Don't get scared off and quit yet ' this is all easier than you might be thinking. You'll probably just know what rod is right when you see it. After all, it will probably catch your eye because it's your style. So hang in there 'cause now's the fun part: shopping!
Vinyl mini blinds were discovered in the 80s. With time, they became easier to use and offered a good variety for a reasonable price. These blinds are the best option if you are planning to install them in waterfront homes and in humid areas like kitchens and bathrooms. Their best feature is their splines which prove to be very useful to block sunlight out and provide privacy. They are unbreakable, easy for installation and safe from sun-bleaching. The only drawback is that they are not very insulating. Vinyl blinds are made up of shiny hard plastic that makes them more durable and easy to clean.
Swing arm curtain rods are very handy when used for French doors, large or small windows in a house, caf style windows, etc. The rod is mounted on either the inside of a window frame or on a wall adjacent to a window. This type of a setup makes it convenient to swing rather than sliding it every single time along the rod.
This is not an unattainable task if you have the fabric ready at home. Knowing how to sew curtains will help you to easily fix the grommet rings to the curtains and then hang it. You can purchase the kit for making grommet curtains from any upholstery shop. They will provide you the correct size for the rings and the rod, that has to be passed through it. The steps are explained in the following segment. First take the measurement of the curtain rod and the ring so that they complement each other. Buy the kit accordingly, or else you can purchase the materials separately and then assemble them. Decide how many rings you will require for fixing on the drape. The density of the pleats will depend on the spacing of the rings. If you fix the rings at least 1 inch apart from each other, then, the curtain fabric will be overlapped in a compact manner. This makes the curtain look much more voluminous. Before attaching the rings, you have to pierce holes of the same size to that of the ring on the panel of the curtain. Fold the panel and cut it in a circular fashion. Now sew the sides by hemming it. This forms the attachment zone of the grommet rings. If you have purchased a kit, you will get the punching tool for fixing the rings along with it. Read the instructions mentioned on the label and then start the process. The rings are double layered and you can start fixing according to the suggested technique. Punch it tightly so that they do not fall off, and fix it on the wrong side of the curtain. Once the holes are ready, you can easily pass the rods through it. Pleat it well so that the drapes look compact and full. Drape Designs
