Women have always spent many hours in selecting curtains for each room of the house. The curtains in the living room or where guests are received and the dining room are planned meticulously. Silk and linen blinds with elaborate designs either woven or embroidered were valued by households that could afford such curtains.
The buttonhooks require some extra fabric to make the straps. You will need a number of straps cut into equal sizes depending on the length of the curtain. The buttons should then be sewed on one end of each strap. Finally make buttonholes at the top edge of the curtain with regard to the size of the straps. One of the advantages of this method is that by adjusting the position of the buttonholes you can adjust the height of the curtain from the ground.
Window coverings come in so many different varieties today that it may be hard to decide on what you want. The decision may come down to personal taste but you can help yourself by doing some research on different varieties of window coverings. One popular type of window covering is the roman shade which is also known as country curtains. They are flat shades with dowels slotted horizontally up the back so they can be pulled up into soft horizontal folds. Roman shades give a clean modern look to your window space.
For large windows situated in the living room, choose pleated or layered curtains made from fabrics like silk, satin or velvet. You can also have beaded curtains. Having valances or pelmet to cover the curtain rods will give the curtains a better finish. For windows that face the street, double-sided curtains are better as they give a presentable look. To make the curtains look more fancy use tie backs which also help in gathering up the curtain when not in use. These curtains also help to cover some flaws in the room. They can also be used to neutralize extremely light or dark shades on the walls.
The type of material you use will also allow you to control the sunlight which enters your room. During the night, these curtains can also serve as covers for privacy purposes. There are numerous types of curtains and each one of these has their own unique purposes. Some types, for instance the sheer grommet curtains, are mostly used for decorative purposes. Sheer grommet curtains add a soft touch to living rooms and furthermore serve the purpose of a filter as well, preventing sunlight from directly entering the room. This keeps the room temperature from rising and making the room too hot. These sheer grommet curtains also provide concealment, blocking the views from the rooms according to your desires. Sheer grommet curtains can be used to liven up your living room in some of the most unique and beautiful ways. We have highlighted for you some of the ways you can achieve this.
