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.
Privacy is an issue when we need to select curtains for our room, but when we have a beautiful view from the window and privacy is not a big issue, a good option is "hanging stationary panels", which definitely add colour and softness to the room. For people looking for cheap options, rod pocket panels are good. You can add a "topper" according to the overall design style of your living room. These are some off the rack inexpensive options for your living room area, but if you really want a unique curtain style for your room, choose custom tailored curtains. You have to be creative; you can add colour and design of your choice to give your room the look you feel it deserves and according to your mood. These custom tailored curtains can be cheap or expensive; depends on the fabric and design you would choose.
You might need to consult a professional curtain maker, a guidebook, or a website that can tell you how much fabric would you need for a particular type of curtains. You might need to change the existing track, or pole, if you are going for a different style this time. Roman style curtains, pencil pleated curtains, and tab top, and eye let curtains are the various kinds of curtains differentiated based on their stitching. All of these styles require appropriate curtain accessories, which you cannot ignore. Moreover, different patterns, designs, and fabrics are needed for each type of curtain. You have to visualise the overall effect of the curtains in the specific room where you plan to hang them. If anything appears to mismatch, or go wrong in any way, you always have the option to replace, or make amendments on time. This is another advantage of having made to measure curtains made.
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.
