Types of Curtains


Types of CurtainsThe tops of curtains, called “Curtain Headings” are a way of customizing and styling blinds and valances so that the fabric a range of pleats and/or folds. You can create a great custom feel by experimenting with these different types of curtains!

· Box pleated type of curtain headings give a very tailored look and drape into deep folds down the full length of the curtains. The pleats butt onto each other with no interval between them.

· The cased type curtain heading is used mainly for nets and lightweight fabrics that are not to be opened and closed frequently. A casing or channel sewn across the top is left open at the ends. A slender curtain rod or plastic covered spring wire slots through the channel and fits onto hooks or into sockets at the side of the window.

· The eyelet type curtain heading is great for minimalist look, a narrow rod, pole or wire is threaded through eyelets that are inserted close to the top edge creating deep folds. This is suitable for light to medium weight fabrics.

· Goblet type pleated curtain heading pleats make a very elegant heading for longer lengths. Pleats fall from each goblet that can be stuffed with tissue paper or cotton wool to retain their shape. This heading tape has 2 sets of cords and is good for medium to heavyweight fabrics.

· Tab top curtain heading for a less formal heading is created with loops of matching or contrasting fabric that are stitched onto the top edge of the treatment omitting the need for heading tape. These work on all weights of fabric. This heading is only suitable for poles.

When you are working with these various types of curtains, be sure to measure your windows and consider how full you want your curtain to be. Double or even triple the width of your fabric to suit your individual taste.
