Hi everyone! its been a busy week for us but then I made sure I won't miss out updating you about interior design. How many of you likes to have a unique color of curtain? of course I'm one of them because I would like to impress my guest when they visited my place. I noticed that the first thing they compliment is the curtain next will be the furnitures. Having the right color and length of curtain will bring more beauty to your home.
Color and Fabric
Fabric is an essential part of choosing curtains, since the material will dictate how well your curtains function and hold up over time. "If they're too heavy, they may not fold crisply when drawn; too light and they may not fall well.
holding fabrics up to a window, even in a fabric showroom. Pleat it like an accordion at the top and let it drape ays. If it starts to flare like a piece of crinoline, then it's not going to fall nicely on the window. Work with a big sample, at least 2 yards, since a smaller piece may not show the fabric's true drape.
Sunlight will fade fabrics over time. If the room gets a lot of light, it's smart to avoid bright colors, since they tend to fade faster. "Still, if you like to change out your rooms often, you can be less concerned with fading, suggests going with neutral colors, since they're less likely to fade and more likely to blend into a room's decor.
Linen, silk, faux silk, and velvet are best choices to use for window treatments since they tend to hang the best, Faux silk tends to be the most durable," she says. And in a particularly sunny room, faux silk doesn't deteriorate as quickly as real silk.
Some fabrics can help keep out the cold. Many hotels use suede, velvet, tapestry, or tweed since their weight helps block light and keep heat in. Still, nearly any fabric can be interlined with bump, a thick, insulating felt material. And interlining—a piece of fabric slipped between the lining and the face fabric—can also help prolong the life of the curtains. "If silk is unlined, it will rot, "Lining and interlining are what give curtains their body and fullness."
Length and Lining
Before you take out the tape measure, decide how high above the window you'd like the curtains to begin. Keep in mind: "Hanging panels higher than the window will give a sense of height to the room, Designers often hang curtains about six inches above the window frame, but for a dramatic look, some go higher.
Measure from the top of the window (plus the added inches of height where the curtains will hang from) to the floor. For a more traditional look, with the curtain slightly puddled on the floor, you'll want to add another two or three inches to your length. For a modern, crisp look, have the panel fall flush with the floor.
When measuring the width of your window, be sure to add four to eight inches on both sides and double the total number to ensure curtain fullness. "Then you won't block a lot of window glass when the curtains are open, and they won't get in the way," says Lawrence.
If you plan to use the curtains to shut out the sun, those extra inches around the perimeter of your window frame will also help block out any creeping light.
