Curtain Top Treatments, Hems & Extras
You'll need to select a top treatment for your curtains. You might choose a pin stitched hem a well. A basic rod pocket top and blind hem are included in the labor cost for a curtain panel. If you are using your own hardware, we will want to know the diameter of your rod. To calculate how many rings or tabs you will need, figure one every 6 inches plus 1 extra at the end, or contact us for assistance.
Rings, Tabs, and Pinch pleats
Tabs are a good finish foreliminating some bulk on the curtain rod. They enable you to open your curtains more than a simple rod pocket. Tabs are 3/4" wide and 1 1/2" face length & are spaced approximately 6" apart. Of course, we do custom tabs in any width or length at no extra charge. All tabs are $2.00 per tab.
With or without pleats, rings eliminate the most bulk on the rod and are the best choice to clear your curtains well off your windows for maximum light. All our hardware have rings available to fit the rods. Small eyelet rings for 3/8" rod are $1.70 including sewing. Other rings are priced separately from sewing. We space rings approximately 6" apart and we will also sew your own rings on for you for $1.35 per ring.
Single or double (depending on fullness) pinch-pleats will control fullness for even less bulk on rods. Rings are extra but drapery hooks are included. Pleating costs $30.00 per panel, not including sewing on rings.
**A note one hems: We also can use a plain invisible machine hem stitch (as you would see on a skirt or pants) for both bottom and side finishes.
