Perhaps some of the easiest window treatments to install are curtain panels. Curtain panels from Country Porch Home Decor look elegant, are easy to hang, and to open and close, and they allow optimum light into a room. They are especially suited to longer full length glass doors or windows. You can choose from a vast array of different material, and you should be easily able to find something that matches with your overall room décor. If you are handy at sewing, you should be able to make these fairly simply yourself. Many are pleated at the top, however there are plenty of patterns available online that give you step-by-step instructions on how to sew them.
- The most important thing that you should consider when designing your window is your curtain rod. You can find a large assortment of different styles of rods ranging from standard metal rods to fashionable wood, or faux wood rods.
- Metal rods look stylish with most fabrics, especially if the curtains are actually eyelet curtains as the rod does not feature prominently when you hang these types of country style. If you are hanging panels with rings at the top, however, you can set your treatment off very nicely by also purchasing a decorative curtain rod with matching rings. This way the rod itself also adds to the appeal and the look of the curtain panels.
- Paying special attention, not only to the fabric used for your curtain panels but also to the eyelets, rings or rods can make a big difference in how appealing your curtains are. The accessories that you use can also either dress-up the room or dress it down for a more casual look.
- Remember to also get matching ties, so that you can open up your curtains during the day to let maximum sunlight into your home. For the best look, do not open your curtains all the way to the side, but rather allow them to fall in a gentle arc shape with more width at the top of the curtain than the bottom.
Lighten up your Kitchen with Curtain Panels
In most cases, if you only have a window above your kitchen window, you cannot really do a whole lot to bring in natural lighting. You can still add a valance to the curtain over the sink and add to small sheer panels that can be tied to the side to provide a bit more appeal. On the other hand, if you have other windows in the kitchen, you are in luck. You have all kinds of options.
Curtain panels are ones that are one long piece of material that normally flow to the floor. You can use one or more panel according to the look you wish. If you use several country curtains, you can actually have a nice flowing appeal that will enhance the overall beauty of your kitchen. Curtain panels can be used for patio doors, sliding doors or just a door to the outside. If you have an old metal door that does to the patio, you can easily use curtain panels and give your kitchen an entire new look.
