Whoa - what are all those things? Well, the finial is that decorative thing that attaches to the end of the rod. You can get them in pretty much any style, size and color you want. Be sure to match it to the rod size, room style and color scheme.
Transparency Matters - Always consider the amount of light that a particular set of draperies will let in – and how various combinations of draperies might work well together. Sheer Curtains, for instance, can be very effective at letting in light. They can also be modulated by adding a set of Signature Blackout Velvet Curtains. Mixing and matching various drapery openings can often give you just the right quality of light for every occasion.
Holdbacks and tiebacks serve the same purpose: to gently scoop up your curtains and hold them at the side of the window. Holdbacks are attached directly to the wall. Tiebacks are often lengths of cording, some with tassel ends that tie around the \"belly\" of your open curtains to hold them back. So here you are then, ready to make that plan, Stan, for creating a room you'll love - all by beginning with the perfect curtain rods!... Who'd a though?
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.
Cafe Curtains - Country Home: If you want to have a country home setup, then you have lots of possibilities to choose from. Easiest is to find a tree branch that would be perfect for your window and would match your cafe curtains. Besides the wood as a classic, you can also pick an iron rod or some old, rejected part that can fit as a curtain rod.
