Who Says Drapery Hardware Isn’t Sexy?

Carrie, Charlotte, Miranda and Samantha soon revisit the big screen with the upcoming release of Sex and the City 2 on May 27, 2010.  It may interest our customers to know that Curtain-Tracks.com played a small part in the making of this new movie.  A production company involved with the movie purchased curtain track from Curtain-Tracks.com and were kind enough to let us know that the drapery hardware would be used on the set.   We aren’t sure where it will turn up, but we will certainly watch with a keen eye to see if we can spot it.

    The Magic of A Wand


    HOCUS POCUS

    Have you ever had to open curtains that are hung from a high ceiling? If you have, did you have to tug on them to open and close them or did you use a wand? A curtain wand (also known as a baton), is often added to curtains, whether they are at standard height or on tall windows. The wand allows for added ease when opening and closing. This handy-dandy item is often overlooked because let's face it, it's not an especially glamorous accessory. But this small piece of hardware allows for seamless opening and closing of curtains and you will find them at many establishments, most commonly, in hotels and homes. In fact, we would almost bet you will find them in 90% of the hotels you visit!




    NOT FLASHY

    We will admit that the wand, or baton, is one of our favorite pieces of hardware. Our 84182 White Fiberglass Wand and 7136 Clear Acrylic Wand can be attached to almost any curtain simply by clipping it to the last carrier. It's not flashy but once installed, the wand allows you to easily open and close curtains, even those heavy draperies hung from a tall ceiling. If you are looking for a kit, our Master Carriers & Wands (Batons) Kit might be just what you are looking for. It has 8 Wheel Master Carriers to offer superior stability and overlap of curtains when drawn. Includes a left and right master carrier and two 36 inch clear acrylic wands with clips for easy attachment. The wands are hidden out of sight behind the curtain when clipped to master carrier.


    WHY ASK WHY?

    Our customers often ask us, "Why should I use a wand when I can just pull the curtains open?" The answer is simple. Using a wand can help save your curtain track, carriers and curtains from dirty hands and wear and tear. An added bonus: they are inexpensive!


    GO FOR IT

    The function of these little magic wands is pretty awesome. The next time you are working on a project, consider adding a wand. If you already use one, we would love to hear your thoughts.

    A Mount-ainous Task

    Do you ever feel like installing curtain tracks is a mountainous task? Well, in some ways, it is. This is because the track must be mounted to the wall or ceiling. If you have rudimentary do-it-yourself skills, you can mount the track where it needs to go, but not everything you need can be found from our online catalog.

    Enhancing The Look Of A Hotel Lobby

    MAKE A STATEMENT

    Curtain tracks aren't just for window curtains. Many interior designers use fabrics to accent features of a room beyond just the windows. Decorative wall panels are one option, and here, fabric panels were hung with 84004 track and 84106 wheeled snap tape carriers to give this hotel lobby a striking feature while enhancing the look of a traditional column. The corded carriers give the panels a beautiful, consistent ripple fold pleat look.



    FIRST IMPRESSIONS

    The 84004 Ball Bearing Carrier Curtain Track works extremely well for this project. It is a ceiling mount aluminum architectural track that accommodates smooth rolling ball bearing carriers. Available in white or silver, it comes in 8 foot sections which can be mounted end to end for wider spans. Pairing this track with the 84106 Wheeled Snap Carrier, it allows for easy movement. Available in white or black nylon, the snap pendant rotates in a wheeled base. By adding these panels to the columns, the decorator turned the entire look of the hotel lobby around. We think it makes quite the first impression.


    THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX

    Whether your project is in a home, hotel, hospital, RV or boat, curtain tracks can be used in many ways. If you are an interior designer and are in need in curtain tracks, hardware or accessories, we would love to help. We also have a "To The Trade" discount program intended for Interior Designers and Architects and we invite you to contact our customer service team at (888) 434-7444 to learn more.

