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.
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.
Earlier curtains were only used to cover the windows and to stop the wind or bright sunny rays from entering the rooms. Nowadays, the curtains have become an important part of your interior decor and they are especially designed or picked from the upholstery to match the interior theme. If you want some wonderful curtains to decorate your windows, then you should choose from the latest grommet drapes that look simply adorable on all types of windows. Over the years, the popularity of these curtains has grown immensely because they are versatile and can convert a dull looking room into a modern and bright one.
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.
With so many working parts or fiddly clips, blinds tend to be less reliable than curtains on a track or a pole. Combining curtains with a good, reliable curtain track or pole can be a more cost effective option; especially as curtain prices have been greatly reduced since the introduction of ready-made and express curtain making services. And if your requirements change, you can simply hang new curtains on your existing track or pole.
Lace or sheer curtains will get damaged if thrown directly into a washing machine. You have two good options for cleaning more delicate materials. You can simply hand wash them to avoid fraying the fabric. Alternatively, still use a washing machine but first seal the curtain in a mesh bag to protect it from damage.
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.
