Curtain And Blind Installation That Fits: Window treatments such as curtains or blinds are part and parcel of a home's decor, and it can become glaringly obvious if mistakes are made when they are put up or installed. Anything from the top pole being off-center or angled with one side or the other hanging below the other to being the incorrect height for the window-to-floor configuration can really jar the room's sense of order and style. In fact, a miss-hung window treatment can ruin the look of the whole room if not the entire 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.
Maintenance: Curtains aren't something that require consistent cleaning, apart from the times where there may be a little spill or stain. It will important to treat them accordingly, but until then, it's important to give them a wash every 3-4 months. This will keep your curtains colours and longevity, which is only beneficial when it comes to the price of curtains. Lighter curtains can be washed with any home based washing machines, however if you have larger, thick and heavier curtains, it will need to be dry cleaned.

The material you select for your window curtains will depend upon the upholstery of your furniture and the color of the walls. You also need to decide whether you want a thick material to block out sunlight or a lighter material that will let sunlight filter through. If you want to your curtain to be made of silk, make sure that you line it with cotton and interline it with flannel. If you don't do this, the sunlight will fade your silk and you will have to keep replacing your curtains often.
