New Home, New Look For Your Windows

SHINY AND NEW

Oftentimes when you move into a new house the window treatments stay. Perhaps it’s because they match the current wall color and the sellers think the new owners will love the existing decor and style and won’t want to make any changes. But more often than not, those curtains/blinds/valences and curtain rods come down to make way for something new. If this is the case for you and your new home, may we suggest something? We suggest replacing those old, tired curtains and rods with a sleek, durable curtain track and panels that actually match your design style.



FROM CURTAIN RODS TO CURTAIN TRACKS

A curtain track has many benefits including it can be mounted to the wall or the ceiling. Not only that, a track is sturdy and welcomes the frequent opening and closing of curtains. A curtain rod isn’t always so durable. How many times have you seen a curtain rod ripped out of the wall because someone was just a bit too rough when pulling the curtains closed? When this happens, you not only have to replace the rod, you also have some drywall repair that needs to be done. Curtain tracks are attached to the wall or ceiling at multiple points making it extra strong and reliable. Plus, our curtain carriers are made for these tracks so you are getting the best of the best.



CURTAIN CHOICES

When it comes to curtain selection, stick with the theme of high quality by purchasing curtains that not only look good but can withstand repeated use. We offer a wide selection of fabrics to match any décor, plus all of our fabrics are fire retardant and machine washable. Whether you are looking for blackout curtains, ripplefold curtains, or fabric that looks like linen, with Curtain-Tracks, you have options.

Don’t settle for some other homeowner's design style, make your own statement on your new home by starting with your windows. We can help!

Chateau Privacy Curtains-Low Maintenance AND Good Looking


APRIL SHOWERS

Spring has sprung, which has many of us thinking about spring cleaning. Our first project at Curtain-Tracks was to update our website. If you haven’t already checked it out, you really should. It’s pretty spiffy! We hope you’ll be impressed by the clean lines and simple layout.

The next project on our spring to do list was to bring in new products. The first to highlight is going to be a customer favorite because of it’s versatility and durability. It’s time to introduce...drumroll please… Chateau Privacy Curtains. This fabric is part of our privacy curtain line, which means they can be used in homes, offices, hospitals, medical facilities, and just about anywhere you need a little seclusion.


WHO HAS TIME FOR THAT?

Our Chateau Privacy Curtains are soft and have a linen appearance, making them the perfect choice for your spring spruce up project. The look of linen has a natural depth and beauty that breathes a little bit of fresh air into the space. However, linen is difficult to care for. Real Simple’s Fabric 101 Guide recommends hand washing in cold water, letting it air dry, and ironing it. Ain’t nobody got time for that! We believe your décor, whether in a clinic, hospital or office space, should look good but also be easily maintained. Enter Chateau Privacy Curtains - giving homeowners the look of linen, with way less work because it is made of 100% polyester and is machine washable.


STRONG AND PRETTY

Not only is the fabric easy to maintain, but they are nearly indestructible. From the seams to the grommets, this product is a customer favorite because of their durability. The header of these curtains is reinforced with three layers of fabric and another layer of mesh. Talk about strong! The seams and hems are secured using Safe-T-Stiches so you don’t have to worry about ugly stray strings hanging out or a hem falling to the ground. The Chateau Privacy Curtain is hung with strong grommets made of rust proof nickel plated brass rings. The cherry on the top is that these curtains are flame retardant and meet NFPA 701 and CA Fire Marshal Title 19 requirements.

Available in 19 different colors, they are pretty enough to work in the home or business, but they are durable enough to stand up to the use of a medical facility as well. Plus, they are affordable allowing you to stay on budget.


ACTION ITEMS

If you are installing these curtains in a business or medical facility, be sure to check with your local fire code you needs these curtains with or without mesh to ensure compliance. Next, give us a call to request a sample color because the images online may differ slightly from the actual color. We are happy to send out a sample, though. Just give us a call at 1-888-434-7444.

Curtains Aren't Just For Windows Anymore


DIFFERENT IS GOOD

Over the years we have talked to customers who have used curtain tracks and curtains in a variety of ways. In fact, we have an entire category on our blog dedicated to this very topic. So if you are feeling like you are in a creative rut, keep reading, and we will share some fun uses for our products.


BEDROOMS, BASEMENTS AND GARAGES

Finding another use for a product, other than the one it was originally created for, can be fun and functional. We have had customers use our curtain tracks, hardware and accessories in ways that you wouldn't even imagine and we think the results are pretty fantastic. One such design idea includes using curtains and curtain tracks along a bedroom wall. The floor-to-ceiling lush fabric of the curtains creates a beautiful backdrop that also serves as a headboard and the focus when you walk in the room is immediately drawn to this focal point.



Another Curtain-Tracks customer, Carrie, used the 6100 Flexible Curtain Track to create a sound booth in her basement. With her career taking off and the opportunity to work from home, she wanted to create a sound booth that not only looked good, but also worked well. Her basement has a drop ceiling, so installation was quite easy with the use of drop ceiling clamps. To ensure the curtains would stay closed when she is recording and to help eliminate distractions, she made sure the lead carrier on each panel is a magnetic catch carrier that holds the curtains together with just a bit of overlap, which also helps keep out sound.



