Ready made curtains - only small sizes?


I have read may threads here regarding curtains but could not find this issue:

We have started our search for curtains, for the living room "vorhange/voile" and dark ones for the bed rooms. We went to Ikea and Micasa to have a look at the readymade ones. But (almost) all of them seem to have a maximum width of about 125-150 cm, which with 2 curtains will not cover my window/wall.

What is the solution for this? Do you just hang several ready made next to eachother? I would guess that does not look nice with the extra openings.

Of course custom made will fit, but that seems to be very expensive.

Any tips?

We got ours made by a lady on Hegibachplatz in a shop called Home Outlet which sells a variety of materials and makes the curtains up for you. You can opt for cheap material and a cheap design if you want. At least you will have nicely made curtains that will last for years.
