Eyelet Curtains or Ring Top Curtains as they are sometimes known are fast becoming the number one choice of curtain heading, this is largely due to the simplicity with which they can be hung but also because of the huge range of decorative poles that they can be used with.
Traditionally Eyelets have only been available in either Brass or Silver but in recent years this has all changed, you can now select your eyelets from a variety of sizes colours and even shapes. Some of the most popular colours at the moment are Burnished Brass, Gun Metal, Black, Brushed Steele and Pewter, as for the size and shape of the eyelets, a standard 40mm eyelet is still the favourite although you can also get the larger 66mm if required. It is also possible to get square Eyelets too.
I am often asked if Tie Backs should be used with eyelet curtains, to which I generally say NO, eyelets look great when hanging straight and also the pleats are generally much deeper than conventional headings, making it difficult to use a tie back or embrace without creasing the fabric.
If you are put off by the noise of the metal eyelets on a metal pole then you may be surprised to hear that you can have silicone inserts added to the rings to give a smooth silent glide action.
Eyelet Curtains can be used in Bedrooms, Dining Rooms or a Lounge, or indeed anywhere that needs an elegant but modern curtain.
