Curtain & Sheers : Curtains can be used to give a room a focal point. There are at least twenty different styles of curtains and draperies which can be used in window treatment.
Flat panel curtains are simple and versatile: to make them, pieces of fabric are hemmed on all four edges and the final rectangular or square piece is hung from curtains poles with clip-on rings or something similar. If pleated, the look is strongly influenced by the fullness of the pleats.
Tab top curtains are made with narrow straps, that loop or tie at the top edge and hung from the curtain pole. This curtain style is often designed as two stationary panels at the sides of a window.
Grommet curtains are hung by threading the curtain pole through a hole in the top of the fabric. This could be either a cut-out hole with the edges finished by a row of stitching or it could use a grommet to prevent fraying.
Sash curtains are used to cover the lower sash of the windows.
Rod pocket curtains have a channel sewn into the top of the fabric. A curtain rod is passed through the channel to hang.
Thermal or Blackout curtains use very tightly woven fabric, usually in multiple layers. They not only block out the light, but can also serve as an acoustic or thermal dampener.
