The carriers normally contain a nylon axle, two free-rolling nylon wheels, a nylon swivel stern that is designed to be tangle-free and steel hooks that are chrome-plated. Nylon materials are used as curtain carriers since they would not easily break or rust and are highly durable. However, the curtain carrier glide could also be made with a nylon swivel, one-piece nylon spool, and steel hook of chrome plating. Another type of curtain carrier is the breakaway carrier, comprised of nylon wheels, hook, and body. The tracking for curtains would vary from one location to another to suit the type of construction of the room.
Some families used to have two sets of blinds, one for summers and the other for winters. The summer curtains usually consisted of two sets of blinds. Net blinds would be drawn during the day to let the sunlight in, and a heavier set of shades mounted on a separate rail would be used to cover the windows at night.
There are fairly thin living room curtains that help reduce the noise a little but on the opposite end are theater and acoustic curtains that block out a lot more however these are usually a lot more costly. Several curtains will come with various layers like foam or vinyl that can help silence that annoying noise. The curtains with multiple layers even if thin are the ones that have the best results. Recently double curtain setups which reduce noise even more are becoming a popular trend to reduce the noise even further.
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.
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.
