Choosing The Right Window Swags
Window swags have been in existence for many years and still its popularity has continued to spread in today’s radical and modern designs. Choosing the best window swags for your window depends on several factors. Before making a selection you must first consider your budget, the window on which the curtains will be hung, the decor of the room, and your personal decorating style. Window swags are one of the most popular curtain options, and they come in many colors, styles and fabrics. Window swags are two separate curtains that, when hung, flank either side of the window. A matching insert valance is often hung between the pair, giving them the look of one complete curtain. The versatility of window swags may play a role in their popularity. They can be hung on a decorative rod and used as the only window treatment, or as an accent over shades or blinds. They can also be hung over panels or sheers, adding both style and dimension to the window.
When choosing window swags, consider the room in which they will be hung. Some rooms — the dining room, for instance — tend to require a more formal window treatment. Window swags used in a dining room would best be hung over sheers or panels for an elegant look. Other rooms — such as the kitchen and family room — lend to have a more casual atmosphere and, therefore, could have swags hung alone over the bare window or over blinds.
