We spend much time for our interiors like painting the wall and ceiling anew or buy wall papers. We also procure new furnishings for the living room or change the lighting for a new look of the home. However, we always miss to give our windows the perfect treatment it deserves. Instead of buying new curtains, most of the time, we use the old curtains we have without even realizing that those are the same curtains making our home so dull. We should be aware that curtains enhance the beauty of the home and achieving a tranquil atmosphere. Therefore, there is a need to buy new curtains that will certainly last longer than your previous curtains. There are particular considerations in choosing the perfect curtain for your home. Aside from choosing the right curtain that complements every element of the home, the window size, the wall colour, and the scenery you will see from the window shall also be given attention. This article will help you plump for the right curtains for your home.
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.
