While there are always those intrepid souls who like the DYI trend of today and are determined to do everything themselves, the rest of the world's home owners would rather tackle something that isn't quite as complex for the most part. That is why there are professional curtain and blind fitters available to take on this task and make it look easy. With all the measuring and checking to make sure of width and length for blinds and curtains as well as checking for level to make sure everything is straight side-to-side, this job can get complex fast when there are lots of windows to deal with in the home.
In addition to money and time savings, you will gain a valuable asset with advice and insight on curtain and blind fitting who can help you decide on the right thing to do if there are challenges with the project. They are well aware of the different brands and styles of curtains and blinds available and if you are dithering between one or the other, your Myfitter expert will be able to offer guidance on points you might not know anything about in order to help you make a decision that you will live with for some time to come.
Proportion and Balance - Take into account issues such as size, shape and visual weight. A lightweight set of curtains in a dark color, for example, can appear to be very heavy. And beautifully pleated drapes can come off as “just not enough” if they fit too tightly to the windows. Seeing your room as blocks of color will help to provide balance and proportion.
While sewing your curtains make sure that they are not too long-they should just clear the ground. Although long, flowing curtains are beautiful to look at, the extra length will pick up dust and will need cleaning often. Fabrics differ so be sure to check if your choice drapes well. Hold it up against light to be sure the weight doesn't distort the fabric. If you are picking up a curtain with either printed or woven patterns on it, take care while sewing. These patterns will be repeated at regular intervals and you must start your hem at the same place for every cut. While buying material for your window curtains you will usually have two widths to choose from: 54 inches and between 110 and 118 inches wide. The latter is used if you decide not to line your fabric and don't want your curtains to have seams.
Today you have the option of buying a pre-packaged curtain rod set with all the parts and pieces you need. That can save you time and energy, and easily meet your window covering needs.
