Seasonal prints and colour are the basic inspiration of contemporary curtain designs. Light and airy fabric like cotton, net and light silk is preferred in spring/summer season. Flowery prints are in vogue, whether they are printed boldly on the fabric or printed in a subdued manner. Abstract and geometrical prints also make great contemporary designs for curtains. By choosing contemporary designs for curtains, you can assert how contemporary and modern is your own personality and attitude towards the changing trends of home and office furnishings. Beautiful curtain designs are also being made from used and recyclable products. Natural fibre like jute and wooden straws are also used to create wonderful contemporary designs in curtains. Multi-layered curtains are also in vogue if you wish to give your room a formal and rich look.
To add to the luxurious look trims can be added to French pleat curtains such as contrasting buttons, tassels or braid. Goblet pleated curtains as the name suggests have tubular foam or metal fasteners which create a goblet effect at the same regular intervals as the French pleated curtains. These fastenings or foam tubes should be kept in place when the curtain is hanging, but removed for cleaning. Like French pleated curtains goblet pleated curtains create a very sophisticated heading and hang to the curtains and trims either buttons, tassels or braid can be added for that finishing touch. Tab headed curtains are hung from a pole by evenly spaced fabric tabs. The first and last tabs on each curtain are positioned at the edges of the curtain. The width and length of the tabs can vary according to the width of the curtains and the size of the pole from which they will hang. The tabs are made from the same fabric as the curtain and the pole will need to extend at least 30cms either side of window, due to width of tabs. The pole will also need to be fitted at least 15cms above the window, due to the length of tabs.
