Christabel Daniella Curtains, June 18th , 2017. Hanging outdoor curtains for patio can transform the space in a matter of minutes. Not only is this a great way of adding a design element to the space but it also allows the owners some privacy from people gazing in. While you could easily buy curtains to match you space, making your own patio curtains can bring a certain sense of satisfaction. While stitching and hanging up your patio curtains, you will need quite a few things. This includes curtain rods, fabric for the curtains, scissors, sewing machine, and a measuring tape. Once you have all the things that you need, just follow the simple steps given below in order to make outdoor patio curtains. First and foremost, you need to take measurements of the patio doors to determine the length and width of the curtain rods and the fabric that you will using. To determine the length of the curtain rod, you will need to measure the width of the door or window frame. While picking out the curtain rods, ensure that the ones you pick out are rust free curtain rods. Once you have decided what fabric you will be using to make the curtains for the outdoors, you will need to take measurements. Measure both the length and the width of each curtain and add about two to three inches to the measurements for the hem and the pockets for the curtain rods. Ensure that when you are cutting the material, you multiply the measurements with the number of curtains that you need. While buying the fabric for the curtain remember to buy a variety that is not only heavy but also durable enough to withstand the elements of nature as these will be hung outside. Also try and choose fabrics that are resistant to dust, moisture, and also in a fabric that will not fade away quickly due to constant exposure to the sun. The thread that you need to use in order to make outdoor curtains should be sturdy and strong as you want it to be able to handle the wear and tear that it will undergo on a daily basis. Next comes the actual process of sewing the curtains. If you are already an amateur seamster or seamstress, then making the curtains may not be a huge task for you. In order to make the curtains, the first thing that you would want to do is to create a pocket for the rod to be put through. Once the pocket is made, you can hem the bottom of the curtain. In order to make the sewing process simpler, you could choose to fold the edges and then iron over them to create a seam line to sew on. You could also pin the fold to make it easier to sew. Making patio curtains actually needs very little sewing. Once you have sewed the curtains, all you need to do is put the curtain rods through the pocket holes that you have created and hang them up by placing them in the brackets that you have in place. You now know that making outdoor patio curtains is not a very difficult task. The only step that may take a little test may be the process of actually sewing the curtains but once you are a little more proficient with sewing, it may be a task that is nothing more than a quick weekend project which can completely transform the way your patio looks.

There are sure to be a lot more ideas that you can think of. Do share them with us, we'd love to hear them. So go ahead and decorate the exterior of your home with as much passion and creativity as you would decorate the interiors! If you have shifted to a new house and it has some very small, less than the regular sized windows, it can be quite a challenge finding appropriate curtains to cover them with. As it is the curtains which lend a kind of a character to the windows, making them look appealing and attractive, it is very important that you choose the best ones! When it come to small windows, you should always look for curtains which are simple and functional. If you choose some very heavy and decorative curtains, they will look very overwhelming and may seem out of place too. Steer clear of loud designs too, as they can make the window appear smaller than it actually is. The below given ideas for small windows will further help you out in choosing the right drapes, which will give it the perfect shape and look. When choosing curtain designs for small windows, always go in for vertical patterns. Vertical patterns on the curtains, will lend length to your windows. As for the cloth, go in for the sheers, as they help the light pass through and enter the room, much more than any other cloth. To further add on to the length of the windows, let the sheer curtains fall, almost to the floor (just about two inches above so that they do not get dirty and you end up washing them again and again!) This will give the illusion that your windows stretch to the floors, thus making them appear much taller than they actually are! One drawback of hanging sheer curtains is that they do not offer privacy. So, to take care of this problem, get a two layered curtain for your window. Above the sheers, have some colored curtains installed. You can tie them back with sashes in the mornings and leave only the sheers on, to allow the sunlight enter your room. During the night, you can leave the colored curtains on, to maintain