If you were to consider the many different types of curtains, you will be left feeling confused; there are a wide range of creatively developed curtains. According to your taste and personal style, the type of curtain you choose reflects your personality and reflects the feel of your home you wanted to create. Depending on the room you want to dress with curtains, the function and style of each considered curtain needs to be discussed and well thought out. From kitchen windows to bedroom windows, the function of these curtains must suit that particular room. If you choose translucent curtains such as nets or sheer curtains which can often create a subtle light effect on your room during the day, it is important to remember that these curtains do not provide privacy, especially at night time. These types of curtains can be used in conjunction with opaque curtains to aid in desired privacy. These net curtains can aid in preventing glare during the day, although not totally blocking light. If your window requires more privacy during the day time from peering eyes, consider using sheer or net curtains, along with opaque curtains for night privacy.
NB It is important that you get the sequence 100% correct before you make the marks and the holes, should you realise that you want to change the roses around after the holes have been made you run the risk of having gaping holes in your curtain which could look rather messy. The next step will be to measure the top width of the window frame and then cut the dowel or curtain wire in order to fit (using either a pliers if it is wire or a hand saw if you are cutting the dowel). If you are using curtain wire go to the top of the window frame and attach one screw eye on the left and right hand side of the frame. Ready made organza curtains should have tabs at the top, attach hooks to both ends of the curtain wire and then thread the wire through the tabs of both curtains and attach the wire to the screw eyes on the window frame. If you are using a wooden dowel use cup hooks and not screw eyes for the dowel to rest on. Thread the dowel through the tabs and place on cup hooks.
Whenever we consider dressing a window we need to understand how we react to light. If the same type of lighting is used in every room of the house it can create a sense of monotony. The senses of a human being are stimulated by variation and contrast. Light affects the way in which we see and perceive colours, shapes and textures. If lighting is not used correctly it can cause a space to appear dull and washed out. The opposite applies if we are able to use lighting to our advantage, we could create a sense of warmth and intimacy as well as bring a certain energy and mood to a particular area, particularly in the bedroom or living room. Light is diffused through sheer/light fabrics and we can therefore use this principle to create a wonderful ambiance within a room.
