Curtain. Sunday , June 10th , 2018 - 10:09:36 AM
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.
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.
Custom shower curtains are not so uncommon anymore with the variety of colors, prints and images available. Imagine what will look good in the bathroom, and then try to find it online if not in brick and mortar stores.Black images on white curtains reflect well if there is a window behind them in the shower. They can be seen easily when the light is on in the bathroom, too, and they are somewhat fascinating. Name the subject, and up pops a curtain idea. Some images are sexy, some are cute and some are even patriotic.
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.
For those who love the convenience of shades but desire the ornate appeal of curtains, balloon curtains may be the answer. These shades are generally made of cotton or a cotton/polyester blend, and come in a vast variety of colors and designs. They feature one to four or five gathers at the bottom, so that when you open them (vertically as a shade), the material creates poufs between the gathers. The Balloon Fabric Shades have multiple gathers, creating a decorative row of poufs.
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.
