The Process Of Making Curtains Is Easier Than Ever Before
By Roger King
Looking for elegant window treatment ideas? One way of achieving it is by draping or swaging fabric loosely around a rod, and just letting the fabric pond on the floor, or fall at any length along the sides of the window. Depending on the fabric, you may only need to hem the ends for those who do not sew.
Nowadays, dressing a window involves establishing decorative schemes with fabrics and taking advantage of the visual potential of curtain accessories such as edgings, tiebacks, cornices, and valances. Ready-made tiebacks of cord and rope, complete with tassels, can be bought, or you can make your own out of fabric in a variety of shapes.
Begin by examining your practical requirements; take into account the shape and size of your windows, the need for privacy, and the overall decorative style and color scheme of the room. Before you begin to make your curtains, you must decide on the type of hanging system you intend to use. You may wish to add accessories and fixture to your curtain hanging system that allows you to completely personalize your curtains.
Hanging fabric over a window or door creates a strong visual focus in any room. The amount of fabric needed is affected by the width of the opening, type of hanging system style. Translucent fabric makes ideal curtain material when daytime privacy is desired. For the most part, the effect of a curtain will determine the character of a room.
Unlined fabric may be well suited to frequent washing, so curtains made from this material are particularly appropriate for the most extensively used rooms of a home, such as the kitchen and bathroom. Finding a trimming of a curtain weight, size, pattern, and color to suit your particular curtain fabric should not be difficult because of the wide range of trimmings that exists.
