Curtain. Sunday , June 10th , 2018 - 10:19:31 AM
The home is a place of solace to many of us. We want to come into a living space that is warm, welcoming, clean, and beautiful, so many of us go out on a search for the best home décor we can find from carpets to paintings to furniture, and even the couch coverings. But what about the curtains?
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.
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 are hoping that your curtains will do more than just decorate your home, consider a solar curtain. These are very inexpensive, and can, in fact, be sold by the roll and cut to fit. This is ideal for the kitchen or the bathroom, where windows can be of an irregular size. Place this curtain between your window and curtain, and it will block damaging UV rays, and well as stop the flow of heat and cool air through the window. You can order panels from Dr. Leonard's, through the retailer's website.
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.
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.
