Get The Look For Less: Designer Inspired Custom Curtains


Looking to spruce up your home decor without breaking the bank? Have you been searching high and low for affordable luxury curtain styles? Then you’ll love this post!

The curtains are made from synthetic materials, mainly polyester or a polyester cotton blend which makes them much more affordable than velvet, linen or 100% cotton. 

Why Are They More Affordable?

Yes! If you order through Amazon you can purchase a variety of standard lengths and widths, but you can also order completely custom sizes. 

Are They Really Custom?

These curtain panels are available with many header options, including rod pocket, grommets and pleats. In my opinion, the pleats are what really make these curtains look high end.

What Makes Them Look High End?

Just like when you’re looking for the perfect paint color, it’s important to sample first. Fabric colors will look different depending on the lighting conditions in the room, as well as whether there’s a liner or not.

Color Options

The blackout liner is great for bedrooms and nurseries, however I highly recommend getting the memory shape training if you opt for this liner. Otherwise, the fabric is heavy and has a hard time retaining its pleats even when it has been trained.

Liner Options

Curtains should be hung high and wide. This means you’ll hang the rod about 2/3 of the way between the top of the window trim and ceiling. On standard 8 foot ceilings, this will mean about 2- 2.5 inches below the ceiling.
