Quick Tip: For those that don't like Tab Top Curtains

Tab top curtains tend to be less expensive than other options, but not many like these curtains because of the tabs at the top, so here's a solution to fix this.


When you are looking for new curtains for a room in your home, sometimes the options can be limited. But when you find the perfect curtain colour or design, the fact that they are tab top might put you off.







The problem with tab top curtains is that they don't pull nicely across a curtain pole and tend to clump up and stick, making you have to yank them to move them. Luckily, there is a solution to fix this, and it's an easy one that can be done without the need for a sewing machine.


Many times I have gone shopping only to find that the colour I want is only available in a tab top design. Bet you didn't know that there is a quick and easy solution! Curtain clips can be used instead of the tab top and let you open and close tab top curtains with ease.

Buy curtain clips at your nearest Builders store.

Karianne over at thistlewoodfarms provides a tutorial for removing tab tops and replacing them with curtain rings - what an excellent idea and an easy one too!







All you need to do is to cut off the tab tops and add curtain clips to the top edge of the curtain.

With this solution, you can have a much wider selection of window treatments to choose from when you decide it's time to replace your old ones.
