Curtain. Sunday , June 10th , 2018 - 10:36:43 AM
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.
For instance, one thing you can do is try out a spring window topper design. To do this, purchase a couple of yards of a spring season fabric that you love. Stitch a rod pocket that is about an inch in thickness across the top of it. You'll have to make sure there's enough room between the material and the rod to make room for some creative gathering.
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.
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.
But if you have your heart set on a set of expensive looking blinds why not have a look at some of the faux blind ranges. These blinds have the look of a more expensive blind but cost a lot less.You now not only have the choice of fabric window coverings but you can also find them in aluminum and wood too. These can give a great stylish look to certain rooms.Some people like to have a mixture of styles for different rooms in the house. You could have wood in the kitchen to match the units and maybe aluminum in another room. But most people will still have fabric coverings in the bedrooms.
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.
