Have you ever thought about using embroidered curtains in your home? If not, you should! Linens are especially beautiful when embroidered. This extras touch brings a subtle design that will, again, make your room and home more sophisticated. We love the look of a cream colored linen framing your windows and allowing the neutral to make the color balance you need. When you add embroidery, youre calling attention to the window design without the risk of overwhelming the space. 3. Play with light and dark colors
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: measure each window in the room - they may look the same size, but they may not be!
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.
Now you have to decide the correct position for hanging the curtain and then fix the rods. Make sure the rods do not hamper movement of the window panes or the doors. The brackets need to be positioned in such a way that they will be symmetrical to the curtains once hanged. You can mark the position roughly with a pencil and ruler.
