Mini blinds are another option that you can consider for bay windows, particularly if you are decorating your home on a budget. Vinyl mini blinds are a cheap and sturdy option and they are very durable too. They are also available in a number of colors, textures and finishes to suit your decor and they allow you to adjust the amount of light flowing into the room. In mini blinds, the slats are less than half the width of regular blinds. This makes mini blinds easy to clean and they are also more aesthetically pleasing then Venetian blinds. Mini blinds are also comparatively lightweight than wooden blinds.
The basic functions of any window treatment are, regulation of light in the living room, providing privacy, heat, and cold insulation and lastly, adding beauty to the room. Once you decide the framework and functions of the drapery, move on to the fabric and style that can be used which also depend on the type of window. You may choose any of the styles or ideas mentioned below or improvise on them and come up with customized designs of your own.
For a rustic kitchen, the best kitchen curtains would be cafe curtains in a bright shade and a nice pattern. A cafe curtain covers only the lower half of the window and the upper half is left open. This allows you to watch people or the scenery from the top half of the window and at the same time conceal what you are working on in the kitchen. Usually a valance or cornice is installed at the top portion of the window to create a more cozy look. The valance can also provide some form of privacy and it also helps to block any glare from sunlight. The best materials for a cafe curtain are linen and cotton. For a very chic French bistro look, you can sew lace along the edge of the cafe curtains or even satin ribbons. If you are creatively inclined and want to jazz up the generic store-bought cheap kitchen curtains, a floral applique on your cafe curtains is the best way to give it a personal touch. For a modern kitchen which is all fitted with steel and chrome, you need contemporary kitchen curtains. One of the best curtain ideas for such a kitchen is to opt for sheers, nets or voile materials. They are translucent fabrics that allow diffused light to enter the kitchen. You can have full-length sheer curtains or mid-length sheer curtains in a color and pattern of your choice. For a small kitchen which has only one window, an inexpensive kitchen curtains ideas is to hang old silk scarfs around the rod. You can also use old handkerchiefs in a pleasing pattern and sew them together for instant modern kitchen curtains. If you need more privacy (from nosey neighbors), then of course sheers or net curtains won't work for you. Your best option in that case is to purchase full length ready-to-hang, tab top curtains. However, you can jazz these plain curtains by using stencils and acrylic paint colors to create different patterns. A light-colored curtain in white, pale blue and yellow looks best in a modern kitchen, although you have to make sure that you regularly clean them as any dust and stains will show up quickly. Whatever kitchen window treatments you select for your home, make sure that it matches the overall aesthetics of the room and does not clash with the decor. A kitchen curtain is the best way to dress up the kitchen so choose them with care. Also make sure that it is easy to clean and maintain. Interior decorating is an art.
