Curtain Design

Saturday, 07 August 2010

Curtain DesignCurtain is the finest invention of window treatments. Whatever you do to make your room look lavish and attractive it will look dull without appropriate window treatment, so drapery and curtains should be chosen thoroughly. The drapery make up the interior and if the living room is designed in classic style, the heavy Gobelin drapery make it more solid while it looks cozy and homey when the curtain is made from organza. Then, the curtain should match the bedspreads and pillows and accentuate on the nature and design of the particular room.

It is difficult to find drapery and bedspreads to perfect the room. And one of the important things is color. Color can do many things from calming your mood to stimulating your appetite. And when you choose a color for interior design you may face troubles. Color choice is too personal, intimate and biased.

Yet, fabric and curtain design matter. And this is a real art work to choose the appropriate drapery. If you are not sure in your skills, the professional designers or shop-consultants may help you. The interior design should be elaborated just by a single person, to avoid mixing styles and preferences. And when you go shopping for drapery, pay attention to the types and style of curtains, and fabric they are made from. Those who really care of their dwelling safety may look for incombustible fabric from Trevira CS fiber. A wide range of assortment allows choosing the right fabric which does not need additional treatment. Thanks to unique Trevira CS fibers, the drapery are hard to inflame, they are hypoallergic without any chemicals. Though, design of these draperies is customary.

The history of curtain design goes back to XVII century when double silk curtains with runners and hidden lambrequins, and later on Louis XIV was involved in choosing drapery for his palace. Then Gobelins were mainly used while the dark-red and green velvet with patterns just underlined the lavishness and luxury of palaces. In XVIII the walls of luxury houses were decorated with fabric and the drapery matched them. And the drapery with festoons from silk, brocade and mere cotton printed fabric. The windows treated with drapery from the English printed cotton with patterns of exotic flowers, fruits and stems were too popular.

In XIX century the sphere of curtain design underwent sea changes and thanks to mass manufacture of a plenty of new fabric, every single piece was decorated and treated in fabric. Though, designers put attempts to create the atmosphere with the lightning when the drapery really looked like decorative elements. Yet, the draperies with lambrequins were used to treat doors. Tassels, fringes, lambrequins, braid and other drapery accessories came that time and in XX century absolutely new fabric was manufactured from synthetic fabric which come as natural as they could be.

When thinking and working on curtain design, one should consider the fabric, color and the variety of types which look appropriate for particular room. A classic solemn hall will look appropriate with French drapery. When the window should be made lighter and the interior is preferred less-weighted, then the roll drapery will suit the room and the maximum functionality is achieved with the light and weightless model of drapery. When the window area is not too spacey, the Roman drapery can be used which go up in vertical folds. The stylish post-modern interior approves drapery on eyelets or hinges. As for the interior designed in minimalism style, the Japanese shades will be suitable to emphasize the uniqueness of the room.

Today one is welcome to go and get the curtains designed in the required style from any fabric depending on the room and prices, though money should not be saved here since windows serve as eyes of the room and when people enter the room, they pay attention to drapery and curtains first.

If you make efforts and choose the unique style of drapery, the disadvantages of the room may be hidden and you may get a business office or a cozy sitting-room, turn a customary urban kitchen into the country-styled room, and the most important is to screen the owner off the world outside the windows.
