There are a number of reasons why cafe curtains are back in style, particularly for use in kitchens, and to understand this, we have to first understand how these curtains are structured. Cafe curtains cover only one-third or half of a window. Above these curtains is empty space, which is followed by about an 8-12 inch valance at the top of the window. Usually, the valance style is similar to the curtain below, but may vary based on the preference of the home owner and decorator. The curtains below may be divided into two panels depending on the width of the window. These curtains are a great choice for kitchens due to the following reasons: Cafe curtains provide just the right amount of privacy to kitchens, and yet allow for adequate amount of light to enter. With its structure, it provides a traditional, warm, and homely appearance to the kitchen. It may look particularly well in a kitchen designed on rustic or country lines. The amount of variety you can add in terms of looks is great with these curtains. The fabrics, patterns, designs, colors, and textures allow for great variety that is rare with any other kind of kitchen window decoration. These curtains are available in fabrics that are easily washable, and this makes them very easy to use and maintain for the kitchen. Choosing Cafe Curtains for Your Kitchen
Measurements: First of all, you need to determine the amount of fabric that you would need. This can be easily determined by measuring height and width of the gazebo. As far as the length of the curtains is concerned, you need to buy fabric that is 3 inches longer than the measured height of the gazebo. From these extra 3 inches, 1 inch will be needed for the bottom hem, and 2 inches will be required for the top pocket of the gazebo curtain panels. For the width, the fabric that you purchase should be one and a half times longer than the actual width, plus additional 1 inch on both sides for hemming. Method of Sewing: Always use straight and vertical seams throughout the sewing length of the fabric. First of all, sew a 2 inch deep curtain pocket throughout the length of the top side of the fabric. You can increase the length of the pocket, if you are using thick curtain rods. You also need to add 1 inch hem at the sides and bottom. Once you are done with sewing, all you need to do is attach the curtain to the rod on top of the inside frame of the gazebo. You can also create more decorative additions, like adding hooks, Velcro panels, and decorative panels that are easily available on the market.
There is one more advice for you we should mention, and its about the window frame. You can buy some wood to make two frames and fit them inside the window where your cafe curtain should go. Use the stapler, or hot glue if you have some, and set up your fabric on the window frame, lower and upper side both, to make beautiful country style curtains.
