Things to Consider with Your Custom Curtains

curtainDeciding which type of window treatment is going to be the best fit for your home is something that requires consideration, testing out a few different designs and ultimately figuring out which type of material is going to fit in with the aesthetic of your home and be the most efficient for your style. At Arjay’s Window Fashion in Ventura, we have a large selection of materials that you can consider for your home, each offering something different when selected as a window treatment. Here are a few of the different things that you need to consider when you are choosing the material for your custom curtains.

Durability

One of the primary things that you’re going to want to consider when purchasing curtains is how durable the material is. Most of the curtains that we find in common home good stores are going to be made from common fabrics, like cotton or a blend of fabrics that can look nice when first purchased, but won’t hold up to the various things that your curtain will come across. If you’re not sure what we mean by this, don’t worry, we’ve broken it down. When you hang your curtains, you’re going to want a material that is durable enough to maintain its color even with the sun shining on it every day. If you are looking at getting curtains for efficiency reasons, then you’re definitely going to want to make sure that your curtains are thick enough to actually help maintain a temperature within your house and block any air that could potentially escape. Curtains that are more durable may be more expensive initially, but you will see that you pay for their worth in the time that they last.

Sizing

Curtains are made to fit a variety of window sizes, but making sure that you have the right size for your windows is something that you need to take a moment to double check and make sure that this window treatment will actually fit your window. There are certain materials that will only be made in certain sizes, so if you are looking for a material that you can use throughout your house, you need to have an idea of what size windows you’re going to need these custom curtains fitted to. If there are certain materials that you’re looking for, we can do our best to try and fit them to windows, even when they aren’t custom for that type of material, but there are certain materials that you’re going to want to stay away from for window sizes.

Thread Count

Materials that are commonly used to make clothes will usually have a smaller thread count than most of the materials that you will see are used for the curtains you’ll be looking at. If you start looking into different materials to use for your custom curtains, it’s always worth looking at the thread count so that you can tell what the quality of your curtains are going to be in relation to standard clothes and threadwork. This is a great way to really determine what the various quality levels are when switching between fabrics and threadwork.

Texture

From velvet to cotton, all different types of fabrics will create a different texture for the curtains that they create. If you are looking to have a very particular type of fabric for your curtains, then you should definitely sample a few different types of fabric so that you know you’ve selected the right one. We can help you do that when you stop by our showroom in Ventura.

If you’re ready to get started choosing which types of materials you’d like for your custom curtains, then it’s time you stop by Arjay’s Window Fashions in Ventura. We will be more than happy to help you narrow down the options that you have.
