At Dallison and Sons we are passionate about window decoration. We take personal pride in Custom Making Solutions to solve even the most difficult problems. To ensure that your window decorating ideas are successfully transformed into reality, custom making is the answer.
Ready made curtains represent the cheaper option for many homeowners, as they are prefabricated they will typically cost much less than custom made varieties. Subsequently they can be considered an excellent choice, particularly if you are kitting out the entire property.
When buying ready made curtains it is important to consider how the curtains are to function and in which room they are going to be placed. For example, heavy blackout fabrics are typically perfect for bedrooms where it is important to have a darkened room. In contrast, other rooms in the home such as the kitchen will naturally have different requirements when it comes to making a decision on window coverings.
It is also worthwhile considering how you are going to hang your curtains. In most cases this will be performed using either a pole or a rail. Curtain poles come in a plethora of different styles and designs making it easy to find a pole that suits your own personal taste. For example wooden poles will provide a classical look whereas metallic poles a far more contemporary style. Rails on the other hand are designed so that they are invisible when the curtains are closed; as such design is less important although you may want to invest in a valance to cover the rail whilst the curtains are open.
When you are buying ready made curtains it is essential to measure your windows precisely. If you fail to do this you may end up with curtains that are either too short or do not hang well. The length of curtains is vitally important. Off the shelf options typically come in generic sizes providing a curtain that will either sit just below the window frame or reach the floor. If you have irregularly shaped windows however, it can be difficult to find curtain sizes off the shelf that will fit properly.
Once you have decided upon the size of the curtain it is important to look at its style and color. In most cases you want the window dressings to complement the existing or planned decor. As such any patterns or colors should be uniform or at least match up with soft furnishings and other decorative features.
