Curtain Styles

Curtain with Valance

A valance attached with a curtain enhances the look and appearance of the curtain. Many valance designs are also available such as pleated valance, ruffled valance, and plain valance. If you are using a single valance on the top of the double panel curtains, tie backs or hold backs should be attached to open and close the curtain. Valance may be of same color or in contrast with the curtain.

Swag and Jabot Style

Swag and jabot style is a perfect choice for all types of rooms. The number of swags depends upon the width of the window. Single, double, three and more swags may be used. Stylish and decorative hardware such as poles (rods), rings, tiebacks give you an option to make up swags and jabots in a variety of styles.

Tab Top Style


For making the window a focal point, tab top style curtains are the best options which are suitable as well as decorative. These curtains are very easy to attach with the poles.
 

Pinch pleat style

Pinch pleat curtains are very functional for all the rooms. These curtains are durable, control the light and provide privacy. Pleats are spaced at intervals so that the curtains present a manageable look.  Four to six inches fabric is required for one pleat. These are very easy to close and open.

Lining Style

Curtains with lining remain for a longer time. Lining protects the curtain from direct sun light. The fabrics used are more prone to shrinkage, so dry cleaning is suggested for these curtains. Thermal lining curtains are helpful in keeping the room warm and may be used in the common room.

Unlined Style

Unlined curtains are most traditional yet most adaptable as any kind of fabric may be used either in light weight or in heavy weight. They are easily washable and suitable for moist places like kitchens and bathrooms.

Grommet Top Style

Grommet top curtains are very much similar to the tab top curtains. Metal grommets or eyelets are attached to the head of the curtain at equal distance. These eyelets are pressed into the fabric and attached to a pole with the help of hooks. Eyelets may be of plastic, metal and wood.

No-sew Style

Neither needle nor any thread is needed for this type of curtain. A bonding web, a hot iron, a damp cloth and curtain clips are required for no-sew curtains. Unlined or light weight fabric should be used for these curtains. Make a double border at the top of the curtain, apply the clip with the border and hang it with a pole or a curtain wire.
