THIS PAGE ANSWERS YOUR  MOST COMMON QUESTIONS




DO I NEED A SPECIAL TRACK TO FIT MY CURTAINS ?
 No special track is needed, you can use any type of plastic or metal curtain track or any type of wooden or metal curtain  pole.



WHAT DO I FIT MY SWAGS AND TAILS TO ?
The simple way to achieve a beautiful look is by fitting a simple wooden shelf above your curtain track or pole. the shelf is a piece of soft-wood purchased from a shop or timber outlet and is approx 1" (2.5cm) thick x  5" (12.5cm) deep and is the same length as your curtain track/pole. 
your curtain track can either be fitted to the underside of the wooden shelf or in the space between the top of your window and the shelf.
the wooden shelf is fixed in place using 2 or 3  "L" shaped brackets and can be fitted as far above your curtain track or pole as you wish,
the wooden shelf would normally extend past the window frame approx 4" (10cm) each side but you can decide.
We also make swags and tails to slot onto curtain poles, these are usually sold on seperate adverts, you simply slot your pole thru the fabric tunnel at the top of your swags and tails, 


HOW DOES EACH  SWAG AND TAIL FIT TO MY WOODEN SHELF (PELMET BOARD)?
The top of each swag and tail has a strip of fabric sewn across it holding the folds firmly in place, 
      simply place this strip in position on top of the wooden shelf where it is unseen and fix it in place with the free fixings supplied.

1 fixing at each end of the swag is usually enough, but you may use more if you wish.  The Tails Fix in the same way,  


WILL THE TOPBOARD BE SEEN ONCE THE SWAGS AND TAILS ARE FITTED TO IT ?
No. And use a softwood, Do NOT purchase expensive hardwood. 



CAN SWAGS AND TAILS BE FITTED INSIDE CURVED AND ANGLED BAY WINDOWS ?
Yes they fit exactly the same as when you fit to a straight window, remember to leave approx 3-4" in  front of your curtain track as you  need to leave enough space for curtains to draw behind the swags and tails without the curtains touching them. 



CAN I SEND OR EMAIL  YOU A  DRAWING OR PHOTO TO SHOW YOU MY WINDOW DETAILS ?
You may send us a drawing showing the window details if you wish but please remember to include the sizes in inches or centimetres,



WHAT IS MY CURTAIN DROP ?
The curtain drop is the measurement from your curtain track or pole to the  point you wish the lower edge of the  curtains to finish.



THE ADVERT SAYS " SHOW " CURTAINS, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ?
Show curtains DO-NOT fully close, They may fully close if you gather the curtains less but please ask us if your unsure,


THE ADVERT SAYS " WORKING " CURTAINS, WHAT DOES THIS MEAN ?
Working curtains will fully close across your total width  


WHAT MEASUREMENTS DO I NEED TO GIVE YOU ?
We need the width of your wooden shelf (from left to right) which is usually the same width as your curtain track or pole, we also need the finished drop (length) of your curtains.



DO MY CURTAINS ARRIVE ALREADY GATHERED UP ?
To avoid excessive creasing during transit we do-not gather the curtains up for you, this is done by holding the top of each curtain and equally pulling the cords at the top until the desired width is achieved.



WILL MY CURTAINS BE LINED ?
This is included in the details of your order will be shown in the advert for the item. Most of the curtains are fully lined and they will have a standard 3" multi -pocket gathered heading 



DO THE SWAGS AND TAILS  ARRIVE READY TO HANG ?
Yes they do. No folding or pleating needs to be done, The swags and tails arrive 100% completed. simply take each swag out of the box and fit in place,



ARE THE SWAGS LINED ?
Yes, all swags are fully lined unless stated otherwise in the item advert



IF I PAY BY CHEQUE WHEN IS MY ORDER DESPATCHED ?
goods are despatched when your work is completed & funds must clear into our business bank account before we post them. 



DOES THE WOODEN SHELF COME WITH THE SWAGS AND TAILS OR CAN YOU SUPPLY IT?
We do not supply or send wooden shelves thru the post as the cost is far too expensive and the wood is very cheap to buy from any timber shop.



I WANT TO ORDER CUSTOM MADE TIE-BACKS ,CAN I ORDER THEM SEPERATELY ?
Yes. you can order seperately at any time.



I HAVE NEVER FITTED SWAGS AND TAILS,  WILL I BE ABLE TO FIT THEM EASILY ? 
yes you will. our swags and tails require no specialist tools or skills to fit them,

yes, and we will design "free of charge" for any room you wish.
