Silk Curtains

Looking for a luxurious feel for your living room or bedroom? Then think rich fabrics such as vintage silk and satin. Having custom made curtains or Roman blinds produced from these gorgeous fabrics will do more to ‘lift’ your room than a new settee or headboard would. And the best part? You don’t have to spend a fortune either since it really doesn’t cost that much thanks to the wonderful variety and choice of fabric designs in these materials available today.

At Curtains Made Simple we currently have four beautiful collections of silk fabrics to choose from: Jaipur, Venetian, Dupion and the Persian Silks.

The above fabrics can be adapted to a range of modern curtain styles and fashions such as pencil pleat, tab top and eyelet. Many people worry that having ready made curtains produced in a faux silk material will give their home a shabby chic, Victorian and period look. But that isn’t the case today as you’ll find numerous interior designers opting for vintage silk and satin for a modern look too, thanks to the fabric’s versatility and easy to handle qualities. Faux silk and vintage silk custom made curtains look particularly chic if made without pleats and instead fashioned as eye let curtains on a black metallic trendy curtain rod (or any other type of modern curtain rod for that matter).

Choose Silk Curtains For Texture and Colour

Due to its very texture silk curtains can add elegance to a room. The colours produced by vintage silk and faux silk fabrics can also add a stunning vibrancy to even the dullest and most neutral coloured of rooms. Because it’s a lightweight material, if you intend using faux silk or vintage silk curtains for a bedroom then have them lined as well to ensure they provide excellent coverage for blocking out the light.

When choosing faux silk or vintage silk curtains it’s a good idea to choose a plain colour if the room in which you intend to hang them receives a lot of direct sunlight. That’s because the curtains will fade quicker and plain shades look better in this respect – although faux silk won’t fade as quickly as vintage silk.

Faux Silk Curtains Hang Better Than Other Fabrics

The reason interior designers like to use vintage silk and faux silk is because the material actually hangs better as curtains than any other fabric (apart from linen).

You could also consider having satin panels built into your faux silk custom made curtains and Roman blinds. The clashing of textures will provide interest in itself while the gleaming colours will prove pretty sensational. Their dramatic nature also has the added benefit of detracting from other aspects of the room you’d rather keep ‘hidden’ in the background.

Today faux silk appears in many homes in the kitchen and bathroom as well as the sitting room and bedroom. It’s a lovely material to have cushions and bed spreads fashioned from as well as curtains. Why not treat your home to a touch of opulence today?
