Curtains are one of the most common types of window treatment used in homes. Curtains are available in many different styles, colors, and patterns, making them an easy way to add a shot of color and pattern to your room. Typically, curtains are made of lighter weight fabric than drapes, and contain two panels. The panels typically hang from a curtain rod, or can be pleated.
Since curtains come in many different lengths - to fit basic window measurements - there are several ways to hang them, and several ways to tie back the panels, as well. Some methods include puddling the curtain panel on the floor, basic right or left tie-back, and cascading.
Curtains can be the perfect companion when paired with another window treatment such as a timeless wood blind, an insulating cellular shade, or a rustic woven wood shade. Curtains and drapes are the dessert of window treatments!