Another completely unique use for curtain tracks includes a project that customer, Libby, completed in her garage a while ago. She wanted to create a hockey backstopfor her kids so she used Curtain-Tracks Extra Heavy Duty track and heavy duty trolly, aka super strong carrier, and a durable tarp. Now she has the coolest garage in the neighborhood!


WHAT WILL YOU DO?

These are just a few fun examples of how you can use Curtain-Tracks products for your next project. There are so many other creative uses, including concealing a water heater, adding curtain tracks to a golf cart or creating an art station or art gallery. Have you used our products in a unique way?

Curtains and Drop Ceilings: Easy Installation and Many Uses

Installing a drop ceiling is a great way to hide an existing ceiling that isn’t aesthetically pleasing, and create a cozy feeling in a room, but it can make hanging curtains a challenge, but certainly not impossible.

Hanging Curtains on Tall Windows

We’re not going to lie, decorating tall windows can be intimidating. Two-story and other tall windows are becoming common features of roomy, modern homes, but are a challenge for hanging window treatments. We’ve noticed that some home owners simply give up without hanging anything. This approach will certainly put you in the clean, simple, modern design category, but may also push you right into the stark, sterile, and cold category. You’ve got to warm up those windows with some curtains.

Curtains That Keep The Light Out

KEEP THE LIGHT OUT

Eclipse Curtains have many features including blocking out 98% of light, absorbing sound, conserving energy and they are color rich on both sides of each panel. In a downtown Boston hotel, we saw some great looking eclipse curtains but the hotel was located very close to a neighboring hotel. If you wanted any natural light in your room during the day, you had to leave the curtains open which meant you might end up staring at a neighbor in the hotel next door. This hotel did it right though - they came up with a solution that allowed for eclipse curtains (block light, absorb sound and look great) plus they added a thin shade to the window.

A THIN SHADE

During the day, the shade could be pulled down allowing in light but also provide just enough shade so you didn’t have to check out your next door neighbors. Besides providing privacy, a thin shade can also be used to keep a room cool when the hot afternoon sun streams in. But if you love the look and functionality eclipse curtains provide, you can do both. We have a wide selection of eclipse available to complete the look of your room. Our curtains are machine washable and 100% flame retardant. These extremely durable curtains are available in a variety of heights and widths and you can choose from 28 different colors.

CHOICES

When it comes to your windows, you don’t have to be committed to just one look - you can do both! Contact us an we can help you with your project!

Hanging Two Curtains With Double Wall Brackets

TWO IS BETTER THAN ONE

Softening the look of a room by adding lush curtains is great but adding sheer panels is even better! When you want to hang two sets of curtains, the 84172 Double Wall Bracket is your best friend. This bracket system allows you to install two parallel tracks making it a perfect solution when adding sheers, plus curtains, to your windows.


Aug 1, 2017 11:15:41 PM

ONE - TWO PUNCH

The 84172 Extra Long Double Bracket allows for two of our 84003 Ball-Bearing Curtain Tracks to be installed in parallel, can be mounted with up to a 4 inch clearance between tracks and needs 6 1/2 inch wall clearance for the outer track. This wall bracket is sold individually and is available in silver or white. Please note that mounting screws are not included with this bracket.

In a previous blog post, we shared the advantages of the 84172 Double Wall Bracket. "Our double wall brackets are similar to a double-rod system with one HUGE advantage: the brackets don’t interfere with the movement of the curtains. These brackets hold the track above the carriers, allowing them to slide right under. This is particularly important if you are covering a large area or a whole wall. With rods you would have to create a curtain panel for each section of the rod (and you will have several sections if the area is wide), but with curtain tracks you can cover the whole wall with one large curtain if you want to."


DOUBLE DOWN

Once you have your wall brackets and tracks installed, you can add your curtains. We can help with that, too! We offer a wide variety of curtains to fit almost any style, including a wide selection of Eclipse Light-Blocking Curtains available to over 35 colors and varying lengths and widths. If you are looking for ideas and inspiration for your project, contact our Customer Service Team or visit us on Pinterest.

Enhancing The Look Of A Banquet Hall With Curtains

CHECK OUT THAT VIEW

Banquet halls are often used to host weddings, receptions, business luncheons, formal dinners, and so much more. We recently attended a business luncheon in a banquet center near a major city and were quite impressed with the facility as well as the view. The main room had floor to ceiling windows boasting a fantastic view of a river and the city. They also had floor to ceiling curtains hung on ceiling mount curtain tracks. The curtains were held open with tie-backs but could be pulled closed if the afternoon sun became unbearable in the room.

BREAK IT UP

We agree that a wall of floor to ceiling windows can be absolutely beautiful (especially with an amzaing view) but they can also come off as a bit stark. Adding curtains, even if there is no intention of ever closing them, can break up the large wall of windows and even soften the entire look of the room. This is especially effective when the function in the banquet hall is a beautiful wedding or reception. The curtains make the room feel more formal and luxurious, especially when they use high quality curtains.

WHAT DO YOU THINK?

What are your thoughts on adding curtain tracks and curtains to a room with an incredible view? Do you think it takes away from the city skyline or enhances the entire look of the room? Leave us a comment!
