Functionality: Both blinds and curtains have the same functionality behind them, which is light control and privacy. Curtains block are known to shut out light, as well as stop those walking by from peering through your home. Curtains add an extra dimension as they are decorative, which can allow you to shine a controlled amount of light and still block out the view from the outside. Whether you choose thick curtains, or lightweight, they can all be adjusted to your needs, but are no longer beneficial once they are wide open. Sheer curtains are normally combined in order to get the benefits once curtains are closed and open.
Cafe Curtains - Traditional Home: If a traditional home look is what you want, the brass rods with finial will be great for you. Or you can use spring loaded rods for that matter, it all depends on your personal taste. Brass rod is usually hanged by small brackets, which someone find cute, but you must know that they will be visible on your window frame. So if you don't like that, skip it. Choose spring loaded rods because they will fit on your window frame without being visible. The pocket on your cafe curtain will make sure of that.
Here are some guiding design principles that can assist you in selecting the right drapes for your beautiful home: Harmony and Unity - In general, you can achieve a better result if you choose curtains that can bring a sense of unity and harmony to the room in question. This is often a function of taking the time to recognize the architectural style with which you are working and then trying to make the most of it – as opposed to covering it over or just pretending it isn’t there. You can also harmonize your surroundings by choosing colors that are already a part of the room’s decor, especially those used in accent pillows. Also, crisp folds tend to be more pleasing to the eye than excessive draping.
Curtain Rods Selecting The Right Type For Your Window, Visible, Invisible... How Do I Choose: So let's take a look at one of the first decisions you'll make when picking out a new curtain rod: visible or invisible rods. And that requires a clarification: the invisible rods really aren't totally invisible. The mostly invisible rods are completely covered - invisible - only when the drapes or curtains are closed. When your curtains are open part of the rod is visible. In other words your curtain rod still needs to complement your decor whether it's mostly visible or mostly invisible.
