Curtains and curtain tracks or poles can be bent to fit a bay window Although some vertical blinds can be bent to the shape of a bay window, a vertical blind will take away the lovely effect and leave the room looking more like an office. A curtain track or curtain pole can be made to measure and bent to suit a bay window and the curtains will once again add elegance and style. Curtain tracks are also more flexible and can be made to fit a wider range of bay windows. Increased fitting flexibility Some of todays more modern windows and patio doors open inwards leaving little space to fix. With curtain tracks that can be as small as 5mm and some that can even be recess fixed into a ceiling, this will leave plenty of room for a window or door to open inwards.
Medium weight curtains use nylon hooks, stronger than plastic. They will flex without breaking. Heavy curtains use metal nickel hooks, they are bit fiddly to handle they all stick together the box. Just like the Chinese puzzles I had as a child. Curtain hooks for bucram headed curtains You will need what are called "pin hooks" simply because they have a sharp pin which pierces through the fabric and bucram on the back of the curtain header. This kind of heading makes for the best looking curtains. As always the best all ways costs that bit more.
Silk organza or muslin will be ideal fabrics to use but you could also create amazing unconventional window dressings with sari fabric, netting or lace. Browse around at flea markets, thrift stores or garage sales and youll be amazed at what you can find that can inspire you to create striking designs for your windows. Next, I will explain to you step-by-step how to create your own embellished romantic rose (organza) curtain, you will need the following: • 2 x organza curtains (preferably with tab tops, these are generally readily available at curtain stores, be sure to measure the width and length of your window to ensure that the curtains will fit, alternatively, you can actually purchase organza fabric and fit them to the window yourself. • 1 x awl (this is a pointed instrument for piercing holes through fabric, leather or wood etc. any art and craft store should stock them). • 12 x artificial roses (can be bought from most Asian outlets, preferably the same or similar colour as the organza curtain, using clashing colours can make the curtain appear disjointed and chaotic. 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).
