since got some voucher for Fella Design.

Was thinking to do curtain there. Any review? smile.gif


I'd measure the main window, width = 180cm, height = 210cm and its 30cm from ground.

What is the recommend size for curtain? shall make 5cm extra at each side?
or just ngam ngam the size ?

Add at least 2 inches at each side.

Then double up ur width as well, so ur curtain will look nicer (like wavy/curvy).
I believe the shop will help u to calculate if u give them the window measurement.

I'd say a bare minimum of 6 inches left/right and bottom. That also is barely enough to cover... still will be able to see through if u look thru the window at an angle. (depending on what kind of curtain rails u use.)

Go for 1 foot left/right if your wall space permits. That's for curtain rail length.

Curtain cloth length, go according to how much pleating you want, whether you want flat effect or very wavy effect.

If you want to seek professionals to do your curtain, then give them the measurement and they would tell you how much material you need to buy and reserve for "pleats".

Even if you do not want their service, i.e. you want to ask someone else to sew your curtain; you can still always "pretend" by visiting any curtain showroom, and tell them your measurement. They would tell you how much you need to reserve. wink.gif

normally i do suggest extra 6inch left right for my customer, unless customer themself have other specific requirement.

for curtain height, normally is about half inch from the floor. cuz it looks nicer and elegant if the curtain length longer

sometimes those tailor made shop (Macy, Fella) did provide & include installation for u (with track)...

if u want to buy normal track (old fashion one) can actually get from hardware shops nowadays just give them ur window panel / length, they will cut for u.. price.. quite cheap... u can also find those tracks at Jusco too...

about the type of track... it depend on which kind of curtain design u choose... for my point of view better get modern design track and modern design curtain - the curtain dont need metal to hang, curtain has hole which directly put go through the track.. it is easier for u to take the curtain out and wash and reinstall back after wash... smile.gif

Hi, Joey,

ok. Thanks for the info.

Ya, heard about those track could buy from hardware shop.
if buy there, the problem is still need DIY to install it onto the wall.
This is the part that I'm worried. Without a proper tool (and skill as well), hardly install them neatly. smile.gif

even the curtain track from hardware shop is cheap, but the quality is not that good also.
i believe if u order from fella, they will provide the track installtion as well. and their track will be better than those hardware shop.

For 2 door/window panel, the curtain track only has 2 holes that you need to screw it onto the wall.

You need a drill to make a hole in the wall and then, put a wall plug into the hole.

So, it sounds easy. You can learn to DIY.

sounds easy.
but... in real, might not be.

if dunno how to handle the drill properly, end up the holes might be loose or a lot of chips....

Thus, best if got pro to do the job. IF the charge is not sky price lah


Added on April 1, 2010, 1:49 pmand for the curtain size of 180cm X 240 cm, can be quite heavy, rite?

so, like someone mentioned earlier, that's the measurement of window dimension only. In order to get the waving patent, end up the clothes might have up to 300cm X 240 cm. Shall be very heavy liao, rite?

If you wanna DIY install, first make sure you have a good drill.
a. Must have hammer function
b. Must have variable speed
c. Make sure you have the correct concrete drill bit

1. mark your holes on the wall.
2. tap the marks with a nail to create a small hole. this is so the drill point does not run and you get accurate holes in the wall
3. choose the correct size wall plugs. they should be tight when you hammer them into the wall.
4. don't overtighten the screws when you install the curtain rail.
5. use a spirit level. this is important to ensure your curtain rail is straight and will save you lots of headache.

Added on April 2, 2010, 9:58 pmnormally the market price to supply & install curtain track is around RM5/ft to RM6/ft. If u r lucky, maybe can get cheaper than this price.

u can use either a bendable track or normal curtain track.
bendable track or curve track is much more expensive than normal curtain track because it can bend to fit bay window or u shape window

It's not that hard... but quite time consuming. Done it before. If normal brick wall it's ok, if it's a beam it takes ages to drill through it.

oh, tats nice. wud it cost alot more to have wooden rod vs normal track? I do love the wooden rod feel as oppose to jus norm curtain track. but any qualms on using wooden rod? my mom experience is that the rod went lopsided after a while (coz curtain too heavy i suppose?)

if u check at ikea or jusco, the rod might cost u RM15/ft.
i do like wooden rod especially white colour

Wooden rod is nice, but after some time it is hard to pull the curtain because of the dust at the top. So either u instead of pulling the curtain to the side, u can hang the curtain attch to the side hook. or pull the curtain with patience biggrin.gif

branded? maybe is the excuse to markup the price higher whistling.gif

I need some advise on some curtain here. I got a L-shape 6 panel window (5 panels only can be opened), with 1 single panel at the corner. So its shape is like a ------| ).

6 panel side is 340cm, 1 panel is 45cm.

Is my following requirement reasonable (or more like, possible??

a. Rod-type curtain. The rod has to be in 1 piece, so the corner of the rod would need to be bent.
b. Double layer curtain. 1 layer net-type, 1 layer actual curtain.
c. If possible, the curtains can ALL be pushed to one side of the window (whether its end of the 6-panel, or the single panel).

Thanks.

for bay window i still think the bendable railing are nicer (clean cut) and more practical (in the sense that it is easier to pull). but of coz it is just personal preference.

anyone has been to nilai? heard that it is cheaper and have lots choice. is it true? worth a visit?

kath..material and cost varies I suppose.. I went to a curtain shop yesterday...a cheap material (imported too) cost slightly more than a K for our main sliding door 12ft x 8"..a better imported material would cost us 3K.. so is hard to tell unless we are comparing the same material..

Oh material doesn't matter much to me, as long I can get the shape that I want. Most likely I'll prefer metal rods as I plan to get the normal rods from Ikea. Any contacts who can do this in Penang?

indeed... the design, material & finishing are all differs from one another. on the design wise, a more expensive sheers, it give a much better elogant look to the living hall.. On the material wise, I had bad experience on the cheapo material b4, it shrunk terribly after washing. And I believe even China made material would have different classes by its own?

It definately will, but roller blinds - they have cheap ones as well. Can get those and get it replaced every year or 2 years depending on how dirty it gets.

yes, it will. So if u prefer to use roller blinds u can choose those pvc balckout material. so that u can mop with wet cloth.

or like what bro shazzac said, use those cheaper blinds like venetian blinds. once dirty replace a new 1 biggrin.gif

for those who frequent Puchong area, my recommendation goes to BNS curtain (just a floor up 'Ah Xian Dim Sum').. Don't expect any spectacular showroom there, but you get a very personalized service from the brother and sister who runs the business..price vs material is good compares to a few other curtain showrooms in that area.
