Windows that are decorated never fail to brighten up any room, whereas those that aren’t can often add to a room feeling dull and boring. For this reason, it is necessary for anyone who plans to do some decorating to carefully consider his/her window curtains, because that choice will ultimately determine the splendour or dullness of the decorative efforts. Priscilla curtains, either in a lace or a sheer form, are traditionally favoured by many for a good number of reasons.
For one, they are flexible decorative items and they can accentuate any window that they are decorated with. For another, most Priscilla variants exude that feminine softness with a hint of elegance and class. Priscilla decorative options can never go wrong when they are either used as decorations for the home setting, may they be for the living room window, the kitchen window, or the bedroom window.
One of the most popular variants of this curtain includes lace Priscilla curtains. These curtains are widely popular among couples who want to have window curtains that are romantic and sensual. Although most lace curtains come in white, they can also be offered in different colours. Lace curtains can greatly accentuate any Victorian-themed decor, and because of this, class and sophistication are easy to achieve with this Priscilla option. The lace curtains are usually held back by matching ruffled ties, and the valance is most commonly used as topper. Once it is held back, the window becomes an inviting sight to behold as the bottom part, when pulled back, reveals the beautiful outside landscape.
Sheer Curtains #
To highlight big windows and soften the sun’s rays, a sheer curtain is your best option. Sheers have been used for many years. Besides their practical use, sheers will also add character to your room.
This lightweight curtain can be used alone or with another heavier fabric. The usage depends on the amount of sunlight you want to let into the room, for instance, if you want a warm room with lots of sunlight flooding in, you would use only the sheer curtain. If you decided to go only with sheer, you could make them three times the width of your window. The gathers will give you your privacy.
You could also get a little creative and leave the top part of your window open. You will still have your privacy but at the same time, the sunlight entering from the top of the window will brighten up your room dramatically.
Sheer curtains are the perfect choice if you have indoor plants, especially orchids. This curtain will protect your plants from the sun’s rays yet give them enough sunlight to keep them alive.
What Are Sheer Curtains? #
Sheer curtains are special curtains that can be used for a numerous amount of things. These beautiful pieces of furniture have the capability to liven up most homes. But what exactly are these things?
They are called what their called because of the type of fabric that’s used to make them. The fabric in these curtains is called sheer. Sheer is a very light, thin fabric that can be used for numerous things.
When trying to add some spunk to a room color always comes to mind. With them you can choose colors to go with the room, which can absolutely liven up any room if you do it right. Certain colors bring out other colors and some colors can brighten or darken a room as well. So with color alone your curtains can play a huge role in how the appearance of the room is.
Like stated before, being able to darken or lighten a room can be essential in certain rooms. For instance, maybe a nursery room where your infant needs to sleep. Rooms like this must be dark to get your little tinker to go to bed as easy as possible. Or how about your own bedroom? I myself have some sheers on my windows to help block out light. I love to sleep in dark, dark rooms. These shades help me get this affect.
