Last weekend I went to my best-friend-from-childhood's wedding. I've known this girl since playing soccer on the community team at just 5 years old, so it's safe to say, Laura and I go way back. As such, I knew I could expect her a few clever twist and turns during her Chicago Cubs themed reception.
Last week I attended an interior design round-table discussion and was surprised with how many people were not aware of curtain tracks and all their potential in the interior design and Do-It-Yourself worlds. So, I thought it would be helpful if I pulled together a simple summary of why I love (and you'll love) working with curtain tracks from Curtain-Tracks.com.
Warmer weather is certainly on its way, which means a few things for me. First of all, I need to make sure the storm drains are clear so that when all the snow melts, we won’t have a flood in our front yard (I live close enough to Lake Michigan, I don’t need a smaller version at the onset of my porch). But aside from that daunting task, it also means fun things like planning my spring garden selections and prepping our boat for future outings once again.
The other day, I was dropping off a heap of clothes at the dry cleaners. Among the pile was a pair of dress pants that I normally opt to wash and dry myself. In regards to this particular pair, the lady at the register asked me, “How would you like your crease – down the front, or off to the side?”
I never realized how many possibilities there were with curtain-related products until I helped my friend Mal, the CEO of a small fashion-based public relations firm, complete her business’ move into a new loft location in a trendy New York neighborhood.
The Little Black dress is a staple in most every woman’s wardrobe. And rightfully so, as it’s undoubtedly an iconic item, appropriate for all occasions, and goes with everything.
Curtain-Tracks.com is pleased to announce the addition of custom sized shower curtains to our product offering. This affords our customers a choice to purchase taller and wider sizes than what is available via retail stores. Whether it's extra tall shower curtains to account for a ceiling mounted track, or a wider curtain to wrap around a claw foot tub or form a shower enclosure for a corner shower, these shower curtains are the answer. These custom made shower curtains are available in commercial grade vinyl (including a clear vinyl), nylon, or waffle poly/cotton blend fabrics. The durability of these materials and sturdy construction set these shower curtains apart from off the shelf shower curtains.
Curtain tracks can offer a retail store owner a lot of flexibility with regard to how their dressing rooms and changing areas are configured. Often times, a retailer wants to create a space for customers to try on clothes or change without incurring the expense of building out hard walls to meet this need. In this scenario, curtains on tracks can be used to conceal the entire perimeter of this changing area. No walls are needed, and the curtains can be pulled back or removed to free up the space for other uses as needed. The use of divider or privacy curtains allows a shop owner to fully utilize their floor space and grants latitude to change the use on the fly.
Based on feedback from customers, we have added a metal curtain clip with a ring attached to the drapery hardware offering at Curtain-Tracks.com. The plated steel curtain clips with rings make it easy to hang a curtain or backdrop that doesn't have pleats, grommets, or other means of easily attaching a hook. The clips can be added directly to the top edge of a curtain and the rings can be looped through the holes in most curtain carriers or glides. These curtain clips can be great to hang flat curtains with pockets intended for use with curtain rods from curtain tracks instead.
Privacy Cubicle Track is a ceiling mounted track that is typically used to hang privacy cubicle curtains, divider curtains, shower curtains or other curtains that have grommets across the top. There are several reasons why this type of track is the industry standard, being the hardware of choice in hospitals, clinics, medical offices, spas, gyms, locker rooms, dance studios, and retail outlets across the US.
