The most popular curtains have a pencil pleat heading usually with a 7.5 cm wide heading tape with three rows of woven pockets that allows for adjustment in height when hung. The heading tape has three draw cords running the length of the tape. The cords are pulled up to create the pencil pleat effect and should be knotted at both ends before gathering the tape. A more softly gathered look will be achieved if the cords are pulled less. Ideally, the cords should never be cut, as it is necessary to untie them and flatten out the gathers for cleaning. Pinch pleated or French pleated curtains have a slightly more sophisticated look with evening spaced triple pleats across the width of the heading. Because of the pleat and gap arrangement the curtains will fold back neatly and hang better than standard pencil pleat curtains, with gathers and neat pleats that are uniform. Also, because pinch pleated curtains fold back so neatly and "tighter" than pencil pleated curtains they are ideally suited to windows where the fabric needs to be as far as possible from the glass to allow more natural light in. Therefore pinch pleat curtains work well for bay windows, patio or French windows allowing more light in and not obstructing the view.
Jardinieres- Enabling some privacy, while still allowing light to enter the room, is the effect provided by these types of curtains. These have a distinct shape to them that creates a more elegant appearance than other types of thin curtains. There is a gentle arch in the middle, making the sides hand down a bit longer than the rest of the curtain, but this window covering only takes up part of the window. Usually, four different widths are available for this type of curtain, enabling them to fit most types of windows. Cafe Curtains- There isn’t a whole lot of privacy had with these curtains, but these aren’t generally chosen for that purpose anyway. This type of curtain is used more to add a bit of flair to a plain window. It dresses it up just enough, while not hindering the view of the outside. These curtains fill the width of the window, but aren’t very long. Placing two of these side by side will make a fuller display and some people prefer to fill the window more by hanging one curtain above the other. Net/Voiles- Using these to diffuse the light entering a room is most common, but they can also be placed over existing curtains to add contrast.
