Published August 18, 2023

Little did all they know, there are many accessories available that can enhance their functionality and appearance when it comes to curtains. Two of the most popular curtain accessories are pelmets and tracks. In this article, we’ll be discussing these two accessories and their benefits to help you make an informed decision when choosing your curtain accessories.

Curtain Pelmet

A curtain pelmet is a decorative board that’s installed above your curtains. It’s available in various materials like timber, metal, or fabric, and it provides a sleek and polished look to your window treatment. It provides additional insulation and blocks out light and noise. Not just that: it also enhances the appearance of your curtains.

Benefits of Curtain Pelmet:

  1. Insulation: Curtain pelmets create a barrier between the window and the room, which helps to prevent drafts and keeps your room warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
  2. Light and Noise Blocking: Curtain pelmets help to block out light and noise, making your room more comfortable and conducive to sleep.
  3. Aesthetic Appeal: Curtain pelmets add a touch of elegance and sophistication to your room, giving it a finished look.


Curtain Tracks

Curtain tracks are another popular accessory for curtains. They’re installed above the window, and they allow the curtains to glide smoothly and effortlessly when opened or closed. Curtain tracks are available in various materials like aluminium or plastic, and they come in different styles like single or double tracks.

Benefits of Curtain Tracks:

  1. Easy Operation: Curtain tracks make it easy to open and close your curtains, providing convenience and comfort.
  2. Smooth Movement: Curtain tracks allow your curtains to move smoothly and effortlessly, eliminating the need to yank or pull on them.
  3. Aesthetic Appeal: Curtain tracks provide a streamlined and modern look to your window treatment, giving it a neat and polished appearance.
