Blinds vs Curtains: Who Wins? Decorating your home can be one of the most time consuming and difficult tasks, especially given the amount of options available in the current day and age. However, when it comes to redecorating your windows can be one of the most relaxing and enjoyable parts of decorating. There is one question you must answer, as it causes an endless debate, are you going for curtains or blinds? Whatever you choose, whatever materials you prefer and whatever you choose, your home will benefit.
Here are some guiding design principles that can assist you in selecting the right drapes for your beautiful home: Harmony and Unity - In general, you can achieve a better result if you choose curtains that can bring a sense of unity and harmony to the room in question. This is often a function of taking the time to recognize the architectural style with which you are working and then trying to make the most of it – as opposed to covering it over or just pretending it isn’t there. You can also harmonize your surroundings by choosing colors that are already a part of the room’s decor, especially those used in accent pillows. Also, crisp folds tend to be more pleasing to the eye than excessive draping.
Cafe Curtains - Country Home: If you want to have a country home setup, then you have lots of possibilities to choose from. Easiest is to find a tree branch that would be perfect for your window and would match your cafe curtains. Besides the wood as a classic, you can also pick an iron rod or some old, rejected part that can fit as a curtain rod.
The material you select for your window curtains will depend upon the upholstery of your furniture and the color of the walls. You also need to decide whether you want a thick material to block out sunlight or a lighter material that will let sunlight filter through. If you want to your curtain to be made of silk, make sure that you line it with cotton and interline it with flannel. If you don't do this, the sunlight will fade your silk and you will have to keep replacing your curtains often.
When it comes to fabric, you can find pieces of quilt or some old parts of different fabric to create a total country style look for your window and cafe curtains. All you need to do is to sew them in one fitting piece for your window and sew a rod pocket so you can combine it with your wood branch.
