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.
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.
Curtain tracking can be attached to solid or false/drop down ceilings using screws or clips. Attaching the tracking to a solid ceiling requires the use of screws; screw directly into ceiling studs whenever possible. Holes will need to be drilled into the tracking at each attaching point. It is not always possible to screw into a stud. When this occurs, the use of an anchor is necessary. An anchor is pressed into a pre-drilled hole. As a screw is inserted into the anchor; the anchor expands and grabs firmly to the ceiling. Drop down/false ceilings require clips which are attached to the ceiling grid. There is a hole tapped into each clip that accepts a screw from the curtain tracking. These clips should be placed every 30.
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.
