The use of curtains remains widely popular for decorative and practical purposes. The basic definition of a curtain is simply a piece of material suspended from above used as a covering or screen that is often one of a pair. The more practical uses of curtains include blocking any type of light, blocking drafts around windows or doors, or blocking water. There is also a stage curtain that goes up when a show begins and this covers the stage during breaks or at the ending of a show. Many people spend a great deal of time to choose curtains that serve either practical and decorative purposes or decorative purposes alone.
Earlier curtains were only used to cover the windows and to stop the wind or bright sunny rays from entering the rooms. Nowadays, the curtains have become an important part of your interior decor and they are especially designed or picked from the upholstery to match the interior theme. If you want some wonderful curtains to decorate your windows, then you should choose from the latest grommet drapes that look simply adorable on all types of windows. Over the years, the popularity of these curtains has grown immensely because they are versatile and can convert a dull looking room into a modern and bright one.
Curtains and draperies are essential window treatment features that can transform the entire look and feel of any room, if done in a tasteful manner. Even though curtains are primarily used to block light and sound, they act as a fine home decorative item. Choosing the right type of window curtain includes fine selection of color, fabric, curtain rods, curtain length etc. Curtains can enhance the personality and look of any home décor if all the parameters are chosen aesthetically. Rooms can reflect modern, elegant or cool ambiance depending on the type of curtains selected. Deciding on the right curtain length for your room is crucial since it plays a key role in offering the room the right character.
The most popular curtains have a pencil pleat heading usually with a 7.5 cm wide heading tape with three rows of woven pockets that allows for adjustment in height when hung. The heading tape has three draw cords running the length of the tape. The cords are pulled up to create the pencil pleat effect and should be knotted at both ends before gathering the tape. A more softly gathered look will be achieved if the cords are pulled less. Ideally, the cords should never be cut, as it is necessary to untie them and flatten out the gathers for cleaning.
