Do-it-Yourself Take measurements of your window or door where the curtain should be placed with a measuring tape. Cut the fabric to the desired length and breadth. Leave two to four inches for the curtain pocket or few inches for extra finished hem as per your choice. Now take a fusible tape and spread it all over the fabric. Make sure the fabric is left free for about two to four inches from the top for easy hanging of the curtain. Take the remaining fabric from above the tape, fold it, and attach to the tape. Now place the curtain on an ironing board and iron it to smoothen the crease. Now you can hang the curtain on a rod. Some More Ideas You can make the curtain and clip it on the hanging rod with the help of clip rings. Attach buttons at the top and lock them with the hanging rod. Thread a fine wire or ribbon and connect them to the loops of the curtain. The buttons give a good support to the curtain. Buy grommet kits from fabric stores and slip them over wall hooks. Attach with the curtain lops and hang it. It looks very simple and sophisticated. Make long loops with beaded links. Cut equal lengths of a cord, tie it with grommets and hide the knot from behind. Buy matching rayon coils and poke a hole through the top of the curtain. Now tie this with the wall hooks. For gorgeous satin silk curtains, you need some extra fabric. Create a channel at the top of the fabric. Thread a narrow pole through it. The extra fabric creates case of pleats that look gorgeous. Punch an eyelet and thread a wire through it and hang the curtain. Eyelet kits are available in the market. Bondaweb curtains with bundles of pleats and embellishments look rather chic. If you know the art of embroidery, just design yourself. Fabric
Window blinds, just like curtains, serve the purpose of covering windows. Blinds are meant to block the flow of sunlight from outside or hide the outside view from the room. They are reasonably priced and hence, not heavy on the pocket. Blinds that are used for windows are available in many different types, such as venetian blinds that are made of curved metal slats, faux or PVC blinds made of polyvinyl chloride plastic, composite blinds that are a combination of wood and polymers, and wood blinds made of real wood. A brief description of these types is given below:
How will your rods be hung ' inside or outside the window frame? For outside the frame ' on the wall: the idea here is usually to cover the window completely. Measure 2-5" out from each side of the window trim. The total curtain rod length should be about 12" longer than your window width. And don't be fooled:
