No room is complete without curtains. Most people are not sure about the designs and styles of curtains that they should use in their living rooms. There are many designs and patterns in curtains, but not every design can complement your living room area. Here, we will talk about different curtain styles that will make your decision easy.
The best curtain style is the one which suits your furniture style, size and shape of your windows, and also the architecture of your home. “Pinch pleat drape” style is very famous among people. These curtains are a little expensive, but give your room an attractive look it deserves. If you like to go for a less expensive option, “tab top curtain” would be the best choice for you. These curtains give your room a relaxed and casual look. For clean and contemporary look in your room, you can opt for contemporary version of tab top drape.
Privacy is an issue when we need to select curtains for our room, but when we have a beautiful view from the window and privacy is not a big issue, a good option is “hanging stationary panels”, which definitely add colour and softness to the room. For people looking for cheap options, rod pocket panels are good. You can add a “topper” according to the overall design style of your living room. These are some off the rack inexpensive options for your living room area, but if you really want a unique curtain style for your room, choose custom tailored curtains. You have to be creative; you can add colour and design of your choice to give your room the look you feel it deserves and according to your mood. These custom tailored curtains can be cheap or expensive; depends on the fabric and design you would choose.
Off the rack curtains though are inexpensive, but they are available in limited colours and patterns. These curtains are poorly made, and offer a temporary solution to décor your living room. On the other hand, custom made curtains are expensive because of the good chosen fabric, and proper lining style. These curtains take time to be completed, but once they are ready and hanged, they make your room attractive and unique. The lining feature enhances the life of these curtains; you can enjoy seeing them for a long time. Adding lining to your curtains is something very important. If you are living in a cold area, thermal lining should be added. Although it will increase the cost of curtains, but it will stop the energy escaping your home, and it will also increase the life of your curtains by protecting them from the sun.
If you are living in a sunny area, sun rays can be harmful for your curtains. It is wise to add cotton lining to your curtains to protect them from sun. It will reduce the amount of sunlight entering the room, thus save the items like carpet and furniture from fading. For warm countries with lot of sunshine throughout the year, opaque lining keeps out any unwanted light. Living room curtains should be chosen with proper care. Though they can be expensive, but they eventually save your money in the long run. These curtains will augment the beauty of your living room; protect your furnishings from sun and make them last for years.
