A natural linen curtain suits every interior. As a noble and natural material, linen remains a timeless choice in interior decoration and holds a prominent place among household linens, alongside your table linens and bed linens.

The linen curtain is an elegant and durable option to dress a window and complete the decor of a room. Warm and lightweight, linen alone can enhance a space. There are several types of linen curtains ranging from sheer linen, very airy with a weight of around 100 g per m², to heavier linen with a tighter weave weighing around 200 g per m², each having its unique characteristics and advantages. Sheer linen curtains offer an unmatched touch of elegance to your windows, combining aesthetics and functionality. Its light and natural texture allows natural light to gently filter through, creating a warm atmosphere in the room. Sheer linen curtains are ideal for dressing a bay window overlooking a garden or landscape as they won't obstruct the scenic view you love to contemplate. Meanwhile, for rooms like bedrooms, a thicker curtain, perhaps with a blackout lining, would be preferred to ensure better sleep and good thermal and sound insulation. As you can see, a linen curtain can adapt to any type of room in your home and complement your decor with elegance and practicality.

A natural linen curtain is a popular choice for those seeking a more ecological and straightforward product. Made from undyed fabric, this curtain can be used without lining, often serving a more decorative purpose than light protection. You can also choose to opt for lined curtains (lined with white cotton) to ensure better privacy for your space, or finally with a blackout lining if you're looking for total thermal and sound insulation, especially for a bedroom. In any case, a linen curtain creates a natural and relaxing style for your room. Lined linen curtains are often slightly heavier than unlined curtains, making them more suitable for rooms where some privacy is preferred and desirable.

Lined or unlined, Linenshed offers you a choice among a wide variety of styles and colors, giving you the opportunity to coordinate the curtains with other elements of your decoration or household linens.

How to care for linen curtains?

It is essential to follow the manufacturer's care instructions to preserve the luxurious appearance of a linen curtain, as well as any other linen product, for as long as possible.

Caring for linen curtains plays a crucial role in their longevity. Learning the appropriate tips and methods for washing and caring for your linen curtains will help preserve their natural texture and luster while adding a touch of freshness to your space.

Linen curtains tend to shrink slightly upon the first wash due to the natural fibers of linen. To avoid this, wash them in cold water with a gentle detergent, use a delicate washing cycle, do not overload the machine, and avoid the dryer. Air drying is preferable. If necessary, iron them at a low temperature with steam to relax them. The shrinkage is usually minimal and should not affect the appearance or utility of linen curtains.

Blackout linen curtains at Linenshed

You can also opt for linen curtains lined with blackout fabric if you are looking for good thermal insulation, as well as protection against light and noise. In an era where we are all called upon to make efforts to reduce our energy footprint on the planet, dressing our windows with blackout curtains makes perfect sense. Finished curtains with a blackout lining can even provide superior insulation compared to velvet curtains. However, it should be noted that blackout linen curtains are generally heavier and thicker than other types of linen curtains, so plan for a sturdy mounting system.

Linen curtains for every style

Choose linen curtains for the lightweight, resistant character of the fabric, and its easy maintenance. Washed linen allows you to achieve an elegant and casual look from the bedroom to the living room and even to the bathroom with our linen shower curtains, with or without waterproof lining. Our shower curtains, like all our household linens, are available in our 16 colours, allowing you to easily match them to your bath mat or bath towels. This fabric is also ideal for summer since linen helps keep the room cool, and in winter linen curtains help keep the warmth inside your living space. Our linen curtains are also available in many types of fixings; you can choose the ones that best suit you. With metal rings, tie-tops, hidden or exposed tabs to attach them to a rod, or with a gathering tape (commonly called "pencil pleat") that offers the option of attaching rings for fixing to a rail or rod and creating more or less pronounced folds.

A few tips before confirming the dimensions of your made-to-measure curtains.

Taking precise measurements is crucial when ordering curtains to ensure a perfect fit and optimal aesthetics.

Here is a complete guide to correctly measuring your windows.

First, get a metal tape measure (preferably 5 meters) for precise measurements. Start by measuring the total width of the window, from the outer edge of the frame to the other. Note this measurement as the total width in cm (centimeters are the unit to be entered in our menu).

Then, measure the height from the top of the rod

or hooks of the rail that is installed, to the floor. If you want floor-length curtains, this will determine the total height. If you prefer curtains stopping at the level of your window sill or at the height of a radiator, measure to that point.

For pleated curtains, when finished with a gathering tape, multiply the total width by a factor, usually between 1.5 and 3, depending on the type of pleats desired. This will add fullness and additional elegance.

If your curtains need to be drawn regularly, make sure they do not cover switches or power outlets. Also, measure the available space on each side of the window to determine the maximum width of the brackets.

If you opt for rods, measure the total width of the window, then add a few centimetres on each side to allow the curtains to open completely and not block the light.

Take precise measurements for each individual window, as dimensions may vary from one window to another. Also, consider the position of the sun and the desired level of privacy when choosing lined or unlined linen curtains.

In conclusion, precision is essential for ordering made-to-measure curtains. Take the time to carefully measure the width, height, and any relevant details to ensure curtains that fit perfectly to your windows, adding both style and functionality to your space.
