Curtains apart from making the room look pretty and elegant also serve a few other purposes of providing privacy and keeping out light that helps in peaceful sleep even during the daytime. If one has the habit of sleeping for some hours during the day and a peaceful atmosphere is required during daytime, blinds should be installed along with curtains to keep out maximum sunlight. With the installation of blinds, the amount of light to be let in can be varied by keeping the blinds behind the curtain open or closed.
Commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms, they provide privacy while adding a stylistic element to the room. These curtains are installed inside a window frame, but generally only cover the bottom half of a window. If you prefer to cover the whole window, these may not be your best option, but you can also install a valance from the top of the window.
Curtains are also used for increasing the aesthetic appeal of a room. An elegant curtain greatly increases the aesthetics of a room and gives an opulent look. On the contrary dirty or ill matched curtains give a room a gloomy look. When the window looks onto a street it is better to give thought to the underside of the curtain as the curtain can be seen from outside and will dictate the appearance of the house.
Another room that benefits from this cost effective method of redecoration is the bathroom. An additional benefit to having a curtain in your bathroom is a little extra privacy, as the shadows shown through the frosted glass are eliminated. Bathroom curtains come in a variety of fabrics including 100% polyester window treatments that have a water repellent finish and are mildew resistant. Once your curtains are installed, you can have fun picking out other bathroom accessories such as mats, shower curtains and towel racks to match.
Allow your aesthetic judgment to guide you while you're shopping for a fabric. The marketplace is full of different kinds of accessories like valances, tracks, cornice boards, curtain rods and tassels. Why do you have to wait? Use your ideas for a window curtain to redecorate your home.
