3 Creative Ways To Customize Cheap Curtains

Adding new window treatments can transform your living space. Unfortunately, high-end curtains can be quite costly. If you want to achieve a designer feel inside your living space without spending a lot of money, then you should consider customizing some cheap curtains instead.

Here are three creative ideas that you can use to turn plain and affordable curtains into drapery masterpieces.

1. Use a unique hanging system.

You can easily create visual interest in your living space by using a unique hanging system to install your cheap curtains.

All you need to do is invest in some curtain panels with fabric tabs at the tops. Measure the width of your window, and then find a piece of barn wood or driftwood that is roughly the same length. Install decorative hooks onto your piece of wood using a measuring tape to ensure the hooks are evenly spaced. Mount the wood to the top of your window, and add your curtain panels by hanging a fabric tab from each hook.

2. Create an ombre effect with artificial flowers.

If you want to bring a bit of the natural world into your indoor living space, then adding some artificial flowers to your cheap window curtain panels can be beneficial. Start by purchasing some artificial flowers in colors that coordinate with the color palette in your room.

Make sure your flowers are in colors that complement each other as well so that you can create an ombre effect. Sew or glue the blooms to your curtain panels, starting with the darkest colored flowers at the bottom and working your way up to the lightest colored flowers. 

3. Add your own design to a plain panel.

Bold geometric patterns are becoming more popular among interior designers. If you want to incorporate this trend into your living space but you can't afford to invest in designer curtain panels featuring these bold patterns, then you need to add your own design to a plain curtain panel.

Visit your local craft store to find a stencil whose pattern you find appealing. Invest in a can of spray paint, and find a work area large enough for you to spread out the curtain panel flat. Place the stencil on the panel, add the design with spray paint, and repeat until your panel features the bold geometric pattern you desire.

Finding ways to customize cheap curtains will help you give your living space a designer update without the hefty price tag. For more information, contact local professionals like AAA Blind & Shutter Factory.
