Our experienced curtain consultants are able to give you the best advice and guidance on what is the best look for your room.
There are 2 main styles of curtain fabric – Block out curtains and sheer curtains. Each curtain style provides a different feel and ambiance to your room.
Block-out curtain fabric is designed to block out the light and heat from the room. This choice of curtain fabric is perfect if you wish to maintain maximum darkness in the room. Block-out curtains are able to be installed on various curtain tracks, allowing you to find the perfect style for your room.
We have a beautiful range of plain or patterned fabrics suitable for blockout curtains. All are sourced from Australia’s leading design houses.
Sheer curtains are one of the most popular curtain products at Classic Blinds & Shutters. Choosing a sheer fabric is the perfect way to create a stylish and softer look in your room.
Both elegant and functional, sheer curtain fabrics soften most rooms providing a sense of privacy. You can complement new or existing block out curtains with beautiful sheer fabric curtains from Classic Blinds.
The curtain style is an important aspect to consider as it defines the look and character of your curtains.
The choice of header also determines how the curtain fabric falls and stacks when the curtains are pulled aside.
Modern curtain styles like the Wave Fold offer a softer fall in the fabric. A more traditional curtain header such as a pinch pleat allows for a more structured and decorative curtain presentation.
Pencil Pleat Curtains
Pencil pleat curtains are a more traditional style of curtain. The heading of pencil pleat curtains is non-structured, offering a less formal look. Versatile enough to fit any room, pencil pleat curtains are the most cost-effective style of curtain. Highly adjustable, pencil pleat curtains can bring extra depth and texture to any room.
S-Wave Fold Curtains
Wave fold or S-Fold curtains are one of our most popular and contemporary styles. A simple yet elegant heading, this style is suitable for a large range of fabrics. It can be used for hand-drawn, cord drawn or motorized operation
To create a consistent and continues ‘S’ wave effect, spaced carriers and stiffened tape are sewn onto the curtain fabric. The folds of this heading are always perfectly positioned and spaced. The result is a soft and sophisticated look, with a low profile track that glides seamlessly.
Inverted Pleat Curtains
With a clean modern look, inverted pleat curtains are designed to form even, box-shaped pleats. With a luxurious quality, inverted pleat curtains are a popular curtain style, suitable for any modern room. This curtain style does not stack back as comprehensively as other styles.
Knife Pleat Curtains
The knife pleat style is a neat and simple curtain heading perfect for both lined and sheer fabrics. A continues flat pleat forms an even gather across the curtain track. Knife pleat curtains are the perfect style for sheer curtains that sit behind blackout curtains, as the pleats lay flat. This curtain style is also a stylish choice when you are looking for a streamlined curtain to suit modern interiors.
Pinch Pleat Curtains
Pinch pleat curtains offer a classic and more formal look. These structured, sewn-in pleats provide a tailored look suitable for any interior and can be done as both double and triple pinch.

Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1: Are curtains old-fashioned?
Curtains are seeing a revival of late – and the newer, more modern S-wave headings and beautiful sheer fabrics available mean they are becoming a must-have element in whole house interior design.
Question 2: What is the lead time on curtains?
The lead time on curtains is approximately 8 weeks from time of deposit.
Question 3: Where should I place my track? How high and how far past the window?
A lot of factors go into determining the placement of tracks – including the amount of stack back there will be, the opening direction of doors or windows behind, the symmetry of the opening and the overall look you are trying to achieve. We will discuss and give advice to you on site in regards to this. Whilst not always possible, taking your curtain wall to wall and ceiling to floor is ideal, as it will open your space up and achieve a luxe, hotel-like vibe.
Question 4: Where do we get our curtains from?
Our curtains are Australian Made by BQ Design in Melbourne, and our tracks come from Forest Drapery in Batemans Bay – we do not import our curtains or tracks from China.
Question 5: What are my fabric options?
Classic can source ANY fabric for you, and have a great range available for viewing in the Showroom from fantastic fabric houses such as Warwick, Wortley, Charles Parsons and Mokum.
Question 6: Will I see the curtain track?
The use of modern, minimal profile tracks means that, whilst visible directly above the curtain heading, they have a streamlined and unobtrusive look to them. When we are installing white track against white architrave/wall or ceiling, they become virtually invisible.
