For bedrooms with large windows, the curtains can be used to add coziness to the room. If the room is small, they can help to make it look bigger or spacious. You can have floor length curtains made of lace or satin, which is ideal for both children and adult bedrooms. You can also use sheer curtains in the bedroom, which make it look good and also make it appear bigger and spacious. The curtains can either be roll ups or pull apart and you can also have valances or cornices.
Curtain tracks and curtain poles can be hand operated so that many different curtains can operate on one window. This allows curtains of different widths and drops to stack at different locations on the window. In addition they can also be operated as a blind with a cord to avoid handling the curtains or electrically for the extra security and a touch of luxury.
With the internet it is possible to view the many types of curtains, choose the appropriate style and colour to suit your home. To name a few types of curtains you are likely to find: curtain valance, cascade curtains, shirred curtains, café curtains and more. When you consider curtain types, also investigate the type of hanging style you require, for example you may want to choose a rod which has designs to fit, you may be interested in pelmets or using a tie-back curtain system.
Unfortunately not all curtains can be cleaned with a washing machine. If you will be washing the curtains by hand, you could use the bath to have ample space. Make use of a gentle detergent which doesn’t contain bleaching agents and mix in cool water. Be certain the detergent has fully dissolved before putting the curtains in the water. The best hand washing method is to gently squeeze the curtains, and not apply excess pressure. Consult the care label for specific instructions about cleaning your drapes. After washing, the curtains will have some creases. A bit of ironing will get rid of the unwanted wrinkles. To make ironing easier, don’t fully dry the curtains. Leave them slightly damp so the creases don’t set. Once the curtains are dried and ironed, they are ready for hanging.
Cotton was the main fabric used in traditional blinds, as it could be easily dyed in different colours, and designs could be woven in the fabric or printed on them. Lace blinds, with different designs woven in them, were also an extensive and essential part of traditional shades. In fact, lace curtains are quite popular even today.
