I'm wondering whether it is better to install the curtain from ceiling height or follow the window height? In your 1st photo, it's window height while the 2nd photo is ceiling height.

There's a few factor that determine whether to go for Full height or window height curtain installation.

1.Air cond mounting on top of windows
For instance in the 1st photo, (project from Setia Ecohill Semenyih) The air cond piping was located right on top of the window making full height curtain impossible.
Owner hv no choice but to go for window height.

2.Fabric width
In some case, Full Height curtains could result in more fabric being used to produce a curtain depending on big is your window, SOme fabric comes in 125' inch width.
If your ceiling is extremely high, chances if you either spend more on the fabric or go with a window height due to fabric width limitations. .

1 of the recent question i got from PM is :
Which should i choose?? Blackout and Dimout curtain?

BLACKOUT curtains are fabrics that block out 100% of lights emitting through the fabric. Blackout curtains are typically found in Hotel, Cinema and convention centre. Blackout curtains are typically heavier and denser and to certain extent, help reduce the echo inside a room. It is also very popular among the current home owners as it blockout significant amount of heat from sun that radiates through the window, trapping the heat between the window and curtain.

Dimout curtains on the other hand are fabrics that is not classified as blackout and is one that will allow a certain amount of light through. It ranges from being very sheer to something that blocks 80% of the light. Dimout fabrics helps diffuse light from the sun and giving a warm and vibrant settings to the house. However, it is not very effective in heat insulation.

There's not 1 size fits all solution in this case. It really depends on the application and the effect home owners wants to achieve on the unit. It is worth to note that majority of my clients are more inclined towards blackout curtain as its more practical (heat insulation) compared to dimout curtain. .


cheers,
BlindMan. .

According to some home owners, they complained blackout curtain cannot be wet wash, it can only be dry wash. Hotels do not wash the curtain, they just throw away and change new ones every year or so.

If the fabric contain less than 20% cotton then it's safe for wet wash. Most blackout curtain are made of polyester. Wet wash is ok for polyester and will not shrink your fabric.

I already made a curtain with normal, cheap hook-design. Can you change it to more durable design as I found that it easily broken from the rail with minimal force.

I dont mind changing the railing as well.

Recently I received many inquiry whether to go for Curtains or BLinds for their homes.

As a general guideline, curtains are commonly installed in Living and Master bedroom as it give a soft touch to the area. Blinds such as Sunscreen/blackout blinds are commonly found in Study room and kitchen area.

In recent years, i see there's growing demand of blinds such as zebra and triple shade blinds ahead of curtains. Users tend to opt for ease of maintenance over aesthetic value of curtains. Design of blinds is also getting more versatile and diverse making it more competitive against curtains.


If you hv difficulty in choosing between both, here's some things you should consider before going for your purchase. .

1. Durability.
Blinds are generally more durable than curtains
2 Maintenance
Blinds are easy to maintained vs curtains
3. Aesthetic value
Curtain trumps blinds in the aspect. Curtains designs are better than blinds,though there's more blinds design coming out in recent years.
4. Affordability
BLinds are slight cheaper than curtain. Then again, it depends on what blinds materials you choose too! it can be expensive too. .
5. Place of application
If it's a cooking area, it's best to go for a roller blinds.


Cheers,

Blind more cheaper? Last I check curtain more cheap. Btw, please quote me the price for the blind as follows:

1) Window: 160cm (W) x 160cm (H)
2) Window: 138cm (W) x 138 cm (H)

Do you provide installation service at Sg Buloh?
