Curtain. Monday , July 09th , 2018 - 04:05:12 AM
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.
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.
New styles turn your curtains into focal points in your decor. Asian curtains, for example, bring a touch of the Eastern culture into your house. Whether your decor is modern or classic, these beautifully designed curtains become as important in the balance of your living room or bedroom as a wall hanging or a piece of art. The White Bonzai Faux Silk Bamboo Design Rod Pocket Curtain, for example, has a feel of real silk, and depicts a design of bamboo. The overall effect is stunning.
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.
Depending on your home's architecture, you can go for a beaded curtain, sheer window curtain, ceiling-mounted curtain, tab top curtain, arched curtain, insulated curtain or casual swag over-rods. Modern treatments include various kinds of drapery styles and panels. Curtain rods, hold-backs, tie-backs and tassels add to the attractiveness of the treatment.
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.
