Where to buy curtains?
There are many shops and online stores where you can buy curtains in South Africa, including Gumtree where you can find curtains and blinds for homes and patios.
How long should curtains be?
Curtains should just touch the floor or hover just shy of it. If you have a kitchen window that requires cafe curtains, they should just hit the base of the windowsill.
What curtains are best to block out heat?
If you are looking to block out the summer heat and lock in the warmth in winter, then the best curtains to look for are blackout curtains. You will need to look at fabric type and colour; curtains that are medium-coloured with white blackout lining offer maximum effect. They also help with stifling outside noise.
How to clean blinds?
Depending on the type of blinds you have installed, the process might be slightly different, but with vinyl, aluminium and wood blinds you start by fully lowering the blinds, and then you dust both sides with a microfibre cloth or old sock. You can also use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment, which is how you begin cleaning fabric shades. If the blinds are really dirty, you can use a damp microfibre cloth with some dishwashing liquid to spot clean.
How to install blinds?
It is always best to follow the installation guide that is provided with your blinds, but, generally, you will need a drill and drill bit, a screwdriver, a pencil and metal measuring tape. You will get brackets and screws plus plugs with your blinds. Your brackets will either be face or recess mounted, dependent on what you selected when you ordered. Measure and mark before you drill the holes. Insert the plugs and then screw in the screw with the brackets. You will then clip on the blinds, making sure that the blind cord and tilt cord collar face outwards.
