Lehua Kyllikki. Curtains. September 26th , 2016.
Nobody likes to pay retail when you can get something for a well-discounted price. However much you like a particular curtain print or style, looking at its exorbitant price might make you think twice about buying it. However, it is very much possible to get these drapes for a lesser cost. The trick is to know when and where to get them from. There are many materials like rich velvets, luxurious raw silk, taffeta, jacquard, satins, lace, and embroidered drapery fabric that cost a lot. And if it is a designer fabric at that, it will cost even more because of its unique print and design.
If you try to repair the head rail on your own, it is possible that the warranty may get invalidated. Therefore, you should touch the head rail for any kind of repair only when the warranty period is over. The only component of the head rail that can be repaired at home is the chain. You can remove the old, damaged chain with a new one. Firstly, remove all the vanes one by one from the chain. When you are taking the chain out of the head rail, check out how it was set with the horizontal bar. This will make installation of new chain easier. Once you have put the chain into its place, you have to attach all the vanes in the same alignment. For repairing any other component like the veins of the head rail, you should hire a professional as those tasks require a very skilled pair of hands.
You probably know this one. To get a modern home atmosphere, the best thing when it comes to curtain rods is to choose stainless steel rod. This is the best you can get for a modern cafe curtain style. Some other rods would also come in handy, like your old plastic shower curtain or even an old umbrella. That's more funky, but lots of people find it cute and see it way better then stainless steel.
The material you select for your window curtains will depend upon the upholstery of your furniture and the color of the walls. You also need to decide whether you want a thick material to block out sunlight or a lighter material that will let sunlight filter through. If you want to your curtain to be made of silk, make sure that you line it with cotton and interline it with flannel. If you don't do this, the sunlight will fade your silk and you will have to keep replacing your curtains often.
