If you have tall windows with an arch, the horizontal ones can be a great pick. You can have two separate sections of blinds in this case. Wooden blinds look awesome. Get the roll-up bamboo blinds installed, and have a perfect looking arched window. You can go in for shutter blinds or pleated horizontal fabric blinds as well. Choose blinds in plain colors or simple prints. Light colors are the best to be used for these windows.
So, if you don't find the bamboo rods you are looking for, you can easily make them yourself to match your taste. You may use antique fittings for darker colored rods, or lighter fittings if you are using them in their natural form. Use this eco-friendly material in your home decor, and see the difference it makes to the overall appearance of your room.
Many people believe that the look of wooden coverings is unmatchable and it looks extremely classy. However, if you get regular wooden blinds for your bathroom, they are sure to get damaged. Go for the ones which are treated to be waterproof and hence, are suitable for shower rooms and wet rooms. Check out the faux wood options which are a synthetic alternative to wooden ones. These are suitable for bathroom window shades which are actually made of PVC, but look like wooden blinds to common observers.
There are various patterns, variety, colors and sizes made available for you. If at all, you do not find a suitable one for your window, you can get it stitched. We shall first do the measurements required in order fit the curtains. With the help of a yardstick, draw a line across the top, bottom and sides of the area you want to cover. This forms the window, measure this across the top, bottom and sides. After measuring, note down the largest measurement. The next step is to measure the entire surface area covered by the window. Make a note of the side of the window with the longest measurement. The largest of the sides and the one noted down previously, will form the actual size of the window. Now we move on to the stitching of the curtains. You need to first purchase a fabric measuring a little more than this size to allow room for error while sewing. A hem of 5/8 inch needs to be sewed on both the sides of the curtain. Mark a hem of 1 inch on the top and bottom of the curtain. Both ends of the curtain should have a pocket. Attach the cafe rods on the lines marking the top and the bottom of the curtain. These rods should be as close as possible to the door. Remove the rods from the mounting brackets, and slide them through the top and bottom hem pockets of the curtain. Replace the rods in the brackets and then finally adjust the gathers at the top and bottom, which will complete the procedure. I am sure this article must have proved to be of help for choosing curtains for French doors. Along with curtains, you can also use drapes and roll up blinds to give it that extraordinary look and feel. Make sure you select the design according to the color and design of the door. If the curtains perfectly match the outlook of the room, it will add to the homeliness of the house in general.
