Home interiors decoration with curtains just got more interesting – you can use curtains and curtain accessories to even hide the fault lines in your overall decoration. Things that you otherwise could do little about. Imaginatively used, curtains and their accessories can greatly enhance the visual experience or change it altogether depending on your plans. So let us see some great ideas on how to achieve these simple tricks that can make a world of a difference to your interiors.
Making a Small Window Look Larger
If you have a small window that you desire should look larger in keeping with your overall plans, all you have to do is to get a curtain rod that is bigger than the window itself. Fix the rod over the window and draw the drapes to the size of the larger rod. This will achieve a larger look in two ways.
Firstly, the area being covered by the curtains being larger than the window itself, the look will be of a bigger window. Who knows what size of window is hiding behind those oversized drapes!
Secondly, when you pull back the curtains the drapes would withdraw all the way, letting in much more light than it normally would. Lo behold! The look of bigger windows is yours!
Making a Large Window Look Smaller
Let us examine the exact opposite of the first situation, in which you have inherited large sized windows you are not too happy with.
All you need to do is use your normal sized rod, but add valances to your curtains. This would give a heavy look and give the impression of a smaller window size.
You can even add tiebacks to the curtains. This will also serve to give a heavier look to the curtains and make your window look smaller than it actually is.
Short or Tall Windows
Are you aware that you can even make the window look shorter or taller than it actually is? Yes, this can be achieved as well!
In case of short windows that you want to give a taller look, fix the curtain rod above the window frame. Creating the illusion of length will give a taller look to your window.
In case of tall windows that you want to reduce the look of, you can use draped valances to shorten the look of the window. This serves to soften the overall look and thus give a shorter look.
Now you have a window you are not very proud of, and would rather it not be there at all. While inviting a mason to brick it up would be a major job, all you need to do is to cleverly match your curtains with your walls! In effect it will reduce the attention to your window.
Use plain silk sari curtains to get the right match for your walls. These curtains made of excellent silk are available in a wide variety of colors and textures to suit each taste.
