Curtains To Decorate Your Home

There are only so many ways to skin a cat, so to speak — where did that expression come from, anyway? — and only so many ways to dress a window.  That being said, today’s roundup of gorgeous window treatments offers a few variations on the theme, updating classic roman shades and blinds and finding a magic balance of frilly and chic in several sets of sleek, ethereal curtains.  When a quick update is needed and a ground-up renovation just isn’t in the cards, something as simple as new drapes or shades can change the tone of a room as dramatically as it changes the light.

Room Darkening Blackout Curtains

What We Like: With these curtains, you can open up your windows and let in the light without letting out any heat. The Grommet style is perfect for smaller window openings as it includes a grommet at the top of each panel that allows them to be hung from curtain rods or hooks. If using tie-backs instead, there are two velcro ties with which to close off one side of the window completely before opening another half way – just enough so that some natural sunlight comes through while still keeping away cold temperatures!

Buying Guide

Read our buying guide below to learn about important factors, such as size and heading type, before purchasing curtains for your home.

  • Heading type: There are four different types of curtain headings you can choose from. They all affect the look and function a tad differently, so it’s worth taking time to think about what your needs might be before deciding on one or the other!
    • Grommet:Curtain rods slide directly through large metal rings sewn into the top of curtains with this heading. The waves created from the fabric can be used to create two different looks: a clean, classic look or a dramatic style that’s perfect for theatre productions and opera houses!
    • Tab: Curtains with this type of heading have tabs or loops of fabric along the top that fit around a rod. Occasionally, they have buttons that open and close the tabs, allowing you to wrap them around the pole without taking off any parts from it.
    • Pocket:An interesting way to add a scrunched look is by using long pocket sewn along the top of your curtain. Once it’s hung, slide it over the rod for an instantly twisted and wrinkled appearance that will liven up any room.
    • Pencil pleat: Curtains with a pencil pleat heading have an adjustable pleated top and are mostly used for curtain tracks.
  • Width/length:There is always a crucial balance between the aesthetic appeal of your curtains and the functional aspect. If you want to make sure that no light will leak in from outside, it’s important for them to cover all gaps on both sides when closed – this way there won’t be any small cracks where one end stops while another continues past it.
  • Blackout properties: The dark curtains will block out all light so you can sleep or watch TV without any distractions. In the winter, these drapes are insulated to keep your house nice and warm when it gets chilly outside. And in the summertime, they’ll also shield your house from those hot rays!
