Floor-length curtains. These are curtains where the fabric either just touches the floor, or drapes over it with excess material (the latter is called puddle-length). This gives an impression of luxury and decadence, and you don't even need to have long windows to make use of such curtains: in fact, floor-length curtains on regular windows tricks the eye, and makes the windows appear bigger and thus brings more light into the room.
If you are finding the option of buying new curtains difficult to justify in this financial climate, you needn't worry. You can always make your own thermal and blackout curtains simply by attaching thermal linings to the face of your existing curtains. Thermal linings are made using a polyester and cotton blend fabric material which has acrylic foam as a layer. In some cases a thin layer of aluminum is used instead.
In cold weather, it can be almost impossible to regulate the weather in our kids' rooms without it costing us a lot of money in energy bills. Thermal curtains help keep the temperature warm and toasty by insulating the windows, thereby keeping draft out. This helps us save a small fortune in utility bills as we don't have to turn up the heating as high as we usually would. Good choices for kids rooms are thermal curtains in bright, vibrant colors like orange, yellow, green or lilac. I also recommend keeping the curtains open in the day to allow some light to enter the room.
Another thing that you must take into consideration is the texture of the curtain. Kids are not attracted by elegant textures; they love cartoon designs. In simpler words, your kid may love to spend time in the bathroom when his shower curtain has Tom & Jerry, Sponge Bob, Mickey Mouse, Power Rangers or Walt Disney Cartoon characters. You can hit the bulls-eye by choosing a shower curtain design that has your kid's favorite cartoon character imprinted on it.
Unlike straight panel curtains that are rectangular in shape, shape curtains are made in a variety of different shapes. Leaves, flowers, cars and trucks are some of the most common styles of shape curtains. These cut outs of whimsical patterns are usually custom-made or found only at high end specialty stores. If you are searching for a truly unique look, a shape curtain is definitely the way to provide it.
