Thin layers of sheer chiffon, voil or net curtains can be hung on one rod as a shield over the windows and thick fabric can be used as the front curtains. This type of curtain design requires further embellishments like drapery over the rod and fancy curtain accessories. These curtains are usually ceiling mounted and the length of the curtains is measured in such a way that its ends flow down on the ground.
There are several ways in which you can use your curtains. For instance - give your windows more height by placing the curtain rod a few inches above its designated spot. Buy a few extra meters of curtain material and let it trail a bit on the floor. It adds to the illusion of greater height. If you would like to bring in the sunshine, add around 45 cms more to the length of the curtain on each side of your rod. This way you can pull aside the curtain without covering the panes. This is a great way to make small windows look much bigger than they are.
Deciding on the kind of curtains you want will depend on what you want to achieve with them. If you are looking for privacy, you will need the thick sort of curtains. Or you may want to bring in the sunshine at times and at others, have your privacy. You may just want to dress up some windows that have been ignored a while. These are all factors that you will have to evaluate before you get down to buying your curtains.
One place that requires curtains is a patio door. These doors are usually made of sliding glass and require a wide curtain. They can be a problem in terms of leaking air around the seals of the doors. Some curtains provide insulating properties that some blinds, shades and shutters do not so they make a perfect replacement window treatment. Some of the curtains that are available as a patio door treatment are designer curtains. The prices of these can be somewhat more costly than other forms of curtains. Other styles of curtains are not appropriate for a patio door such as country style curtains.
