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.
Thanks to another customer who was very happy with the Christmas Stocking Hanger Kit she purchased from Curtain-Tracks.com. She shared the picture below, which highlights how subtle the low profile track is when mounted under a mantel. In this instance, the white Stocking Hangers blend nicely with the antique white mantel. More importantly, it met the expectations of the customer.
We confess we are late in getting this posted, as the images were shared some time back, but better late than never. The husband and wife duo Scott and Kim of Yellow Brick Home, a very popular home interior design blog, have become repeat customers of Curtain-Tracks.com. In a mid year project focused on the interior redesign of a bedroom, they again chose to utilize curtains hung from ceiling mounted tracks. The simple silver curtain track offers a nice contrast to the colors of the curtains and the walls, and provided the functionality the creative pair was seeking.
In response to our call for pictures in this month's email newsletter, Tim W. from Bangor, ME was the first to respond. Thanks Tim! He shared the picture below showing the new curtains he added to his VW Westfalia Camper (also known as a Westy). Tim used the 3096 Wrinkle Band and 4040 Wrinkle Band Hooks for his project, along with the 3050 Eye Slides to replace some missing from his VW Westfalia curtain track system.
We recently received some great images of an outdoor curtain installation in Oakland, TN from one of our customers and wanted to share them. Jerry C. fabricated his own outdoor curtains from a Sunbrella outdoor fabric. This outdoor fabric will hold up well in the elements, and provides shade while still offering some transparency through the curtains based upon the weave of the fabric. The intent was to provide shade for the covered patio behind their home, and we really like the look of this finished do-it-yourself (DIY) project.
With the Christmas holidays approaching quickly, many homeowners will begin to pull Christmas decorations out of the attic or basement to decorate. Christmas stockings are certainly a staple for many people, and we offer a great Christmas Stocking Hook Kit that makes hanging stockings safe, quick, and easy. This kit offers a total of six feet of track that can be mounted under a fireplace mantel, or under a shelf or door frame, along with six hooks that easily slide from side to side. Because the track is a very low profile, it can be left mounted year round. The hooks can be removed or replaced. The mantel track is available in white, black, brown, or gray to blend nicely with most fireplace mantels or other mounting surfaces.
We've mentioned before in our blog about replacing closet doors with curtains. Along those lines, we came across an interesting article at realsimple.com regarding closet conversion by Nicole Sforza. The article highlighted three homeowners who took closet space that was disorganized and underutilized and converted it into stylish and highly functional alcoves in their living spaces. In each of the three examples, you will notice that a curtain was used to conceal the area or storage within the area, and you know by know that we are always on the lookout for creative ways to utilize curtain tracks in interior design.
The customers base at Curtain-Tracks.com ranges widely from Interior Designers, Architects, Work Rooms, and General Contractors on the commercial side to Home Owners, Renters, and DIY lovers on the consumer side, and we are here to serve this wide range.
