Floor-length curtains are also perfect for bay or picture windows. Massive windows can be given strokes of elegance by decorating it with long length curtains. Extra long curtains that puddle on the floor will enhance the appearance of a romantic room. The bottom portion of the extra long curtains can be allowed to stack on the floor and can be positioned in nice folds. This is a great way of attaching a refined look to a gracefully furnished room.
Popular themes include rubber ducks, fish, sea shells, sail boats, balloons, clouds, or any simple patterned design. The background can be clear, so you can keep an eye on your children when they shower, or it can be an opaque shade. The advantage of vinyl and polyester curtains is that they keep the water inside the tub instead of it splashing onto the ground. Fabric shower curtains are permanent additions to the functions and décor of a bath room. Some are designed to match towels and bathmats. Some textiles have been treated with stain resistors and waterproof coatings to combat moisture, as they are more likely to absorb splashes. Hemp shower curtains provide the best of both worlds: cotton and vinyl, the heavy fabric is made of plant fiber like linen or cotton. However hemp is naturally antibacterial and anti fungal so it resists mildew and soap stains.
Where both vertical and horizontal blinds just cover the window and add very little to the look and feel of the room, curtains and their fittings add a certain style. Curtain poles come in a wide variety of styles, from simple metal curtain poles to wood effect ones. Finials (the decorative ends of the curtain poles) also come in all shapes and sizes, so you are sure to find a style that suits your room.
Some curtains require some lining at the back to make them thick. In this case, cut the lining material of the same length as the curtain fabric. Pin the two fabrics with their plain sides facing each other. Sew the two materials together at the border with a sewing machine. Fold the edges at least half an inch inwards along three sides and then hem sew it using the sewing machine. Only one of the shorter sides should be left unstitched. However if you want to add drapery weights on the bottom side of the curtain you should leave it unstitched too.
Acoustic blankets can help out greatly though in areas where it’s hard to hear yourself think over the car noise. Unfortunately no set of curtains will make a room completely soundproof even if you help out the curtains with acoustic blankets. If you are looking for a complete soundproof room there are alternatives like double pane windows, special insulation in the walls, or even different types of drywall. However if you’re looking just to help lower noise and get a better sleep while keeping the costs low then curtains are the way to go.
