The main advantage of hanging your curtain on a track is that it can be shaped to fit the exact shape of your windows for example, bay windows. We only use metal tracks as they are far more robust than the plastic ones. If you are having bespoke made-to measure curtains, typically the weight of these will not work on a plastic track. We will measure up carefully to ensure that the track fits your window perfectly.
Tracks which overlap in the centre, where the two curtains meet, are particularly useful for keeping out draughts. If you wish to hide the track there are several options. A valance can be made to match the curtains and this is hung an additional, integrated rail which sits in front of the curtain track. Alternatively, we are able to design and make a fabric covered pelmet in a complementary style.
By installing a track with a corded closing system, the curtains can be drawn without touching them. We even have motorised closing systems with timers for when you are away or just want the house cosy after work.
In awkward situations, you may require a ceiling mounted curtain track, swing arms for dormer windows or door rods for a curtain to cover your external doors. Changing Views are happy to give you advice on all these decisions.
