One – Type of fabric
Natural fabric – without a doubt the most environmentally friendly. Linen is perfect for these purposes, pure cotton is used much less often, but it is also perfectly used for curtains in the kitchen and even for curtains in the children’s room. Fine woolen fabric drapes beautifully and flows beautifully in waves.
Artificial silk burns out, as a result, it is less practical, if the windows face south, and the summer is very hot and sunny, then such curtains will not “live” for a long time. Now, of course, there are many different synthetic fabrics with durable color and durable in service life.
Blended fabrics are the most democratic option, where synthetic fibers are slightly added to the natural material, such as for dilution. They do not wrinkle, are durable and can be safely washed (the paint is waterproof) in a washing machine, but in principle, wherever you like.
Two – Color
It will be difficult to imagine how the pieces of fabrics displayed in the showrooms of stores, and even more so presented in catalogs (magazines) will look like. Here, the illumination and the height of the ceiling are of particular importance, the combination with other luxury items, especially with upholstered furniture, such as armchairs, pouffes, sofas are presented in different color shades, and the interior of the room also plays a significant role. If it is possible to take a piece of fabric on bail “for trying on” – then this will be considered the best option.
First of all, it depends on the room. In the bedroom and living room, the curtains must reach the floor. The fabric must be bought with a small margin, in case of shrinkage (10-15 cm).
If this window is in the nursery, then the curtains can reach the windowsill. It will be safer for the child and due to this, dust will be collected less, and washing is much easier, they will not be able to interfere with the circulation of warm air from heating radiators – in winter. The same can be said about the curtains in the kitchen, especially when they are located close to the gas stove. Curtains that are assembled into a neat roll or Roman blinds are also suitable for this kind of windows. Of course, if you recently purchased sliding gates from Veka-Stroy, then you want to admire them all day, then you will need to adjust the length.
What else is needed for curtains
For some types of fabrics, a gasket is required, it will not only improve the fit of the curtains, but also extend their service life. You need to pick up all kinds of accessories for curtains – ribbons, fringes, tassels, cords, all this should match the shade and style of the curtains.
