How To Hang Your Window Treatments MT

By Maria Wallace

Can you remember back to a time when most windows looked alike? I'm talking about how they were all covered in draperies if they were in living rooms and bedrooms and cafe curtains if they were in kitchens. Our house was that way, and I could go to friends' homes and find the same thing. These window coverings were backdrops against the scenery displayed in the room. We've come a long way since then, though, and people seek much more individuality than they used to. The heavy draperies are being replaced by many different types of window treatments MT.

Always wash hands thoroughly. It's very easy to forget, but after you have been handling dirty tools when fitting your pole, it is all too easy to put dirty hands on your clean, fresh new fabric. Check curtains before hanging. Remove from their packaging and lay them out on a clean, flat surface. Check that both curtains match regarding pattern and color, check the stitching of the curtains and check the size of the curtains. Nobody wants to spend time carefully hanging their curtains to stand back and see that one is longer than the other!

The main difference between the two is that curtains are stationary, whereas shutter draperies can move back and forth through the rod. Drapes can be opened to allow light to enter the room and can be closed for privacy purposes. Curtains, on the other hand, can also be opened but the process is done so by gathering the fabric to the sides and secure with tassels or ties.

Choosing the colors for your shutter treatments can also make them truly unique. You'll want to go with colors that are currently popular because you don't want your look to be outdated as soon as you've hung the shutter treatments on the wall. Right now, terra cotta is a very popular color. Pair it with greens, blacks, and golds, and your room will look very up to date.

Cornices look much like valances, except that these are made with a different material. These are also meant to adorn the tops of shutters. Cornices are made of a board that is covered in fabric. They sufficiently do the job of framing the shutter. If you wish to acquire a softer and more regal look with your cornices, you can simply add more fabric as padding to lessen stiffness.

Count how many hooks you will need. It is advised that curtain hooks are placed in a minimum of one out of every five slots in the heading tape including one at either end. So count how many you need and make sure the exact amount is on your pole or track.

With these descriptions in mind, browsing through shutter treatments stores will be a breeze. It won't be long before you end up with your custom shutter treatment that suits your shutters perfectly.

Cords are also applied for easy installation without having to open your wall with nails. If you not like the idea of fixing the shutter designs you bought yourself, then an installer will be at your place to do it for you.
