Korinna Kriemhild Curtains, December 09th , 2016. Blue, royal blue, stark white, ivory, light green, light orange, beige and white, sheer white, sheer light blue, etc., are some popular colors for outdoor curtains. Also, opt for materials that are waterproof and resistant to mold, mildew, and color fading. Some popular materials include, duck-coated and vinyl-coated sheers and canvas. Their prices are pretty affordable if you are installing them all by yourself. However, if you want to use curtain replacement models, that come with matching curtains and canopies, then you certainly need to pay more. Apart from their functional use, curtains and drapes enhance the visual appeal of a room. They add to its aesthetic value and help highlight the furniture and accessories present in the room. Simply put, they can be used as a focal point, or as a backdrop to accentuate a focal point you are trying to create. So, how can you decide what kind of curtains and drapes are more suited to living rooms than any other room in a house? Let's take a look. The choice of drapes depends on the purpose you want to use them for. Of course, the first one is to block out the sunlight, but the choice of curtains depends on the amount of sunlight entering the room. For instance, if it is the morning sunlight, you would choose ones that allow this light to filter into your living room, while you enjoy a cup of tea early in the morning. For this purpose, you could choose light cotton, sheer, or lace materials. However, window treatments also have to provide privacy during the evening. So, having a dual set would be ideal, for you to enjoy your mornings, and privacy in the evenings. On the other hand, if it is the rays of the setting sun that make it through your room, choosing a darker shade would be ideal to block out these harsh rays. As such, thick cotton or silk would be a great choice. Silk curtains are slightly more difficult to maintain, but since your living room is where you entertain your guests, choosing rich curtains is a good investment. This room is also the focal point of your house, which is why all measures toward appropriate home decoration should be followed. As mentioned earlier, apart from the functional use of curtains, they are also used for the purpose of decorating the living room. If you wish to use them as a focal point, then the ideal way to do so is to choose a good pattern and print on them. For instance, a curtain with floral prints would do well in a traditionally decorated room, while a modern room would be able to carry off curtains and drapes with geometric prints beautifully. The manner in which you want to drape them is also important. For instance, do you want luxurious valances, or do you simply want them to stand out on their own, on a beautiful curtain rod? It is only your personal choice that will matter here. Colors are also very important. While the light and privacy factor will help determine the color you choose, the overall decorating pattern and color scheme of the living room will be another factor you should consider. Further, if you want to put up curtains on large windows, keep in mind that the color you choose should not be too dark. A large span of a dark color will make your living room look dull and steal away all the charm it holds. Finally, the shape of your windows are a big deciding factor. Bay window treatments will vary from window treatments for arched windows. Again, both can be as simple or as luxurious as you want them to. Further, while you may choose shorter curtains for windows, it is ideal to have drapes for French doors to give them the grand look they deserve. With these tips, you can get as creative as you wish to, indulge in different styles of curtain draping, and come up with some great curtain ideas based on the overall look of your living space. Decorating a bedroom can be quite a task, and you'll agree, as you must have done it at least once. You decide the theme that you will be using for your bedroom. Then you mix various color tones, to check if they match the theme that you have selected. Once you have the furniture decided, it's time to think about the curtains.

Knowing how to sew curtains will help you to easily fix the grommet rings to the curtains and then hang it. You can purchase the kit for making grommet curtains from any upholstery shop. They will provide you the correct size for the rings and the rod, that has to be passed through it. The steps are explained in the following segment. First take the measurement of the curtain rod and the ring so that they complement each other. Buy the kit accordingly, or else you can purchase the materials separately and then assemble them. Decide how many rings you will require for fixing on the drape. The density of the pleats will depend on the spacing of the rings. If you fix the rings at least 1 inch apart from each other, then, the curtain fabric will be overlapped in a compact manner. This makes the curtain look much more voluminous. Before attaching the rings, you have to pierce holes of the same size to that of the ring on the panel of the curtain. Fold the panel and cut it in a circular fashion. Now sew the sides by hemming it. This forms the attachment zone of the grommet rings. If you have purchased a kit, you will get the punching tool for fixing the rings along with it. Read the instructions mentioned on the label and then start the process. The rings are double layered and you can start fixing according to the suggested technique. Punch it tightly so that they do not fall off, and fix it on the wrong side of the curtain. Once the holes are ready, you can easily pass the rods through it. Pleat it well so that the drapes look compact and full. Drape Designs
Rashmi Jameela Curtains, December 09th , 2016. The material of a curtain or blind can really make a difference in how a room feels. Heavy draperies can make a room feel stuffy, or in the right conditions, regal. Bamboo blinds offer a different feel than metal blinds. A light, sheer material draped over a rod can make a room feel airy and light or cold. It is always best to follow the theme of the room when choosing materials. Lighter materials often go best in airier rooms. However, this rule can be broken in some cases. Playing around with different textures will yield the best results.
