Once you have determined what length of curtains you would like you need to then measure the length with a tape measure curtains are usually manufactured or made in pairs but the measurements you see on ready made curtains on the packaging is individual curtain measurements rather than both of them together generally the total width of both curtains should be 2 to 2 times the width of the curtain pole or the track. This is only a rough guide and if you have any other questions please get in touch with us here at curtains online.
Lace or sheer curtains will get damaged if thrown directly into a washing machine. You have two good options for cleaning more delicate materials. You can simply hand wash them to avoid fraying the fabric. Alternatively, still use a washing machine but first seal the curtain in a mesh bag to protect it from damage.
Some of today’s more modern windows and patio doors open inwards leaving little space to fix. With curtain tracks that can be as small as 5mm and some that can even be recess fixed into a ceiling, this will leave plenty of room for a window or door to open inwards.
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.
The sunnier side of your house should have thick curtains to block the sunlight from heating up your room too much and on the other side you can always use fabrics like net or lace. The design that you choose completely depends on which room you are doing the curtains in. If it is the kid’s room then you should choose something like cartoons or alphabets or numbers or animals etc. If it’s the master bedroom then the curtains should add to the grace of the room, you can have big motifs or designs and the guest room curtains should be subtle and in warm colors. The design completely depends on your liking but you should also remember that the functionality of the curtain should be maintained.
