As we have discussed before, it is impossible to name all the variations of curtains available on the market today. Shopping for curtains is made easier for customers today with the use of the worldwide web. Most curtain retail suppliers have web sites where their customers can peruse curtain catalogues, see different hangings, view materials and designs and more. With popular curtain retailers, customers are able to order samples of materials and shop for curtains online. This new and easy way of shopping makes choosing curtains easier as you can be in your home when visiting curtain retailers web sites.
Floor-length curtains are also perfect for bay or picture windows. Massive windows can be given strokes of elegance by decorating it with long length curtains. Extra long curtains that puddle on the floor will enhance the appearance of a romantic room. The bottom portion of the extra long curtains can be allowed to stack on the floor and can be positioned in nice folds. This is a great way of attaching a refined look to a gracefully furnished room.
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.
An end-stop should be placed at both ends of the curtain tracking setup. Curtain tracking end-stops are used to prevent curtain carriers from slipping out. One end should contain a snap out fitting to allow for easy installation and replacement of curtain carriers. Snap out fittings sit inside an end-stop and are easily removed. Removal is necessary to install or replace your curtain carriers without removing the curtain tracking from the ceiling.
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.
