Working with a limited budget or need something to cover your windows quickly? You can find a great solution in the form of Ready Made Curtains. In Singapore and other large cities, they are available in a wide range of sizes and designs to suit any needs. Here’s what you need to know before you start browsing and get overwhelmed by the choices.
What are Ready Made (or Ready to Hang) Curtains?
As the name suggests, Ready Made Curtains are curtains that have been fully made. Since they can be hung straight on the window, they are also called Ready to Hang Curtains. Basically, you can buy and install them the very same day as they lack motorized parts. And they usually come with a set standard size, so you can easily find a replacement in the same store.
Ready Made Curtains are available in a wide range of price points — from low budget options through to the top of the range. With their stunningly huge range of colours, materials, patterns, textures, and styles, these curtains can indeed make a statement in any style of home. You can get them from craft and homewares stores, department stores, hardware stores, and specialist curtain suppliers.
Considerations for Choosing Ready to Hang Curtains?
There are some things that you must not overlook when choosing Ready Made Curtains. The first and most important is making sure that they fit the window(s) that you will be using them on! Do this by measuring your windows before you go to the store.
Certain types of curtains can only be used with certain types of rods. So make sure you know the kind of curtains rod you have and what type of curtains would go with it. Your most common choices in ready made curtains are eyelet, pencil pleat and tab top. Ask your sales assistant for advice if you are not sure whether your curtains and rods match. Taking some photographs would be recommended for clarity.
Another thing that you have to consider is what kind of room ambiance you hope to achieve. How much light do you want to enter and how much privacy you wish to have. Do you need to block out particularly harsh sunlight? Will the curtains be exposed to the elements?
All these questions will help you determine the best Ready Made Curtains to buy. In Singapore, you may want to choose heavier sunblock curtains and weather-resistant materials — depending on where you install them. In some cases, a combination may work best — such as delicate sheers underneath for daytime and thicker curtains over the top for when the light goes out.
