As we have discussed before, it is impossible to name all the variations of curtains available on the market today. Shopping for curtains is made easier for customers today with the use of the worldwide web. Most curtain retail suppliers have web sites where their customers can peruse curtain catalogues, see different hangings, view materials and designs and more. With popular curtain retailers, customers are able to order samples of materials and shop for curtains online. This new and easy way of shopping makes choosing curtains easier as you can be in your home when visiting curtain retailer’s web sites.
The first step to take when measuring for curtains is to start by measuring the width of the curtain pole or track this will then determine how long you would like your curtains to be. A curtain pole is a good indicator as to where the curtains will finish either at the seal length below the seal or touching right down to the floor we recommend as a rough guide that the curtains should finish 1.5 cm above the sale. If you would like your curtains to fall below the seal we recommend that they finished 15 cm below that if you want your curtains to flow from top to bottom from the rod to the floor we would then recommend a gap of 1.5 cm above the floor.
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.
Prolong the life of your drapes by regularly removing dust and dirt. Once a week you should vacuum the curtains using the upholstery attachment. Some curtains are light and delicate. In these cases vacuuming could damage them, so give them a good shake instead to dislodge dust particles.
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.