your privacy! If the window is wide but its length is short i.e. it is not very tall, to add an illusion of length to it, place your curtain rod, just below the ceiling, instead of immediately where the window starts from, as is done with regular sized windows. Now, when you hang curtains on the rod, it will seem as if the window starts from below the ceiling, thus adding a few inches to its height! If the window has a sill underneath it, then obviously, you can not hang the curtain till the floor, as it will hide its architectural beauty. In such a case, one of the useful curtain solutions is to place the rod just below the ceiling and hang a valance from it, that reaches to the top of the window. From there, hang curtains of your choice, which end at the sill. This two layered look, will lend its own charm to the interiors of your room and no one will even notice the short length of your window! For windows which are narrow in width, extending the rod about three to five inches, on either side, and then hanging the curtains on them, will lend an illusion of width, thus making the windows appear much broader than they are! To make the windows look a bit more wider and interesting, a good idea is to hang sheers in the middle and colored, slightly thick curtains on the sides. This way, you will get a twin colored look for your windows, plus the sheers will offer the much-needed light in the room and the colored curtains, the privacy that you need! Make your window look arty, by hanging an embroidered cloth over it as a curtain. You can make use of any cloth piece which has some unique designs on it, for this purpose! Or hang roman shades, which match with your room decor, as they will conceal the window completely and thus, none of your guests would be able to make out its short length! It's not just the curtains, you can play around with the curtain rings and the finials and draw attention away from the length and width of your window. So, get some artistic finials as well as large rings to hang your curtains on, cause this way, people would be more drawn to look at them, rather than the size or shape of your window! As you can see, there are so many innovative curtain ideas for small windows that you can utilize, to make them look stunning. Choose any of these or come up with a few of your own, to transform your small windows into decorative and creative focal points of your room! The right window treatment can help you create any interior dcor look that you want in your home. Most people have a clear idea about the kind of window treatment they want in their living room and bedroom, but are stumped when it comes to kitchens and bathrooms. Leaving the kitchen window bare is not a desirable option, but regular floor length curtains are not functional. As privacy is not an issue in a kitchen, you can opt for cafe curtains that cover the bottom half of the window. These type of window treatments are modern and give your kitchen dcor some flair. Cafe curtains for kitchen can be found in any home furnishing store and they are available in different materials and styles. However, they can be a bit on the expensive side. So the best thing to do would be to make your own cafe curtains. Making your own cafe curtains also helps you to customize them according to your will. Even if you are a novice at sewing, you can make them easily as they do not require advanced sewing skills. You can experiment with different styles of cafe curtains from the frilly floral ones to the light sheer ones. Light weight cotton, patterned silk, muslin and sheers are ideal fabrics for making cafe curtains.

Sela Anamarija Curtains, June 20th , 2017. If you think using tinted windows or window films can protect your home from the sun's heat and glare, think again! Tinted glass or window films do not stop the sun's rays from reaching the glass, and once the rays come in contact with the glass, they immediately start radiating heat inside the house. This makes tinted glass or window films totally ineffective against heat and light. The only solution is to use solar window screens. These screens use a specially created screen mesh that deflects most of the sun's high-energy UV rays before they even reach the windowpane. Some of the heat is also absorbed by the screen, while a large extent of it is dissipated to the surrounding atmosphere outside the window. Thus, these windows cut down the heat and sun-rays entering the house or building.
Mireille Felicia Curtains, June 19th , 2017. The top-down feature is another factor which makes cellular shades better than the usual kind. You can lower the shade so that the light can come in, while still maintaining your privacy. And, of course, there's the bottom-up feature to raise the blinds from the bottom. The cordless feature is another option for extra safety. This technique does not require a lift cord, just a touch of the finger is enough to raise or lower the blind. For windows that are hard to reach, you can add a remote-controlled sensor on each shade. With the help of the remote, you can control the shades from a distance of 20 to 30 feet away, and raise or lower them as you see fit.
