Blaguna Rajani. Curtains. November 14th , 2016.
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.
One good way to find such drapes for lesser prices is to regularly visit some of the top interior designers' websites. Many designers who design their own upholstery and curtain fabrics periodically hold clearance sales for all their designer fabrics. These discounts can be as much as 50% of the retail price. This is done as each new season approaches, because designers want to unveil their latest collection. Since they cannot stock both the old and the new collection at the same time, it makes sense for them to hold a clearance sale. You can find a lot of variety and style of drapes at a fraction of the original price in these sales. Visiting these as early as possible will ensure that you have a lot of choices in selecting your fabric.
After removing all the dirt and grease, it's time to rinse the blinds, remove all the water from the bathtub, and fill it with clean water. Now, rinse the blinds in this clean water.
Measurements: First of all, you need to determine the amount of fabric that you would need. This can be easily determined by measuring height and width of the gazebo. As far as the length of the curtains is concerned, you need to buy fabric that is 3 inches longer than the measured height of the gazebo. From these extra 3 inches, 1 inch will be needed for the bottom hem, and 2 inches will be required for the top pocket of the gazebo curtain panels. For the width, the fabric that you purchase should be one and a half times longer than the actual width, plus additional 1 inch on both sides for hemming. Method of Sewing: Always use straight and vertical seams throughout the sewing length of the fabric. First of all, sew a 2 inch deep curtain pocket throughout the length of the top side of the fabric. You can increase the length of the pocket, if you are using thick curtain rods. You also need to add 1 inch hem at the sides and bottom. Once you are done with sewing, all you need to do is attach the curtain to the rod on top of the inside frame of the gazebo. You can also create more decorative additions, like adding hooks, Velcro panels, and decorative panels that are easily available on the market.
