It’s happened to you, if a designer curtains and Vorhänge speaks, you somehow have the feeling that this happened in a foreign language? There are so many terms which we simply do not understand as a layman.

But hesitate not afraid, they learn to understand, because so you will be able to many modern and great designer solutions.

Curtains and blinds – difference

The less formal and easier alternative called “Curtains”. I would call them that in the kitchen and the living room. They are also mostly on window height rather than full length. They are not lined also.

Café curtains

Curtains such as this one are light, airy, informal Café. Only partially cover the window, usually the upper two-thirds. This is the perfect use, if you want something simple. You can allow plenty of light and cover at the same time larger areas.

In the next example, however, we see curtains

They span the height of the whole room, formal and however striking. From the inside, they are filled mostly with super lightweight flannel. That makes not only beautiful folds the fabric, but this is also a great insulation if the panels are.

Blinds can be operational so you can open and close. They can be also stationary: in this case they do not move and are just decorative.

Now we enter the world of the top treatment

Swags and jabots represent the antithesis of curtains and drapes. You are irrevocably and unquestionably formal. The horizontal portion, which you can see in the upper part, is called “Swag” and the folded part below is the jabot.

Jabot is a term of Schneider, which the folded part is sometimes front on some tops. Often they show contrasting fabrics and it shows especially in the places where you can see the back of the fabric.

Proportions are of fundamental importance in this case.

These come mainly in use if you want to hide the accessories. They usually freely hang down from a hidden bar and can be flat, collected, slipped, or marked.

Some people use them also for purely decorative purposes, although they really don’t need it.

The only real difference here is that the cornices are usually hard and often soft. They are usually a padded Board. Sometimes it shows various forms.

If you fell in a very expensive substance, then the cornice can make cheaper its use. Because the fabric is stretched, you can see the entire pattern very well.

The curtains in this case are gathered or wrinkled. There are a number of terms and sub terms of the variants in this respect. However, if you choose a Variant, check also whether it is practical enough.

Striped curtains and blinds

There is the so-called tab-top variant in which one attaches the curtain or curtain rod through a loop. If you however want to drag them before the window in different directions, this is not a good choice.

Rod pocket

Rod Pocket is another variant, through which you can tie the fabric on the rod. It has bars, through which the rod is performed. Also the curtains hang on this.

There are also a number of fold structures. The curtains all converge at the top on a good clear width. This happens in places where the draping the hardware. Curtains and drapes show a wonderful fullness.

You can mount these hooks, rings, rods or the curtains hidden

Connect the curtains to the manual switches. “Beam” means that the curtains around the window can be drawn. Pinch pleats are the most common like this.

They will be back in the upper part, brought together, but they are otherwise covered. Here are not the so-called “finger”. Instead, the so called chalices, which are mostly inside filled with raw cotton formed. With linear or plaid fabric that looks particularly good.

There is also the so called box folds

The appropriate form is concluded at the top. You can different variations, like something caves contribute that all achieve a masculine character.

Above we see Fold in the form of pins

You know where the name comes from, or? It has to do with a series of vertical pencils. The distance between them related to the proper proportions.

This is a method by which to tie the back of the curtain. It serves different functions. Most of the time, to use them to open the window and to allow more light into the room.

Often the decision for this also with the preference for a style is

You can also opt for curtains with different length

If you select curtains, which should move not back and forth, there are two good options in this regard: ‘Puddle’ and ‘Trouser Break’

If the curtains or blinds in this manner like here before the window can be dragged, “Puddle” nor “Trouser Break” are correct. Because you want it certainly not that they collect every time the dust from the ground, if the window or make.

The operating panels should give the impression that you touch the ground, but actually they should not do it.

I personally love the variant when the curtains to almost touch the ground
