Once you know what kind of room you have and whether a lighter or heavier window treatment will look better, then you can move on to choosing colours and patterns. Some people choose to match their curtains to a sofa that they have in the room. This is a great idea for rooms that do not contain much colour. However, if the room is papered and the sofa is a dark colour or bold pattern, then this is not such a good idea. The blinds or other coverings should not be the focal point of a room. In general, the smaller the room the smaller the window coverings should be.
While buying material for your window curtains you will usually have two widths to choose from: 54 inches and between 110 and 118 inches wide. The latter is used if you decide not to line your fabric and don't want your curtains to have seams.
Once you are done with measuring and cutting the fabric, you now need to hem the fabric on all sides. While doing so, make sure that you are leaving inch of hem allowance. Then place the fabric right side down and divide it into four equal and vertical sections. Mark the sections and label the three lines (as A,B,C or 1,2,3, etc.). Again measure the lines and create "x" mark on every 8 inches on each line. Make sure you start from the bottom. Attach the curtain rings on the "x" marks that you created. You can use hand sewing method for doing so. Then, join the loop tape on the shade to the hook tape of the bottom. This will help you to hang the shades. Lastly, place closing hook on each bottom ring of each row. Now, lift the hooks so that they catch the rings next to them. Repeat the same with the rest of the rows of the rings and you are done!
You can choose from plenty of choices available for flexible transverse curtain tracks. Many companies sell these curtain tracks in rolls or foot or as a single wide track. The minimum radius is 12" and the metal tacks come on standard, medium duty and heavy-duty types. These types are made specifically according to the type of bay window curtain ideas to be hung that is, light, medium weighted and heavy weighted curtain.
