‘Railroaded’ fabric is a term used for a fabric that has the stripe or pattern design running across the width of the fabric (from one edge of the width to the opposite edge). Normally, striped or patterned fabrics would have the stripe or design running along the length of the fabric, meaning that there would be no maximum drop for your curtains. However, because in the case of railroaded fabrics the total length of the stripe or pattern only runs across the width, it means that there is a maximum drop that your curtains can be without there being a horizontal join in them. For example, if the railroaded fabric is 280cm wide, the maximum drop for your curtains will be 280cm, minus any fabric required for the top and bottom hems. The maximum drop for railroaded fabrics will depend on the width of the fabric and the style of heading that you choose (different heading styles use different amounts of fabric for the top and bottom hems).
If you would like to order a railroaded fabric, but your required drop is too long, there are a few options you can choose:
• Join another piece of the same fabric to the bottom of your curtains. This means you’ll have a horizontal join in your curtains. We generally don’t recommend this option as it doesn’t always look very neat. • Join another piece of a different fabric to the bottom of your curtains. This means you’ll have a horizontal join in your curtains. We would definitely recommend this option. Borders on the bottom of curtains often work very well, and people often request this even when they don’t have to. Our showroom curtains have borders, and they look great!
• Use the fabric the standard way round. This means you won’t have any joins in your curtains, but in the case of stripes, they’ll be horizontal rather than vertical. In the case of patterns, the pattern will be turned around 90 degrees (sometimes this looks OK, sometimes it doesn’t). This option really depends on the individual fabric and your personal preferences
If you’d like to go for any of these options, have an idea of your own or just need help working out how much of a railroaded fabric to order, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help.

We advise using a metal tape measure for accuracy. Measurements should be in cm to the nearest 1/2 cm. Please double-check your measurements.
1. Inside Recess
Make sure that the recess is at least 6cm deep.Otherwise the blind will protrude beyond the recess.
1. You need to measure width A-B. We need this measurement in full; do not reduce it.There will be a gap of about 1.5cm between the fabric and the recess wall which will allow some light through, even with a blackout lining.2. Measure drop C-D3. Note which side you would like the chain – right or left
2. Outside Recess
Decide on the amount of fabric to overlap the top and sides of the window recess. We recommend at least 5cm for the top and 6.5cm for the sides to minimise light leakage when using a blackout lining.
1. Measure the width A-B2. Measure the drop C-D3. Note which side you would like the chain – right or left
3. Fixed to Window Architrave (Frame)
First, decide whether you want your roller blind to hang on the outside or inside of the window architrave.
1. Measure the width A-B2. Measure the drop C-D
3. Decide which side you would like the chain – right or left
Plain lining Our standard plain lining is laminated to the back of your fabric to make it flat and stiff so it works well on a roller system. This clever process means you can use almost any curtain or blind material on a simple, modern roller blind system.
Blackout lining Similar to the plain lining above but a blackout lining will block any light from passing through it. This makes it a perfect choice for a bedroom because it stops the morning sun from disrupting your sleep. It has the added advantage of having good thermal properties so it will keep your room warm and toasty too.
Supersize Samples If you need to see more of your fabric before you buy, you can get a supersize sample - a 40x40cm piece of your chosen fabric).
Real fabric not plastic We use real fabric when making our roller blinds, so they won’t have a plastic look unlike most roller blinds. The fabric of your choice is laminated onto a lining layer which stiffens it and keeps it flat so it rolls up and down well on the roller mechanism.
Standard Roll and Reverse RollOn a ‘standard’ roll, the fabric rolls off the back of the roll nearer the window pane, with the lining showing on the blind barrel. We recommend you choose ‘standard’ roll if you're concerned about light filtering into the room through the sides of the blinds.On a ‘reverse’ roll, the fabric rolls off the front of the roll with the fabric showing on the blind barrel. The front of the blind is approximately 6cm from the window. This blind is not suitable if you are concerned about light filtering into the room through the sides of the blind.
