Finish Off Your French Doors With Curtains


FROM OLD TO NEW

If you are familiar with any of the popular remodeling shows on tv, then you know that an “open concept” is a design element that nearly every homeowner requests. To create this open space, walls are knocked down, support beams are put in place and old single doors are replaced with beautiful French doors that allow more natural light to fill the space. The television designer often then decorates the home in a shabby chic or modern style. When they do this, you will notice that every window has a window treatment, including those French doors. But what about your home and your French doors or sliding glass doors?



SOFTEN THE LOOK

Adding beautiful floor-to-ceiling curtains will warm up any space, and French doors are no exception. To create this look, you simply need a ceiling-mounted curtain track, which we think is the best drapery hardware for dressing a French door. Often, there is very little space from the top of the door to the ceiling so adding a ceiling mounted curtain track is ideal. If you prefer a look where you can’t see the track, some of our tracks can be recessed into the ceiling giving your gorgeous curtains all the focus!If you have a wall of window or several doors that open to the outside, our curtain tracks can even be spliced together as one continuous design element.


PRIVACY PLEASE

Adding curtains to your glass doors not only add a finishing touch to your room, they are functional as well! Simply pull them closed when you need some privacy. If you have French doors in your first floor master suite, consider adding Eclipse light-blocking curtains which help block out light and sound.

Wrinkle Band For The Win!

CLEAN AND FRESH DIY PROJECT

Anyone who has read our blog knows that we love helping our customers with their DIY projects. We love it even more when we get to see the finished project! Check out the pictures that Hanna sent us about how well her vision turned into reality. To achieve the look shown in these pictures, Hanna used two of our products, 3096 Wrinkle Band Tape, and 4142 Hooks.

We love how clean and fresh her living room looks with the sheer white curtains. The wrinkle band gives this very simple fabric some depth and dimension by giving the illusion of pinch pleats on perfectly flat curtains. Using sheers on big windows like hers is a great choice because they still let in the light but allow for privacy and a different feel in the room.



BREAK IT DOWN

Our 4142 hooks come in bags of 14 and are meant to be combined with our carriers with glides, so anyone looking to duplicate this look could choose from 7130 Double Wheel Carrier or 4121 I Beam Nylon Wheel Carrier or other compatible carriers. The wrinkle band tape is made from white cotton and is sold by the yard. This tape is meant to be sewn into curtains or fabric, which creates a finished, professional look for just about any DIY project. We have a very similar hook, which is made from plastic. If you choose this one, you’ll need to choose our 7124 Button Carrier or our 84100 Ball Bearing Carrier.


NOT ONE BUT TWO PROJECTS

Hanna’s second set of pictures, a bedroom, are equally as pretty as her living room! She uses similar products here, but thinks outside of the window box by creating a room division with a ceiling mount track. So simple and so elegant! We love it when our customers use curtains and tracks in areas of the home other than windows. It adds an element of depth

Quality + Customer Service = Curtain-Tracks


QUALITY AND MORE CHOICES

At Curtain-Tracks we believe quality and customer service are two areas that set specialty stores like us apart from big-box competitors. You see, we really know our stuff because it’s all we do. By narrowing our focus to curtains and tracks, we become experts in our field. That means making a product that will last, and offering more choices and high quality options for our customers. It also means that you are not alone in choosing the right hardware for your project; we are here to help every step of the way!



YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR

We won’t knock our competitors. But we think we have found a great combination selection, affordability and quality. The curtains, tracks, and glides offered at the larger stores are not meant to last. They are meant to get you back into the store at some point, to replace the track that just didn’t last. This leaves you spending even more of your hard earned money for a replacement product. Not fun. Our products come with a warranty that will give you peace of mind, knowing that if anything stops working during normal use, we will send you a replacement at no charge to you. That’s the kind of quality assurance you get with a small specialty store like Curtain-Tracks.


WE KNOW OUR STUFF

Because curtains and tracks are all we do at Curtain-Tracks, we really know our products. We know the specs of each of our products, so we know how much weight a particular track can handle, and we know which carriers won’t rust if you use them outside. We know which gliders will give you the smoothest opening and closing, and we know which tracks can be bent by hand and which ones can't be bent. What does this mean for you? It means we can guide you through just about any project with our expertise. It means we know the right questions to ask and the right product to do the job right, the first time.


BUT, WHAT IF I GET IT WRONG?

On the small chance that you don’t wind up with a product you love, don’t worry! We offer a generous return policy. If you receive a product that just doesn’t look right or work properly, you can send it back to us. We request that you call us first, for two reasons: 1. So we know to look for your package; and 2. So we can help guide you to a product that will meet your needs.


WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO LOSE?

We think our products are a low-risk, high-reward investment. We give you high quality at an affordable price, which is the best combination we can offer in retail. We are so passionate about curtains and tracks, we even put it in our name (Now that's dedication!). So, visit out website soon: www.curtain-tracks.com

Avoid A Curtain Rod Fail


DON'T BE THAT HOUSE

Have you ever been to someone's home and noticed their window fixtures? Like really noticed them? Perhaps you admired their decorative curtains and how they billow ever so slightly on the floor beneath the window. Or maybe you noticed their tall windows and how they have added curtain tracks on the ceiling to support the massive drapes. But have you ever noticed a curtain rod (gasp!) that has bowed in the middle?



