To add to the luxurious look trims can be added to French pleat curtains such as contrasting buttons, tassels or braid. Goblet pleated curtains as the name suggests have tubular foam or metal fasteners which create a goblet effect at the same regular intervals as the French pleated curtains. These fastenings or foam tubes should be kept in place when the curtain is hanging, but removed for cleaning. Like French pleated curtains goblet pleated curtains create a very sophisticated heading and hang to the curtains and trims either buttons, tassels or braid can be added for that finishing touch. Tab headed curtains are hung from a pole by evenly spaced fabric tabs. The first and last tabs on each curtain are positioned at the edges of the curtain. The width and length of the tabs can vary according to the width of the curtains and the size of the pole from which they will hang. The tabs are made from the same fabric as the curtain and the pole will need to extend at least 30cms either side of window, due to width of tabs. The pole will also need to be fitted at least 15cms above the window, due to the length of tabs.
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.
