Frequently asked questions


The Resene Curtain Collection

How do I know what size curtain I need?

Follow the How to Measure Guide.


Are the curtains lined?

Yes, all curtains have a polyester/cotton fabric lining. Colour Ivory. You can upgrade to a blockout lining for extra thermal protection.

If you require alternative backing please refer to a Curtain specialist.


What is a Pencil Pleat curtain?

Pencil Pleat refers to the style of gathering at the top of the curtain. A tape is used to create folds that are gathered closely together to resemble a row of pencils laid side by side. They are created by pulling cords on the tape and knotting the cords off at each end to secure the pleats in place.

The Pencil Pleat curtain is a very popular heading style as it allows you to adjust the gathering to the fullness you prefer, and gives flexibility when selecting the size for your window.

How much should my track extend out from each side of the window?

In most cases, your track should extend 20cm on each side of the window. This allows room to draw the curtain back from the window.


Can I wash these drapes?

See our care instructions for information on how to care for your Resene curtains. The fabric types are listed on each fabric’s information page.


Do you have a brochure I can take away?

Yes, you will find the brochure in any Resene ColorShop.


Will the curtain be to my exact measurements?

Yes, to the nearest centimetre (+/-).This means the curtains supplied may be 1cm longer or shorter than required and this is the industry standard allowance.


Can I cancel my order if I change my mind?

No, these curtains are made to order, and are non-refundable. Once your order has been placed, it cannot be cancelled. It is very important to check your measurements are correct before placing an order, for this reason.


Can I add to/change my order?

Once production has started, you cannot make changes to your order. If you wish to order more drapes you will need to place another order.


Can my order be charged to my Resene account?

Yes but the charge cannot be credited if you change your requirements. All payments and charges must be final before the order is placed.


If the design/colour I select is not available, will my order be placed on backorder?

If you wish to place your curtains on backorder this service is available, and you will be given an approximate availability date.


How do you ensure the curtains are consistent in colour?

Each pair of curtains is made from the same batch of fabric.


Where do you deliver my order to?

What is your returns policy?

Curtains are non-returnable, unless the product has a manufacturing defect.
