Curtain. Sunday , June 10th , 2018 - 10:02:12 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.
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.
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.
Today's residential window treatments come in a vast variety of options. Some are designed strictly to provide aesthetic appeal, while others served dual purposes in keeping the home comfortable, or blocking noise and light. Contemporary curtain ideas have truly revolutionized the effectiveness of window coverings and what they do to improve or day-to-day comfort. Even better, prices on curtains have not increased because of these improvements. Many drapes and curtains are available at very reasonable, even wholesale prices at sites like smithandnoble.com and drleonards.com.
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.
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.