WHY YOU SHOULDN'T USE THEM

Most curtain rods are made of two pieces. One piece of the rod slides into the other which leaves a bump in the rod (that's an issue all in itself that we will talk about it in a bit). When you have a long curtain rod, a supporting bracket should be put in place in the middle to keep the rod from bending. This might solve the support issue of the curtain rods but that bracket causes a whole other problem; you can never completely close your curtains which can leave an annoying ray of light into the room when you want it to be dark.

As we mentioned above, using a curtain rod that has two (or three) pieces can cause a bump in the middle which can make easily opening and closing curtains a bit of a pain as they get caught on the rod. The easy solution to this curtain rod dilemma is simple: use curtain tracks.


WHAT NOW?

One of our most popular curtain tracks is the 6100 flexible curtain track. What makes this track so special is it can be mounted to the wall or ceiling and it is bendable by hand. Sold by the foot, this track allows long continuous lengths for curved or angled applications, but can also be used for straight applications. If you are looking for a track to be recessed in the ceiling, the 3120 curtain track is the one for the job. Once you have your tracks hung, simply add carriers and your curtains will glide smoothly and easily along the entire length of track.

Drop Ceiling + Curtain-Tracks = Basement Living Space


THE DUNGEON

How many parents use their basement? Some have decided that the basement will be the toy dungeon, where all the legos and matchbox cars can live behind a closed door away from adult feet stepping on them. Other homes have turned the basement into adult space, a tranquil space away from the kids. No matter the use, HGTV tells us that finished basements add value to our homes. Curtain-Tracks is here to help you make this additional space feel like home without breaking the bank.



DROP THAT CEILING

Most basements, even if not fully finished, use a drop ceiling as a cost effective way to cover air ducts and pipes while still giving the homeowner easy access to all that makes a home function. The good news: this solution is budget friendly in many ways. The better news: this solution also allows for easy addition of Curtain-Tracks products. Our 6155 Clamp eliminates the need to drill holes in the ceiling grid, allowing for eventual changes in design without having to figure out how to patch holes.


THE CLAMP PART IS CONNECTED TO THE CARTRIDGE PART

Our drop ceiling clamp allows for easy attachment to the metal parts of the drop ceiling. Our 6151 cartridge allows for the carriers and hooks to connect to the clamp. These cartridges should be placed every ten inches, so do the math before you order, and then do yourself a favor and order one or two more just in case your math skills are rusty. Pick up as much as 98 feet of continuous track with our 6100 Flexible Curtain Track and the rest is easy. You can decide to use the track in a straight line, but you can also curve it by hand to cover that ugly hot water tank, or strange pipe that juts out of the wall at an odd angle.


TO FINISH OR NOT TO FINISH?

Our products might be just the answer you are looking for, even if you are on the fence about completely finishing your basement. If you aren’t sure you will use the space, or you don’t have the budget to go all in, you can still give our products a try. Once attached to the drop ceiling, our curtains, carriers, and cartridges can hide even the ugliest cinder blocks or heating ducts. Our Eclipse Curtains are often featured in our blog posts, and for good reason. They are versatile! They not only block 98% of light (think basement movie theater?) but they also help keep the cold out, and create a cozy space even underground. They are energy efficient and also create a welcoming feeling.


Even if your basement is already finished but perhaps it needs a slight makeover, Curtain-Tracks products can be used to create a more cozy feeling. Our curtains can cover windows to create energy efficiency, or they can cover a whole wall. Or, as we've mentioned in previous blog posts, our curtains can create a moveable wall. No matter the stage of your basement, consider taking the next step to adding more useable and comfortable space to your home by working with Curtain-Tracks.com.

Being Creative in Confined Spaces With Curtain Tracks

SMALL SPACE?

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.


HANG TEN

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.

HELP? PLEASE?

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.

Updating A Boat Shower

TINY SPACES

Showers in boats typically aren’t very big, and that’s okay. You don’t need a large space to take a quick shower when out at sea. For these spaces and to help keep the water contained, we recommend our 6100 Flexible Curtain Track. This track works extremely well in small spaces and is sold by the foot. It bends by hand without compromising strength and can be ceiling or mounted on the wall.



SQUEAKY CLEAN

Our 6111 Flexible Curtain Track Carriers are white plastic wheel carriers with metal loop, sold individually, and work smoothly with the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track. Add the Recmar 7142 Steel Curtain Hook, steel J shaped curtain hooks that are 1.5 inches long and easily attaches to any carrier with a ring to allow for curtains with holes or grommets, plus shower curtains, and your shower is ready to go. Should you need custom curtains to fit the space, we can make them for you from a wide variety of fabrics and colors.

If you already have a shower in your boat and just need replacement parts, chances are, we have exactly what you are looking for. If you are starting new, you don’t have to overthink a project like this. Our friendly customer service team is here to help you every step of the way. And of course, if you have completed a boat shower project, we’d love to see your photos!
