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.
The valance is a curtain that is used often to cover up rods or other hardware. There are various types of valances such as the waterfall valance, the ascot valance, or an Austrian valance. The type depends on the wanted appearance of the valance to be boxy or to drape across other hanging curtains. They are hung with an additional small rod to cover existing hanging curtains or hung with a bracket that is often attached to a more boxy style valance that surrounds an existing rod with drapes. Valances can also be hung alone above a window for decorative purposes.
Another style is the puffball design. With this style, you can make your curtain look like a slot pleat curtain. The only difference is that you have to keep 12 inches over the slots. After hanging the curtain into the pole, puff up the upper portion.
