Our Beautiful Bedroom Curtains

We have three modern curtain styles: our simple loop tops, pretty eyelets and our blackout pencil pleat curtains. Our loop top and eyelet curtains can be hung in an instant, are unlined and unbelievably easy to care for, while our pencil pleat blackout curtains keep the sunshine out any time of day. Our top quality curtains are made from the same high quality natural yarns as our bed linen, all finished with love and care in Portugal. If you don't know where to start when it comes to choosing your curtains, read our handy guide to measuring and hanging curtains. We hope you love them as much as we do.

Curtains for Every Window

When choosing the right curtains for your home, there are many considerations and questions you may want to ask. Below, we have shared answers to some of our frequently asked curtain questions.

The choice of curtain style and colour depends on the overall aesthetic and function of the room. Consider the existing decor, desired level of privacy, and amount of natural light you want to let in. Sheer or light-coloured curtains can create an airy and open feel, while darker or lined curtains can add drama and cosiness. 

Regarding curtain styles, we offer pencil pleats and loop tops, which add a different touch to your home’s interior. 

  • Pencil pleat curtains provide a classic and tailored look with neat and uniform pleats. The pleats create an elegant drape and allow easy adjustment of the curtain's fullness. 
  • Loop top curtains, on the other hand, offer a more relaxed and contemporary style. The simple channel at the top of each curtain panel makes them easy to hang in a jiffy with no fiddly hooks required.

Both styles will provide warmth and texture to your space, whether you prefer the timeless sophistication of pencil pleat curtains or the casual charm of loop tops.

When choosing your curtains, measuring the width and length of your windows accurately is important. 

For width, curtains should typically be 1.5 to 2 times the window's width for a full and luxurious look. Then, you'll need to choose a length that gives you the desired look. 

Most of our curtains are long, but do you want them to hang just above the floor or pool on the floor a little (this is particularly effective with a sheer linen curtain)? Discover an abundance of curtain advice, handy hanging tips and instructions about measuring up for your new curtains here. 

All the curtains at the Secret Linen Store are easy to care for. Most can be washed in your machine at home, in the same way, that you'd wash your bed linen, although the cleaning of the blackout curtains is best left to the professionals to make sure that the lining isn't compromised.

Light-coloured curtains are perfect for rooms that get a lot of direct sunlight as they're less prone to fading from the sun and will also help keep a room feeling light and airy. Light curtains will also help bounce the sun's rays away to keep your room cool in the summer. 

Dark curtains can be a great choice for a bedroom, especially with a blackout lining, to keep your bedroom cosy and conducive to a good night's sleep. Ultimately, whether to go light or dark is a personal preference, and you might want to switch your curtains out halfway through the year for the best of both worlds.

Curtains are a key element of any home as they provide privacy, block out sunlight and help you achieve a restful night's sleep while adding a pop of colour and texture to your interior.
