The Best Types of Fabrics for Curtains
With so much variety of curtain fabrics, how can you be sure that you will make the right choice for your room? Different fabrics are ideal for different rooms. For example, polyester curtains work well in bedrooms, but are not suitable for kitchens, because their material is flammable and absorbs odors. Linen, on the other hand, is a great choice for kitchen curtains. Learn more about curtain fabric here.

Where Will the Curtain Hang? On Curtain Rod or Railroad?
Curtain Hanging on Curtain Rod
To hang curtains on curtain rod we have 2 options:
1. On the Curtain Rod
When we decide to order a curtain that will hang on the curtain rod, we must keep in mind that its cost will be higher. In this case, ready-made curtains are excluded, which are mass-produced and in specific dimensions, mainly from China.
Why Is the Curtain Seam With Trunks Expensive and What Are the Alternatives?
The quality of the materials and the intricate and handmade work make the difference in their price. The alternative to the curtain rod is the tunnel, where we pass the curtain rod through the top of the curtain. An even more economical solution, which reduces costs by half, is the straps.
The fringe is always 1/2 and does not allow the curtain to be stretched on the curtain rod. If you notice that the curtain rod is thick enough, contact a specialist to let you know if it is better to put rings on the curtain rod.
2. On Hooks (Rings)
If we want our curtain to move easily on the curtain rod, we must choose the rings.
Curtain Hang on Rail
Rail hanging is a practical solution suitable for indoor use. We hang the curtain in pleat tape, with a choice of 3 levels of height. In a children’s room where children are accustomed to playing and pulling the curtains, repositioning them on the rail will be a daily chore, as the hooks can be easily removed.
Curtains for Every Season
For the Winter
For better insulation from the cold of winter, you can hang “heavy” curtains from thick materials, such as fabric, velvet, and chenille. This way you will block the cold air between your curtains and windows.
For spring and summer, thin gauze, cotton, and linen curtains are ideal, as they allow air and light to pass inside. In case the excessive light in summer or spring is disturbing for sleep, you can also use blackout curtains.
