Acoustic blankets can help out greatly though in areas where it’s hard to hear yourself think over the car noise. Unfortunately no set of curtains will make a room completely soundproof even if you help out the curtains with acoustic blankets. If you are looking for a complete soundproof room there are alternatives like double pane windows, special insulation in the walls, or even different types of drywall. However if you’re looking just to help lower noise and get a better sleep while keeping the costs low then curtains are the way to go.
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.
Nearly all the manufacturers use fabrics that possess a long-life flame retardant capacity. The curtain cloth would be suspended from a curtain track, curtain carriers, or other types of supporting structures. However, curtain tracking is the most common support for most of the cubicle curtains. In the case of hospital curtains, the cubicle curtain fabric would consist of different types of woven fabrics that would be stitched together. The top portion of the cubicle curtain would be prepared from a mesh fabric to allow light and air flow into the cubicle. The lower portion would be of opaque cloth to furnish complete privacy.
We will first start with a kid’s bedroom. One of best curtains to use in a kid’s room are blackout curtains. Blackout curtains will block out all the light in the windows. Sunlight proves to be a big distraction in the morning and during nap times for kids. There are a few options in blackout curtains that are not only functional but stylish as well. You can find cotton blackout curtains in some nice contemporary styles that are suitable for both boys and girls. There are fancier yet affordable options such as faux silk blackout curtains. These curtains are more suitable for young girls and teens. You can also find some blackout roman shade curtains that will fit inside of the window itself for a neat appearance.
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.
