A good pair of curtains can transform the look and feel of a room. Like accessories, curtains add colour, pattern, texture and personality. Curtains can also enhance a space, giving the illusion of height, visually expanding the size of a window and enhancing the way light flows into a room.
Selecting a curtain style and pattern is just one piece of the puzzle when it comes to adding curtains to your decor. Measuring for the right size and hanging your curtains in the correct way will make all the difference in how the curtains look and function in your room.
With various depths, materials, shapes, prints, and colours, curtains really set the tone and style of a room. To open the whole wide world of curtains, we have created a simple glossary of the best types of curtains depending on your style and lifestyle.
If you look closely at the top of curtains (a.k.a. the header), you’ll notice that some are pinched at the top while others are strung through the rod itself. You’ll also notice a great variety in the style of pinching. These pinches create different types of pleats, thus, defining the level of fullness, shape, and volume of the curtains.
