Curtain. Tuesday , March 21st , 2017 - 20:19:53 PM
How will your rods be hung - inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame - on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5\" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12\" longer than your window width. And don't be fooled: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size, but they may not be!
A little research in the internet proves worthy. You will be amazed at the designs, styles, and sizes of the curtains rods that are easily accessible in the market. There are drapery rods, traverse rods, decorative rods, cafe rods, canopy rods, valance rods (lock seam rods), spring tension rods or sash rods, swing arm rods, wide rods, traverse-and-valance rods, magnetic curtain rods, etc. Well, the list does not seem to end here, you might discover even more! The point is that you have a big chance to find out the right kind of curtain rod for your home.
While sewing your curtains make sure that they are not too long-they should just clear the ground. Although long, flowing curtains are beautiful to look at, the extra length will pick up dust and will need cleaning often. Fabrics differ so be sure to check if your choice drapes well. Hold it up against light to be sure the weight doesn't distort the fabric. If you are picking up a curtain with either printed or woven patterns on it, take care while sewing. These patterns will be repeated at regular intervals and you must start your hem at the same place for every cut. While buying material for your window curtains you will usually have two widths to choose from: 54 inches and between 110 and 118 inches wide. The latter is used if you decide not to line your fabric and don't want your curtains to have seams.
