The Different Window Types
When it comes to choosing your curtains, your window type will definitely affect your choice.

Different windows benefit from different curtains, so before you have yours made, take a look at our guide so you know what to look for.
Awning windows have hinges that run along the top edge and often open outwards. Operated from the bottom of the window, they allow you to ventilate the room, even in light rain.
Awning windows are often combined with other window styles and are placed high up in a room to allow for ventilation, to be opened separately.

That way, you can open an awning for a gentle breeze at night, while keeping the rest of your room dark and your curtains closed.
Bay and Bow Windows
Projecting out of your room and connecting with the outside, bay and bow windows are a beautiful addition and add character to any home. Large and wide, bays allow for ample light flow into a bedroom, and the addition of an elegant window seat beneath them, if it tickles your fancy.

Curtain rails are designed to blend into the background or be hidden behind a curtain so that they’re unseen. They’ll also hold your curtains as close to the wall as possible.
With this choice, you’ll need to bear in mind the heavy weight of the curtain fabric, including any lining you may add to it. The rail will need to be strong enough to hold the weight of the curtains, and reinforcement may be necessary.
