With central urban living on the rise, many city developers are renovating old buildings into loft apartments. Modern and new structures are being built to accommodate the trend as well. Shopping for window treatments for these spaces can be an overwhelming task and leave the city dwellers completely frustrated when they can’t find ready-made window treatments available on the market. Too big, too small, too casual, too fancy, and sometimes too expensive as well, it seems there are too many choices and yet none will do.
One way to leave the quandary behind is to do something altogether different and make your own. Hardware made from chain link fence rails and industrial handrail brackets goes perfectly with modern architecture or a downtown loft. Curtains made from canvas or drop cloths will not break the bank and they are easy to make and maintain. No need for fancy finials. Fence rail connector sleeves add the finishing touches, covering any mistakes in cutting or rough edges. Since you’ll be making your own canvas curtains, you can place your curtain rods at the desired level and then make your curtains accordingly. Hinged rings provide sturdy attachments. They aid in the ease of pulling the drapes and they allow for quick removal for laundering. The great thing about fence rails is they are rigid pipes for cheap. They are perfect for long spans and they aren’t likely to bend in the middle as conventional curtains rods might. By using these unique materials, you’ll be cutting costs without sacrificing style.
