If you, like me, love to spread out in your sofa and watch TV in the utmost comfort of your jammies, then you can't let the outside world have a glimpse into your personal space. You need good quality curtains to lend you privacy inside the four walls of your home. Curtains have become the need of the hour in this space-crunched neighborhoods. Somehow the store-bought curtains fail to add the right color to your room or just end up being too short for your windows. That means, your hard-earned money is down the drain. Draping the windows and doors of your home is an important feature of home decor. That's why, you should buy curtain fabrics and make drapes for the windows yourself. Yes, sewing curtains is not only easy, it's also fun! Moreover, you save some moolah too. So, it's time to dust off your sewing machine and put your rusty sewing skills to good use. If you are worrying that you have forgotten about sewing, then you can practice on an old cloth before trying your hand at the real thing. After mustering enough confidence in your ability to tailor, now you must find out what kind of fabric you want to drape your windows.
1. Choose a Fabric Buy a fabric of your choice to make eyelet curtains. Depending on the room for which it is, choose a color and fabric, there are also many interesting curtain patterns. It is always better to go in for a lightweight or medium weight fabric, such as sheer cotton, linen, organza and lace. If the fabric is too heavy, the eyelet tape may not be able to withstand the weight of the fabric. If you want a heavy fabric in particular, then remember to take eyelets and a tape accordingly.
Vertical blinds can be of any material: wood, cloth, or aluminum. Dust can't be prominently noticed on them unlike in case of horizontal blinds, but they require regular cleaning nevertheless. All the above-mentioned methods can be used to clean vertical blinds; however, the trick is to protect the windows behind and the floor below them as well. Once that is taken care of, there is absolutely no problem. Removing them and cleaning them in a bathtub is the easiest way, barring the exception of wooden blinds, which will need to be vacuum-cleaned and dusted.
