Curtain. Monday , July 09th , 2018 - 04:06:57 AM
You want the curtain design to complement the room rather than take away from it. You'll want to take a close look at the kind of window you have. Is your window, rectangular? Is it a large bay window? Size and shape can play a big factor in what kind of curtains you can hang up.After you have taken into account some of the above considerations, let you imagination run wild. Consider all different types of fabrics such as silk or lace. Consider hand sewing your own curtains. You can use a colorfast outliner pen to decorate sheer curtains or you can attach appliqués, stickers and other fabric shapes to enhance plain fabric. Peruse the arts and crafts store for endless inspiration.No matter what design you choose, you want the design to fit both your taste and your lifestyle. However, even with that being said, the times are always changing.
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.
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.
You may find that the owner will then let you take a set of curtains at a trial price. You then proceed to another store with the receipt and ask them to match the price. You may be surprised to learn that some stores will offer to sell you an entire set for that same price. Once you have purchased the set you can then take the trial set back to the original store and say that they were not the style that you wanted. You have now got the coverings you wanted at a nicely reduced price.
If you would like to have curtains with a more formal look, look for French pleats. These look extremely stylish. It also allows the curtain to fall straight. You can also try box pleats particularly if what you have is a thin fabric.Nowadays, insulated curtains are very famous. These curtains are great for blocking sunlight. These are heavier as compared to the usual curtains.Another drapery approach is the use of panels. Decorate the panels using ornate rings, valances and curtain rods. You may also go for lace or sheer curtains if you want the transparent and dim lights filtering into your curtains.
Map-lovers rejoice; they're out there. World maps in modern form or vintage, maps of individual American states-touristy or not-and the entire United States, show up online. Large city plats of London, Paris, New York and many others are also on the market. One particularly charming United States map is a black and white outline so that the \"states I've visited\" can be colored in. Kids will like it and adults who may not admit it will like it, too.
