Curtains which are known as drapes in the USA are what we use to block out light and preying eyes from looking into our homes. Net curtains help control the ambiance and flow of natural light into a room and when chosen correctly can finish off the decor of a room beautifully. Also known as sheer curtains, they are made from translucent fabric too allow a lot of light into a room and also a basic level of UV protection while also maintaining maximum visibility through the curtains.
Thin layers of sheer chiffon, voil or net curtains can be hung on one rod as a shield over the windows and thick fabric can be used as the front curtains. This type of curtain design requires further embellishments like drapery over the rod and fancy curtain accessories. These curtains are usually ceiling mounted and the length of the curtains is measured in such a way that its ends flow down on the ground.
When you choose your curtains for any particular room, consider the aesthetic appeal of the room, whether the curtain enhances a certain style or colour, if done properly the curtain will not only enhance the style of the room, but adds an opulent feel to any space. Be aware that the incorrect choice such as curtains which are dirty and unkempt or miss-matched can give any room an extremely gloomy, uneasy look. When decorating your home with curtains, consider the underside of the curtain, and how it will appear from the outside, especially if your window is street or entrance facing. The appearance of your curtains from the outside of your house will immediately affect the appearance of your house from the street.
Seasonal prints and colour are the basic inspiration of contemporary curtain designs. Light and airy fabric like cotton, net and light silk is preferred in spring/summer season. Flowery prints are in vogue, whether they are printed boldly on the fabric or printed in a subdued manner. Abstract and geometrical prints also make great contemporary designs for curtains. By choosing contemporary designs for curtains, you can assert how contemporary and modern is your own personality and attitude towards the changing trends of home and office furnishings.
