Decorating windows and exits to the balcony with tulles, curtains and curtains allows you to transform the appearance of the room for the better.
Textiles are attached to the cornices in different ways: on hooks, eyelets, tape. One of the most practical and beautiful ways to hang curtains on a window is to install eyelets. These are special fasteners that border the edges of the slots in the fabric, and then a cornice rod is threaded through them.
Do-it-yourself eyelets for curtains can be inserted into the fabric without much difficulty, but for this it is necessary to make preliminary calculations.
These curtain fasteners are made of metal, wood and plastic. Each of the materials has its own advantages and disadvantages. The most practical are plastic eyelets.
The sizes of the eyelets can be very diverse.
Products with a diameter of 10 - 50 mm are more popular. In addition, fasteners are made in a variety of colors, with or without a pattern.
Installing eyelets in itself is not a difficult task, it is important to choose the shape, material of the products, and calculate the step installation.
There can be difficulties here, because not every store can find exactly what you want.
When deciding on the choice, take note of the fact that the diameter of the eyelets for curtains inside the element should be about 2 cm exceed the diameter of the eaves strip.
Otherwise, the curtains will not slide well when moving in the right direction.
The color of the eyelets is often selected depending on the shade of the textile or cornice. Also, no one forbids playing in contrast, in order to accentuate details. The stylistic design of the room also influences the choice of both the colors and the material of the eyelets. Plastic in this case is a more advantageous option, since you can choose an imitation for any material.
Before you start making curtains on eyelets with your own hands, you need:
Note. If you choose a light fabric (tulle, organza), you need to purchase a special transparent tape.
First of all, measure the length of the curtain rod, and determine the height of the curtains.
To get beautiful and even folds, the length of the curtain rod is multiplied by a factor:
We take into account allowances for creating seams:
The length of the cornice is 1.7 m, which means that the fabric for sewing curtains will take:
1.7 x 2 + 0.15 = 3.55 m = 355 cm.
To calculate , take measurements of the inner and outer diameters of the element. In addition, you need to arm yourself with such knowledge:
It depends on the width of the fold and the diameter of the fastener from the inside.
Important. Be careful not to catch the eyelet on the seam, otherwise you will not be able to snap it tightly.
Calculate the distance from one edge to the middle of the first fastener (p). Let's take as an example elements with a diameter of 25 mm on the inside and 38 mm on the outside.
p = 1/2 outer diameter + hem width from one edge + indent from the hem
p = 3.8 / 2 + 2.5 + 0.5 = 4.9 cm
Round up to 5 cm.
Number of elements = 2p / distance between fasteners + 1
(355 - 2 x 5): 18 + 1 = 20.16 pieces.
Round the value to 20.
(355 - 2 x 5) / (18 - 1) = 20, 29 cm.
Can also be rounded and get 20 cm.
After the fabric is prepared, iron it again with an iron and lay it on the floor. Now you can proceed to the stage of installing the fasteners. The first to install the eyelets around the edges. To do this:
After that you need to follow the drawing and calculations that you will make the day before. Make sure that the installation of the eyelets is carried out at the same height. After installing all the fasteners, you can hang the finished product on the cornice.
If you have a cat at home, then she can safely hang on them. This is a joke, of course, but there is some truth in this.
As for the styles of interior decoration and beautiful curtains on the eyelets, we can confidently say that they are suitable for any manifestation of minimalism: loft, Scandinavia, high-tech, marina.In addition, wood eyelets can be selected for rustic interiors: ethno. Country, provence. Modern style of art nouveau, modern, prefers the shine of metal.
For country style window decoration, pay attention to fabrics with a checkered pattern in a light range.
Lines can be red, blue, green, brown, turquoise. High-tech style prefers no-frills gray tones. Modern is created on the basis of pastel and beige colors.
Washing is a basic care that can be applied to most textiles. Before immersing the curtains in the washing machine drum, make sure you select eyelets that are water resistant.
Otherwise, you will have to remove them, we are talking about metal products without a note about the possibility of exposure to water.
Purchase a special bag to wash delicate items. It can be replaced with a pillowcase if you don't have it. Washing program - for delicate items without spinning. After washing, wet curtains are hung on the eaves.
Remember that this method of cleaning fabric should not be used more than once every 6 months. At other times, just periodically shake the curtains or vacuum.
