Small windows can be draped as beautifully as regular sized window, provided you have some innovative small window curtains up your sleeve.
If you have shifted to new house and it has some very small, less than the regular sized windows, it can be quite challenge finding appropriate curtains to cover them with. As it is the curtains which lend kind of character to the windows, making them look appealing and attractive, it is very important that you choose the best ones! When it comes to small windows, you should always look for curtains which are simple and functional. If you choose some very heavy and decorative small window curtains, they will look very overwhelming and may seem out of place too.
The below given small window curtains ideas will further help you out in choosing the right drapes for small window, which will give it the perfect shape and look.
When choosing small window curtains, always in for vertical patterns. Vertical patterns on the curtains, will lend length to your windows. As for the cloth, go in for the sheers, as they help the light pass through and enter the room, much more than any other cloth. To further add on to the length of the windows, let the sheer curtains fall, almost to the floor. This will give the illusion that your windows stretch to the floors, thus making them appear much taller than they actually are!
If the window is wide but its length is short i.e. it is not very tall, to add illusion of length to it, place your curtain rod, just below the ceiling, instead of immediately where the window starts from, as is done with regular sized windows. If the small window has sill underneath it, then obviously, you cannot hang the curtain till the floor, as it will hide its architectural beauty. In such case, one of the useful small window curtains is to place the rod just below the ceiling and hang valance from it that reaches to the top of the window.
As you can see, there are so many innovative small window curtains that you can utilize, to make them look stunning. Choose any of these or come up with few of your own, to transform your small windows into decorative and creative focal points of your room!
