Curtain Style / February 8, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
The first step to take when measuring for curtains is to start by measuring the width of the curtain pole or track this will then determine how long you would like your curtains to be. A curtain pole is a good indicator as to where the curtains will finish either at the seal length below the seal or touching right down to the floor we recommend as a rough guide that the curtains should finish 1.5 cm above the sale. If you would like your curtains to fall below the seal we recommend that they finished 15 cm below that if you want your curtains to flow from top to bottom from the rod to the floor we would then recommend a gap of 1.5 cm above the floor.
You can find cotton blackout curtains in some nice contemporary styles that are suitable for both boys and girls. There are fancier yet affordable options such as faux silk blackout curtains. These curtains are more suitable for young girls and teens. You can also find some blackout roman shade curtains that will fit inside of the window itself for a neat appearance.
Once the tracking layout is finalized, then determine the number of carriers or rollers needed. Carriers are just that, they carry the curtain along the tracking. The standard style consists of a nylon block and wheels with a swiveling chain and hook attached. A breakaway version is available which acts contrary to its name; the carrier does not break, it flexes. This allows the curtain to detach from the carrier rather than damage the curtain or carrier. Curtain carriers should be spaced every 6" on the curtain. If your curtain is 242" in length, you will want to have 41 carriers.
Curtains are easy to hang - Want to change your curtains? Simply unhook them from your curtain pole, attach the hooks to your new curtains and away you go. Replacing vertical blinds can involve unhooking each blind from the next, unclipping each one carefully (the plastic is easy to snap), and then going through the whole rigmarole in reverse to put them back up. Other blinds must be removed all in one, making it easy to damage them as they are taken down or put back up.
