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.
One place that requires curtains is a patio door. These doors are usually made of sliding glass and require a wide curtain. They can be a problem in terms of leaking air around the seals of the doors. Some curtains provide insulating properties that some blinds, shades and shutters do not so they make a perfect replacement window treatment. Some of the curtains that are available as a patio door treatment are designer curtains. The prices of these can be somewhat more costly than other forms of curtains. Other styles of curtains are not appropriate for a patio door such as country style curtains.
