COLOR AND FABRIC
curtains is capable of standing for 10+ years and one with fade color or poor fabric is not one we stand for. We provide quality as well as unique variety of colors from solid dark to combination of light contrast for you to choose one. We suggest you to get your curtain’s fabric, a heavy one, so that it may fall well at your desired window.
We wont be staying there where our curtains will but we know that sunlight fades the color of curtains. If your room gets a lot of light, we suggest you to avoid bright colors, since they tend to fade faster. Check out some of our neutral colors, since they’re less likely to fade than other colors and more likely to blend into a room’s decor.
When it comes to material, silk, faux silk, linen and velvet are one of the best choices to be use for window treatments due to their awesome hanging capability. “Faux silk tends to be the most durable”, and in a particularly sunny room, faux silk doesn’t deteriorate as quickly as real silk.
Some fabrics can help keep out the cold. Now a days, many modern hotels use suede, velvet, tapestry or tweed as their hotel curtains since their weight helps block light and its effect. Furthermore, any fabric can be interlined with bump ( a thick insulating materiel attached at the back of curtains) and interlining which is a piece of unique fabric slipped between the lining & the face fabric. It can also help prolong the life of the curtains. Lining and interlining are what give curtains their body and fullness. If silk is unlined, it will rot.
LENGTH AND LINING
If you by your own want to take out the tape & start measuring, we suggest you to firstly decide how high above the window you would like the curtains to begin.
“Hanging panels higher than the window will give a sense of height to the room”.
our designers suggest to hang curtains about six inches above the window frame, but for a dramatic look, some curtains may go higher.
Measure from the top of the window + the added inches of height from where the curtains will hang to the floor. If you want to add a more traditional looks, let the curtain slightly puddle on the floor, you’ll want to add another two or three inches to your length. Have the panel fall flush with the floor to give more modern, unique and crisp look.
While measuring the width of windows, one should be sure to add 4 to 8 inches on both sides and add the total number to ensure curtain fullness. Reason behind four to eight inches extra adding to curtain’s width is to block out any creeping light.
“Then you won’t block a lot of window glass when the curtains are open, and they won’t get in the way,”
OFF-THE-SHELF AND CUSTOM WINDOW TREATMENTS
Custom window treatments has its own Pros: You are fully able to customize the dimensions of your window size as well as create a tailored look just like a perfectly-fitted suit. We provide custom panels with endless design options ranging from material to elegant header style. Though with these options, comes a considerable price difference from off-the-shelf curtain panels.
If custom curtains just aren’t in your budget, Cunningham suggests spending a little more money on high-quality retail window treatments.
WASHER MACHINE FRIENDLY VS. DRY CLEAN ONLY
We want our costumers to determine whether they are going to buy dry-clean type of curtains or washer machine friendly curtain. It will surely save your time & money in the long run. we want to tell you this because we previously had some consumer reports about high-quality curtains ruined by trying to wash them themselves.
