Curtain Pleats & Finishes

Buyer's Guide Fabrics
Curtain fullness 100% vs 50%

Curtains can be sewn flat or with fullness. Use pleats to increase opacity in sheer fabrics, add to the depth of visual field and absorb more light or for enhanced sound absorption.

Curtains can be pleated according to the fabric, application, and dimensions of the curtain.

  • For 100% fullness, account for twice the amount of fabric used for a flat curtain.
  • For 50% fullness, account for 1.5 the amount of fabric used.

When in doubt, just ask. We are always happy to help.
