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.
Off the rack curtains though are inexpensive, but they are available in limited colours and patterns. These curtains are poorly made, and offer a temporary solution to decor your living room. On the other hand, custom made curtains are expensive because of the good chosen fabric, and proper lining style. These curtains take time to be completed, but once they are ready and hanged, they make your room attractive and unique. The lining feature enhances the life of these curtains; you can enjoy seeing them for a long time. Adding lining to your curtains is something very important. If you are living in a cold area, thermal lining should be added. Although it will increase the cost of curtains, but it will stop the energy escaping your home, and it will also increase the life of your curtains by protecting them from the sun. If you are living in a sunny area, sun rays can be harmful for your curtains. It is wise to add cotton lining to your curtains to protect them from sun. It will reduce the amount of sunlight entering the room, thus save the items like carpet and furniture from fading. For warm countries with lot of sunshine throughout the year, opaque lining keeps out any unwanted light.
Eyelet heading curtains have an even number of metal rimmed eyelets regularly spaced across the width of the curtains. The spaces between the edges of the first/last eyelet and the edge of the curtain are generally half of that of subsequent eyelets. There should be a gap or around 4cm between the inner edge at the top of the eyelet and the top edge of the curtain. Eyelets are available in a choice of colours and sizes. The curtain is threaded onto a suitable pole, concertina fashion, with the edges of the curtain facing the wall. This ensures that the lining is not visible when the curtains are hanging. The even eyelet spacing gives equal folds of fabric in front and behind the pole.
