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.
The first step is choosing a curtain. You need to ask yourself what you want your curtain to do. If it is needed it to block light, then a blackout fabric should be chosen. If it must meet state and federal commercial fire codes, then mesh top curtains are necessary to allow sprinkler systems to adequately protect their environment. Quality cubicle and hospital curtains are made with inherently fire retardant materials that are durable, safe, and last throughout the lifetime of the cubicle curtain. There are many colors and styles of fabrics to choose from; including solid colors, striped, textured, patterned and more.
When you choose your curtains for any particular room, consider the aesthetic appeal of the room, whether the curtain enhances a certain style or colour, if done properly the curtain will not only enhance the style of the room, but adds an opulent feel to any space. Be aware that the incorrect choice such as curtains which are dirty and unkempt or miss-matched can give any room an extremely gloomy, uneasy look. When decorating your home with curtains, consider the underside of the curtain, and how it will appear from the outside, especially if your window is street or entrance facing. The appearance of your curtains from the outside of your house will immediately affect the appearance of your house from the street.
There is no spat regarding the significance of curtain lengths in adding to the mood of the room. Long length curtains are ideal for those rooms that display formal attitude and cater to official activities. Curtains that touch the floor are apt for living rooms and formal dining rooms. Curtains that flaunt floor-to-ceiling length will add a refined elegance to any room by making the ceiling of the room making the ceiling of the room appear taller. These types of curtains are ideal if you want to offer a sophisticated look to the room. Family rooms are ideal candidates for these kinds of long length curtains.
A window management of curtains can add a extraordinary lay a hand on to a room or a window and can also add a measure of privacy. Whatever conclusion you take, a window management of curtains can not only add some shade or consistency to a room, but also can sometimes solve problems you may have with a window. There are many types of curtains and drapes to choose from. One of the most common is the box pleated curtain or drape. These curtains are pre-gathered into pleats at the top of the curtain so that they always have a neat, tailored look.
