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.
Contemporary curtains are some of the most common available. There are many varieties and options for consumers to choose from that will fit any budget as well as any decor. If you are unable to find what you are looking for locally, do a general search online to find what you want. Many online retailers offer discounts on not only the curtains themselves but on shipping as well. You may even consider having yours custom made to your exact measurements and choices. Many of this style of curtains are jacquard so they are thicker than linen or polyester curtains. This also makes them much heavier. Choosing the perfect curtains is often the best finishing touch when decorating a room. Sometimes just changing the style of curtains is all that is needed. When deciding on what type of curtains to add, be sure to consider the following; Jardini’res, Cafe Curtains, Net Curtains, and Voile Swags. Each of these adds a different feel to the room and can provide many desired effects.
