The first step when choosing curtains for your home concerns choosing the fabric and pattern that you want to match, according to your tastes, with the rest of the furniture. Then you will have to choose the right solution for the installation of our curtains from many solutions and models. In addition to the conventional cane, in this we want to guide you towards the solution that meets your needs by listing some Mottura solutions.
Gathered with ropes or velcro
This system is among the most traditional even if today we find modern and highly performing solutions. This mechanism involves the insertion of the curtain in sliding clamps and is activated by means of drive cords in parallel or independent channels, allowing, depending on the models, the creation of 90 ° curved or wide radius curved systems. This system is suitable for ceiling and wall installations. We also find the same mechanism in the "tear-off" mode. Also in this case the awning travels on special tracks but instead of being operated by the ropes it is pulled by hand.
Roman blinds are very practical and take up little space. There are different types, adapting to classic or modern environments and they can be mounted on the window frame or both on the ceiling and on the wall with snap supports that facilitate the removal of the profile.
The awning is operated by means of ø 1 mm polyethylene cords and locking with manually operated front stop. Some systems are equipped with grommets with wheels, specific for the construction of curved systems, both 90 ° and wide radius and arched. The use of the tilting stop also allows the creation of inclined systems.
Panel curtains are in most cases the right choice. They are particularly suitable for modern style furnishings and are easy to install. With the panel curtain it is possible to cover any size you need, even if it is a maxi glass wall.
As the name suggests, panel curtains are made up of two or more fabric panels that slide on guide channels; in the lower edge of each panel, in a special fabric pocket, an aluminum bar is inserted which, acting as a weight, ensures that the fabric falls correctly and does not flutter at the slightest air flow. The opening / closing movement of the Roman blind can be manual, corded or motorized. Panel curtains can be applied to glass, ceiling or wall.
Often used and appreciated for large windows, panel curtains are also used for windows. In this case they can be long to the ground or short. The advantage of short curtains is that they allow you to furnish the area below the window or not to cover the radiator / radiator, so as not to compromise its efficiency (for excellent energy efficiency, the radiators in operation must not be covered by curtains, leaning furniture or cloths).
Roller blinds (and Frames Mottura roller blinds)
This type of curtain is composed of a roller around which the curtain fabric will be wound manually, by pulling a chain, or with the support of a small motor, in the case of an electric curtain. In the upper part of some models there could also be a small box (Frames - Mottura) which contains and screens the roller where the awning is rolled up.
For an optimal effectiveness of the roller blind, or to ensure that it perfectly shields the eternal light, its fabric must fall parallel to the window, well stretched, thanks also to a small metal rod inserted in the lower edge. This will keep it straight and aligned with the window. It is an excellent solution to choose for both home and office.
The pleated blinds give elegance to any environment they are installed: they are made of fabric with regular horizontal folds, inserted into an aluminum base. The great advantage of this type of curtains is that when they are closed they prevent you from seeing through the glass, guaranteeing privacy, but at the same time letting the light filter through. Once folded, the pleated blind almost completely disappears from view, making the environment very bright, without taking up space.
The fabrics chosen for the curtains are generally light to promote a feeling of airiness. The curtains are inserted in a supporting structure made of light material; handling can be by rope, handle or double handle. The technology has then allowed the creation of motorized blinds that can be operated with the remote control.
The installation of pleated blinds is quite simple: they adapt to different types of windows and French doors, and are applied directly to the doors of the frames.
Venetian blinds are made up of thin or flat horizontal slats, of aluminum or other materials, held suspended by special ropes, which keep them spaced at regular intervals along the entire length of the window.
They can be raised or lowered easily and tilted for easy control over the level of privacy and the amount of light to enter the room.
Venetian blinds are simple to use, and were usually raised and lowered using traction cords and inclined with ropes or rods, but currently we find many other innovative solutions on the market, such as remote controlled automatic handling systems. Mottura offers a wide range of solutions, including motorized ones. Versatile and practical, Venetian blinds are available in a wide range of sizes and colors, but for something truly original and elegant we recommend VeniWood, Mottura's Venetian blinds with wooden slats.
