Roll up shades or window blinds have slats that are mainly used to prevent light from entering a room. The slats are made of wood, metal, fabric or even plastic. Metal blinds are usually used for outdoors as they are weather resistant and durable. These blinds have a string or a cord which enables one to change the degree of the slats, depending on the amount of light required. Slats on these blinds can be either horizontal or vertical. Horizontal window blinds are more commonly known as Venetian blinds. The vertical roll up blinds, though not as common as horizontal ones, are easier to use and clean, and can even be used for doors.
Rings and pinch clips are similar: they slide on the curtain rod and attach to the curtains. In other words the rod and rings or clips are visible, sort of like some shower curtains.
The first company to match up the window covering colours with their bedding set patterns was a company by the name of Croscill Bedding. The first matching patterns that Croscill offered were known as Arsenic and Old lace, coined from a popular Cary Grant movie. Because of their original ideas that were such a breakthrough in design, they have become one of the biggest names in themes for your bedroom. Today you can get and entire decorative motif from Croscill that spans from bedroom to bathroom. If you don't have the funds for a professional interior decorator, you can shop Croscill and get everything that you need to successfully decorate your home in an elegant fashion on your own. Other companies soon followed suit, and today you can find window treatments for every room and any style imaginable. Many companies now offer patterns in similar colour schemes which can be mixed and matched to suit a variety of tastes.
Fabric for these curtains is available in different designs in fabric houses. It can be simple cotton or a fine silk. You can choose drapery fabric or upholstery fabric. Super satin silk looks extremely gorgeous, whereas simple cotton with frills look very neat. Designs like striped, floral, sheer, plaid, and checkered fabrics with multicolors are a favorite during summer. Velvet and faux silk curtains look dazzling.
