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.
The department stores and shops offer a wide range of curtains that come in different cut, design, and the choice of fabric. Curtains that are larger cost much and those made from exquisite quality fabric costs even more. Most people opt for curtains that are layered with more than 2 fabrics. What they do not know is that such type of curtains is more expensive. Household that are on a budget shall think and plan thoroughly when buying new set of curtains. Instead of going to department stores and shops nearby, it will be more practical if you procure your new curtains through online shops.
