Curtains - a simple and integral part of almost any interior. In addition to the main protective function of sunlight, they perform aesthetic tasks. With the help of perfectly selected curtains, your house or apartment can change many times and become an island of comfort and harmony in the stone jungle of the modern metropolis.
Eaves are ceiling and wall. Ceiling cornice for curtains visually increases the space, so it is recommended for rooms with a low ceiling and a small area. This option will look great in a small bedroom, children's room or miniature kitchen. Wall cornice can be installed in a room with large full-wall windows.
There are several options for how to hang a ceiling cornice. If you intend to use tulle and curtains made of light fabrics (organza, cotton, synthetics), then you can fasten it with the help of dowels-butterflies. For dense heavy fabrics it is better to use more durable materials.
There are several types of fasteners for curtains. Some fasten only on certain eaves, others are more universal. Interior designers most often advise choosing the following fixtures:
- Rings. Used together with metal or wooden eaves. In this case, the curtains are mounted on the rings and put on the eaves. They are easy to take off and put on, which is important if you want to remove and wash the curtains.
- Eyelets. Curtains on the eaves fit with eyelets. Here the rings are inside the fabric. They are located at the same distance from each other. Thanks to them, beautiful symmetrical folds are formed.
- Hooks. Convenient and beautiful option. The hook clings to a special notch in the fabric and is attached to the eaves. Hooks are placed on a special tape made of synthetic fabric. Curtains on a tape look very stylish and fit into any interior.
- Clamps. Clips help adjust the length of the curtains. Also with their help, you can create additional folds and flounces.
It is necessary to approach the choice of fastening with all responsibility. Since curtains, for example, with grommets, it will be difficult to change them for hooks or clips.
