Now that your linens have been washed what's the best way to get them dry? Linen can be placed in a dryer, hung on a line or laid flat to dry. If you are using a dryer you will want to place it on the delicate or gentle cycle so the temperature is a little cooler than some of the other settings. Having the linen in direct sunlight for at least part of the drying time is recommended to kill any bacteria and because it makes your linens smell good. Linen fabrics do not have to be ironed but if you choose to it is best to do it when the fabric is still slightly damp. White and light colored linens can be ironed on both sides, but darkly colored linens should only be ironed on the wrong side (the side that is not facing out to be seen).
So let's take a look at one of the first decisions you'll make when picking out a new curtain rod: visible or invisible rods. And that requires a clarification: the invisible rods really aren't totally invisible. The mostly invisible rods are completely covered - invisible - only when the drapes or curtains are closed. When your curtains are open part of the rod is visible. In other words your curtain rod still needs to complement your decor whether it's mostly visible or mostly invisible.
Holdbacks and tiebacks serve the same purpose: to gently scoop up your curtains and hold them at the side of the window. Holdbacks are attached directly to the wall. Tiebacks are often lengths of cording, some with tassel ends that tie around the "belly" of your open curtains to hold them back.
What are your options? You can choose from standard rods, spring-loaded rods, traverse rods, decorative rods, adjustable rods, magnetic rods, double and triple rods . . . made from brass, chrome, ivory, graphite, mahogany, teak, walnut, plastic, metal . . . . And we haven't even mentioned color or style yet!
