Horizontal blinds are not commonly used for doors as there are certain difficulties related to it. Firstly, when these blinds roll up horizontally, they can stack at the top of the door and come in the pathway. However, this is not a problem if the doors are high enough. Secondly, cords of the horizontal blinds are longer in length and can stack in the doorway. Both these features can be bothersome. Apart from it, there are hardly any other disadvantages of using these blinds. When used for bringing light or sunlight into the room, horizontal blinds are more convenient than the vertical ones. If you wish to have horizontal blinds, then you can also consider going for Roman shades. Horizontal blinds are available from $10 and above; with those made of faux wood priced at $100 onwards.
If a traditional home look is what you want, the brass rods with finial will be great for you. Or you can use spring loaded rods for that matter, it all depends on your personal taste. Brass rod is usually hanged by small brackets, which someone find cute, but you must know that they will be visible on your window frame. So if you don't like that, skip it. Choose spring loaded rods because they will fit on your window frame without being visible. The pocket on your cafe curtain will make sure of that.
For cleaning greasy aluminum window blinds, use ammonia mixed with water. They can also be cleaned by placing in a hot bath with a little detergent, or by using a mixture of baking soda and water. If they are made out of a different material, say cloth, then remove them and put them on a towel. Use water and mild detergent mix as a cleaning product. Dip a baby toothbrush in the water mixture and softly brush them. Make sure that the brush does not become too greasy, otherwise it will soil the blinds instead of cleaning them.
6. Measurements for Eyelets At the top of the fabric, measure about 3 inches from the side and mark with a pin. Then mark 4-6 inches from the first pin and place another pin, continue along the entire width of the curtain. At the end, you should still have some fabric left. The distance between two eyelets can be decided depending on the look you want. This can be done using a template that comes with the eyelet set.
