For people looking for cheap options, rod pocket panels are good. You can add a "topper" according to the overall design style of your living room. These are some off the rack inexpensive options for your living room area, but if you really want a unique curtain style for your room, choose custom tailored curtains. You have to be creative; you can add colour and design of your choice to give your room the look you feel it deserves and according to your mood. These custom tailored curtains can be cheap or expensive; depends on the fabric and design you would choose.
To test the curtains for how much light gets through them, it is as simple as taking a bright pocket torch along with you to a designer curtain fabric showroom or when testing samples you have ordered from an online store. By shining the bright torch through the fabric, you will be able to get a better sense of how opaque it really is.
Goblet pleated curtains as the name suggests have tubular foam or metal fasteners which create a goblet effect at the same regular intervals as the French pleated curtains. These fastenings or foam tubes should be kept in place when the curtain is hanging, but removed for cleaning. Like French pleated curtains goblet pleated curtains create a very sophisticated heading and hang to the curtains and trims either buttons, tassels or braid can be added for that finishing touch.
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.
