The use of curtains remains widely popular for decorative and practical purposes. The basic definition of a curtain is simply a piece of material suspended from above used as a covering or screen that is often one of a pair. The more practical uses of curtains include blocking any type of light, blocking drafts around windows or doors, or blocking water. There is also a stage curtain that goes up when a show begins and this covers the stage during breaks or at the ending of a show. Many people spend a great deal of time to choose curtains that serve either practical and decorative purposes or decorative purposes alone.
There are several types of curtains to consider depending on the practical use along with the style or decorative way that a curtain will accent a room. One of the more common types of curtains is known as a pole pocket. This curtain is made with a casing at the top of the panel that slides over a rod. This style of curtain eliminates any need for rings. Sometimes the curtain is made with double casings that allows it to be placed over the rod on the lower casing. With this style hanging, the curtain can be pushed creating a ruffle throughout the top casing.
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.
If you have just bought a house or you are thinking of re-decorating your home, consider the options presented to you by a number of different curtain types and their functions. With correct curtain choice, it is possible to change the look and feel of a room completely. Curtains are an important feature of your room's style and feel. Curtains are no longer just used for blocking cold, keeping warmth inside, blocking out light and creating a private atmosphere. Now curtains are used in a decorative manner as well as practical functions. Depending on the window you need to dress, curtains can become a focal point of an entire room or frame a view from the window. Interior decorators use colour, style and new materials to help create an excellent looking window curtain.
