The buttonhooks require some extra fabric to make the straps. You will need a number of straps cut into equal sizes depending on the length of the curtain. The buttons should then be sewed on one end of each strap. Finally make buttonholes at the top edge of the curtain with regard to the size of the straps. One of the advantages of this method is that by adjusting the position of the buttonholes you can adjust the height of the curtain from the ground.
Ring Top curtains are yet another variety of beautiful window curtains and speak for themselves. You have the option to use a wide variety of fabrics like silk sari, taffeta, polyester or with/without lining. These curtains impart a style of its own – elegant, sunny and charming beyond definition.
The richer class of women preferred silk, velvet and linen traditional curtains. A lot of thought and craftsmanship used to go into hanging the blinds in the most elaborate way. Blinds with pencil points and French pleats, with sashes to tie them, were considered to be the height of fashion in traditional curtains. Lace and embroidered edging was added to make traditional curtains look more unique. Some traditional curtains were lined to protect them from fading from sunlight.
For bedrooms with large windows, the curtains can be used to add coziness to the room. If the room is small, they can help to make it look bigger or spacious. You can have floor length curtains made of lace or satin, which is ideal for both children and adult bedrooms. You can also use sheer curtains in the bedroom, which make it look good and also make it appear bigger and spacious. The curtains can either be roll ups or pull apart and you can also have valances or cornices.
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.
When open, curtains frame a window beautifully, creating a border which is lacking with blinds. Whether pulled up or to the side, blinds cover only the window, whereas curtains can hang below and to the side of the window. Tying curtains back adds a certain elegance which blinds cannot offer.
Blinds can be dust traps, especially horizontal ones. As more people are suffering from asthma and dust allergies, curtains are a healthy choice, requiring little care to keep them clean and presentable. The tracks and poles need little servicing and the curtains need only be vacuumed or dry cleaned on the odd occasion.
