Pinch pleat curtains are the most popular as they are perfect for bedroom as unlike Wave and pencil pleat, they are able to block out most of the light and therefore ideal for those needing a good night’s sleep!

The organised pleats certainly allows the curtain to stack very neatly, in contrast to pencil pleat which fall more randomly.

There are three styles available: single, double or triple pinch pleat. The most popular is the double-pinch which is the modern take on the triple pinch which is a more ‘formal’ option.
