Always check the care label first before washing them. The last thing you want to do is ruin the drapes by not closely following the instructions. When you are washing curtains for the first time, be sure to check the suitability of the detergent being used. Test a small patch of the curtain with a mixture of water and the laundry detergent. The majority of washable curtains need to be cleaned with a gentle detergent and in cold water. Of course don’t forget to remove any metal fittings or hooks before you wash the drapes. You can line dry the curtains. A clothes dryer will work just as well, but make sure the settings are on low.
If you have just bought a house or you are thinking of re-decorating your home, consider the options presented to you by a number of different curtain types and their functions. With correct curtain choice, it is possible to change the look and feel of a room completely. Curtains are an important feature of your room’s style and feel. Curtains are no longer just used for blocking cold, keeping warmth inside, blocking out light and creating a private atmosphere. Now curtains are used in a decorative manner as well as practical functions. Depending on the window you need to dress, curtains can become a focal point of an entire room or frame a view from the window. Interior decorators use colour, style and new materials to help create an excellent looking window curtain.
Some curtains require some lining at the back to make them thick. In this case, cut the lining material of the same length as the curtain fabric. Pin the two fabrics with their plain sides facing each other. Sew the two materials together at the border with a sewing machine. Fold the edges at least half an inch inwards along three sides and then hem sew it using the sewing machine. Only one of the shorter sides should be left unstitched. However if you want to add drapery weights on the bottom side of the curtain you should leave it unstitched too.
