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.
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.
Although many people think of choosing curtains based on their design and colours first and foremost, this is actually the last thing that you should really be considering for the room that you will be sleeping in. This is because the curtains you choose will drastically affect your comfort when using the room.
One of the key points here is that your curtains will actually need to be thick and heavy enough in order to block out the light that comes from the exterior of your property during the night. Although this is obviously less of a consideration for those who live rurally with very little outside light, this is important for those living in bright, built-up areas.
