Vera Holden. Curtain. February 25th , 2018.
Proportion and Balance - Take into account issues such as size, shape and visual weight. A lightweight set of curtains in a dark color, for example, can appear to be very heavy. And beautifully pleated drapes can come off as “just not enough” if they fit too tightly to the windows. Seeing your room as blocks of color will help to provide balance and proportion.
Do you want your curtain rod exposed or hidden by the curtains? If it's exposed it should match the room's style and d'(c)cor, so look around the room to figure that out. (A lot of you don't have to do that; you just know your style. But there are others....)
Novelty curtains come in many different colors and designs. There are literally endless choices when it comes to the patterns and colors that are available to select from. The best way to pick your curtain is to first decorate your bathroom, then decide what shower curtain would match best. When you do this, you will make sure your shower curtain matches everything else you buy in the room, and you will also make sure that you get everything right the first time around, avoiding having to return stuff later.
While there are always those intrepid souls who like the DYI trend of today and are determined to do everything themselves, the rest of the world's home owners would rather tackle something that isn't quite as complex for the most part. That is why there are professional curtain and blind fitters available to take on this task and make it look easy. With all the measuring and checking to make sure of width and length for blinds and curtains as well as checking for level to make sure everything is straight side-to-side, this job can get complex fast when there are lots of windows to deal with in the home.
Before you read further, it is confession time. We're a little biased - but for good reason. You see, some draperies are made to hang from mostly invisible curtain rods but not to all. And this is where our bias comes in: the way we figure it, if you're going to see all or part of the curtain rod at one time or another, why not pick one you love looking at? Why should you ever have to stare at a long, white metal rod (read: not pretty)? Okay, now you know our little secret, so read on -
