Curtains which are known as drapes in the USA are what we use to block out light and preying eyes from looking into our homes. Net curtains help control the ambiance and flow of natural light into a room and when chosen correctly can finish off the decor of a room beautifully. Also known as sheer curtains, they are made from translucent fabric too allow a lot of light into a room and also a basic level of UV protection while also maintaining maximum visibility through the curtains.
The tab-top curtain is basic and casual in nature. It is constructed with flat loops of the same material consistently placed along the top of the curtain. The curtain is hung by sliding the loops over a curtain rod without the need for rings and the curtain can open and close without the need of a pull cord.
The valance is a curtain that is used often to cover up rods or other hardware. There are various types of valances such as the waterfall valance, the ascot valance, or an Austrian valance. The type depends on the wanted appearance of the valance to be boxy or to drape across other hanging curtains. They are hung with an additional small rod to cover existing hanging curtains or hung with a bracket that is often attached to a more boxy style valance that surrounds an existing rod with drapes. Valances can also be hung alone above a window for decorative purposes.
You could also choose from either curtain tracks or curtain poles to fit your curtains. Curtain tracks offer ease of closing curtains, without them getting all wrinkly or overly pushed to the end of the track. However, curtain tracks are better suited for modern homes. If you have a taste for anything of the old country or prefer your room to be more of woodwork, try looking for chrome-coated or wooden poles that have beautiful that have rounded, decorative ends. Curtain poles are practical if you prefer not to open and close curtains frequently. Curtain poles look better if the curtains are closed, as the point of emphasis then are its ends.
