Hi, just bought first house and slowly starting to redecorate. I think we need curtains 280cm long to reach the floor. Just want a plain light fabric. (North facing room and I want to paint the walls or two walls dark green or dark teal so want the bay window lovely and light!) We compromised with the bedroom bay window and just got 2 pairs of Ikea 250cm curtains, don’t look amazing as they’re just short of the floor but they don’t look terrible and it was only £50 for 2 pairs of blackouts so fairly happy. But I don’t really want to compromise with the lounge so deff want floor length. Can anyone recommend curtains about 280cm or made to measure and could people give me an idea of price please? We have limited budget but just doing things slowly/when we can afford, so I’m happy to pay for quality if it’ll be worth it in the long run! Thanks so much for recommendations!!!

Worth going to Homesense if one near you and looking at their "window panels".

I managed to cover a huge floor to ceiliing window by buying two sets and getting a tailor to sew them together and take them up slightly. Homesense had a great choice and the solution proved very cheap.
