As mentioned above, electric curtain tracks can be fitted which allow you to control your curtains from the comfort of your armchair. Although it may seem like the height of laziness, there is a practical aspect to electric curtain tracks. When on holiday, people typically use automated light-switching devices but have to leave curtains or blinds half open. Electric curtains can be set to open and close at set times each day, giving the impression that someone is home. Alternatively a light sensor can be added to open and close the curtains in conjunction with the daylight hours.
Purchasing ready-made curtains can lead to compromise on quality and design. You are also provided with a limited range to choose from and therefore it is very hard to find curtains that suit your needs. You may find a curtain with your preferred fabric but the pattern or design is not satisfactory. You can overcome these hurdles by making your own curtains. Sewing your own curtains does not necessarily need professional knowledge. Below are some steps you can follow to make your own curtains-
The top side of the curtain can have hooks or a continuous loop depending on the curtain rod you have. To make the loop, fold the top part of the curtain backwards and then sew it. Make sure the rod fits in well into the loop before stitching it. For a curtain with hooks, there are two options to choose from. You can have hooks made from the curtain cloth using buttons or you can opt for ready-made steel or plastic hooks that are readily available in the market.
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.
Earlier curtains were only used to cover the windows and to stop the wind or bright sunny rays from entering the rooms. Nowadays, the curtains have become an important part of your interior decor and they are especially designed or picked from the upholstery to match the interior theme. If you want some wonderful curtains to decorate your windows, then you should choose from the latest grommet drapes that look simply adorable on all types of windows. Over the years, the popularity of these curtains has grown immensely because they are versatile and can convert a dull looking room into a modern and bright one.
