Want your kids’ windows to have a little casual elegance? Skip the rings and go straight to one of these artsy ways to hang curtains in their room…..tabbed, tied, looped, and pierced.
Similar yet different, all four methods are popular for dressing kids’ room windows, both boys and girls, all ages, from baby to teen. Similar because they all need a decorative rod and can be stationary or moved by hand.
Differences? Take a look!
Tabbed: a looped piece of fabric with one end attached to the curtain and the other end exposed. The exposed end is attached with an ornament of some kind that is functional or decorative.
|Decorative buttons, fixed or stationary.||Attach with buckles for a casual look.||Use buttons on sheers for an airy look.|
Tied: two fabric strips attached to the curtain on one end and tied together over the curtain rod.
|Knotted with long streamers in contrasting color.||Bright colored ribbon tied in a knot.||Bows are the focal point when colors are the same.|
Looped: fabric, ribbon, or rope attached to the curtain with no visible end with curtain rod threaded through the loop or each loop on a separate hanger.
|Loops hang from separate hooks mounted on board over the window.||Branch used instead of curtain rod is threaded through loops.|
Pierced: curtains with a series of grommets or buttonholes across the top with curtain rod threaded through holes or cord is looped through the holes with rod threaded through cord.
The artsy style or pizazz comes from the combination of fabric, colors or patterns selected. You can go for understated elegance or a whimsical focal point. Get creative and have fun dressing the kids’ windows with style!
