If you don't fashion yourself as a master designer and don't have much in the way of hands on design experience, it's still possible to decorate your home with pre-made curtains. While it would be nice to design your own window treatments, making your own curtains is likely to be more trouble than it's worth, particularly if you have to struggle through the entire process due to a lack of experience. Not only can these curtains be purchased for much less than custom curtain options, but they also look quite professional. Another great thing about buying pre-fabricated curtains is that they are available in so many different styles and material options. Of course, there are some things you should know about buying curtains before just heading down to your local home improvement retailer.
Curtains for bay windows can be treated like any other as the simplest option when single windows are involved, with maybe mini blinds directly on the window part and the curtains flush with the walls. This of course will lose the effect of the window design and makes it hard to use the window box as a seat.Children may actually prefer the simple suggestion of regular curtains, since they can treat the space between the curtain and windowpanes as a tiny secret retreat. This also means a safety issue and parents wanting curtain ideas for bay window applications in a child's room will want safety latches and other reinforcements since children will often discover this option and play in the windows.
For those who love the convenience of shades but desire the ornate appeal of curtains, balloon curtains may be the answer. These shades are generally made of cotton or a cotton/polyester blend, and come in a vast variety of colors and designs. They feature one to four or five gathers at the bottom, so that when you open them (vertically as a shade), the material creates poufs between the gathers. The Balloon Fabric Shades have multiple gathers, creating a decorative row of poufs.
Another creative curtain idea is to use lace tablecloths as curtains. When you just can't find the right lace curtains in the curtain department, there's hope in the kitchen and dining room section! There, you should be able to find all kinds of beautiful lace tablecloths that you can sew to a rod and hang on your windows. You'll be surprised at how much this idea can really spruce up your home.
Decorating with shades of violet can be tricky since the color is so bold. Remember that the intensity of the color will be amplified when placed against any shade of yellow since they are opposite of one another on the color wheel. You can use this to your advantage if you have a large room where you need to chop up the space into more manageable areas. On the other hand, you can use a monochromatic color scheme where your draperies, walls, and fabrics are all of the same family for smaller rooms. Having matching colors will trick the eyes and the mind into perceiving more space.
There are also curtain systems for those who are handicapped or elderly living on their own. For some, simply opening and closing one's curtains each day can be a real challenge. Motorized curtains can ease at least that one issue. These systems will open and close your drapes with the touch of a remote control. Hang this as a replacement for traditional curtain rods, and you can usually use your own drapes, as long as the size is appropriate. The Remote Control Automatic Electrical Window Curtain Single Track Double Window is ideal for a large picture window or door wall.
