Curtain. Saturday , June 23rd , 2018 - 05:54:53 AM
Television and film scenes, logos and stars show up on shower curtains both from inside and outside of Hollywood. It must be very pleasant to walk into the bathroom every morning and see a favorite film star looking back at you.The entire poem, \"The Raven,\" by Edgar Allan Poe, is printed out across the whole of the shower curtain in one case, possibly to appeal to fans of Poe or poetry. Who knows what other literary examples are splashed across other curtains?Victorian wallpaper designs, mermaids, large O'Keefe-like flowers, spooky mansions and checkerboard designs are other options for the shower. Sports equipment, scenes of sports events and team logos are not rare, and yes, there is a trout-skin print in natural trout colors; not the whole fish, just the skin. It was surprising to find a poem about bacon, the meat, on one curtain.
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.
Making your own curtains is not a difficult job at all. You do not need to have great sewing skills for making them. Fabric of your choice can be bought on sale. But, while buying the fabric, you should choose the color and design that goes well with the existing decor of your walls as well as the windows. According to the size of the windows, you can make these cheap curtains but they should fit exactly to the windows. Even if the windows are of non-standard sizes, it is not a problem. You should take measurements of the windows and get the curtains done. You can also use a nice and attractive bed sheet as a curtain. A table cloth can also be tried if it fits well to the window. Especially, for wide windows, you can buy a wide bed sheet on sale and convert it into a curtain. Bed sheets and table cloths have already finished edges and hence just sewing a pocket at their tops is enough to use them as curtains. Two fabric panels can also be sewn together to make them into a wide curtain. If you buy fabrics with patterns that suit the existing decor of the home, they can also enhance the appearance of the windows and rooms.
A simpler and less expensive choice is to hang a regular curtain rod beginning at the outer corners of the windows at each end of the bay window bank. The curtains in the room will form a flat drapery in any style you choose quite easily, but you do cut off a small part of useful room space, and you lose the bay window charm unless the drapes are pulled. When this simple solution is combined with attractive blinds or shades, it can still be elegant and lovely and easier to afford and to set up.
Violet colored draperies are also perfect for a little girl's room. Imagine decorating a room for a little girl with shades of lavender and having iridescent, lilac colored curtains. For a softer, more country looking style, you could choose fabrics that are light colored but have small lavender flower prints on them. These would also be excellent for kitchens that are decorated in a country style. Older girls in their teen years may appreciate designs that are slightly edgier. One way to introduce a more whimsical style to an otherwise boring room is to install amethyst colored vintage curtains or vintage inspired curtains. These can be used to create a retro vibe, which is very popular with the younger generations. One benefit of buying vintage window treatments is that you can often find them on sale at garage sales or in thrift shops for nominal prices, making them both economical and stylish.
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.
