There are many variations in pleated drapes; viz: goblet pleats, pencil pleats, French pleats, box pleats, and pinched pleats. The pinch pleated ones are available in double or triple folds, and are very easy to make at home.
Nobody likes to pay retail when you can get something for a well-discounted price. However much you like a particular curtain print or style, looking at its exorbitant price might make you think twice about buying it. However, it is very much possible to get these drapes for a lesser cost. The trick is to know when and where to get them from. There are many materials like rich velvets, luxurious raw silk, taffeta, jacquard, satins, lace, and embroidered drapery fabric that cost a lot. And if it is a designer fabric at that, it will cost even more because of its unique print and design.
Needless to say, there are numerous fabrics in the market that will look good on your windows. However, the decision of choosing the curtain fabric should depend on the kind of effect you want to create in your room. Silk, cotton, sheer, linen, synthetic blends, tapestry or voile can be used alone or in combination with other fabrics to produce a light and breezy or heavy and formal impression of the room.
Cleaning blinds may look like a Herculean task, but you can do it in a jiffy, if you have a basic idea about the right methods. If you have installed blinds at your home, make sure that they are cleaned regularly. Dust accumulated for months on end can be more difficult to remove. Such dirty blinds may also pose health risks. Regular cleaning involves dusting both sides of the blinds using a lambswool duster, paintbrush, or vacuum cleaner with the soft brush attachment. Once a week dusting will be sufficient to maintain your blinds clean. Wash the blinds once in every three to six weeks. This can be done on your own, or by hiring professionals. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions, especially in case of expensive blinds.
