Cotton was the main fabric used in traditional blinds, as it could be easily dyed in different colours, and designs could be woven in the fabric or printed on them. Lace blinds, with different designs woven in them, were also an extensive and essential part of traditional shades. In fact, lace curtains are quite popular even today.
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.
Living rooms are a great place to add some high-end curtains. Here you can splurge on custom curtains to ensure you get the proper lengths to enhance your room and give the allusion of a grander space. Some nice curtains to add to a living room are velvet curtains or silk curtains. Both styles showcase elegance and give a rich appearance. If you are trying to create a formal living room, be sure to add tassels and trims to your curtains. This will also be a nice place to layer curtains, by adding a set of sheer curtains behind your main drapery panels. If you prefer a more relaxed living area, or may have a high traffic area in this space you can add nice contemporary cotton curtains that can be washed.
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.
Large windows are most likely found in large rooms such as the bedroom or the living room. Choosing the curtains for these rooms will be determined by certain factors. Some rooms require more privacy than others do; others require more light and require sound absorption. The beauty value of the curtain should also be considered. Finally, before purchasing the curtains consider all the rooms in the house and their decorations. Sometimes it may be a good idea to consult an interior decoration expert.
Tracking could be classified as ceiling mounted cubicle track and suspended cubicle track. The ceiling mounted cubicle tracking systems would be made out of aluminum and could be used effectively for covering the beds of patients, separating shower areas in the bathrooms, or in any other places where personal privacy is needed. In places where the ceilings are very high or other obstructions prevent the mounting of curtain track in the ceiling directly, suspended cubicle tracking system is utilized. In the suspended tracking systems, the curtain track is suspended by an aluminum tube that is fixed to the ceiling and the track with plastic flanges.
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.
