Window treatments provide privacy and add a layer of softness, color, and texture to the look of your home. When buying curtains, you can choose ready-made curtains or go for custom curtains. Let’s look at both options.

Custom Curtains vs. Ready-Made: Which Option is Best for Your Home?

Ready-Made Curtains

Ready-made curtains come in standard sizes and various styles, colors, and patterns. You can find ready-made curtains in discount stores, department stores, and hardware stores. They may not give you the exact look that custom curtains deliver.

Ready-made curtains are more affordable than custom curtains. Still, you have to be careful that you don’t get too focused on the lowest price. These curtains may be made from low-quality fabrics, which don’t last as long or perform as well as those of high quality. You also have to work with what is in stock. If you need more than a few pairs of curtains, you might have to go to several places to find them. The colors and patterns need to appeal to most people, so these curtains are usually rather generic.

It is also challenging to find curtains in the exact size you need. If you want to avoid gaps that let in too much light or curtains that drag on the floor, ready-made curtains are not the best choice.

Custom Curtains

Custom curtains may cost more, but they are made to fit your windows precisely, and you can choose the fabric, color, and pattern you want. If your home has windows that do not fit the standard curtain sizes, you’ll have to get custom curtains made.

We love custom curtains because you are creating something for your home that is indeed based on what you want. Ready-made curtains force you to choose an option based on other factors, such as available inventory, colors, and length. They may be close to what you wanted but not something you want to look at for years.

At Interiors by Moyanne, we can design your custom curtains as part of a complete room design or a standalone project. Your curtains should state who you are and what you want your home to look like. Contact us to get your design project started.
