Ideas To Hang Curtains Over Blinds
Are you ready to replace your blinds with curtains? Here are some of our favorites.
Curtains Over Horizontal Blinds
It is fashionable to hang curtains over horizontal or Venetian blinds. You can completely open and close them, or tilt them at different angles to get the perfect amount of privacy or light.
Horizontal blinds can be found in a variety of materials, including vinyl, aluminum, wood, and faux wood.
Curtains Over Roman Shade
Roman shades provide a more tailored appearance than traditional blinds. Roman shades are typically opaque and can only be drawn up or down, providing fewer options for light control.
Smooth fabrics and woods are not always ideal. Textured treatments, such as woven wood shades or velvet draperies, can, on the other hand, add depth and flair to your room.
Curtains Over Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are ideal for adding privacy, light control, and insulation. The honeycomb structure allows light in while still providing an opaque covering. Internal cells are a practical, energy-saving option because they keep hot air out and cool air in. For complete privacy, blackout options are also available.
Install unique blinds and drapes throughout your home. If you can’t replace your blinds, choose new curtains to give each room a distinct personality.
Vertical blinds are ideal for sliding doors and large windows because they open to the left and right rather than up and down.
These types of blinds come in a variety of styles and widths. To keep the slats from moving when the windows are open, loosely chain them at the bottom.
Don’t overdo it with the patterns. For the best effect, use one print and one solid. Remember that if you raise your blinds during the day, they will be out of sight. If you want to show off a beautiful pattern, use curtains rather than blinds.
Roller shades have evolved from their white vinyl forefathers. They’re inexpensive and come in a variety of materials, so you don’t have to sacrifice style to stay within your budget.
Roller shades are the best option if you want maximum light during the day and complete privacy at night.
