Blinds can be dust traps, especially horizontal ones. As more people are suffering from asthma and dust allergies, curtains are a healthy choice, requiring little care to keep them clean and presentable. The tracks and poles need little servicing and the curtains need only be vacuumed or dry cleaned on the odd occasion.
Living rooms are a great place to add some high-end curtains. Here you can splurge on custom curtains to ensure you get the proper lengths to enhance your room and give the allusion of a grander space. Some nice curtains to add to a living room are velvet curtains or silk curtains. Both styles showcase elegance and give a rich appearance. If you are trying to create a formal living room, be sure to add tassels and trims to your curtains. This will also be a nice place to layer curtains, by adding a set of sheer curtains behind your main drapery panels. If you prefer a more relaxed living area, or may have a high traffic area in this space you can add nice contemporary cotton curtains that can be washed.
First things are looking at how tight of weave it is and if it’s really stated to be blackout. If a curtain says it has 99% blackout then it normally means that the curtains have been put through at least 3 coats of liquefied rubber polymer. This helps not only to close up the gaps so no light comes in but helps reduce sound as there’s less of a chance for it to get in. However watch for reviews that state they saw light coming in as then it probably isn’t coated and you won’t get as much noise reduction as you want. The next things to look for are how thick or heavy the fabric is as the thicker it is the better those soundproof curtains will be. While it maybe obvious avoid anything related to silk in your curtains as these do not block out any sound despite what companies may say. The final thing to do is just test curtains yourself. Not all curtains will block out the noise you think they will so you may need to experiment with a few different set of curtains before you find that perfect set.
Once you have decided the curtain pattern, mark the point from where you will start cutting. Use a light marker to make it easier for adjustments. The type of window will determine how you design your curtains. For French doors or windows the curtain opens in the middle therefore, you need two pieces of fabric. While cutting, leave a space of one inch or two along the edges for the hems. For ordinary windows and doors, the fabric should be one piece only.
If your bathroom plans consist of finding a very unique shower curtain with a special design the first place you should start looking is at a new modern designed shower curtain. This will give you a very personal one-of-a-kind or maybe a limited-edition shower curtain. A large number manufacturers of well-known brand names will offer a wide variety of different bathroom accessories so that you will be able to match the shower curtain theme or even just to be able to add more to that existing bathroom decor. By just adding a few matching towels or lotion pump or different towel rack at a very reasonable price you can enhance the decor very simply. The basic use for a shower stall curtain is to stop water from damaging the rest of the bathroom; this doesn’t mean you have to live with an unattractive shower curtain. By choosing a beautiful new fabric shower curtain that is treated and has a curtain liner you will find that it won’t decay and will also retain the textiles rich colors, unlike cheaper vinyl curtain that you will replace more often. With the designer fabric shower curtain check and make sure it’s of good quality materials so that you will be able to repeatedly wash it and not lose any of the fabrics colors and not show any signs of wear and tear. All designer fabric shower curtains can be chosen by any size, pattern and various colors. Common sizes that are available are usually 72\" x 72\" but if you require more you can get extra long shower curtains or an extra wide curtain depending on your bathroom size needs.
