Before you actually start hanging up vertical blinds, you need to ensure that you have everything you need in order to hang up the blinds. For the process of hanging up vertical blinds you will need a tape measure, a level, a drill, a screwdriver, marker or pencil, the blinds, and studs or brackets. Before you actually start hanging up the blinds you need to take the proper measurements for the blinds. Vertical blinds are either hung on inside mounts or outside mounts and depending on what type of mounts you choose, the method of measurement will differ. For an inside mount, you need to measure the width of the inside of the window at the top, middle, and the bottom and use the shortest width. The shortest height is taken into consideration after measuring the height at the right, center, and left. You will also need to measure the depth of the window frame. Normally you need a depth of at least two and a half inches. For the outside mounts, you will need to measure the width, across the window and then add four inches on each side. Ensure that you leave about half an inch of clear space at the bottom. The height of the window can be measured by measuring the center of the window from the top to bottom. Ensure that you add six inches to the height that you have measured. Once you have decide on the type of mount you want to use, follow the simple instructions given here to learn how to hang vertical blinds.
There are many variations in pleated drapes; viz: goblet pleats, pencil pleats, French pleats, box pleats, and pinched pleats. The pinch pleated ones are available in double or triple folds, and are very easy to make at home.
How to Sew Pinch Pleat Curtains Taking the correct measurement is the key factor for a perfect finish. The width of pinch curtains is usually the double of the drapery rod. This is because the pleats will be compacted, due to which more width is needed. The length is measured till the floor. Now start making the curtain with the provided fabric. The process starts with making the panel for the rod. The sides of the panel are left raw since the curtain rod will pass through it. Stitch the ends after passing the rod. Making the pleats is also very simple. Take a strip of fabric, fold it and then stitch the below the panel to make the pleats. Repeat the process till the end of the width. You can make each pleat of half inch. Cluster three pleats together and tie a tape around them from at least 4 inches from the top of the panel. Fix three pleats together after every cluster and follow the same pattern for the entire width. Now, attach the curtain hooks to the panel to hang the curtain. Once you have hung it properly, the pinch pleats will be prominent and the curtain will acquire a dense volume. Curtain Designs
