The Magic Of Curtains

It is a fact that how much ever you try to decorate your room – be it paint or furniture or other accessories, nothing can match up the look of curtains on the walls. We personally believe that curtains and blinds can make the biggest and impressive change to a room after paint. If you are looking for easy and affordable makeover, curtains are the best options for the same. They can add the required drama, softness and even a punch of color to any space. Whether small or big window work, curtains can add height and depth to it.

The length and width of curtains also play an integral role. A beautiful room with shabbily hung curtains seems to be uncomfortable and also lowers the tone of the room. So let’s talk about what people are doing wrong and how we can amend it.

Curtain Rods Too Low – generally we feel in order to make the curtains touch the floor, we fix curtain rods too lower than actual level. We are not saying the rods should touch the ceiling, however, must be a good half or two-third distance to the top. This will make the walls look as elevated as possible.

Curtains Not Long Enough – just imagine you put in efforts to make a beautiful dream bedroom. You thoroughly gave a thought about your likes and dislikes and tried to give your bedroom a part of your persona. And in the end you made a blunder by hanging curtains that are longer than the window but not long enough to touch the floor. Friends you can’t even imagine how horrendous it looks. We don’t want you to make this mistake and thus strictly advice to go for curtains that touch the floor. We have got three options for you –

• Slight Float – these are just an inch above the floor.
• Almost There – you got to be extremely particular about the measurements while getting these curtains.
• Floating – the curtains are all over the floor and are perfect for vintage European feel. In order to have a perfect look, make sure the curtain fabric is flowy linen and velvet preferable.

Curtain Rods Not Wide Enough – yet another common mistake when it comes to hanging of curtains is the rod not being wide enough. It gives a feeling of curtains hanging partially; natural light is blocked and also makes window and eventually the room look smaller.

Curtain Panels Not Wide Enough – having spoken about the width of rods, it is time to put curtains that match up to the width of the rod. We don’t just want the curtains to fit the rod, infact make sure you have double wide panels on both the sides for an attractive look.
