Many years back when I was growing up, an Indian neighbour had very beautiful bead curtains that I have never seen again. She used to do the bead curtains herself with lots of detail and care. Those were the days when few people could put up bead curtains.
Fast-forward people are now into vintage and handmade things. One of those things is the bead curtains. Bead curtains are used for door and window treatments and as room dividers, too. They come in different sizes, colours and varieties like pearl, wood, mirror, crystal and even sea shells.
Bead curtains add a unique element of privacy and also add a lot of character and colour to the room.
In some homes, doorways allow a grand view of what is happening beyond it, something not all of us appreciate. If you want the light and air that comes through the doorway, yet you need the privacy it doesn’t allow, the best thing that you can use is a beaded curtain.
If you are aware of the kinds of beads there are and the number of colours, sizes, and varieties they are available in, you can also try making your own beaded curtains for your doorway or room – they are quite easy to make.
Now, the manner and place you want to use these beaded curtains will decide the type you want to use. Beaded curtains only provide a limited amount of privacy, and if you want complete privacy, you will have to resort to other methods to get that. You can use beaded curtains along with regular curtains and drapes, to make sure that you get the necessary privacy. On the other hand, if all you want to do is separate two rooms by means of a visual barrier, then these beaded curtains are the perfect choice. This is also a good idea if you are hosting a party and you need to cordon off an area by using beaded curtains on a doorway leading to the party hall. Not only will it give the necessary privacy, it will also add a wonderful decorative element to the room.
Beaded curtains may be used to create a barrier between two doorways. As such, they can perform a very good function of providing that barrier without actually creating a cumbersome block in passage.
Some people say that beaded curtains are girly girl. While this might be true, they can still be used in any décor theme.
Beaded curtains are not only found in homes, but also restaurants, bars and even bistros. I have seen quite a number of beaded curtains in some bistros and they create quite a stir in the entire décor, giving the place a unique feel.
Beaded curtains can give your interiors a gorgeous look and unique feel. The reflective quality of glass beads or the earthiness of wooden beads creates another décor mix on its own.When it comes to choosing your beaded curtains, it’s good to choose from what you think defines your taste best.
