Curtains are available nowadays in a wide variety of fabrics. Lighter fabrics help keep the room light and airy and are preferred during hot weather while heavy draperies with lots of fabric are more suitable for colder weather. It is best to choose two kinds of curtains for the bedroom for both seasons of winter and summer and change them accordingly every year. Choosing transparent curtains makes the room look sleek and futuristic but they are not very functional as they cannot successfully keep out light and can be a hindrance during sleep.
When it comes to your lounge or any other large rooms, the style of your curtains will decide the look of the room. The type of furniture that you have also plays an important role in the type of curtains that you choose. Small tables and sharp angles might require a mini blind to cover the window along with side panel curtains tied off swag style to add a splash of colour. Large furniture may need a larger blind, but the same basic idea stands for curtains.
Make note that a curtain can serve two purposes: It can be a decorative element in your home and it can serve the purpose to block out light. Maybe you have a room where you don't care about blocking out light, in this case the thickness of the curtain will not matter a lot. You can then focus on style or color instead. On the other hand, if the main function of your curtain will be to block sunlight (for example in your bedroom) then a thin and translucent curtain will not be of much use. In such cases you want a curtain made from thick material that won't let through a lot of light. This is also a concern if your house doesn't have blinds and the curtain will be your only way to darken a room during day time.
If you would like to have curtains with a more formal look, look for French pleats. These look extremely stylish. It also allows the curtain to fall straight. You can also try box pleats particularly if what you have is a thin fabric.
Contemporary curtain designs give the look of a room in a house or office a completely new dimension, in terms of style. Traditional curtains constrict the imagination and creativity in the interior design of any place, because one is bound to choose only traditional and antique decor and furnishings. Contemporary designs of curtains give you the freedom to explore and discover all possibilities of decorating your place in a modern and stylish way.
