IT is that time of the year again that we need to take a look at our curtains and see whether they are still fit or need a change.Like the design of many other household effects, curtains too have undergone a lot of changes to accommodate the changing requirements and styles of home owners. And the change is not confined to use of different materials for making curtains.
Even the style of hanging them down has undergone changes. That is because with the changing times, people no longer look at curtains merely as a functional device to save them from the sun and provide privacy anymore, but also as means of dressing up their homes to impress visitors with their unique designs. Of the many prevalent styles, a trend that is on form these days includes eyelet curtains.
As any person who is familiar with interior décor will tell you, curtains make a room—but only when they are chosen correctly. When it comes to window treatments, it’s always a matter of color and fabric, length and lining, and the design that will give that eye catching effect to whomever comes to the room and eyelet curtains are proving to be one of the most popular styles of curtains today.
Fabric is an essential part of choosing eyelet curtains, since the material will dictate how well your curtains function and hold up over time. If they are too heavy, they may not fold crisply when drawn; and when they are too light they may not fall in place very well.
Eyelet Curtains are an easy yet stylish curtain for your window dressing. They are becoming ever more popular for the modern day homes. Eyelet Curtains can easily slide through any curtain rod which gives you an impressive clean and simple look. They can be used for windows, change rooms or as temporary room dividers.
Eyelet curtains are made with circular metal holes at the top. They are created this way so that a curtain rod can easily pass through them in order for them to be held up. For the most part, this type of curtain runs from the top of the window all the way down to the floor and will usually be pleated. They come in many different styles and can be found in a variety of materials.
Many eyelet curtains are complimented by an eyelet curtain valance. This valance, or header, will hide the curtain rod and the eyelet curtain’s metal holes. The header is used to make the curtains more attractive but is not necessary. Essentially, it is up to the home owner whether or not to install eyelet curtain headers.
Another advantage of eyelet curtains is that one can come up with unique and lavish curtain hardware like using glass finials, gold or silver-plated curtain rings or even wooden rings depending on your chosen color scheme. Whether one chooses to have plain, patterned, flowered or even checked, eyelet curtains will always give that perfect finish to provide the room with elegance that we only see in palaces and state houses.
