Being Creative in Confined Spaces With Curtain Tracks
At one point in many of our lives, we live in a small, confined space. College dorm? First apartment? A condo while waiting for your dream home to be built? The list of reasons can vary, but it is safe to say that everyone can relate to sharing snug living quarters. Being creative in how the space is utilized is key, and also exactly where Curtain-Tracks enters the picture.
A PLACE FOR EVERYTHING
First, you’ll want to live in your small space for a little while to determine what purpose each part of the room should serve. You’ll find yourself tweaking where things are stored based on how you use the space, and before you know it, you’ll naturally create different “zones” of living. Or, you may have to be a little more direct about how the room is divided if you are living with a roommate for the first time.
QUIET AND DARK
Once you have the areas and purposes of the room decided, it makes a lot of sense to use a flexible solution to define the space. Curtains are a great choice because they can be pushed out of the way when you need the whole room to be functional. But when someone needs privacy, quiet, or darkness while another person does not, the curtains can be drawn to create that small space. Our personal favorite for this type of use is our Eclipse Curtains. Thanks to the sound and light diminishing nature of the fabric, you can block out neighbors who aren’t studying, or you can take a mid-day snooze.
Once you have made your favorite color selection from our 28 stylish fabrics, you’ll need to decide how to hang them. This will depend on what kind of ceiling you are working with, but our favorite for just about any situation is our best selling, ceiling mounted Flexible Curtain Track. Just like its name implies, it’s flexible! So, you can bend it by hand to even the most obscure of angles to make it work in your small space. It’s also one of our easiest to install, because it does not require any mounting brackets! Decide on a way for the curtains to hang on the track with a carrier or a glide and you are in business.
Not sure that a flexible track is the right one to mount to your particular ceiling? Need help with the best carrier or glide to choose? Just give us a call and we will walk you through each step of this process. We are happy to help! 1-888-434-7444.
