I was nervous to buy curtains that were more expensive than what you get at Target or Amazon but I couldn't find sizes that worked for the big windows. Two things I would have done differently: 1. I should have listened to Meskens recommendation to achieve appropriate fullness, I did 1.5x instead of the recommended 2x and I wish I had done the 2x. and 2. I probably would have gotten blackout lining on all of my drapes because the Bowery still lets some light through in the daytime when they are closed. I thought because they were black, getting blackout was maybe overkill so I only did on the drapes going in my bedroom but if you want full blackout - pay the money for the lining. But, even though I would have done those things differently in hindsight, I'm still overall happy with what I ordered and will probably order from here again if I ever move into a different home. This is a high quality product.
We’ve used Mesken for all our bedrooms after buying our first house. We absolutely love the quality, the overall value, and customer experience that they provide! We have recommended them to all of our friends.
I took a chance without ordering swatches first, and I love how my ivory bowery curtains turned out. I got 2 x the width as suggested and I worried they would be too full, but they're not. I got the room darkening liner and it's just enough to block out most of the lights from all of the townhouse porch/garage lights right outside my large window, but doesn't keep me from waking up naturally in the morning. The quality feels really substantial. Chloe in customer service was awesome when she caught that I had initially ordered one large curtain instead of two - I would have been a wreck had it arrive as one large curtain! All around super positive experience, would order again.
Everything about this company is super.
Help when needed, product quality and service on all levels is truly great.
Would order again in a heartbeat.
I ordered curtains for a very large sliding glass door, with a blackout liner. I did a lot of research and once I realized my curtains would need to be a custom size, the price tag was looking really high! Mesken was by far the best deal, and the only trick is you need to do the measurements yourself, but their customer service was super helpful with this and their directions were really clear. The curtains feel like really good quality and look amazing. And the blackout liner is SO DARK. Truly blackout, so do keep that in mind! Highly highly recommend this company for any non-standard size curtains!
Most of us assume man-made fabrics are inferior to natural materials like cotton or linen. In fact, synthetic materials have advanced tremendously in recent years. In terms of look and feel, the synthetic fabrics we offer at Mesken are largely indistinguishable from natural ones.
Polyester and its variants have the advantage of being strong, durable, and resistant to mold and bacteria. There’s no need for dry cleaning and they’re less prone to wrinkling. Plus, they’re generally less expensive than cotton or linen.
Don’t get us wrong — we love our cotton and linen fabrics just as much. But our synthetic fabrics make great curtains that are not only stylish and practical but also more affordable.X
Ripplefold and pleated curtains are made with the following built in fullness:
Ripplefold and 2-Pinch Pleat : 2x
3-pinch pleat and Euro Pleat: 2.5x
For example if the area you want to cover is 50 inches, we first recommend you add 10% to ensure ample coverage (55”). Then use the appropriate fullness above to calculate the fabric needed. If you’ve chosen 2-pinch pleat, 55"x2= 110”. This means we would use 110” of fabric to make a curtain with a finished width of 55”X
