Vera Holden. Curtain. March 02nd , 2018.
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?
Designing with Curtains: It’s one thing to mix and match styles of drapes until you feel as though you have a selection that will work more or less OK with a specific room or area—and quite another to make conscious design choices along the way that result in a more cohesive effect.
Window Curtains! Dressing your windows up with cloth curtains since they are relatively cheap and low-maintenance as well as durable and best for blocking sunlight. You will find a wide range of fibers and patterns to choose from. You can also choose between lightweight weaves and the heavier drapes. You can sew the material creatively to bring out your taste and style.
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.
Rings and pinch clips are similar: they slide on the curtain rod and attach to the curtains. In other words the rod and rings or clips are visible, sort of like some shower curtains. Brackets are used to hold decorative rods on the wall. They come in every imaginable color, material, style... You won't have trouble finding a pair to fit your room.
