|Curtains - Double Tracks explained|
Michael takes you through the range of Sheer Curtain fabrics available on the iseekblinds website - Select a popular Linen look sheer or go for a more luxurious feel. The hard part will be deciding which one to choose. Fabrics by Warwick Fabrics, Nettex & Filigree.
Michael takes you through the difference between a room darkening fabric (up to 95 % room darkening) vs a blockout fabric (100% blockout) and demonstrates the amount of light that can come through for each range. He describes the benefits of a triple weave fabric and points out the importance of understanding what your curtain will look like from both inside and outside your home. Michael takes you through each of the blockout and room darkening fabric ranges available on the iseekblinds website.
In this short video, Michael explains the Sheer Curtains S-fold heading and takes you through the various opening options available.
Michael demonstrates the 3 track styles available for your Curtains. Select from the Standard track, Curved track or the more designer Round track. Understand the difference between a ceiling mounted sheer and a wall mounted sheer and which tracks to use for each.
Michael demonstrates how to combine a blockout or room darkening curtain with a sheer curtain. The blockout curtain sits at the rear, closest to the window and is made with a gathered heading style, whilst the sheer curtain, with an S-fold heading type is positioned at the front. The gathered heading on the blockout curtain reduces bulk at the top and ensures the curtains are kept as close to the wall as possible. Michael takes you through both the Ceiling and Wall mount track combinations and shows the double brackets. * The Double curtain products featured are Mikardo room darkening fabric in 'Cloud' and the S-fold sheer in Chios 'Mist'.
Michael explains what you need to do when measuring your windows for a Wall mounted curtain. He explains the use of the standard brackets and how they can be adjusted to come over the top of an architrave as well as the option for extension brackets if you are coming over the top of a roller blind or a greater obstruction to ensure your curtains hang perfectly every time.
Michael shows you how to install your curtain tracks for a wall mount. He describes the two types of brackets available - the standard bracket and the extension bracket. Use a stud finder to locate as much timber as possible to install your brackets. Ensure your brackets are evenly spaced and use a string line to make sure they are level. Then simply present your track to the brackets and clip them into place. It's that easy!
Michael takes you through all you need to know when it comes to measuring your windows for either a sheer curtain or a blockout curtain for a Ceiling mount, including Cornices.
Michael describes the two track options available for ceiling mounted curtains. He shows you how to attach the brackets to the track when preparing to install your curtain tracks into the ceiling. Ceiling mounts will either be installed into timber, or more commonly into plaster. Michael demonstrates how easy it is to use a hollow wall anchor to securely attach your track to the ceiling if mounting into plaster.
Now that your track is installed, Michael shows you how easy it is to hang your S-fold curtain. First fit your wand to the track, ensuring you leave the first runner free. Then attach the hooks provided onto your curtain tape. Now clip the hooks into the runners on the curtain track. Voila, your are finished!
Now that your track is installed, Michael shows you how easy it is to hang your blockout curtain with a gathered heading. First, fit your wand to the track. Evenly space your runners. The hooks are already positioned for you on your curtain, so now you simply just align and attach the hooks into the curtain runners. The number of hooks on your curtain will equally match the number of runners in your track. Too easy!
