As aforementioned, there is an immense variety in terms of visual appeal when it comes to cafe curtains as a choice among kitchen window curtains. How you want your kitchen to look after you install these is completely your choice. From plain old cotton to lace and embroidered fabrics, there is a great choice out there. Apart from this, such curtains are available in various prints also, such as floral and checked prints. You may even choose curtains with abstract prints and designs. A modern touch can also be added in terms of the patterns that you use to make these curtains. While the basic structure can remain the same, the way you wish to show off these curtains is completely your call. If you want a traditional and grand look, have an elaborate valance with rich fabrics to highlight the lower curtains. Otherwise, you could simply get rid of the valance altogether, and just have the lower curtains. For more modern ideas, you could have vertical blinds made of fabric in the lower portion, and eliminate the valance above. Further, you could also have long curtains (if there is enough space) to cover the window.
There are various curtain fabrics that can be used to satisfy the above requirements. These curtain fabrics can be installed in various ways to cover the patio door. Insulated patio door curtains, also referred as thermal curtains, are in vogue in these days. As their name suggests, they provide good insulation to the room by preserving the hot or cool temperature in the room. Almost 50% of the heat is either absorbed or released by glass patio doors, and hence insulated curtains can help you to keep the room cool in summer and warm in winter. Pinch pleat curtains, valances, solid patterns, etc., are some of the varieties that can be used for insulated patio door curtains.
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.
