Blinds are commonly found in businesses and most commercial based properties. Blinds are known to look a little more professional and lower maintenance compared to curtains. Curtains can often be a lot of money, whereas blinds tend to be more affordable, which won't have the same royal appearance as curtains, but are completely customisable like curtains. Blinds can add the same décor affect to your home, but your window treatments will no longer be the focal point, rather than subtly blends into your home. Available in a host of different colours, shapes, materials and styles, it is important to get the right choice for your window blinds.
Back to that question: how do you know whether to pick visible or invisible? Let's ask another question first: what kind of window coverings are you using? Like we said, some curtains require the invisible rod called a traverse rod. Pleated drapes are made to attach to hooks that hang from this curtain rod and open-and-close by pulling the cord hanging down one side. So if you've got pleated draperies you've already got your answer: use the traverse curtain rod.
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.
Do you want your curtain rod exposed or hidden by the curtains? If it's exposed it should match the room's style and d'(c)cor, so look around the room to figure that out. (A lot of you don't have to do that; you just know your style. But there are others....)
Cafe Curtains - Modern Home: You probably know this one. To get a modern home atmosphere, the best thing when it comes to curtain rods is to choose stainless steel rod. This is the best you can get for a modern cafe curtain style. Some other rods would also come in handy, like your old plastic shower curtain or even an old umbrella. That's more funky, but lots of people find it cute and see it way better then stainless steel. You can find whatever you like to make an interesting cafe curtain. Remember, there are no limits. Only you know what it feels right and looks good on your windows.
