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.
Apart from being a great place to get ideas, the Internet is also the place to get the best prices on a variety of curtain types. Whether you're looking for lined curtains, sheer curtains or just traditional curtain panels you really can't go wrong by heading online. While you're likely to find some basic curtain styles at your local retailer, there is just no comparison with the number of options you're likely to encounter online. The reason is that there are so many different retailers that specialize in only curtains, meaning you can get what you want at the price you're looking for.
Since there are several kinds of cloth and designs out in the market, set aside some time to come up with a decision. Several drapes may look splendid but it's equally vital to check if it will look great in your house. Choose a fabric that complements your home decorations.
Pictures of books, cultural symbols and animals can be found in completely realistic form rather than abstract shapes. Abstract shapes abound as well, and there really are colors that are not seen often in nature or anywhere else.
The final part to try to decide is that of the curtain hardware. Many think of curtain rods as something of an afterthought. The reality is your choice of curtain hardware can say just as much as the curtains. Choosing the right rod can really accent great curtains but also can totally take away from what otherwise would be a nice look. Be sure to think through your choice as replacing rods can be expensive and time consuming. However ultimately if you can find a nice marriage between your curtain ideas and your curtain hardware you will be in great shape.
Another thing you can do is create curtains with bed sheets. A nice, ironed navy blue bed sheet with a curtain rod sewn to the end will make a great window covering. Just make sure you leave some extra linen together with the rod to allow enough room for gathering. After you hang the sheet on the window, you can purchase snowflake stickers at a greeting card or general store to place on top of the linens. Wintery snowflakes in glittery silver and white will give a nice winter-wonderland look to windows.
First however, you must think about how the rest of your home will go with the design. For instance, if you have a Victorian style home, you'll most likely want to get curtains that are more in a Victorian style or that maybe have designs that lean more towards the Victorian era. If you have a room that is more contemporary, maybe minimalist designs will work for you. A plain pole could be a great start for a room that has little to no elaborate décor. Once you begin with the plain pole, you can start to hang up all kinds of curtains from frilly designs to the more solid colored curtains. Rooms that are more contemporary can benefit greatly from a bit of color here or there.