    Hot Tub Privacy Curtains

    A NICE SOAK

    There are many therapeutic benefits to enjoying a nice, long, relaxing soak in a hot tub. The warm water can ease muscle soreness and arthritis pain and may also lead to a night of deeper sleep. But if you have an outdoor hot tub, you just may want a little bit of privacy from your next door neighbors. Curtain-Tracks.com can help!

    SERENE SPACE

    For a project like this, we suggest placing your hot tub in a serene space (or as serene as possible). That may be next to a tree or two or some bushes. Then to enhance the space, you can add a simple pergola around your hot tub. A pergola project may seem daunting, but there are many ready-to-assemble pergola kits available and you can find the perfect design for your space.

    RUB A DUB DUB

    Once you assemble your pergola, you can add curtain tracks, carriers and curtains along the inside of the frame. A great track for a project like this would be the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track. One of our most popular tracks, the 6100 can be bent by hand and allows for long continuous lengths for curved or angled applications, but can also be used for straight applications. Made of white PVC with an internal metal spine, it can be mounted on a wall or ceiling. Another option is the 3118 Aluminum Ceiling Mount Track. The 3118 is a silver anodized aluminum curtain track with satin finish. Available in either 8 foot length plus 4 foot length or two 6 foot pieces (12 feet total), it mounts to the pergola and mounting brackets are not required. Once you build your pergola and add your curtain tracks, you just need to select carriers and curtains to complete your private oasis of relaxation!

    TIME TO RELAX

    Ready to relax in your sprivate hot tub oasis but not exactly sure how to tackle a project like this? Give our friendly customer servoce team a call. We love to help our customers with simple and challenging projects!

    Get To Work In Your Basement Home Office


    AVOID THE DISRUPTIONS

    If you work from home, you probably know that statistics show you are more productive than if you were to work in a large office with several people. The main reason is you *supposedly* have fewer interruptions. You don’t have co-workers knocking on your office door or stopping by your cubicle asking about your weekend. In fact, statistics show that for every time you are interrupted, it can take up to 23 minutes to become refocused, so working alone can be helpful when trying to get a lot of work completed.


    HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS

    Home offices do have downfalls however. FedEx may ring your doorbell setting the dogs into a barking spree. The kids may come home from school and start arguing or playing loudly. All of these things, and so many others, can cause disruptions, especially if you are on a conference call, GoToMeeting or Zoom call. We’ve worked with customers to try to alleviate some of these noise issues in home work spaces by adding a ceiling mount curtain track with eclipse curtains around the office space. When the curtains are pulled, it helps absorb sound (perfect when you are head down into a project or on a call) plus when pulled behind you, they can give your office a uniform look around your dedicated space (concealing a concrete wall), which your boss may love.




    SOUND OFF

    For those with a drop ceiling, our drop ceiling clamp attaches easily to the metal parts of the drop ceiling and our 6151 cartridge allows for the carriers and hooks to connect to the clamp. These ceiling cartridges are used to mount the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track and should be placed every 10 inches. The 6100 curtain track is perfect for a basement project because it allows long continuous lengths for curved or angled applications, but can also be used for straight applications. So if your home office is in a corner, you can bend the track to accommodate your work space. After you have installed your track, add the curtains of your choice. To help reduce noise, our eclipse curtains are the best and we have a vast selection of colors and sizes to choose from.


    ALL WORK

    If you are looking for a sound-solution in your basement office, adding curtain tracks and eclipse curtains may be just the sound absorbing solution you are looking for!

    Looking For A Bit Of Quiet At Work? Consider Adding Curtains


    WIDE OPEN SPACES

    Open office spaces were once thought to be the best thing since sliced bread. They allowed for improved social interaction, collaboration and increased productivity. Inc.com recently published an article discussing this short lived trend and how "people are still people and like most people you and your employees probably wouldn't mind a little time away from...well...other people." But if your work space is wide open and you aren't willing to move your team to a new office or you have another five years on a lease, what are you to do to keep your employees happy?


