Curtains speak for a room, whether it’s loud or soft, eloquent or retro, timeless or modern. Curtains control the style of the room and many a room doesn’t feel complete without them, which is why the decisions that go into choosing your curtains are so important.
When choosing curtains, keep these important considerations in mind. Are the curtains to open and close or will they be stationary panels? Should the hardware be a decorative element or is it functional only? Is light control important? What heading should you use? Should the curtains be lined or perhaps lined and interlined?
Starting from the top down, decide if you want to see the hardware to hang the curtains and should it be functional or decorative. Curtains that hang on a pole with rings are more decorative. The poles, rings and finials add that complementing element that says “elegant”.
If the curtains are to be open and closed often, a track with wheeled carriers may be appropriate. These tracks are available with decorative fascia, contemporary metals, or inexpensive aluminum. A CoCo Curtain Studio designer can help you decide.
Next decide on your style. Do you want traditional, transitional, or contemporary? Is Country Chic your look? Choosing the right pleat creates not only a specific look at the heading of the curtain and the fall of the fabric beneath it but also the style.
Finishing touches can be made by adding trim along the leading and bottom edges. Lining and interlining not only protects your fabric but it helps your panels to hang fuller and more luxurious.
A CoCo Curtain designer can not only help find the right fabric but also guide you in hardware, headings, linings, and design.
