'Curtains are sold in pairs. The size given refers to each individual curtain so if you buy a pair of curtains measuring 117 x 137cm (46 x 54") you are buying two curtains and each one will measure 117 x 137cm (46 x 54") 'The size of the curtain allows for them to have a gathered look when they are closed 'Curtains are always measured width first and then length
Gone are the days when most of the house owners and all members of the family were quite happy with the readymade curtains and drapes that made their way to the stocks of different stores. These days, people are eager to get custom made drapes and curtains for the windows and doors at their houses or offices. Apart from exercising their creativity, the house owner and his family members also get a chance to decorate their houses with custom styling of the curtains and drapes.
Curtains are often used to conceal the interiors from the outside while allowing the light to filter through. Since they block the sun, they bear the brunt of harsh ultraviolet rays which can cause the colors to fade over time. The effect is accelerated by exposure and intensity so those living in warm climates will be affected quite severely. Vibrantly colored curtains will turn pale after years of continuous use. The darker the initial shade, the more obvious this will be. Smart homeowners will therefore turn to white curtains as these do not have any dyes to worry about. They will retain their appearance for many years with proper care. Another trick is to use a double curtain configuration wherein white curtains face the sun while colored curtains face the room.
It should be remembered that both insulated drapes and thermal curtains are heavy and thick and can be difficult to hang, you may require a fitting service which many curtain retailers provide. It is quite possible to attach a thermal liner to existing curtains or hung completely separately to the curtain. Another benefit of lined curtains is that the lining can help prevent fading caused to material when hung in direct sunlight for long periods of time. A separate liner also acts as a barrier and prevents dust and dirt from the window dirtying the curtain fabric. A separate liner will also enable the separate curtains to hang more attractively due to the reduced thickness and you will be able to clean the liner separately when required without having completely bare windows.Blinds vs Curtains: Who Wins?
