If you think using tinted windows or window films can protect your home from the sun's heat and glare, think again! Tinted glass or window films do not stop the sun's rays from reaching the glass, and once the rays come in contact with the glass, they immediately start radiating heat inside the house. This makes tinted glass or window films totally ineffective against heat and light. The only solution is to use solar window screens. These screens use a specially created screen mesh that deflects most of the sun's high-energy UV rays before they even reach the windowpane. Some of the heat is also absorbed by the screen, while a large extent of it is dissipated to the surrounding atmosphere outside the window. Thus, these windows cut down the heat and sun-rays entering the house or building.
Let me advice you why we believe black is so beautiful. Ever thought about why black is so fashionable with corporate ? Its a powerful color, its overpowering, its capable of giving you influence.

We shall first do the measurements required in order fit the curtains. With the help of a yardstick, draw a line across the top, bottom and sides of the area you want to cover. This forms the window, measure this across the top, bottom and sides. After measuring, note down the largest measurement. The next step is to measure the entire surface area covered by the window. Make a note of the side of the window with the longest measurement. The largest of the sides and the one noted down previously, will form the actual size of the window. Now we move on to the stitching of the curtains. You need to first purchase a fabric measuring a little more than this size to allow room for error while sewing. A hem of 5/8 inch needs to be sewed on both the sides of the curtain. Mark a hem of 1 inch on the top and bottom of the curtain. Both ends of the curtain should have a pocket. Attach the cafe rods on the lines marking the top and the bottom of the curtain. These rods should be as close as possible to the door. Remove the rods from the mounting brackets, and slide them through the top and bottom hem pockets of the curtain. Replace the rods in the brackets and then finally adjust the gathers at the top and bottom, which will complete the procedure.

Along with curtains, you can also use drapes and roll up blinds to give it that extraordinary look and feel. Make sure you select the design according to the color and design of the door.

Make sure that you take the right measurements before ordering the rod. Also, consider the curtains that you will be hanging from these rods. Regular rods are good for sheers and lightweight cottons curtains. For thick curtains and weighted draperies, opt for rods that can bear heavy load. Look for colored rods and decorative hardware hooks for installing these rods.
