There are instances in which it may seem that, for whatever reason, your current curtains will have to be replaced with a brand new set. However, before you rush to the store and throw out your beloved existing curtains, consider affordable alterations in Seattle, WA that may allow your curtains to be tailored for use in a new situation. Here are a few instances in which consulting with an alteration service before throwing in the towel could be helpful.
Moving to a new home
Moving to a new home is one of the main situations in which people automatically assume they will have to get rid of their old curtains and purchase a new set. In many cases, though, it might end up being cheaper to have your curtains altered than it would be to buy something brand new. After you have measured the size of your new windows, alterations specialists can either shorten or lengthen your curtains, or bring them in to fit a narrower window. In addition to saving money, you will be able to bring your curtains with you to serve as a comforting reminder of your old home as you try to get settled in new surroundings.
A remodel is the perfect time for a change
Similar to moving, if you have a large-scale remodel planned in your home and some of your window sizes will be changing, alterations to your curtains could be the solution. If you are not ready to give up on your old curtains completely, but would like to update their style a bit, a remodel is the perfect time to make changes. Adding lining through alterations can change the way that your curtains hang, giving them the appearance of a completely different set.
Other alterations to the heading of the curtains can shorten and change the look drastically, working in tandem with your overall remodel to create a brand new look for any room. The result will be a room that feels new again, giving you a fresh take on old styles, all while staying within your budget.
Repurposing old curtains for new uses
If you are now an empty nester, why not take the opportunity to redesign your child’s old room so that it is more in line with the décor in the rest of your home? By altering the size and breaking the fabric down into smaller panels, you can make several curtain sets out of one large paneled curtain. You can then use the curtains in multiple rooms, creating uniformity in the décor throughout your home.
