Where Can You Buy The Cheapest Designer Curtains?

Savvy prospective buyers will always shop around for the best price and when it comes to Curtains, as curtains can be one of the main features or draw to your rooms aesthetic – It is definitely worth doing a little homework to find out where you can locate the best designs at the best prices.

Luckily, we’ve sifted through a plethora of industry leaders to bring you the cheapest designer curtains and more importantly, where you can buy them.

But first, to accurately compare and contrast, we’ll need a benchmark for measurements and design, here are the exact specifications we opted for:
117CM (Width) X 137CM (Drop)

Curtains Width and Drop Box


Picking the standard option for lining and pencil pleat 3’ we also chose the Orla Kiely Multi Stem Tomato design for the curtain, as it’s an extremely popular fabric print, and rightly so with its vibrant, retro-chic.



And now for the competition, we exclusively chose websites who were on the first page of the search engines for “Orla Kiely Multi Stem Curtains.”

Heres our pick; John Lewis, Blinds Direct, WOW Curtains and Curtains & Blinds 4 Homes.


John Lewis

John Lewis Product Page For Orla Kiely Multi Stem Tomato

Having never been accused of having ‘Cheap’ products, you wouldnt expect John Lewis to be the most competitively priced supplier or high-quality, designer made to measure curtains. For our chosen style of Orla Kiely curtain, John Lewis, unsurprisingly came in at the most expensive of all our options.

John Lewis: £129.85





Blinds Direct

Blinds Direct has been a mainstay of the online curtain and blinds industry for a good while, having perused their website in the past when looking to freshen up the look of the living room, their listing on Google boasts of a 70% discount being available. Surely, Blinds direct are cheaper than John Lewis, but could be the cheapest of all the competitors?

Blinds Direct came it at over £40 more than John Lewis! What a shock, especially considering the enticing “70%” discount on their ad-listing.
I’m glad that last time I visited the website, it was only perusing that I did…not purchasing!

Blinds Direct: £170.83





Blinds And Curtains 4 Homes

A humble website with plenty of options for curtains and blinds.

Curtains And Blinds 4 Homes Product Page

Our cheapest option so far! Which is a surprise as you assume that the lesser-known websites are going to be more expensive as they perhaps can’t get it from the suppliers at as competitive a price as the big boys – But this obviously isn’t the case.

Curtains And Blinds 4 Homes: £90.58





WOW Curtains

A new competitor to the market is our final entry, a family-founded business that offers free curtain samples and an extremely high turnaround for made to measure curtains and excellent ratings on a plethora of review websites. Without further adieu:

WOW Curtains product page: Orla Kiely Multi Stem Tomato


Well, that certainly blows my theory about the ‘Lesser Known’ curtain suppliers not being as competitively priced as the industry leaders!

WOW Curtains have blown the competition out of the water when it comes to the price of the same made to measure curtains, by shopping at Blinds Direct – You’d nearly be spending £100 more than necessary! 


If you shopped with WOW Curtains for the same Orla Kiely Multi Stem Tomato curtains you would save:

£97.71 rather than shopping at Blinds Direct.

£56.73 rather than shopping at John Lewis.

£17.46 rather than shopping at Blinds & Curtains For Homes.


The results speak for themselves, it’s always worth shopping around for the best price, you can end up saving nearly £100’s for a few hours sifting.
