Toni Sweet. Curtains. September 24th , 2017.
To sew your own curtains you only need some basic knowledge in needlework. You also need to have the measurements of your windows when you go to purchase the curtain fabric. Sometimes you can also use some of your old clothes to add colorful patchwork to your curtains. All you need is a sketch of how the final look should be.
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.
Even today, there are a number of women who prefer heavy traditional curtains over contemporary shades. It makes them feel proud to decorate their homes with heavy and expensive curtains. There are shade makers that specialize in making traditional curtains. Not only was the blind material and design of utter importance, even the blinds rods that these blinds were to be hung on got special attention. Blinds rods were made from wood, iron and bronze. The ends of the shade rods were also specially made to match the traditional curtain that was to be hung from it.
For large windows situated in the living room, choose pleated or layered curtains made from fabrics like silk, satin or velvet. You can also have beaded curtains. Having valances or pelmet to cover the curtain rods will give the curtains a better finish. For windows that face the street, double-sided curtains are better as they give a presentable look. To make the curtains look more fancy use tie backs which also help in gathering up the curtain when not in use. These curtains also help to cover some flaws in the room. They can also be used to neutralize extremely light or dark shades on the walls.
Although some vertical blinds can be bent to the shape of a bay window, a vertical blind will take away the lovely effect and leave the room looking more like an office. A curtain track or curtain pole can be made to measure and bent to suit a bay window and the curtains will once again add elegance and style. Curtain tracks are also more flexible and can be made to fit a wider range of bay windows.
