Decorate your kitchen with curtains

Adding that final touch to your kitchen decorating scheme can be surely done with curtains. Even the entire decorating theme can be based on curtains that add up to the favourite list of yours. You should make sure that the designs add to the theme and not detract from it - it does not matter when and how you incorporate them.

Available in all kinds of colours, shapes and materials, there is a huge variety of curtains for you to choose from for that perfect look of your kitchen, matching the decorating scheme. Just follow some of these simple rules that will help you select just the right kind of kitchen curtain:-

Avoid going overboard

For the kitchen that already has a lot of pattern on the walls and floors, the best type of curtain that will make the room classy has to be a simple one. Vice versa, if the kitchen is plain, then going for a patterned curtain is the best bet.

Colour co-ordination 

It is advisable to go for kitchen curtains that match the other colours and themes in the room in order to avoid making the room look like a complete mess and uncoordinated. 

Style co-ordination

The best thing to do would be buying the style of curtains that match with the style of your kitchen. For instance, if it’s a Victorian style kitchen, then lace panels will do great and in case of a sleek contemporary style, a short café curtain in modern style fabric will just spice up the entire ambience.

Getting the right size

Fitting your kitchen curtains to the window plays a very important role in giving the precise look. Making the curtains hang just below the end of the window and covering the top of the window casing with a valance is most appropriate. 

Besides following all these fine pointers for getting that perfect curtain for your kitchen, don’t forget the safety measures that you must keep in mind after installation of the beautiful drapes. Make sure that whatever material you choose for your curtain, it should not be flammable. For this, the best choice will and always remain cotton. But as times are becoming more and more modern, newer stylish materials are coming into the picture and anyone would love to get those for their kitchens. So, while doing so, if at all you chose to go for a fancy material which has the possibility of easily catching fire, plan the placement of the kitchen appliances like the gas burner and other fire related items in such a way that they are at a proper distance from the curtains. After all safety comes first, and once you are safe you can design and decorate your room in the way you want.
