The top 10 retailers to purchase curtains


Curtains stop drafts on cold wintry evenings and block light on early summer mornings. They can also help to transform the look and feel of a room. But where is the best place to buy new curtains? We’ve pulled together a shopping guide to help with this essential home purchase.

Unsurprisingly, John Lewis excels at curtains in a big way. John Lewis offers customers a wide range of options including an array of fabrics, as well as ready-made and made-to-measure curtains for show-stopping large windows.



Very has a huge variety of options, from Jacquard pencil pleats with a wide top border, to plain styles. They also have a made-to-measure service.



Habitat has a wide range of curtain colours and textures, so you can choose to make a bold statement or simply blend in. If you’re not sure what you need, then drop into store for some style advice.
