What Are the Different Types of Custom Curtains?

Having curtains custom-made is a big project and it’s important to explore all of the options available before making a decision about the type of custom curtains you want for your home. Southwest Blinds & Shutters—a professional window treatment company that has been in business since 2002—offers a wide selection of customizable options for curtains and drapes, and we’d be happy to help you determine which style is the best fit for your needs and preferences.

Curtain Styles

When having custom curtains made, your style options are virtually endless. However, some of the most popular types of curtains that you may want to consider include:

  • Pinch pleat – Thick bunches of fabric are bundled and stitched together at the header of pinch pleat curtains to create a decorative look.
  • Box pleat – Box pleat curtains feature wide rectangular pleats for a sharp, modern look.
  • Eyelet – Eyelet curtains are strung across a rod by the metal rings at their header.
  • Goblet – Goblet curtains feature open pleats that resemble a goblet or wine glass.
  • Tailored pleat – Tailored pleats are similar to pinch pleats, but the pleats begin at the very top of the curtain.
  • Cased heading – Ideal for stationary draperies, cased heading curtains feature a casing, open at either end, that a rod can be strung through.

The type of curtains that will look best in your home depends on many different factors, including the size of your windows, the room they’re being hung in, your home’s interior design, and your personal style preferences. When you partner with us to have custom curtains made, one of our designers will explain each style that we offer in-depth, show you samples, and help you make a decision.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters provided a remarkable product for a great value! We are extremely pleased with the job done. James is a true professional who stands behind his company on all levels. We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
