The more you learn how to hang curtains, the more this becomes second nature. Before you hang curtains.stop and check! Before you start to hang your curtain you need to lay your curtain down on a table or the floor and check the gathered width is about right. Then if to narrow then pull out the tape a little. If to wide then gather in the tape a little more. what about the surplus cord? Finally sorting out all that surplus cord and evening up the pleats in the tape.

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.

The length should generally be 15% wider than the length to be covered. For a more ruffled look, add 30% to the length. For example: you require 220" of length to cover your space. You would then multiply 220" x .15 and come up with 33"; add the 33" to the original 220" and you will need to order a length of 253". To establish the height of the curtain there are three measurements needed to be determined. Begin by measuring the height from the floor to the ceiling. For this example lets start with a 10 foot ceiling which is 120 inches in height. Next measure the height of the carrier and curtain tracking; this is usually 3"-4" combined. The third measurement to determine is the open space wanted below the bottom of the curtain; 12"-18" is typical. Take the ceiling height of 120" and subtract 12" for bottom clearance and 4" for tracking and carriers and this leaves a final curtain height of 104". Typical curtain sizes range from 72" to 234" wide and 84" to 108" long. Cubicle curtains can be made to order and customized in most cases. Healthcare facilities often have building and fire codes which must be met; check with an administrator before proceeding.

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.

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).

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.

You name it and they are there. You will find use of curtains right from the olden times. Whether they are there can be due to different reasons. It can either be for functional purposes such as to afford protection from elements such as wind, red - hot sun or winter snows or purely as an outlet for mans creative spirits and décor. Whatever may be the reason curtains and their rods have been a part of human existence and will continue to be there for ages to come. We can broadly categorize curtains in two ways - by style and by fabric. While curtains are used at different places for different purposes, they tend to be categorized by the use they are going to be put into. You can use only a plastic or chemical quoted plastic curtain in a hospital or shower stall where it come into contact with water frequently. Likewise, you cannot use stylish or fancy curtains in your bed room or drawing room.

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.

Lets take a look at the top 10 advantages of curtains over blinds. Curtains add visual elegance to a room Where both vertical and horizontal blinds just cover the window and add very little to the look and feel of the room, curtains and their fittings add a certain style. Curtain poles come in a wide variety of styles, from simple metal curtain poles to wood effect ones. Finials (the decorative ends of the curtain poles) also come in all shapes and sizes, so you are sure to find a style that suits your room. 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.
Demi Binet Curtain, 2017-12-28 11:58:20. 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.
Paulette Lafontaine Curtain, 2017-12-28 11:46:09. Once the tracking layout is finalized, then determine the number of carriers or rollers needed. Carriers are just that, they carry the curtain along the tracking. The standard style consists of a nylon block and wheels with a swiveling chain and hook attached. A breakaway version is available which acts contrary to its name; the carrier does not break, it flexes. This allows the curtain to detach from the carrier rather than damage the curtain or carrier. Curtain carriers should be spaced every 6" on the curtain. If your curtain is 242" in length, you will want to have 41 carriers. Drop chains and PVC drop strips are available for use when ventilation space is required and a mesh top curtain is not an option. A drop chain is 18" long with custom lengths available; it is constructed of nickel-plated steel. A PVC drop strip is 18" long with a hole on top which slips over the curtain carrier; a plated hook at the bottom connects to the cubicle curtain. Prior to installation, the job should be laid out on the floor in its intended position with all fittings properly located. This will prove valuable in determining whether all required parts are on hand and ensures proper location and placement.

Start with the left or right curtain first and open it up so that it is spread out wide across the window, this way so you can see exactly where you have made the marks and where you are going to place the roses. For this purpose I am going to attach six roses to each curtain using a sequence of three. Remove the plastic backing from the rose by giving it a good pull; your rose will now be in two parts, (the backing and also the rose and stem). Start at the top left hand corner of the curtain, using the awl push a hole through the organza where you have made your first mark, NB its easier and is likely to make a cleaner hole if you hold the fabric on either side of the mark that you made whilst pushing the awl through. Once the hole has been made (ensure that it is big enough for the stem to go through) push the stem of the rose through the hole and secure the rose by pushing the plastic backing back onto the stem which will now be facing the back of the curtain, push it up as far as it will go, this will ensure that the rose wont fall off when its being laundered.
