Different Styles of Curtains

Curtain is one of the most important parts of our house interior including bedrooms. Even if we only have a little space to use; we still can use the right kind of curtain to make it looks elegance. Especially for kind of room which use a lot of furniture in it, choosing the right kind of curtain also can make your room looks comfort and neat.

I’ve been browsing around to find different kind of Curtain available. I found many colorful styles curtains or maybe different shades and so on. I also found unique styles using many kinds of drapery. The price is depends on the materials and the style of curtains we like. So make sure that you choose one that meets your budget.

One thing we need to fully understand when we try to find the right measures for our curtain’s materials is the size of our window. So that we can have the right size for the materials we’re going to use for the Curtain. Make sure the material is enough to cover the entire window. And don’t be oversize because it will look tacky.

We also need to know the length of the window rail that we used to hang the curtain. How to measure it? To determine the right size is we must put the measure-tool about 7.5 – 12.5 cm beyond the pelmet. And we must add about 15 cm in each side left and right; so that we have enough room for the folded Curtain beside the window when we open the curtain to let the sunshine in freely into our room.

To measure the size of curtain; we can measure the window’s rail first than divide the result (if we like to use two sheets of curtain in a window) than add about 10-15 cm for the hems in each side.

There are different options we can choose to determine the length of our curtain in the window.
First, the Curtain length is as high as the pelmet. The down side of curtain will be about 1 cm from the pelmet so that much easier to open.
Second, the curtain length is about 10-15 cm under the pelmet.
Third, the curtain is touching the floor surface.
Start the measurement from the rail’s ring down to the lowest limit of the curtain we choose. We need to add about 15 cm each to prevent if only we need to repair some parts in the next day.

The most interesting part in the design of curtain is the top. And for this we need to add more materials about 1.5 up to 2 times the curtain’s wide; so that the curtain will look nice and full.

• For ’pencil pleat’ style, we need to add more materials about 2.5-3 times the default wide measurement.

• For ’triple pleat’ style, we need to add about 2-3 times the default wide measurement.

• For ’box pleat’ style, we must add the materials 3 times the default measurement.

• For ’goblet’ style, we need to add the materials about 2 times the default wide.

• For ’smocked’ style like beehive, add the materials about 2 times the default wide measurement.

• For ’sheer pleat’ style, just use a sheer material about 2 times the default measurement.

Pay attention when you use the material with a certain kind of shade, especially when you want to use smock style in the center of the Curtain. You must calculate the range between each shade, just in case you need to add more material for your curtain. For preventions, you should add one more column of shades in every side as an extra.
