Experience Within the Industry Absolutely Shows

“I found Nicola amazing, she came into my 2 homes and immediately felt like a friend. She assisted me in colour and texture choices and I honestly couldn’t have chosen by myself as her experience within the industry absolutely shows. Everything now within the homes has been tied together with Nicolas assistance. My blinds are perfect and I would not hesitate to recommend her and Cardell to anyone.”

Linen Curtain FAQs

How do I wash my linen curtains?

Linen curtains are easy to care for, as they can be cleaned in your washing machine or by hand. If it’s convenient you can also dry-clean your linen curtains. Here are some tips on how to wash your linen curtains:

  • Check the care label on your curtains for specific instructions on washing temperature, cycle, and detergent.
  • If your curtains have stains, treat them with a mild soap or laundry detergent before washing. Test the colour-fastness of the fabric on an inconspicuous area first.
  • Use the delicate or hand-wash cycle on your washing machine, or wash them by hand in a vessel filled with cold or warm water. Do not use hot water or bleach, as they can damage the fabric.
  • Dry the curtains until they are no longer dripping wet. You can use a low setting on your dryer, or hang them outside in the shade. Do not over-dry or fold them, as this can cause wrinkles.
  • Iron the curtains using vertical strokes on a low heat setting while they are still slightly damp. This will help to smooth out any wrinkles and creases.

What are the different styles of linen curtains available at Cardell?

At Cardell, we have a variety of styles of linen curtains to suit your taste and budget. Some of the styles we offer are:

  • Sheer linen curtains: These are lightweight and transparent, allowing natural light to filter through while creating a soft and airy look. Linen or linen-look sheer curtains are ideal for adding privacy and elegance to your windows, without blocking the view.
  • Linen blockout curtains: Also known as linen privacy curtains, they are lined with a special fabric that blocks out light and noise, creating a dark and quiet environment for sleeping or relaxing. Blockout linen curtains are perfect for bedrooms, nurseries, media rooms, or any room where you need to control the light and sound levels.
  • Ruffled linen curtains: These have ruffles along the edges or the bottom, adding texture and flair to your windows. They are feminine and fun, and can create a shabby chic or cottage style vibe.
  • Crushed linen curtains: These have a crinkled and textured appearance, creating a casual and relaxed look. They are low-maintenance and do not require ironing, as the wrinkles are part of their charm. They are also lightweight and airy, letting in natural light while adding privacy.
  • Linen-look curtains or linen-blend curtains: This type of linen curtain is made from other fabrics like polyester or poly-linen blends that mimic the appearance and feel of linen, but at a lower cost and with less care. A linen-look curtain is durable, wrinkle-resistant, and easy to wash. If you want your curtains linen-look, you will have access to a variety of colours and designs that can match any décor style.
  • Raw linen curtains: Raw linen curtains are made from unprocessed (fewer pesticides) and undyed linen that retains its natural colour and texture. Also known as natural linen-look curtains, they are rustic and organic, adding warmth and character to your windows. They are also eco-friendly and sustainable, as they use less water and chemicals than processed linen.
  • Linen lace curtains: These have delicate and intricate lace patterns on the edges or the body of the curtains, creating a romantic and vintage look. They are feminine and elegant, and can add charm and sophistication to your windows. They are also lightweight and sheer, letting in natural light while adding privacy.

What are linen curtains made of?

Pure linen curtains are made of fabric with a linen weave texture, which is a looser weave than cotton, and gives linen curtains their unique character and high breathability. Linen curtains can be made from flax linen, which is a natural and eco-friendly material derived from a flax plant, or from polyester or poly-linen blends, which are more cost-effective and less prone to creasing.

What choice of colours do I have?

With modern dyeing processes, customers in today’s market have a choice of a wide range of linen curtain colours, including:

  • White
  • Charcoal
  • Cream
  • Beige
  • Dark green
  • Gold
  • Navy
  • Olive
  • Peach
  • Red
