Custom window treatments are pretty expensive. You do get what you pay for, but for those of us on a decorating budget (and those of us who prefer the DIY version of decorating!), with a decent sewing machine and a pattern (or a couple of YouTube tutorials) DIY custom curtains might not be as difficult as you think. You can use any fabric you want, but the idea shown below uses sheets, which make for longer curtains.
Keep in mind, curtains aren't just for windows any more! You can take the sliding doors off of a closet and hang a curtain rod to display your newest project, while also hiding storage. I love this idea for a child's room, nursery, laundry room, and even a home office! It adds softness and texture to a room that you cannot find with a door.
Another interesting idea I have seen lately, is hanging a curtain rod in your shower, just below the ceiling and using longer curtain panels as opposed to a shower curtain. This leads your eye to take the bathroom in differently and is a fresh look (especially if you rent and cannot paint, this adds a splash of color). You can also hang curtains on the wall that your bed is on for a regal look (again, a great idea to add color if you rent and cannot paint!)
Do you have any unconventional curtain ideas that you would like to share? I would love to hear them! Post your feedback and ideas on The Home Stylist's Facebook page or, you can also find me (and post and comment!) on Style In A Snap's Facebook page. Follow me on both pages for interior decorating and home staging tips!
Until next time, happy sewing!!!
