When you are planning to install custom window treatments, you can go to local tailor for curtains or drapes. He or she usually can make one if you provide the measurements and bring the fabric. Many tailors will be able to do the job if it’s only hemming the fabric. But if you want something more complicated, try a seamstress who specializes in window treatments. You can also get the custom window treatments onlinewith you send in the fabrics. For custom shades, upholsterers usually can make Roman shades. However, a seamstress specializing in window treatments can also make custom shades you want to have.
One important thing is to provide the appropriate measurements. First, measure for the length of custom window treatments you want first. Start from the top of the window frame to wherever you wish the panels to fall—skim the ground with a few additional inches. Next is deciding where to place the curtain rod. Determine how many inches the rod will be above the window frame and add the figure to the length measurement obtained previously.
Determine how to hang the custom window treatments on the rod. Your options include clip rings, pocket rod, grommets, and sewn-in rings. Deciding which one to use helps you to know if you need less or more fabric to make it work. Next is to measure the width of the window from one frame edge to another. Lastly, add an addition of 2½” to every side for hemming. The result is the total amount of fabric you will need.
Even though custom window treatments cost will require you to pay more, you have the freedom to choose any fabric you like. For example try bold prints for custom window treatments, especially if you plan to install Roman shades. The flat surface makes it easier to see the full pattern. On the other hand, smaller prints are generally more suitable on drapes.
Last but not least, you may want to consider adding a liner to your custom window treatments, especially drape or curtain. Drapery fabric is usually thin, and a liner can improve the look while adding a higher sense of privacy in the room. Apart from that, liners are typically affordable, so you can either ask your seamstress or buy it yourself. Some seamstresses usually have suppliers for liner fabric and the cost of the liner will be included in the price of the job.
