A home is a place where we can feel happiness and be together with our family. A place where we can build memories and feel at ease after a long day thus, it is important that the ambiance would make you feel your hair down. For this to happen, we decorate our homes to entertain not only our eyes but also the people who would be coming to visit us.

There are types of people who wanted to have their house be constructed with glass doors and glass windows so they can feel and be one with nature at any time of the day. However, there are certain times of the day in which the sun would rise so high and its light would enter the house which we find glaring. To avoid this to happen, we choose to make use or install blind to our windows and doors to protect us from the strong light of the sun.

There are various types of blinds that could suit your taste and interior design including the colors of the wall that we can choose from different online shops and physical stores. You can check on inexpensive blinds look at this web-site. Or you may also create your own kind of blinds to decor your windows and doors.

Of course, if your main purpose of having glass windows and doors would be to become one with nature then it also means that you are an advocate in using eco-friendly materials at home. It undeniable that most materials are made up of plastic which we know for a fact is harmful to our environment.

Instead of purchasing blinds, why not create your own using resources that can be found at home? You can not only save money and be creative from it but also you will help in reducing plastic usage. 

Steps To Make Inexpensive Curtains

First, measure the width and length of the window or door you want to cover using a measuring tape.

Second, look for fabric which you are no longer in use or something stocked for a long time then determine its width measurement and lining. Now let us do the math. You have to get the sum of the window width and the seam allowance then divide it with the fabric width. If you get an answer with a decimal, you would need to round it off. Whatever the result would be that would be the number of panels you would need to have for your customize blinds. For instance, if the answer is 4.2 then round it off 5.

Third, using fabric scissors cut the known number of fabric and lining then join them by sewing together in lengthwise the panels of fabric and lining. Be attentive on how you sew them. Make sure that the fabric is laid flat right side up while the lining is over the fabric with right side down. Edges of both fabric and lining must be aligned.

Fourth, cut all bottom corners in a 45-degree angle then sew the bottom edges. After, insert a dowel, which could be a peg of wood, inside the stitching of the bottom rows and flip the blind inside out. Making sure that the sides of the blind on the right are facing outwards.

Fifth, mark the folds using a pencil, a ruler and a tape measure. You have to mark it with horizontal lines that spaced equally. Keep in mind that the lines you create must have from 8-12 inches space in between.

Sixth, make the pockets and attach it between those horizontal lines you have created. Slide the peg of wood into each pocket. Attach the rings and then sew both ends.

Lastly, attach the fabric fastener, the eyelets and the cord like a hemp cord in order for you to hang the blinds on your chosen window or door.
