So how do you narrow all these options down to the perfect curtain rod for your window? It's not as hard as it sounds. Like most projects you'll need to have a plan, so start deciding - -
For all other drape and curtain styles we recommend a visible curtain rod just because it give you the advantage of emphasizing your style. That could mean choosing a natural wood that matches the carved wooden elephant coffee table (everyone has one, right?) or Hanging a gold -toned curtain rod to complement the warm tones in your room. What about using a colorful metal curtain rod to go with that casual, playful look in the sun room? You can see how a decorative, mostly visible curtain rod can be a great choice for your window, and even if your guests never had a clue your choice can show them what a great decorator you really are!
While sewing your curtains make sure that they are not too long-they should just clear the ground. Although long, flowing curtains are beautiful to look at, the extra length will pick up dust and will need cleaning often. Fabrics differ so be sure to check if your choice drapes well. Hold it up against light to be sure the weight doesn't distort the fabric. If you are picking up a curtain with either printed or woven patterns on it, take care while sewing. These patterns will be repeated at regular intervals and you must start your hem at the same place for every cut. While buying material for your window curtains you will usually have two widths to choose from: 54 inches and between 110 and 118 inches wide. The latter is used if you decide not to line your fabric and don't want your curtains to have seams.
Functionality: Both blinds and curtains have the same functionality behind them, which is light control and privacy. Curtains block are known to shut out light, as well as stop those walking by from peering through your home. Curtains add an extra dimension as they are decorative, which can allow you to shine a controlled amount of light and still block out the view from the outside. Whether you choose thick curtains, or lightweight, they can all be adjusted to your needs, but are no longer beneficial once they are wide open. Sheer curtains are normally combined in order to get the benefits once curtains are closed and open.
Try to combine an old style look, with something traditional and you will really hit the spot when it comes to eclectic cafe curtains and interesting curtain rods. The choice is up to you.
