Barnes Interiors Curtains Expertise

There is no replicating the design possibilities of curtains when it comes to window furnishings - the array of fabrics is infinite, extending your styling opportunities and allowing you to truly imagine and create a specifically unique ambience in your home.

Barnes  Interiors have been creating custom made curtains for nearly 80 years and pride ourselves on our ability to bring cohesive, classical and on-trend design through all the rooms in your home.  Our expertise and detailed quality service are unparalleled in Wollongong and the Illawarra, and alongside our huge array of beautiful fabrics, we will help you actualise the look and feel you are trying to achieve for your home and lifestyle.


The Choice of Interior Designers and Architects

We have worked alongside some of the best interior designers and architects in the area and beyond. We particularly excel at producing high end finishes that we have been manufacturing in our local workroom for more than 30 years.

There are a composite of factors to consider when choosing the right window furnishings for particular rooms in your home - aesthetics, environmental factors and achieving certain objectives such as privacy. Let us bring our designer experience and expertise into your own home and help you create a finished look that works around your lifestyle parameters.

Curtains & Drapes  

Drapes are traditionally more grand, use heavier fabrics and are hung longer than curtains with even some pooling possible.  Drapes can have a big impact in formal rooms and suit the use of pelmets, finials, tiebacks and other dressing details.  Usually lined, drapes are great for blocking light and so make them suitable for the TV room or bedrooms.  They also offer insulating capabilities, keeping your room more temperate and saving on energy costs.

Curtains are usually lighter than drapes and don’t necessarily have to be lined.  Whether you want to make your curtains a feature, such as vibrant prints in the kids room, or to simply add elegance to a room, Barnes Interiors are here to consult on the many options to suit your style and objectives.

To achieve different effects, consider making drapes and curtains with different pleats - knife, pencil, pinched, double, triple and many more.



There has been an explosion in the popularity of sheer curtains in recent times. They offer an ethereal and tantalisingly light feel to your window furnishings and with the many beautiful fabric options now available, you can really create your own look.

There are so many textures, colours and prints now being produced by the best fabric houses in Australia.  Add dimension, depth, contrast and design to your rooms with the vast array of dreamy lightweight sheer fabrics available.  Again, change up the effect by implementing different pleating options with sheer fabrics.

For night time privacy and revolutionary insulating capabilities, combine your sheers with Powerview Designer Luxaflex Duette Architella Shades.  These shades do all the hard work when it comes to energy efficiency but the sheers still allow a soft flowing aesthetic for your interiors.  Functionality and beauty!
