What finials should you use? Finials are the decorative pieces that go on the end of the curtain rod. They vary from very simple to very decorative. Simple finials could be balls. More decorative could match the theme of your room. For example, a cowboy room needs horseshoes. A princess room might need a star. An animal themed room might like an animal shaped finial. If you are going to use a curtain that covers your curtain rod, you might want a decorative finial since that is all that is going to be seen.
One thing to remember about these curtain bars is that they are meant for light weight drapery sets for smaller windows. As such, it is recommended that you double check the efficiency of the specific curtain rod you are purchasing to avoid any injury down the road. If you have any doubts as to whether or not the rod can hold up the drapery for the window it will be used on; ask an associate or email the retailer to ensure you have all your bases covered.
If you want to be gender specific then think curtains with prints of cars, airplanes, trucks, cranes, animals, trains for boys. For girls its prints of mermaids, fairies, princesses, dolls, puppies, kittens that make nice window accessories. Blue for boys and pink for girls is the usual color chosen but you can pick any bright color like yellows, oranges, and light green, white with bright prints and so on.
After you have installed your panel curtain, include a valance over it. Valances are typically patterned and used to accent plain curtains. For a whimsical look in a child's bedroom, switch that thinking around. A patterned curtain can be accented by a plain fabric valance. To add visual interest and appeal to the valance, decorate it with a light dusting of glitter or sequins. Not only will it make the valance more interesting, it will also accent the patterned curtain.
Net curtains. Net curtains are back in fashion, and should no longer be associated with fusty, old-fashioned interiors. Plain white, thin net curtains make a room appear more elegant, and from a practical side, stop people peering into your living room. If you prefer patterns, it's advisable to keep it minimal, or focussed only on the bottom half of the curtain. Patterns such as leaves and flowers are usually preferred, as they serve as a connection between the outside and inside space.
