A room isn’t complete without an appropriate window dressing and yet many people leave this fundamental point until a room is nearly finished making their selection somewhat limited. It’s advisable to include the window dressing from the beginning of a redecoration or room make-over project so that it’s not let as a lose end or after thought. There’s plenty of different style, colours and designs of readymade curtains available, visit website of Terrys Fabrics to view their huge choices.
It’s also advisable to visit website to gauge the amount of choices open to you. Take a look at interior design blogs for inspiration; you’ll see there are various different ways to hang curtains, as well as information which can help you decide on the length and heading style you should use to compliment the style and décor of your room.
Other aspects you’ll have to consider is colour, cost, size and style. Visit website to narrow down your options so that you’re not overwhelmed. Using a mood-board is a great way of gathering all the information you need in one place. You’ll then be able to decide which patterns, colours and styles work well within the room.
Decide on a colour which can blend seamlessly into your colour scheme. If you haven’t chosen a colour scheme you can always select colours which are within the curtains, this way you’ll be sure that your window dressing will compliment your room. Neutral colours are very versatile; the latest soft whites, creams and tans are always good choices. Pops of contrasting bolder colours can be used as accents if you wish.
Don’t overlook cost; although many readymade curtains are inexpensive you shouldn’t have to make compromises on style due to being on a restricted budget. Only include affordable curtains on your mood-board and place more expensive ones on a ‘wish list’ so that you can change the curtains when funds are available without having to completely redecorate the room. If the curtains aren’t lined you may also wish to factor this into the cost. Linings will help the curtains to hang properly, they’ll also help to keep your room warm in the Winter and help prevent heat build-up during the Summer.
Heading styles of readymade curtains are basically 3 types. Pencil pleat, eyelet and tab top. There are slight variations within these groups. Pencil pleats are perfect for a traditionally styled home; eyelet curtains provide a modern touch, while tab tops offer a more relaxed and informal style. Eyelet curtains and tab top curtains can only be hung from curtain poles; pencil pleats styles can be hung from traditional curtain tracks or curtain poles using the appropriate hooks and rings.
Choosing the correct size is of paramount importance and can change the whole dynamics of a room. The latest interior design trends favour full length curtains. For traditional and modern styles the curtains should graze the surface of the floor. For a more dramatic and sensual look opt for curtains which are deliberately too long and pool into soft puddles onto the floor. If you choose the extra long size ensure that you choose curtains which are made from a fluid fabric such as silk, satin or lightweight cotton blends.
As you can see there’s plenty to think about when choosing curtains; follow the above steps and you’ll find the whole process much easier. More information on curtains and fabrics for your home on the go is available online at www.terrysfabrics.co.uk.
