Attractive curtains can definitely have a huge impact for your home decorations. If you plan to take out your old window treatment, you have to start searching for ideas to make a wonderful ambience. You might be surprised to find out that there are different curtains on the market you can choose from. All you have to do is to find the one that fits your home.
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.
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.
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 single windows it is also possible to do double sets of draperies, one at the panes and one inside the room. It is more difficult to pull off and look good, but it is possible and has the advantage of not requiring any special shapes or types of hangers and rods or curtains. For those wanting to keep curtain ideas for bay window needs simple and inexpensive, this also seems like a good plan.The traditional bank of three or more bay windows that curve out from a room is striking and beautiful, but much more difficult to decorate. To have a flush set of curtains, you must use either separate rods with brackets placed in each individual section, or a custom fitted hanging set up must be made or purchased. This is dramatic, but the most difficult and expensive choice.
A simpler and less expensive choice is to hang a regular curtain rod beginning at the outer corners of the windows at each end of the bay window bank. The curtains in the room will form a flat drapery in any style you choose quite easily, but you do cut off a small part of useful room space, and you lose the bay window charm unless the drapes are pulled. When this simple solution is combined with attractive blinds or shades, it can still be elegant and lovely and easier to afford and to set up.
