While sewing your curtains make sure that they are not too long-they should just clear the ground. Although long, flowing curtains are beautiful to look at, the extra length will pick up dust and will need cleaning often.
If you are creatively inclined, you can create your own drapes at home. Adding trimmings like lace edges, satin ribbons, and sequins to plain, sheer curtains are good ideas for creating your own unique drapery. Before purchasing in retail, it makes sense to check out the sales and discount shops. You might be surprised at the sheer variety of reasonably-priced curtains that is available at such places. Imagine a house with a beautifully engraved ceiling. A huge hallway, and big rooms. A back door that opens into a sprawling lawn, that is punctuated with brilliantly vibrant wild flowers. The sun's rays come into the house from all directions, unfiltered and pure. But then the house turns really warm. So warm in fact, that it becomes impossible to stay in the room for long. What's the perfect solution to this? Curtains and drapes of course! Any form of interior decorating is incomplete without some gorgeous drapery ideas to add that bit of elegance to your windows, and even doors, at times. So, if you're considering home decorating soon, you must check out the ideas for curtains and drapes given here, for the different parts of your home. When it comes to living room decorating, it's all about impressions. The living room is definitely the first impression that any person is going to have of your house. And if you have some boring drapes in your living room, then there's no real point of decorating it with the latest furniture. So let's see what you can do to spiffy up your living room. If your window let's in a lot of sunlight, then going for a dark color makes sense. It will keep the sun's rays away, and by reflecting the light, it will also keep the room cooler. You can select some good printed and heavy fabric for the curtains and drapes in your living room, for the windows. For a passage from the living room into the kitchen or the next room, you can have some pretty beaded curtains. They look great, and have a mysterious look too! If you're looking for some window treatments in your kitchen, you can try some kitchen curtain ideas. Since your kitchen windows are relatively smaller than the other rooms (or so I'm assuming), you'll have to opt for a smaller length. Don't go in for dark colors in the kitchen, it gives a very dull effect. Keep the colors bright and sunny. Go in for floral or summery prints. Avoid pastels too. Take colors like orange, bright red, a pleasant green, sea blue and others in the same color palette. Those were the window curtain ideas for your kitchen. For the transition from the kitchen into the living room or a passage, you can use the same curtains, only much longer in length. Or you can just have strings with small trinkets like charms, bells, etc. tied on them. Oriental and Indian curtains with small animal figurines also look exceptionally pretty within rooms. Bedroom decorating is always taken quite seriously. You spend most of your time at home here, so it's obvious that you want it to look nice. So, here are some curtain ideas for bedrooms. Bedroom curtains and drapes can be modified as per your taste and your personality. If you want the drapes for the windows of your bedroom to look classy and sophisticated, go in for a richly embroidered fabric. Here you can go in for pastel shades of your like, but just add a dash of shimmer with gold or silver threads, here and there. You can also go in for an entire theme for your bedroom, and match the curtains and drapes to it. If your room is a shade of baby pink, go in for a bright red for the curtains. Or, paint the wall which has the window (only) in a dark color, like dark chocolate, or black, and have a pristine white silk curtain, with beautiful self embroidery on it. Or a cream and dark chocolate/black combination will also look great! Try out the curtains and drapes ideas that are mentioned above to give your home a striking and stylish look. And watch the others go green with envy! Patio doors are basically transparent door frames that can be installed in any part of a house. These are wonderful frames that allow you to view the beautiful landscapes outside your house. Patio doors are usually installed in living rooms and they allow easy passage to a garden. One more important functionality of patio doors is they allow abundant amount of sunlight to enter into a room. Since these doors are see through, it is necessary that they are covered with drapes or curtains, so as to achieve privacy and block natural light when required. Installing curtains is an inexpensive way to cover the patio doors. They come in large variety and you can select them depending upon your requirements and the style of the patio door. Given below is a brief discussion on patio door curtains in various patterns.
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.

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.
