I have some big windows cover and a small budget. Anyone know where I can get large pre-made curtains, over 2x2m, or low-cost made to measure ones in Sheffield?

Thanks.

Try Dunelm. They're pretty reasonable priced to start with, but often have a clearance or special offer section with bargains.

There's a place in the small shopping mall by Dobbies Garden world at Barlborough which does some really good end of line curtains (up to 227 cm if I remember rightly from when we were there last week).

I got all my curtains from Dunelm, they're fine and weren't too much money either. They do pre-made as well as made-to-measure so you'd probably find something

Another for Dunelm.

We got some lined ones for our front door - 8 foot drop, about 6 foot width each - something like 35 for the pair.

Website link http://www.dunelm-mill.com/webapp/wc...538_-1_1_10551

The Sheffield store is near Halfords - Queens Road end of town. There's also a store just over the motorway - about half a mile from junction 33.

I'm a little out-of-date with ready made sizes, but 229cm x 229cm (90" x 90") used to be a standard ready-made size. Make sure you budget for linings- on windows that size you will lose a lot of heat through them if you don't.

Thanks very much for all the replies.

I did take a look at the Dunelm website but they estimated 200 for the 2x2m window, which seemed expensive. I might have picked a costly fabric in the quote though.

I didn't know Dunelm have a shop off Queen's Road so I'll pop down there and take a look in store; see if there's any bargains to be had.

Thanks all.

I bought 2 pairs 60cm wide from Century mills and stitched them together my windows are 12 foot wide.They worked out cheaper than making my own.

The following website is good for curtains- they supply both made to measure and readymade, and can alter any readymade to fit any window - they've just supplied curtains for a tv show that did up a house in my street and my wife is looking for some new ones from them atm

If you can't find any that meet your needs in a ready made curtain then you'll be far better off making your own- once you start getting into the made to measure services offered then they really do get very expensive.

My living room curtains, which have a 108" drop, have very little choice indeed in ready made, so I'm making my own and even buying a really nice dress voile and separate sheeting to use as a lining is costing less than 100 all in with lovely beaded tie backs and threads. Unfortunately the curtains are so big that I have to make them at someone else's house though, as my house doesn't have any floor space big enough to lay the fabric out for cutting.
