Prolong the life of your drapes by regularly removing dust and dirt. Once a week you should vacuum the curtains using the upholstery attachment. Some curtains are light and delicate. In these cases vacuuming could damage them, so give them a good shake instead to dislodge dust particles.
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.
If you are looking for something trendy or fashionable, you can go for rod pocket curtains for your windows. These curtains/drapes/panels are very popular and extensively employed to give a trendy décor look. These curtains are hung on curtain rods.

Modern houses today the windows are quite large so they can look very decorative bunched up tied up either side of the window people like curtains in living rooms and dining room to fit in how they have decorated the rooms.
