Roll up shades or window blinds have slats that are mainly used to prevent light from entering a room. The slats are made of wood, metal, fabric or even plastic. Metal blinds are usually used for outdoors as they are weather resistant and durable. These blinds have a string or a cord which enables one to change the degree of the slats, depending on the amount of light required. Slats on these blinds can be either horizontal or vertical. Horizontal window blinds are more commonly known as Venetian blinds. The vertical roll up blinds, though not as common as horizontal ones, are easier to use and clean, and can even be used for doors.
Fabrics differ so be sure to check if your choice drapes well. Hold it up against light to be sure the weight doesn't distort the fabric.
Do-it-Yourself Take measurements of your window or door where the curtain should be placed with a measuring tape. Cut the fabric to the desired length and breadth. Leave two to four inches for the curtain pocket or few inches for extra finished hem as per your choice. Now take a fusible tape and spread it all over the fabric. Make sure the fabric is left free for about two to four inches from the top for easy hanging of the curtain. Take the remaining fabric from above the tape, fold it, and attach to the tape. Now place the curtain on an ironing board and iron it to smoothen the crease. Now you can hang the curtain on a rod. Some More Ideas You can make the curtain and clip it on the hanging rod with the help of clip rings. Attach buttons at the top and lock them with the hanging rod. Thread a fine wire or ribbon and connect them to the loops of the curtain. The buttons give a good support to the curtain. Buy grommet kits from fabric stores and slip them over wall hooks. Attach with the curtain lops and hang it. It looks very simple and sophisticated. Make long loops with beaded links. Cut equal lengths of a cord, tie it with grommets and hide the knot from behind. Buy matching rayon coils and poke a hole through the top of the curtain. Now tie this with the wall hooks. For gorgeous satin silk curtains, you need some extra fabric. Create a channel at the top of the fabric. Thread a narrow pole through it. The extra fabric creates case of pleats that look gorgeous. Punch an eyelet and thread a wire through it and hang the curtain. Eyelet kits are available in the market. Bondaweb curtains with bundles of pleats and embellishments look rather chic. If you know the art of embroidery, just design yourself. Fabric
