Curtains are an integral part of your interior and sadly the most neglected too. How many times have you forgotten about the unfortunate drapes that have been hanging on the main window for years? All those curtain fanatics out there will know that home face lifting does not only require revamping the furniture and walls; unless there is a set of well-groomed curtains hanging on the window, your renovation regime will be incomplete.
Choosing the correct curtains can be a tedious yet fruitful task. Curtains that are chosen according to the room’s ambiance and décor will immediately make it look impressive. Curtains and drapes are the best way to show off your home decorating skills.
You can either make them more understated so they blend into the room, or you may add a set of prominent drapes that make a statement. No matter how you go about it, it must be tastefully done. Here are 5 of our favorite curtain styles to jazz up the indoors:
This style of curtains is perfect for a less formal environment like a kids’ room or a study room. Tab-top curtains are simple, easy to install, and understated. They are usually made with less fancy materials like linen, and preferred in printed or two-tone fabrics.
Tab-top curtains have a loop of fabric that is stitched to the top panel of the drape, and is used to hang it on the curtain rod. The loop can be in a contrasting color or print. You can opt for the classic black and white combo to liven up a dull room or add monotone curtains to merge the curtains into the setting.
Box Pleat Curtains
When done in a classy way, box pleat curtains can look very elegant and transform the room. This style is perfect to adorn your master bedroom or living room, and looks equally superb in both linens and silks. When opting for these curtains, make sure that they are tailored neatly.
The pleats are folded neatly and not gathered untidily. Box pleats would look fabulous with color combinations like the ones offered by Generation Store Curtains.
As suggested by the name, sheer curtains are see-through drapes that can be used for multiple purposes. They can be added as a lining under curtains on a window or they can be used individually within the house to create a dreamier ambiance.
Sheer curtains can be made with materials like French net, chiffon, and Chantilly lace. They can be used as separators within a room, perhaps to segregate a dressing area in the bed room.
This style is perfect for adding a sophisticated detail to the room. Roman binds are an interesting style of curtains that is not flowy and folds upwards. They are definitely more impressive than the usual blinds and can be accessorized with cornices on the top.
Roman blinds look best when installed in printed materials. However, an already accessorized room will look best with plain blinds.
This year, home decoration is leaning towards bright colors and jewel tones. Curtains cannot be chosen unless the entire room is taken into consideration; they are not used for overwhelming the environment, but for creating a perfect balance in the interior design.
