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-
If your bathroom plans consist of finding a very unique shower curtain with a special design the first place you should start looking is at a new modern designed shower curtain. This will give you a very personal one-of-a-kind or maybe a limited-edition shower curtain. A large number manufacturers of well-known brand names will offer a wide variety of different bathroom accessories so that you will be able to match the shower curtain theme or even just to be able to add more to that existing bathroom decor. By just adding a few matching towels or lotion pump or different towel rack at a very reasonable price you can enhance the decor very simply. The basic use for a shower stall curtain is to stop water from damaging the rest of the bathroom; this doesn’t mean you have to live with an unattractive shower curtain. By choosing a beautiful new fabric shower curtain that is treated and has a curtain liner you will find that it won’t decay and will also retain the textiles rich colors, unlike cheaper vinyl curtain that you will replace more often. With the designer fabric shower curtain check and make sure it’s of good quality materials so that you will be able to repeatedly wash it and not lose any of the fabrics colors and not show any signs of wear and tear. All designer fabric shower curtains can be chosen by any size, pattern and various colors. Common sizes that are available are usually 72” x 72” but if you require more you can get extra long shower curtains or an extra wide curtain depending on your bathroom size needs.
As the name suggests, shower curtains are used in the bathroom around the shower area to keep the water from getting all over the bathroom floor. This helps you to keep your bathroom dry and clean at all times. Different synthetic or natural materials determine the different types of shower curtains. Polyester and vinyl shower curtains are waterproof and inexpensive. If you have a bathroom which is luxurious this type of curtain will not match the décor of your room. Curtains made of cotton and linen looks plush and elegant but they mildew if they get damp. You can combine vinyl with cotton for attractiveness and for utility. Vinyl shower curtains come in every imaginable color, pattern and motif. This makes them adaptable to all kinds of styles from the bathroom of your master bedroom to guest’s room to children’s bathroom.
As mentioned above, electric curtain tracks can be fitted which allow you to control your curtains from the comfort of your armchair. Although it may seem like the height of laziness, there is a practical aspect to electric curtain tracks. When on holiday, people typically use automated light-switching devices but have to leave curtains or blinds half open. Electric curtains can be set to open and close at set times each day, giving the impression that someone is home. Alternatively a light sensor can be added to open and close the curtains in conjunction with the daylight hours.
A window management of curtains can add a extraordinary lay a hand on to a room or a window and can also add a measure of privacy. Whatever conclusion you take, a window management of curtains can not only add some shade or consistency to a room, but also can sometimes solve problems you may have with a window. There are many types of curtains and drapes to choose from. One of the most common is the box pleated curtain or drape. These curtains are pre-gathered into pleats at the top of the curtain so that they always have a neat, tailored look.
Acoustic blankets can help out greatly though in areas where it’s hard to hear yourself think over the car noise. Unfortunately no set of curtains will make a room completely soundproof even if you help out the curtains with acoustic blankets. If you are looking for a complete soundproof room there are alternatives like double pane windows, special insulation in the walls, or even different types of drywall. However if you’re looking just to help lower noise and get a better sleep while keeping the costs low then curtains are the way to go.
To sew your own curtains you only need some basic knowledge in needlework. You also need to have the measurements of your windows when you go to purchase the curtain fabric. Sometimes you can also use some of your old clothes to add colorful patchwork to your curtains. All you need is a sketch of how the final look should be.
