When buying readymade curtains there are certain thing you need to think about, firstly, about which room they are for. The bedroom need thicker, heavier curtains to block out light, whereas the living room and the kitchen can have lighter, more decorative curtains. Lined curtains can be perfect for the bedroom, as these will make sure that your room is darkened when curtains are drawn.
As aforementioned, there is an immense variety in terms of visual appeal when it comes to cafe curtains as a choice among kitchen window curtains. How you want your kitchen to look after you install these is completely your choice. From plain old cotton to lace and embroidered fabrics, there is a great choice out there. Apart from this, such curtains are available in various prints also, such as floral and checked prints. You may even choose curtains with abstract prints and designs. A modern touch can also be added in terms of the patterns that you use to make these curtains. While the basic structure can remain the same, the way you wish to show off these curtains is completely your call. If you want a traditional and grand look, have an elaborate valance with rich fabrics to highlight the lower curtains. Otherwise, you could simply get rid of the valance altogether, and just have the lower curtains. For more modern ideas, you could have vertical blinds made of fabric in the lower portion, and eliminate the valance above. Further, you could also have long curtains (if there is enough space) to cover the window.
Now lower the blind all the way and insert the pins into the bottom rail for hold down brackets and make a pencil mark on both the sides where you plan to install the hold-down brackets.
If you have aluminum blinds, handle them carefully while cleaning. They are highly flexible, and are prone to develop bends. Wipe each slat with a damp rag, after spraying it lightly with a mild detergent solution. Hot water should not be used for this purpose. If the slats are too dirty, then remove and immerse them in lukewarm water mixed with a mild detergent. Use a soft brush or damp cloth to clean each slat. Rinse with plain water and hang out to dry, before fixing them again. The same methods can be used for vinyl and PVC blinds too.