    SMALL SPACES, BIG IMPACT

    Creating a private space or two in an open office environment will allow employees to take a much needed break, if needed, from others. One idea is to create a quiet room and if adding walls to your office environment isn't feasible, the 3120 Extra Heavy Duty Curtain Track can be your solution. Available in silver or black anodized aluminum, it has a thicker top wall for added support. Add 7140 Double Wheel or 7146 Short Snap Carriers, sound absorbing curtains, a couple extra comfy chairs to the space, and you have created an area where members of your team can take a quick break. This same concept works if you are looking to create a small meeting space.


    THE SKY'S THE LIMIT

    Don't be frustrated with your office space. There are many options when it comes to creating an environment that allows for team work but also permits private spaces. Our team is here to help. For more ideas for your workplace, check out these blog posts.

    Hotel Meeting Rooms

    CONTINUING EDUCATION

    Hotels are often a host venue for business meetings as well as professional development such as continuing education courses and workshops. They are convenient locations for events like these because guests can stay overnight then simply walk to the meeting room for their course.

    BARE ESSENTIALS

    Oftentimes, hotel meeting rooms aren't very fancy. They usually have tables set in rows, a table or bar area for coffee and water, and a screen at the front that the instructor can use while presenting. Sometimes these rooms have large windows that look out towards a pool area or even a road. This is when room darkening curtains and curtain tracks come in. Hotel meeting rooms almost always have curtains to cover the windows for a couple reasons.

    1. They are room darkening. This is especially important when the instructor is presenting a PowerPoint presentation and the room needs to be darkened for attendees to see the slides more clearly.

    2. Closing the curtains can prevent distractions. An all-day seminar is exhausting for anyone but add in distractions such as kids running and jumping into the pool, and well, that can be just plain depressing. Pulling the curtains closed can help avoid some of those distractions.



    HERE COME THE CURTAIN TRACKS

    When it comes to the best curtain tracks to use for a project like this, we offer a variety to accommodate your project. Ceiling mount curtain tracks are a great option when looking to cover large floor to ceiling windows. Ceiling mount curtain tracks can be mounted to the ceiling or other horizontal surfaces by screwing it directly into the ceiling through mounting holes. They can also be attached to the ceiling with specific ceiling mount hardware such as clips, clamps, brackets, or retainers. When it comes to curtains, you are sure to find a style and print that you love on our website.

    After you add curtains to match the decor of the room as well as a wand to pull the curtains open and closed to avoid getting dirty handprints on them, your meeting room is ready to go!

    The Importance Of Curb Appeal In Business

    THE DETAILS

    We hear a lot about curb appeal and how it is important for homeowners looking to sell their home. Realtors and even HGTV stress the importance of an attractive entryway, nice landscaping, and making sure even the littlest details are take care of, like the paint isn’t chipping around the front door.


    GAINING NEW CUSTOMERS

    Having nice curb appeal is also important for store owners and restaurant owners. According to the National Restaurant Association, there are 1+ million restaurants in the United States. That means restaurants have A LOT of competition. And while the quality of the food is of the upmost importance, with restaurants on every corner, getting new customers in the front door of the restaurant in the first place can be a challenge. This is when curb appeal is especially important.



    FINISHING TOUCHES

    We found this image of a restaurant owner who we think, did a great job with their curb appeal. Not only do they have welcoming bistro tables outside the restaurant, they also have an awning to give their establishment a quaint look. To top it all off, their windows have fantastic, eye-catching patterned curtains hung on curtain tracks. We are unsure if these curtains are on a ceiling mount curtain track or a wall mount track, or if they are plastic or aluminum. Regardless, the end result is very nice!


    Bon Appétit

    If you are a restaurant or retail owner and are looking for ways to create a great first impression for new customers, as well as returning ones, we suggest taking a fresh look at the outside of your establishment. Look at it with wide open eyes as if you were looking at it for the first time. What would you think? Is it welcoming? Then ask yourself, “What can I do to enhance the curb appeal?” Whether that be new signage, fresh landscaping or curtains in your windows, small changes can mean big results with customers.
