The curtains are one of the most important, yet overlooked features of the decor. They look absolutely beautiful and flowing if they are properly selected. A good curtain is one which is made of durable material, it is stitched to perfection and fits the windows perfectly also it should be one which seamless blends with the color scheme of the rest of the room. You can get ready-made as well as custom made curtains depending on your budget. Just be sure that the curtain panels are perfect and does not look uneven or awkward.
Do Your Research Before The Upcoming Shopping Spree
Before going shopping for the curtain panels measure your window and write down the measurements on a piece of paper or note it in your phone. The tricky thing here is the width of the window; the width of the curtain and the window will be the same or slightly extra, but the drapes are supposed to have pleats, so the fabric needs to be twice the size of the window’s width. The length of the drapes depends on your choice, if you want them right above the floor or slightly longer.
Decorating The Windows
You can play with colors, fabrics and textures when it comes to curtains and drapes. Ask a professional for help or take inspiration from the internet to come up with unique ideas. Make use of scallops, tassels and other embellishments to beautify the area. Fabrics must be chosen according to the climatic conditions, and also on the decor of the house. If your home is more of a classy space, then go for flannel or velvet and if you like a more casual, contemporary or chic looking apartment then tulle or satin can be a good option. The curtain panels must be made in accordance to the fabric being used, depending whether it would shrink or not.
The use of neutral colors is a good option as pastel shades blend easily with the rest of the surroundings without looking out of place. In case the rest of the surroundings are done in neutral colors, you can dare to use bold shades for the curtain panels to add that extra dash of color and liven up the surroundings.
