Elevate Your Space with Luxurious S Fold Curtains

Discover the transformative power of scale with curtains. Beyond mere functionality, their elongating lines and floor-to-ceiling designs accentuate room height and elongate walls and windows. Loved by designers and favored for both new builds and renovations, S Fold Curtains epitomise this effect, making them the most popular choice for discerning homeowners seeking both style and practicality.

The S folds within your curtain create long vertical lines which elongate your walls, helping make your space appear taller, larger, and grand. Designers love its structured yet soft look, where the folds in your fabric form an S shape along a special track.

Experience the perfect blend of thermal insulation and luxurious texture

Pairing sheers with blockout blinds stands as one of our top-selling product combinations.

Unlock a myriad of advantages by installing a blockout roller blind behind your sheers: comprehensive light management, day and night privacy, and exceptional thermal insulation.

For wall-mounted roller blinds, our extension brackets, accessible on our product ordering page, make it achievable. These brackets extend the curtain track into the room, providing ample space for your roller blind to rest on the wall behind.

Best of all, all of our motorisation products whether it be a blind or a curtain, are cross compatible with the remote or smart hub programming functions.

All-Season Thermal Comfort

Ensure year-round comfort in your home, regardless of the season. Our range of blockout curtains, double curtains, and lined curtains offer exceptional thermal insulation to keep your space cozy.

If you favor sheer curtains, complement them with a roller blind. For unparalleled light control and thermal insulation, consider pairing blockout curtains with plantation shutters for ultimate comfort.

Motorised Curtain FAQ

Everyone’s home is different, and depending on how many motorised curtains or blinds you have, the number of remote controls you’ll need will change. For rooms like a bedroom, that might only feature one motorised curtain, we recommend a two channel remote for each room. For other area’s where you will likely have multiple motorised curtains or blinds, we recommend a 16 Channel remote.

You should always buy a remote with your curtains, you’ll need one for the initial set up and if you order a smart home hub – and they’re handy to have if you are hosting guests.

None if you’re opting to use a remote control, however if you’re planning to use a smart hub, just one. Unless of course your home is gigantic, they can be placed in repeater mode so the signal will reach every corner. With a signal operating distance of 50 metres, for most people, you’ll only need one. There is no limit to the devices being controlled by one hub.

Our motorised curtains are for indoor use only.

We’re very thorough with our installation instructions, making it easy for you. You can check out our in depth text and video installation instructions here.

Below you’ll see how our smart hub communicates with your motorised curtains. If you’re using a remote, your motor will be communicated with via RF signals.

In terms of where the motor sits, they are hidden discretely behind the fabric of the curtain on one end of the track.

Yes, we’ve got easy to follow instructions and they usually only take about 10-30 minutes per order. All you’ll need is a pen, tape measure, and a drill with a 3mm Phillips head. View our full installation instructions here.

It’ll only take a few minutes.

First, check out our simple instructions here:  How to Measure

After that, grab a tape measure, pen and pad and you’re ready to go.

If you have any questions, we’re also here to help.

Yes, curtains can help keep heat inside a room, especially if they are made of a thick, insulating material like thermal or blockout curtains. When drawn closed, these curtains create a barrier between the interior of the room and the window, reducing heat loss through the glass. This can be particularly effective during colder months or in climates where temperatures fluctuate significantly.

However, the effectiveness of curtains in retaining heat depends on various factors such as the material of the curtains, their thickness, how well they fit the window, and the overall insulation of the room. Additionally, during warmer months or in hotter climates, curtains can also help to block out sunlight and prevent heat from entering the room, thus keeping the interior cooler.

Because your curtains are custom made they do have a lead time associated with them before we can send them out to you.

That will vary but generally is anywhere between 2-3 weeks before we can dispatch them to you. This will not include transit time after dispatch by the freight carriers.

Yes. All of our Curtains are Australian made and are manufactured locally in Melbourne. With the exception of our Plantation Shutters. Our motorisation/electronic products are designed and owned by Australians, but are manufactured offshore.

Due to the way curtains are manufactured, they only take approximately 30 minutes to assemble. Because of this small amount of time to make the curtain, the cost difference between locally produced and overseas produced curtains is often on par or cheaper to manufacture when taking international shipping into account. This is why most window furnishings are still made in Australia.

By buying Australian made curtains you’re supporting local jobs and keeping the money in circulation within Australia to boost our local economy instead of off shore.

There are other benefits as well. For example, if anything happens with your curtains such as made to the wrong measurements – problems can be easily rectified in a short turnaround time of a few business days as opposed to waiting a long time for overseas made curtains.

Lastly, and probably most importantly, overseas made curtains will take 8+ weeks to arrive vs locally made blinds that have a shorter turnaround time.

Our Curtains are made from scratch, to your measurements. We certainly do not cut down ready made Curtains or sell ready made Curtains as in our opinion they are an inferior solution.

The term stands for “Do it yourself”. ‘DIY’.

It has essentially been associated with consumers primarily in the domain of home improvement and maintenance activities. It’s where people undertake home improvement and various other small craft and construction projects as both a creative-recreational and cost-saving activity.

In terms of our curtains, DIY will mean you measure and install them yourself instead of having a company do it for you.

By ‘doing it yourself’, you will save on the costs associated with having someone come into your home to measure for you, and installer costs. You’ll save quite a bit, and it’s not hard at all. We’re here to help you every step of the way too.

Our curtains are easy to measure and install. You don’t have to be a professional to do it.

If you are opting for a motorised curtain, a track from My Direct Blinds will be mandatory.

The S fold curtains stand out as the top choice among customers. This versatile style enhances the aesthetic of any home and is offered in both sheer and blockout options.

There’s no definitive answer. Linen look curtains are currently trendy.

To ensure you’re fully satisfied with your selections, we provide complimentary samples of up to 10 fabrics. Order your free samples today to make an informed decision.

Indeed! Curtains serve as an excellent method to introduce texture into a bedroom. For those sensitive to light, blockout curtains prove to be ideal as they effectively minimise light infiltration. Moreover, you can layer sheer curtains atop a blockout roller blind to ensure daytime privacy while imparting an attractive interior decor element.

Our curtains and blinds are backed by a 5-year warranty.
