Curtains add color, design and texture to a room. In addition to providing privacy and not only preventing light from entering a place, they also generate style and decoration in a place.
To choose the perfect curtains, several factors must be taken into account.
Get the right fabric, color and size right.
The first thing you have to be clear about is the function they are going to have. Choosing curtains that isolate us from the outside and drafts is not the same as choosing curtains whose only function is to decorate our windows or add some color to our decoration, since some must be thicker and others must be thicker. thin
Another very important point to consider is the drape or rigidity of the textile, because depending on what you want is the type of fabric you have to purchase. For example, if you want long, loose, pleated or decorative ones, look for ones that have a greater drop.
If what you want to purchase is a blind, the fabric will have to be firmer to give it support and structure.
At FORMATEX we have a wide variety of fabrics and they not only work for upholstery, on the contrary, they can also be used to make curtains, since they have great performance, are durable, are heavier, thicker, can be cleaned and repel stains. .
However, sometimes upholstery fabrics may be smaller in width than the window you are trying to hang the curtains on, typically between 54 and 60 inches wide.
Likewise, we have ideal terraces so you have privacy, but thin enough to let light through.
Precisely each type of fabric has a different width and stiffness. Therefore, when making them it is important to take into consideration that the fabric must be at least twice the width of your window. However, if you really want to get good curtains you will need triple the width.
For example, if your window measures one meter wide, you will need a minimum fabric width of 2.5 meters, if the fabric is very thin we recommend a minimum of 3 meters.
So, don't wait any longer and purchase any fabric from our catalog to obtain a great product for that special space.
