Nearly every year, it seems Puxatawney Phil predicts winter will last a little longer, but the calendar officially tells us that spring is here. And if your house is anything like ours, that means the honey-do list has grown to include lots of outdoor projects. At Curtain-Tracks, we like to suggest you move one of those projects to the top of the list: Adding Curtains to Your Pergola. This outdoor project makes for a great first spring project for a few reasons.
BANG FOR YOUR BUCK
Adding curtains to your pergola is easier than it sounds plus it gives a lot of bang for your buck. Simply adding a curtain track and some durable curtains, and your outdoor living space transforms from drab to classy. You can a lot of fabric to create a lush, layered effect. For a light, airy, and beachy feel, try using a sheer fabric that can easily blow in the breeze. For a more rustic look, try a textured fabric like burlap that will add great depth to the space. A simple and rustic tie back such as twine or even a small cut of the same fabric will allow the curtains to be out of the way when you don’t need them but still add another layer of design.
A PLACE TO RELAX
We suggest bumping this project to the top of your honey-do list so you can create a cozy retreat to enjoy after a long day of yard work (and all of the other to-do items on your list). Imagine mowing and weeding the yard in between soccer games this weekend and then being able to sit back with an adult beverage to admire your hard work. Would it be more relaxing underneath your bare pergola that needs a coat of stain or would it be more relaxing behind fresh curtains blowing in the wind? We know which we’d prefer as we toast our family for a job well done.
STAND UP TO THE ELEMENTS
Not only are Curtain-Tracks products exceptional for changing the aesthetics of your patio, but they are functional as well. Using our plastic tracks for outdoor use is a great choice because they won’t rust in the elements. You could also try our steel hooks for the same reason; they won’t rust and the look is simply classic.
So, the next time you are looking at your to-do list, consider drawing an arrow to the top of the list from the “update pergola” item. You won’t be sorry. And, bonus! We will help you place the order so you don’t forget any measurements or hardware. Heck, you can even call us right from your patio: 1-888-434-7444.
UPDATING YOUR HOME
Curtain-Tracks spends lots of time helping to make our customer's homes, offices, RV's and boats feel fresh and updated, so we thought it was time to make our "home" feel that way, too. With that being said, Curtain-Tracks.com has gotten a face lift! And boy, are we excited about our beautiful and easy to navigate website.
The new design is simple to use with clear-cut language and titles that make finding your favorite products a breeze! Whether you are looking for curtain tracks, hardware and accessories or curtains, the large buttons front and center on the main page, make it easy to get started on your browsing.
THE BIG GREEN BOX
One of the first things you will notice when you visit our beautiful new site is the bold green box in the upper right corner. That’s by design. We want you to be able to easily search for your favorite product quickly and easily. Put in a keyword, and you’ll be amazed at the simple but thorough results. The product you searched for will be there, front and center, PLUS, all of the products that are related to that item are included as well.

Even though we offer several different products, the website and navigation are not overwhelming. The pictures and descriptions are simple allowing for a quick and easy selection of the product or products you are searching for, however, the additional products that are included will hopefully prevent the “oh bummer I forgot that” moment by suggesting other items you might need for your project.
MORE INFORMATION IS GOOD
Another feature within on our site is a second tab for even more information! We love that there is so much information so easily accessible for those who want to learn more, but that the information is not in your face and confusing.

TRENDY AND COOL
HGTV has always been one of our favorite go-to's when it comes to the latest style and trends. When we saw their post with this photo of floor to ceiling curtains and curved walls, we just had to share. There are so many great things about every single thing in this picture, we just can’t hide our excitement! Let’s break down everything we love about these curtains.
BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Somehow, the curtains in this room design are both a focal point and a back drop. This is the beauty of floor to ceiling curtains. They can blend into the wall if you use similarly colored paint and fabric; they can serve as an attention grabber if you choose opposite colors; and, obviously, they can actually cover windows. For this type of project with the unique curved walls, we love our best selling flexible curtain track.
The beauty of our flexible track is that it can be custom bent (by hand!) to follow even the most unusual curve. This attention to detail helps to create the custom look that prevails through the entire room. Something as simple as this detail can be the finishing touch that pulls everything together.
LOTS OF CURTAINS
One of the outstanding features of this room is the amount of texture from the curtains. In addition to being pristine white (beautiful!), there is a lot of fabric which creates a great deal of texture. With a large amount of fabric, even when the curtains are drawn closed, there is plenty of texture to go around. Our 6100 track is the perfect fit here because it comes in a heavy duty gauge to handle the weight of the curtains.
When choosing your track, you should consider the style as well as the total weight of the curtains. Weight comes not only from the type of fabric, but from the quantity of fabric as well. Many people forget to factor in the height of the curtains, which can add a fair amount of weight that will need to be hung on the track. Our selection of heavy duty tracks can stand up to the challenge.
BEST SELLING FOR A REASON
The 6100 track has so many great qualities, it’s no wonder it is one of our best sellers! It can be used in so many different applications and it can create such a custom look. Visit Curtain-Tracks.com to order yours today. Don’t forget to check out the compatible products at the bottom of the page to finish your project. You’ll need mounting cartridges for every ten inches of length.
