Cottage header curtains, also known as cottage pleat or puff-ball curtains, are characterised by their soft gathers and relaxed style. They are a popular choice for cottage and country-style homes. The curtain fabric gathers onto a heading tape sewn to the top of the curtain to create a top frill which folds over when the curtains are closed. Cottage heading curtains are often used in bedrooms and other rooms where a more casual atmosphere is preferred. These curtains are a great way to add charm and style and are relatively easy to hang and maintain.
Our custom-made cottage header curtains are handcrafted to fit any window perfectly. We can craft pencil-type headings with either an informal upstand or a floppy top, deep or shallow. The curtain fabric stacks back loosely in keeping with the relaxed, informal style. The soft, gathered effect is perfect for any casual or country-inspired décor. All our cottage heading curtains are handmade, so we take all measurements to ensure the perfect fit.
Cottage header curtains can be made with various fabrics but usually with lightweight materials such as cotton, linen, chambray or voile. Lighter fabrics gather more easily and create a softer look. We can source thousands of fabrics in a myriad of colours and patterns so we can easily match your décor. We can help you choose the right fabric to suit the style of the room, from a traditional cottage style to a more modern interior.
Cottage heading curtains are a versatile and economical option for curtains in any room. They are ideal for creating a soft, relaxed, and inviting atmosphere. Cottage curtains are often chosen to enhance the comfortable and laid-back atmosphere in cottage-style interiors, but they can work well in many types of room. Lightweight and sheer materials will give an open, breezy feel, while heavier fabrics have a more substantial look. The choice of fabric and colour further contribute to the aesthetic.
