For anyone undertaking an interior decoration project, it is very important that each and every aspect of the room, be it furniture or fabrics or flooring or wall dcor, is given due importance. If you think creatively, each of these important elements, that add up to lend a certain character to the room, can be made to look interesting and attractive. Speaking of fabric, these days, the latest trend that has caught the fancy of many a home owners is to give the windows a layered curtain look. No longer the curtains are hung on windows to simply maintain the inhabitant's privacy. Nowadays, with the layered curtain look, windows can be made the focal point in any room!
Vertical blinds are mostly used in order to give a sophisticated look to the door and the entire room. Sheer vertical blinds are specifically used to give that classy and modern look to your home. One of the major advantages of vertical blinds is that it can be completely stacked to one side to bring sunlight into the room. As they are made of different material, you have a lot of choice to choose from. For e.g., vertical blinds are made of vinyl, fabric, faux wood, aluminum, etc. Blinds with vinyl slats are more commonly used as they are available in myriad colors. Vinyl blinds with slats of split draw, one way draw or center stack are also available in the market. Usually, these blinds are budget friendly. But, those made of wood, add an element of luxury to the room, and are expensive as compared to other vertical blinds. The price of vertical blinds range from $50 onwards; and rises much higher for sheer and wooden ones.
This is not an unattainable task if you have the fabric ready at home. Knowing how to sew curtains will help you to easily fix the grommet rings to the curtains and then hang it. You can purchase the kit for making grommet curtains from any upholstery shop. They will provide you the correct size for the rings and the rod, that has to be passed through it. The steps are explained in the following segment. First take the measurement of the curtain rod and the ring so that they complement each other. Buy the kit accordingly, or else you can purchase the materials separately and then assemble them. Decide how many rings you will require for fixing on the drape. The density of the pleats will depend on the spacing of the rings. If you fix the rings at least 1 inch apart from each other, then, the curtain fabric will be overlapped in a compact manner. This makes the curtain look much more voluminous. Before attaching the rings, you have to pierce holes of the same size to that of the ring on the panel of the curtain. Fold the panel and cut it in a circular fashion. Now sew the sides by hemming it. This forms the attachment zone of the grommet rings. If you have purchased a kit, you will get the punching tool for fixing the rings along with it. Read the instructions mentioned on the label and then start the process. The rings are double layered and you can start fixing according to the suggested technique. Punch it tightly so that they do not fall off, and fix it on the wrong side of the curtain. Once the holes are ready, you can easily pass the rods through it. Pleat it well so that the drapes look compact and full. Drape Designs
Prima facie, wooden blinds are quite easy to clean; only make sure you do not clean or wash them with water. Instead, you can use lemon oil for this purpose, or just vacuum and dust them. Amongst other things, use a feather duster or a damp cloth dipped in a made-for-wood cleaner to clean wooden blinds. While cleaning, open them one way and clean them, and then open them facing the other way to clean the other side. This will ensure that you have cleaned both the sides.
