Taylor James Kitchen, 2018-10-16 07:42:43. When it comes to designing the modern kitchen, people typically take one of two design paths. The first path uses modern art as inspiration to create the overall look of the design. Kitchens, of course, are everywhere (any kitchen that uses an electric or gas stove and oven can technically be considered modern). But another tack for the kitchen design is to choose the latest and most recent technologically advanced kitchen appliances and features available. These features are then surrounded with decorative elements of the designer's choosing. Qualified modern designers will help you figure out a balance between the two tacks.

There are three common terms that drapery hardware professionals use when talking about the spacing of your drapery hardware treatment. Projection, clearance and return. Projection typically refers to how far the decorative hardware elements will "stick out" or project into the room from the wall. The return measurement is usually the distance the drapery must bend back to reach the wall when it's hanging from your drapery rod. And, clearance refers to the open space behind the drapery and back to the wall. Or, "how much room do I have behind the curtain to hang another rod, window blind or sheer"? You'll notice that I've qualified each term loosely, and for good reason. Depending on who you're speaking with, either a drapery maker, installer or hardware fabricator; clearance, projection and return can mean different things.

If you've looked all through the typical drapery hardware possibilities provided by Kirsch but can't find that ideal drapery rod, don't give up because customized drapery poles aren't as costly as you may think. Estate Rods are wood or metal style drapery rods that work like a traditional traverse rod but mimic a decorative rod with finials. And, a few have decorative rings just for looks. Customized Estate Rods from Kirsch can be created to your exact requirements, so you'll know you're getting exactly what you want. These tailor made rods are a wonderful option for really unconventional windows, or for heavy window treatments that may not operate smoothly on a conventional traverse Rod.

You're a newcomer to the area and have just spent a massive amount on remodeling your home but realize you're missing an important detail that you may not be able to go on without, which is buying draperies for your home. Picking out drapery for your family home takes a lot of planning, but it's planning that you shouldn't have to do on your own. When you move into a new place, it's kind of fun in a way because you get to go out and buy everything you need to make you feel right at home. You may even choose to feel more at home if you duplicate the house that you're living in now from the house you were living in before. It's hard for a lot of people to deal with change. You just may deal with it differently than other people.

If non-decorative white traverse rod, then make it 1-3/4 to 2 inches from the top. Depending on how the drapery is packaged, most likely it will have wrinkles. I recommend steaming out the wrinkles after the panels are hung. A portable hand held steamer works well and is what I use. Follow the manufactures recommendations as some fabric especially silk, cannot be steamed. Lastly, after you steam, you want to train your fabric to hang nice. Some fabric looks great out of the package, but most do not. They need a little extra work, but its worth the results. What you can do is tie the fabric. First cut 3, 4 foot long strips of plastic about 4 inches wide.
Natalie Mcdonald Draperies, 2018-08-10 07:58:43. Choosing drapery rods is just as much fun as choosing the draperies or curtains you will adorn your windows with. Drapery Rods can dress up inexpensive window treatments to create a truly elegant look and the choices are wide and varied. Whether you are making or buying your window treatments, you will need drapery hardware to attach the curtains or drapes over the windows. Whether you use a lone curtain rod or embellish the look with tie-backs and finials, there are several pieces of drapery hardware you should become familiar with. In addition, you can accent other parts of the room and your entire home with leftover drapery hardware as well. Let's look at some of the types of drapery hardware you may need to consider.

The cable television industry has continued to evolve - keeping up with our steadily growing appetite for more and better information. Recently, the popularity of HGTV and other "do-it-yourself" cable networks has fundamentally changed the way we, as homeowners, approach the care, maintenance and decoration of our homes. Instead of hiring a handy-man or interior designer, we're learning how to tackle increasingly more complex tasks ourselves - without the aid of an industry professional.

Drapes are some of the most versatile window treatments in terms of fabric choices. Fabrics may be heavier silks and satins for a more formal look, or they can be lightweight linens for a clean, soft look. Some drapes are embroidered for added detailing in decorating, while others offer simple lines for background ambiance. Curtain rods also come in a variety of styles and finishes. Rod ends can be purchased in standard wood or bronze, or to excite things, blown art glass and ceramic ends can finish off a room nicely. Drapery styles offer privacy, protection from glare, but most importantly, they bring style to a home.
Marisa Buck Draperies, 2018-08-23 16:39:02. Obviously, the colour and pattern of your draperies should never be underestimated. Most decorators will try to match some of the colours in fabrics of furniture or the carpet, or even the paint or wallpaper to the colours in the draperies. Often, we want at least one or two colours to bring a room together and your draperies are an integral component of the flow of your room. A room with dark furniture and carpets may best be served by darker coloured curtains. Alternatively, flowery curtains and drapes can add a vibrant dimension to any room that will totally change the mood.
Young Buchanan Draperies, 2018-08-19 21:12:04. Rings. Not all curtains and draperies are attached to the rod using rings. It depends on how the draperies are constructed whether or not you will need the rings. Rings can add a decorative touch though and come in a wide variety of styles. They are easily attached to the rod and the drapes and offer added stability. Rings allow the draperies to easily glide along the rod without getting stuck so for rods that may not be as smooth as others, rings can come in handy.
