Curtain Style / February 28, 2019 / Aaliyah Dotson.
Want a new look and feel? - Although white or cream blinds will fit in with most room styles and colours, they do nothing to enhance it. Curtains can blend in with your room, or can be chosen to enhance or contrast with it. Redecorating? No problem, just choose new curtains to match. Curtains can also have trimmings and contrast edges to pick out other colours within the room. Buttons can be added to pleats, cord can be added to edges or pleats as can a contrast trimming. Curtains offer a much wider scope for design.
To establish the height of the curtain there are three measurements needed to be determined. Begin by measuring the height from the floor to the ceiling. For this example let's start with a 10 foot ceiling which is 120 inches in height. Next measure the height of the carrier and curtain tracking; this is usually 3"-4" combined. The third measurement to determine is the open space wanted below the bottom of the curtain; 12"-18" is typical.
Hand, cord or electric operation - Curtain tracks and curtain poles can be hand operated so that many different curtains can operate on one window. This allows curtains of different widths and drops to stack at different locations on the window. In addition they can also be operated as a blind with a cord to avoid handling the curtains or electrically for the extra security and a touch of luxury.
There are endless color options in both styles, so matching with your current décor should be no problem. You can even have blackout added to either of these curtains if light is a problem in this room. Linen curtains are nice to add in a guest bedroom. They are casual and bring on a relaxed atmosphere, which I am sure your guest will appreciate. Once again, you can find linen curtains with or without blackout if that is needed.
