An exciting and important part of home makeover is shopping for curtains and drapes. A house looks incomplete without curtains. Curtains, draperies, window treatments, decorative curtain rods, tie-backs, valances, blinds are some of the items that can add to the overall living room décor theme. A totally stylish yet functional way of adding ambiance is with curtains and drapes. Before you go on to purchase curtains and drapes, check where you are going to put the curtains. Another thing to consider is that what the actual purpose of the curtains is. Whether you want the curtains to keep the light out or allow the light inside, block the heat off and keep the inside cool will influence the type of materials for the window curtains.
South and West facing windows get a lot of light whereas north and east facing windows get less. Coated fabrics help insulate efficiently. They can help reducing in your power bill by offering better insulation. Along with insulating purposes, curtains and drapes assure privacy as well. You can select fabrics that will fulfill all the above needs. Pleated curtains give a fuller look and a more traditional air. But now tab-topped curtains have become more and more common. Valances and tie-backs are accessories that add greatly to the beauty of the curtains. You can have valences in the same fabric, in a contrast colour, match the living room furniture upholstery or match the bed-sheets/bedding covers.
High-quality curtains and drapes, when maintained properly, last for a long-long time. Vacuuming can remove the dirt and dust. Depending on the type of fabric used, you can wash them at home or get it dry-cleaned. Ironing properly will bring a bounce to the drape and allows the curtains to fall naturally gracefully.
