FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

Curtain hold backs are decorative accessories used to hold curtains in place when they are open, allowing natural light to enter the room. They add a touch of elegance and style to your window dressing. Curtain hold backs are essential for those who want their curtains to look their best, and to keep them from getting tangled or damaged when they are not in use.

At Direct Fabrics, we offer a wide range of curtain hold backs in various materials and finishes, including metal, wood, and acrylic, to suit all types of curtains and interiors.

The right curtain hold backs will complement your curtains and enhance the overall look of your room. When choosing the perfect hold backs, consider the color, style, and material of your curtains. For instance, if your curtains are made of heavy fabric, metal hold backs would be ideal, whereas if you have light curtains, wooden or acrylic hold backs would be a better choice. Additionally, take into account the size of your curtains and the size of the hold backs. A good rule of thumb is to choose hold backs that are about one-third the size of the curtain.

At Direct Fabrics, we have a range of curtain hold backs to suit all types of curtains, styles, and preferences, and our experts can assist you in choosing the perfect hold backs for your curtains.
