Design is such a creative endeavor that it's no wonder new and great ideas pop up each and every day. Since there are so many designs out there for our homes, clothing, cars, and even the buildings we work in, the windows in our homes should be no exception. There are many curtain design ideas that can make our windows pop with excitement and vibrancy. The right design can make a home seem like a dream come true, and it's easy to start designing yourself.
First however, you must think about how the rest of your home will go with the design. For instance, if you have a Victorian style home, you'll most likely want to get curtains that are more in a Victorian style or that maybe have designs that lean more towards the Victorian era. If you have a room that is more contemporary, maybe minimalist designs will work for you. A plain pole could be a great start for a room that has little to no elaborate décor. Once you begin with the plain pole, you can start to hang up all kinds of curtains from frilly designs to the more solid colored curtains. Rooms that are more contemporary can benefit greatly from a bit of color here or there.
You want the curtain design to complement the room rather than take away from it. You'll want to take a close look at the kind of window you have. Is your window, rectangular? Is it a large bay window? Size and shape can play a big factor in what kind of curtains you can hang up.
After you have taken into account some of the above considerations, let you imagination run wild. Consider all different types of fabrics such as silk or lace. Consider hand sewing your own curtains. You can use a colorfast outliner pen to decorate sheer curtains or you can attach appliqués, stickers and other fabric shapes to enhance plain fabric.
