Add beautiful layers by using curtains

A window by itself looks so conventional, mundane and boring. Sure, it serves as your view to whatever’s outside of your home but leaving it without any form of decoration seems like a mortal sin. Remedy that by getting some curtains to improve your window’s aesthetic value. Go for curtains with colors that match the interior design of the window’s room. At the same time, a curtain that has texture will surely make any room look classier. Furthermore, your curtain choice should also effectively block out sunlight to make your room cooler.

Elevate the curtain rod

A rod needs to be hanged over your windows in order for curtains to be used. Whatever you do, don’t place them too low. Aside from not looking good, sunlight can also creep in if the curtain rod is placed lower than it should. Place them well above your windows until the ends of your curtain almost touch the floor. This creates a very smooth look for your windows when the curtains are drawn.
