When you plan to have curtains for your windows, you should not think that they need to be expensive for enhancing the looks of your house. You can buy cheap curtains or make them on your own and with them, you can impress the visitors and guests with the enhanced beauty of your home. Therefore, if you think that a tight budget is a constraint to beautify your windows and home with curtains, you can not be more wrong. You should be a little creative for accomplishing this. You need not have great skills also for it nor do you need a lot of money. Ready curtain panels are available and you can get them. If you want to fashion them yourself according to your taste, that is also possible.
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.
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.
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.
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.
The curtains are the very things that call attention to your windows, one of your home's major sources of light. Those curtains need to look wonderful, inviting and vibrant. There's really no need to settle for the everyday curtain décor you find at your local store. There are all kinds of great curtain ideas out there.
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.
