When you have decided to hang some curtains where there were none before or you try to change the appearance of a room it is good to keep in mind some basic rules about it. The most basic rule is that which tells us to hang the curtains as high as possible and also occupy all the space in width to give a sense of spaciousness to the room. But there are more options and we will review them with these basic rules for hanging curtains and blinds that we will see below.
Unless it is a bedroom, the curtains must let in the light and the more the better. For this we will choose fine and light fabrics that will allow us to take advantage of natural light even when they are cast.
When we have a wall with several windows a good solution is what we see here. A single rail is installed and independent curtains are hung for each window. An effect of lightness and continuity is thus achieved.
When the curtain can not reach the ground because there is a piece of furniture or something under it, we can choose a shade. In this case, a Roman shade or blind without a rigid structure has been chosen, which gives a more natural and elegant appearance.
We must take into account the architectural peculiarities of each space when installing the curtains one way or another. When the opening of the window is deep, as in this case, it is better to install the curtains inside and not on the outside as usually advised in general.
Choosing the color of the walls for our curtains is an infallible measure. They always look good and we can use other elements, pillows, a piece of furniture or any other complement to break the monotony of the color prevailing in the room.
Curtains can also be used as room dividers, as we see in this loft. A simple and practical way that allows us to expand or close the horizon whenever we want.
To get a very vertical fall you have to opt for heavy fabrics, which tend to be more expensive, or use some trick, such as using weights that are placed inside the lower hem.
The choice of the fabric should be based on the decoration of the room. In a rustic environment, like this one, these Roman curtains are perfect in natural fabrics.
Letting the curtains rest several inches on the floor helps create a bohemian and uninhibited environment. Although it is not an interesting option for cleaning enthusiasts!
