Once a style is determined, calculate the height and length of the curtain necessary to cover the intended space. The length should generally be 15% wider than the length to be covered. For a more ruffled look, add 30% to the length. For example: you require 220 of length to cover your space. You would then multiply 220 x .15 and come up with 33; add the 33 to the original 220 and you will need to order a length of 253.
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.
Depending on the breathing space you want to embellish with a window curtain, color is a vital factor, color can relay a the doldrums for that particular room, for example, if you have a room where you like to read, relax and have some quiet time, choose a curtain color which will aid your relaxation - dont go with bright colors. For childrens rooms and rooms where the objective is to have fun, choose a bright color that will add to the fun environment. The color and the design of the curtain fabric are imperative factors to take into account. There are many different designs available, some fun, some serious, some serene. So, before you make your alternative think about the end product and how you want to make the scope sense.
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.
Quality curtain tracking is made of 16 gauge extruded aluminum and is typically sold in eight foot lengths. If shorter lengths are required, tracking may be easily cut down with a hacksaw. Curves pre-bent to 45 deg. and 90 deg. are available for applications requiring the curtain to bend around a room; curves are 2 feet by 2 feet and bent at a 12 inch radius.
