Choosing the perfect made-to-measure curtains for your room

We all love the natural light that seeps into our homes during the summer months. It warms the air, brightens our moods and transforms our homes. However, when you have natural light streaming into your bedroom early on a weekend morning, you may not be as happy about it! Curtains are a necessity in your home whether you want some privacy or to catch up on some sleep, and made-to-measure curtains are a perfect way of combatting your privacy levels whilst adding a touch of luxury to your home.
