People who own homes usually have one last item on their home’s to do list, and that is choosing the right curtain styles for each room in the home. It is a disheartening task that most put off till the bitter end or never accomplish. The reasons vary, but money and lack of knowledge in selecting what works for each room’s design are high on the list of frustrated homeowners worldwide. The actual step of making a final selection is tough, especially if a person is ordering custom drapery. What if they hate the way it looks once the window treatments are installed? There are no refunds on custom made orders in just about any business, and no one wants to take that type of risk.
First, do not go the custom drapery way until getting some experience with selecting the right fabric, colors, and curtain rods for each room in your home. Start with the easy windows, like the kitchen and bathrooms. They are small and cost very little to pick out kitchen curtains or bathroom curtains. The simple and easy types of window coverings will be eyelet curtains. They simply slip on to the curtain rod through sewn in metal holes or what are called grommets into the top edge of the fabric. This will allow you to focus on what is important, and that is blending the correct colors together to make the room feel like it is professionally designed.
For practice purposes, just keep it simple and shop online to come up the combinations that you think will work with your selected window to transform. Then print out your selections and take them to the local stores that sell discounted curtains and drapery. Purchase a few selections and take them home to see how well your choices will work out, and return them if they are not a match. Keep repeating this process until you have a winner.
Sometimes you just feel like you may not be able to match things up as you see them do on home and garden TV. Did you ever think about taking photos of the room you are having trouble with and emailing some of the designers on the many interior shows that air on that network? They are always answering emails on air, and it is a good chance that they will help you find what works for your needs as well.
