Beaded Curtains Bring Fascination Back
Beaded curtains instantly add height to any room and are an easy way to add color, sound, texture and light to a room. Beaded curtains are dividers or curtains that are composed of multiple strings of beads placed in close proximity to create the general look of a drape or curtain. A curtain of this kind is sometimes used to divide a room into two separate areas, or to provide a decorating accent that helps to highlight some feature of the space. Beaded curtains can be composed from a wide range of materials, including wood, bamboo, or various types of plastic. One of the more common examples of a beaded curtain is the beaded door curtain. Sometimes employed as a way to limit the visual access to another room, beaded door curtains have the advantage of allowing verbal communications to continue while providing no barrier to slow down free movement between the connected rooms. For example, a beaded curtain hung in the doorway separating a den from a kitchen makes it possible to continue a conversation with the cook without exposing the condition of the kitchen to anyone sitting in the den.
Using beaded curtains as room dividers is also a quick and easy means of giving an open space definition for more than one function. A large room, such as those found in loft apartments, can make use of a beaded curtain to establish specific living and dining areas. A beaded curtain may also provide an inexpensive and decorative way to separate the sleeping area from other areas of the loft as well. The curtains can easily be suspended from the rafters using simple “S” hooks and dowels to hold the rows of beads in place.
