Monochrome curtains could be a wiser choice in rooms that already rely on attention-grabbing patterns, whether that’s on your wallpaper or sofa upholstery. This will avoid a clashing effect. Plus, you can keep everything looking cohesive by choosing curtains in one of the three main colors of your palette. Neutrals drapes tend to be more timeless, whereas brighter hues can become a show-stopping accent.

Buying Guide

Curtains are a great investment; they can give your room a whole new personality. Although linen is a very soft and subtle fabric, it is extremely durable which is why interior designers prefer it for custom made curtains because it hangs so well. If you are considering buying some French linen curtains, here is a guide to help you.

No matter what type, style, or design of curtain you buy, there are always going to be four header types to consider:

  • Tab top: These curtains are made with large loops on the top which allow the pole to thread through. They create even folds making the curtains hang well.
  • Pencil pleat: Pencil pleat curtains are perhaps the most difficult to attach, they involve fixing small hooks into the header tape and then hanging them with rings from a track pole.
  • Eyelet: Eyelet curtains are also known as ring top curtains. They are made with metal eyelets on the crest of the curtain. The pole is placed through these holes to hang the curtains.
  • Slot top: You will also hear slot top referred to as rod pocket; these curtains are placed directly onto the pole. The desired amount of gather is created by ruffling the curtains along the pole.

French linen curtain generally fall into three categories:

  • Short and sweet: As the name suggests they are not full-length French linen curtains, they only cover the bottom half of the window and are tied at the middle with the material of your choice.
  • Classic pleats: They are long and drapy providing a combination of style and decoration.
  • Loop the loop: Perfect for the country style look; these French linen curtains have a simple tie top design, they look great whether they are in the kitchen, bathroom or shed retreat.

  • Patterned fabric. French linen curtains are always going to look good; however, there are certain things you will need to think about when it comes to patterned fabric. You want to make sure that they look good when the curtains are opened as well as closed. You should also keep in mind that certain colors like red, orange and yellow will fade when exposed to the sunlight for long periods.
  • The pole. The curtain pole might seem insignificant in comparison to the curtains, but it is equally as important. Make sure you choose one that will suit the style of your home. You might choose a plain pole and decorative curtains or vice versa.
  • No lining. Linen curtains are unlined and they typically look best when combined with a blind
  • Measurements. Curtains are such an important part of the décor that you want to make sure they fit properly. Use a measuring tape to measure the width and length of your window area.

French linen curtains look fabulous no matter which windows they are gracing, so now you know what to do, measure up and get shopping!
