Once you know what kind of room you have and whether a lighter or heavier window treatment will look better, then you can move on to choosing colours and patterns. Some people choose to match their curtains to a sofa that they have in the room. This is a great idea for rooms that do not contain much colour. However, if the room is papered and the sofa is a dark colour or bold pattern, then this is not such a good idea. The blinds or other coverings should not be the focal point of a room. In general, the smaller the room the smaller the window coverings should be.
There are various patterns, variety, colors and sizes made available for you. If at all, you do not find a suitable one for your window, you can get it stitched. 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. I am sure this article must have proved to be of help for choosing curtains for French doors. 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. If the curtains perfectly match the outlook of the room, it will add to the homeliness of the house in general.
Do you want your curtain rod exposed or hidden by the curtains? If it's exposed it should match the room's style and d'cor, so look around the room to figure that out. (A lot of you don't have to do that; you just know your style. But there are others'.)
