Curtains. Sunday , October 08th , 2017 - 17:21:14 PM
Till the industrial revolution took place, only the rich could afford to buy curtains. These curtains were usually plain and coloured, and were made from silk or linen. In some homes, winter curtains were made from wool. The purpose of curtains has not changed over the ages; curtains are placed inside over windows to keep prying eyes from looking in to a home and to keep the interior of the house warm in winters. Curtains also blocked out exterior light.
Although some vertical blinds can be bent to the shape of a bay window, a vertical blind will take away the lovely effect and leave the room looking more like an office. A curtain track or curtain pole can be made to measure and bent to suit a bay window and the curtains will once again add elegance and style. Curtain tracks are also more flexible and can be made to fit a wider range of bay windows.
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.
