Living room or dining room curtains need not be as heavy duty as a bedroom curtains as they need to let light in so the material doesn’t have to be as thick as there is found in bedrooms. Modern houses today the windows are quite large so they can look very decorative bunched up tied up either side of the window people like curtains in living rooms and dining room to fit in how they have decorated the rooms.
Always check the care label first before washing them. The last thing you want to do is ruin the drapes by not closely following the instructions. When you are washing curtains for the first time, be sure to check the suitability of the detergent being used. Test a small patch of the curtain with a mixture of water and the laundry detergent. The majority of washable curtains need to be cleaned with a gentle detergent and in cold water. Of course don’t forget to remove any metal fittings or hooks before you wash the drapes. You can line dry the curtains. A clothes dryer will work just as well, but make sure the settings are on low.
There are fairly thin living room curtains that help reduce the noise a little but on the opposite end are theater and acoustic curtains that block out a lot more however these are usually a lot more costly. Several curtains will come with various layers like foam or vinyl that can help silence that annoying noise. The curtains with multiple layers even if thin are the ones that have the best results. Recently double curtain setups which reduce noise even more are becoming a popular trend to reduce the noise even further.
The buttonhooks require some extra fabric to make the straps. You will need a number of straps cut into equal sizes depending on the length of the curtain. The buttons should then be sewed on one end of each strap. Finally make buttonholes at the top edge of the curtain with regard to the size of the straps. One of the advantages of this method is that by adjusting the position of the buttonholes you can adjust the height of the curtain from the ground.
Although white or cream blinds will fit in with most room styles and colours, they do nothing to enhance it. Curtains can blend in with your room, or can be chosen to enhance or contrast with it. Redecorating? No problem, just choose new curtains to match. Curtains can also have trimmings and contrast edges to pick out other colours within the room. Buttons can be added to pleats, cord can be added to edges or pleats as can a contrast trimming. Curtains offer a much wider scope for design.
