Whenever we consider dressing a window we need to understand how we react to light. If the same type of lighting is used in every room of the house it can create a sense of monotony. The senses of a human being are stimulated by variation and contrast. Light affects the way in which we see and perceive colours, shapes and textures. If lighting is not used correctly it can cause a space to appear dull and washed out. The opposite applies if we are able to use lighting to our advantage, we could create a sense of warmth and intimacy as well as bring a certain energy and mood to a particular area, particularly in the bedroom or living room. Light is diffused through sheer/light fabrics and we can therefore use this principle to create a wonderful ambiance within a room.
Whether you are cordoning off sections of a tattoo parlor, healthcare facility, photography studio, laboratory, class room or a home, curtain tracking has become an easily accessible tool. Selection and installation of curtains and curtain tracking is not rocket science, but here are some pointers to smooth the process. The first step is choosing a curtain. You need to ask yourself what you want your curtain to do. If it is needed it to block light, then a blackout fabric should be chosen. If it must meet state and federal commercial fire codes, then mesh top curtains are necessary to allow sprinkler systems to adequately protect their environment. Quality cubicle and hospital curtains are made with inherently fire retardant materials that are durable, safe, and last throughout the lifetime of the cubicle curtain. There are many colors and styles of fabrics to choose from; including solid colors, striped, textured, patterned and more.

NB Be sure that the rose bud can come apart from the plastic backing of the flower, once the rose and the stem is pushed through the curtain the backing has to be placed back onto the stem on the other side of the curtain in order for the rose to be secured into place. • 1 x Curtain wire or wooden dowel (can be bought from curtain store or home improvement store). • 2 x Hooks and 2 x screw eyes (can be bought from curtain store). • 1 x pliers or hand saw (can be bought from any home improvement store).
