    Hi,
    I want to buy curtains online as I'm disabled so going out isn't easy. I want plain standard size but getting them in chocolate brown seems difficult. The only one I've found is made to measure and for the 2 pairs I need is like £750 which I can't afford.
    I want to be able to order a fabric sample or return ready made ones for free as I won't be sure until I see and feel the fabric.
    I have tried the following shops but got no joy
    Dunelm
    Tony textiles
    Yorkshire linen
    Next
    John lewis
    Debenhams
    B&Q
    I would appreciate any ideas of other shops or if there is a different way to do it (I don't want hillary, if I could afford that I wouldn't be on here)

    Thank you in advance!

    Out of curiosity I've just googled on 'chocolate brown ready made curtains' and quite a lot of names (other than those you've mentioned above) popped up, so might be worth trying that?

    Without knowing the size of curtains ('standard' could mean one of several sizes) or your budget it's hard to be more specific.

    Have you tried amazon?

    I have been very pleased with curtains I bought there.

    Also with Montgomery curtains online sales.

    What size?
    https://www.terrysfabrics.co.uk/collections/all-curtain-types/index2.html?filters%5B5%5D%5B0%5D=BROWN

    £750 is expensive...
    Are you looking at top quality one?

    I bought plain pair of chocolate brown lined ready made curtains off ebay for under £20 recently for patio doors. They were slight seconds but you would never know.

    thank you all. i have 2 different sized windows i think the standard sizes i need are 228 by 182 and 160x182 i cant remember the standard sizes exactly but that is the industry standard sizes.
    I didnt want to but on ebay as you have to pay to return them if they are not right and im to particular to just accept near enough items.

    thank you
