Curtain rods form the basic hardware for installation of curtains. While adding curtains to regular windows you just need to buy straight rods which are easily available in the hardware stores. But not all windows are square or rectangular. In case you are looking to dress up a window which is curved, like the arch window, a straight rod is of no use for the same. Well, in such a case you just need to opt for a bendable curtain rod. Wondering what is it? Here's more about the same.
Measurements: First of all, you need to determine the amount of fabric that you would need. This can be easily determined by measuring height and width of the gazebo. As far as the length of the curtains is concerned, you need to buy fabric that is 3 inches longer than the measured height of the gazebo. From these extra 3 inches, 1 inch will be needed for the bottom hem, and 2 inches will be required for the top pocket of the gazebo curtain panels. For the width, the fabric that you purchase should be one and a half times longer than the actual width, plus additional 1 inch on both sides for hemming. Method of Sewing: Always use straight and vertical seams throughout the sewing length of the fabric. First of all, sew a 2 inch deep curtain pocket throughout the length of the top side of the fabric. You can increase the length of the pocket, if you are using thick curtain rods. You also need to add 1 inch hem at the sides and bottom. Once you are done with sewing, all you need to do is attach the curtain to the rod on top of the inside frame of the gazebo. You can also create more decorative additions, like adding hooks, Velcro panels, and decorative panels that are easily available on the market.
Blackout blinds are more effective than blackout shades as they have slats that can be adjusted according to the amount of light required. Also, blackout shades are considered outdated these days. Installing a window blind yourself is not difficult. If not, one can always take help of a professional. Installing these window blinds will ensure you have privacy to enjoy movies on your home theater or have a good undisturbed afternoon nap, whatever your desire might be!
