge curtains, therefore once the current situation developed we decided that this was indeed a golden opportunity to decorate the lounge at the same time.

How Do You Order Made To Measure Curtains Online?
At first I felt overwhelmed, where do you start choosing fabric for curtains? But Couture Living makes it so easy for you to choose and also offer’s a sample service.
Searching For Fabric On The Couture Living Website.
There is a huge choice of fabrics to choose from. However the website makes it simple to narrow down your choices. Offering filters for colour, brand, fabric, price, and theme, enabling you to narrow down choices to suit your requirements, taste and budget.
Ordering Fabric Samples Online With Couture Living
Once I had chosen a shortlist I was able to order samples for a small cost of £6 for 6 samples. This step is crucial, my final choice was a sample I popped in my basket but wasn’t sure of.
The front runner was a strong floral pattern. I wasn’t sure if I liked the texture of the Clarke & Clarke, Glenmore Aveimore Duckegg fabric which proved to be my favourite and final choice once the samples arrived. Getting to see and feel the fabric samples proved to be essential in the decision process.

Once you have measured following the guide, fill in the online form, select your fabric to see the price. This is such a handy option if you are working to a budget.

Couture Living Delivery
Our curtains arrived within 2 weeks, I received confirmation of the date of delivery and they arrived boxed and wrapped in tissue to prevent creases.
The Made To Measure Curtains Are Easy To Hang With Detailed Instructions
The box also included full hanging instructions, and the tapes were ready to hang with hooks in place, I love that the tape has 4 heights which gives a little flexibility, allowing you to tweak the height slightly. There was also an additional supply of hooks in the box.
In Conclusion, Am I pleased With My Couture Living Curtains And The Service They Provide?
Absolutely, my curtains were a gift. However, I am thrilled with the service, communication and quality of the curtains.
I had not considered buying made to measure home furnishing online before, yet, my experience has been nothing but positive. The curtains arrived well wrapped and easy to hang. Just because we can’t go out doesn’t mean we cant decorate. Quite the opposite, it’s a wonderful time to get jobs done!
