With the internet it is possible to view the many types of curtains, choose the appropriate style and colour to suit your home. To name a few types of curtains you are likely to find: curtain valance, cascade curtains, shirred curtains, café curtains and more. When you consider curtain types, also investigate the type of hanging style you require, for example you may want to choose a rod which has designs to fit, you may be interested in pelmets or using a tie-back curtain system.
Once the tracking layout is finalized, then determine the number of carriers or rollers needed. Carriers are just that, they carry the curtain along the tracking. The standard style consists of a nylon block and wheels with a swiveling chain and hook attached. A breakaway version is available which acts contrary to its name; the carrier does not break, it flexes. This allows the curtain to detach from the carrier rather than damage the curtain or carrier. Curtain carriers should be spaced every 6 on the curtain. If your curtain is 242 in length, you will want to have 41 carriers.
Curtains with shorter lengths might look a bit awkward, but are ideal to provide a casual and relaxed atmosphere to any room. Long length curtains have another advantage besides being an ambiance enhancer. All ready-made curtains and draperies that are available from curtain suppliers may not suit your requirements, and hence you can go for long length curtains. By doing a length alteration, you can make these curtains easily tailor-made.
Drop chains and PVC drop strips are available for use when ventilation space is required and a mesh top curtain is not an option. A drop chain is 18 long with custom lengths available; it is constructed of nickel-plated steel. A PVC drop strip is 18 long with a hole on top which slips over the curtain carrier; a plated hook at the bottom connects to the cubicle curtain.
If you choose translucent curtains such as nets or sheer curtains which can often create a subtle light effect on your room during the day, it is important to remember that these curtains do not provide privacy, especially at night time. These types of curtains can be used in conjunction with opaque curtains to aid in desired privacy. These net curtains can aid in preventing glare during the day, although not totally blocking light. If your window requires more privacy during the day time from peering eyes, consider using sheer or net curtains, along with opaque curtains for night privacy.
