If you, like me, love to spread out in your sofa and watch TV in the utmost comfort of your jammies, then you can't let the outside world have a glimpse into your personal space. You need good quality curtains to lend you privacy inside the four walls of your home. Curtains have become the need of the hour in this space-crunched neighborhoods. Somehow the store-bought curtains fail to add the right color to your room or just end up being too short for your windows. That means, your hard-earned money is down the drain. Draping the windows and doors of your home is an important feature of home decor. That's why, you should buy curtain fabrics and make drapes for the windows yourself. Yes, sewing curtains is not only easy, it's also fun! Moreover, you save some moolah too. So, it's time to dust off your sewing machine and put your rusty sewing skills to good use. If you are worrying that you have forgotten about sewing, then you can practice on an old cloth before trying your hand at the real thing. After mustering enough confidence in your ability to tailor, now you must find out what kind of fabric you want to drape your windows.
Grommet drapes for sliding glass doors are very useful since they can be easily pulled off aside while opening the doors. Moreover, choosing the right kind of fabric for curtains and drapes will amplify the amount of light passing through it. You can also utilize the retro curtains made from lighter fabric having contemporary designs sewed on them. Households having large bay windows and spacious interiors are furnished with velvet drapes, as they add a sophisticated look. Faux silken curtains with grommet rings are absolutely pleasing. Satin white drapes with grommet finishing look ethereal in a house that has been painted with chaste and neutral colors. While selecting a grommet curtain, you should consider the interior dcor of your house and try to match it with the other furnishings. If your house has a Victorian setting then opt for the traditional patterns of grommet curtains, hung in antique rods. Quite contrary to these, the colorful designs of grommet curtains complement beach side houses and Mediterranean settings. As window treatments, there is nothing to match the beauty of curtains. They complete the decor of any room, and give the room ambiance and warmth. Curtains and drapes come in a variety of fabrics and patterns. The right pattern can give a room personality and elegance, while the wrong one can completely ruin it. So, you have to choose a pattern with care, and make sure that it matches the decor of your room. There are many different styles and patterns in curtains, and you can purchase them from a store or make them yourself. You should also keep in mind the style of the house you need the curtains for, as patterns for a modern apartment will be very different from those of a cottage style house. One of the most popular patterns is the swag curtain, that consists of a conventional floor length curtain that is fastened to the curtain rod with an additional piece of fabric draped over the rod loosely. One of the main advantages of this pattern is that you can camouflage the rod and joist with the help of the swag fabric. Store brought swag curtains can be personalized by draping a more luxurious fabric like velvet or lace over the rod. These are very dressy, and are best suited for formal drawing rooms and sitting rooms. These are also one of the best ideas for large windows. These are more popular in casual atmospheres and consist of simple tabs or rectangular loops through which the curtain rod is passed. It is one of the most used patterns in most homes, and it is also one of the easiest patterns to sew. Although the style is quite basic and simple, it can be made decorative by sewing buttons on the tabs, adding lace around the edges, and by using beads and ribbons. Tier curtains allow sunlight to enter, and are therefore ideal for the kitchen. They cover the upper portion as well as the lower portion of the window. The lower portion of the window is covered by fabric that is of windowsill length. The upper portion is covered with a separate fabric that can be pleated, draped or left frilly. These patterns are usually mounted on spring rods inside the frame of the window. Tier curtains in lace, toile, gingham, and net are very popular. If you are looking to give a romantic and dreamy look to your bedroom, then you cannot go wrong with balloon curtains. These are characterized by their unique balloon design at the bottom. They are usually paired with valances to give them a more balanced and symmetrical look. Fabrics that are used in making balloon curtains are satin, voile, lace, and velvet. Curtains are the best and most inexpensive way to transform the look of any room. So choose the right pattern for your home. Apart from the cabinetry and design pattern, an important part of kitchen decoration is the blinds and curtains. They give the kitchen a complete look, and add the right dash of colors or patterns required in the kitchen. As modern as your kitchen may be, sometimes you need the right element to give it a homely look and a warm, comfortable, and cozy feel. Curtains are the right elements to give it that look, rather than blinds which seem to be more modern than traditional.
