Shop Versatile and Easy to Hang Tab Top Curtains at Spotlight

Spotlight offers a number of tab top curtains in a range of colours, sizes and materials to suit your style and home. As well as the tab top curtains in this range, also check out the sheer tab top curtains and kids tab top curtains here at Spotlight. Sometimes tab top curtains are sold as individual panels, which also makes them ideal for narrow windows or doors, where one curtain will be wide enough. Because they are not gathered in pleats, tab top curtains don't have to be quite as wide as some other curtains such as pencil pleats or pinch pleat curtains, which can make them more economical too. For wider windows, just use two or more panels to cover the width you need.

Tab Top Curtains FAQs

What are tab top curtains?

Although their name is often misunderstood, tab top curtains are one of the most commonly used types of curtain in the Australian home. Economical, versatile and always in style, they are well worth considering if you are looking for new curtains. The "tabs" on tab top curtains are the exposed loops (tabs) of fabric that you can see on the curtains. These tabs are looped around a curtain pole or rod. The tabs can be made of the same material as the curtains, or even from contrasting colours, or embellished with decorative buttons, to match the curtain pole or the rest of your interior.

What are concealed tab top curtains?

Concealed tab top curtains are a slight variation on tab top curtains and are also called hidden curtains. Concealed tab top curtains have these tabs sewn onto the back of the curtain header. This means that once the curtain rod is in place, the tabs are not visible from the front creating a clean look.

How to hang tab top curtains?

Simply thread the rod through each of the tab loops in a straight line. Stand at a distance, as well as at various angles, and see how your new curtains look. You may want to adjust the pleats depending on the drop and the tightness of the gathering. Visit the full guide on How to Hang Curtains for detailed information.

How do I care for my tab top curtains?

We always recommend that you check the product labels and laundry instructions, but many tab top curtains can be hand or machine-washed if required, and if they are hung while still damp they often don't need ironing. If you do need to iron your curtains, always make sure to check the label and iron with a cool iron on the reverse side of the curtain.
