Easy to keep clean 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. Want a new look and feel? Although white or cream blinds will fit in with most room styles and colours, they do nothing to enhance it. Curtains can blend in with your room, or can be chosen to enhance or contrast with it. Redecorating? No problem, just choose new curtains to match. Curtains can also have trimmings and contrast edges to pick out other colours within the room. Buttons can be added to pleats, cord can be added to edges or pleats as can a contrast trimming. Curtains offer a much wider scope for design.
If you were to consider the many different types of curtains, you will be left feeling confused; there are a wide range of creatively developed curtains. According to your taste and personal style, the type of curtain you choose reflects your personality and reflects the feel of your home you wanted to create. Depending on the room you want to dress with curtains, the function and style of each considered curtain needs to be discussed and well thought out. From kitchen windows to bedroom windows, the function of these curtains must suit that particular room. If you choose translucent curtains such as nets or sheer curtains which can often create a subtle light effect on your room during the day, it is important to remember that these curtains do not provide privacy, especially at night time. These types of curtains can be used in conjunction with opaque curtains to aid in desired privacy. These net curtains can aid in preventing glare during the day, although not totally blocking light. If your window requires more privacy during the day time from peering eyes, consider using sheer or net curtains, along with opaque curtains for night privacy.
Curtains can be controlled remotely 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. Curtains are easy to hang Want to change your curtains? Simply unhook them from your curtain pole, attach the hooks to your new curtains and away you go. Replacing vertical blinds can involve unhooking each blind from the next, unclipping each one carefully (the plastic is easy to snap), and then going through the whole rigmarole in reverse to put them back up. Other blinds must be removed all in one, making it easy to damage them as they are taken down or put back up. Reliable and cost effective 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.
Repeat the process on the top right hand side of the same curtain, now find the centre between the two roses and to create a bit of interest attach the middle rose slightly lower than the rose on the left and the right. Place the fourth rose underneath the third middle rose but slightly lower. Place the fifth rose to the left side of the fourth one but slightly lower (should be in line with the first rose attached at the top left side of the curtain), now the attach the sixth rose to the right of the fourth rose but slightly lower (should be in line with the second rose attached at the top right side of the curtain. Your sequence of six is now complete and I personally find that this pattern is most pleasing to the eye, you could of course embellish the whole curtain, it really depends on the look which you are trying to achieve.
NB It is important that you get the sequence 100% correct before you make the marks and the holes, should you realise that you want to change the roses around after the holes have been made you run the risk of having gaping holes in your curtain which could look rather messy. The next step will be to measure the top width of the window frame and then cut the dowel or curtain wire in order to fit (using either a pliers if it is wire or a hand saw if you are cutting the dowel). If you are using curtain wire go to the top of the window frame and attach one screw eye on the left and right hand side of the frame. Ready made organza curtains should have tabs at the top, attach hooks to both ends of the curtain wire and then thread the wire through the tabs of both curtains and attach the wire to the screw eyes on the window frame. If you are using a wooden dowel use cup hooks and not screw eyes for the dowel to rest on. Thread the dowel through the tabs and place on cup hooks.
