Ways To Coordinating Your Drapes
Drapes are often used in rooms where guests might be entertained. Drapes are often attached to rods with the use of hooks, which can be decorative. There are several ways to coordinating the drapes. Here are some of them. Drapes can be bold, reserved, sheer, opaque, monochromatic, patterned or even metallic. Lengths range from floor-to-ceiling to half-window cafe-style. Many windows have multiple layers – a heavy outer layer you can tie back, a less opaque, lightweight panel that transmits light while obscuring a view, and a valance at the top to hide the curtain rod decoratively. Exploring a range of styles and designs will help you determine which ones appeal to you and suit the feeling of your home. Think about the function of the drapes in the room you are designing. If you need a happy splash of color in a dull kitchen, seek out cheerful, punchy textiles and test them in your space to see if they create the desired effect. If you want a privacy curtain in a bathroom, avoid sheers.
Don’t be bashful about mixing patterns. Clever juxtapositions breathe life into a bland space. Unexpected pairings, such as floral and stripes, exude confidence when used sparingly and deliberately. The rule of thumb for mixing patterns in a room design is to go with your gut. If it feels right, and it makes you happy, it is right. You will be the one living with your designs, so don’t feel bound to matching if it doesn’t suit your personality. To make coordinating patterns easier, think about scale. Giant polka dot drapes could overpower a delicate pinstriped couch, but would work well with a fat zebra-striped version.
