Majority of the manufacturers use FR nylon mesh fabric for the top portion with a snag-free, woven header, along with a grommet for providing support and ensuring durability. The bottom portion would generally be stitched with polyester yarn that possesses 100% fire retardant capacity for absolute flame resistance. The fabrics are classified as antibacterial materials, antimicrobial materials, botanical materials, bio-active materials, and eco-friendly materials. Such materials are normally used for cubicle curtains supplied to hospitals. Shower curtains would be made of normal polyester yarn fabrics, because the other types of fabrics would be too costly to warrant using them in home.
There are different types of curtains that are very difficult to take down from the rod and to maintain. Hence, you should always think twice before purchasing such curtains. It is very difficult to clean these curtains. This is where grommet curtains come across as the best choice because these curtains can easily slide over the rods. They do not come with any complicated stitching. Moreover, the fabric materials like silk, cotton or polyester are easily washable and you can wash them at home in the washing machine.
We can broadly categorize curtains in two ways - by style and by fabric. While curtains are used at different places for different purposes, they tend to be categorized by the use they are going to be put into. You can use only a plastic or chemical quoted plastic curtain in a hospital or shower stall where it come into contact with water frequently. Likewise, you cannot use stylish or fancy curtains in your bed room or drawing room.
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.
The sunnier side of your house should have thick curtains to block the sunlight from heating up your room too much and on the other side you can always use fabrics like net or lace. The design that you choose completely depends on which room you are doing the curtains in. If it is the kid’s room then you should choose something like cartoons or alphabets or numbers or animals etc. If it’s the master bedroom then the curtains should add to the grace of the room, you can have big motifs or designs and the guest room curtains should be subtle and in warm colors. The design completely depends on your liking but you should also remember that the functionality of the curtain should be maintained.
