Rajya Maureen Curtains, February 15th , 2017. 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.

Corina Marisol Curtains, February 15th , 2017. Parameter Drapes Curtains Picture Drapes Curtains Definition Drapes are defined as heavy weight, lined, floor length fabric which is hung on the rod with the help of hooks for the purpose of traversing. Drapery, drapery panels, drops are alternative names for drapes. Curtains on the other hand are light weight, unlined fabric of varying length which is attached to the rod with the help of rings, grommets, tabs or rod pocket casing. Curtains are also called curtain panels. Fabric Rich fabrics like silk, velvet look great for drapes. Fabrics for drapes are often costlier than that of curtains. Cotton, linen work well for curtains. Curtains can also be made out of sheer, lacy fabrics, if you do not intend to use them for privacy purpose. Pattern and Length Drapes are more often than not pleated. There are various pleats that are popular such as French, American, etc. Drapes are always floor length, irrespective of the size of the window or door. Curtains may or may not be pleated. Their length is determined by the size of window. It can either be just long enough to cover the window or it may extend well beyond that. Curtains for French doors are often long and pleated, whereas curtains for sliding glass doors may or may not be pleated. Utility Drapes provide the utility of shielding against light and dust. They are better equipped at filtering light and permit only some of the sunlight to enter the room. Curtains also shield your room from light and dust. However, they are inept at filtering light due to their sheer fabric. Privacy Drapes are made from thick fabric, hence provide better privacy. Moreover, they are lined, which further increases their protection. Hence, drapes are suitable in apartments or neighborhoods where homes are closely located. Curtains are unlined, therefore provide less privacy. They are more apt for large country homes which are better protected from intruders. Elegance Undoubtedly, drapes look more elegant than curtains. It is mostly their rich fabric and pleats which make them even more desirable. Also, the fact that the length of the drapes extends to touch the floor adds to the beauty of the drapes. Hence, drapes are more suitable for elegant places like marriage halls, banquet halls, manors and mansions, churches, etc. Curtains are more of a utility than an accent piece in your home. They look appropriate for homes, offices and other such formal establishments. Space Requirement Drapes take up considerable amount of space due to their heavy fabric. Stack back is the factor that determines the space requirement of drapes. This is nothing but the amount of space required by the drape when opened completely, so that fabric collects at the opposite ends of the rod. The more the pleats, the greater is the stack back. As curtains lack pleats they are more space efficient. Besides, their fabric is often light and sheer, thereby reducing the total bulk, when opened completely. Cost Drapes are obviously costlier than curtains due to the type of fabric used, as well as the quantity of fabric and pattern. Their installation is also expensive. You can hang the curtains on your own, without professional help. Making the curtains at home is also not a difficult task if you are good at sewing.
Rashmi Jameela Curtains, February 14th , 2017. Holdbacks and tiebacks serve the same purpose: to gently scoop up your curtains and hold them at the side of the window. Holdbacks are attached directly to the wall. Tiebacks are often lengths of cording, some with tassel ends that tie around the "belly" of your open curtains to hold them back.
Marisol Mac Curtains, February 15th , 2017. Although, curtains and drapes may not seem to have much of a difference, they are quite different from each other in the hindsight.
Amor Pistis Curtains, February 16th , 2017. Always measure your windows before buying a double curtain rod. This involves taking an accurate measurement of the window's width and length. Most probably you will get a kit along with the rods from the home improvement store itself.
Pax Ivanna Curtains, February 14th , 2017. Whoa - what are all those things? Well, the finial is that decorative thing that attaches to the end of the rod. You can get them in pretty much any style, size and color you want. Be sure to match it to the rod size, room style and color scheme.
Korinna Kriemhild Curtains, February 18th , 2017. One of the most economic and easy to apply methods of insulating your home is to dress your windows with insulated or thermal curtains. This thought probably drums images of dreary looking drapes that will do nothing for the appeal of your home. The term thermal curtains sounds dull and responsible causing you to envisage something industrial; these were exactly my own thoughts when I first came across the term thermal curtains. It will be a relief to hear that I was mistaken and thermal curtains are anything but boring; there are so many variations of beautiful thermal curtains available that something suitable can be found for any home.
