The Hottest Window Covering Trend This Winter

If you’re on the lookout for the right window covering this Winter then look no further than Dollar Curtains & Blinds floor to ceiling curtains. Short curtains are out and floor to ceiling curtains are in! Short curtains do exactly what short pants do - They shorten the height of your windows, and the height of your rooms, making them feel more enclosed.

 

Designed to hang the full length of windows, custom-made floor to ceiling curtains are a must. Hanging curtains as high as possible creates the illusion of height to a room, making windows look bigger and rooms feel more spacious, so it’s no surprise they are becoming more and more popular in Australian homes.

One of the key reasons behind the growing demand for floor to ceiling curtains is the fact that most newly built condominiums, apartments, and houses are modeled for the modern demographic, and feature large glass doors or floor to ceiling glass walls in the property. Floor to ceiling windows are aesthetically attractive, and they give the room a brilliant visual effect while providing the residents with a unique sense of freedom. Think about being lucky enough to live on a beach-front property or in serene hilly areas, or even with a pretty backyard garden!

Something important to consider is the presentation and visual effects. Ceiling height is also a key factor in how high the curtains should be hung. Hanging the curtains at ceiling level maximizes the light that shines through the window, and makes the walls look taller as well. Some people like to hang the curtain just above the window trim, letting the curtain fabric to pool at the floor and create an appealing effect. In homes with floor to ceiling windows, it is rare but certainly possible to have some wall space between the top of the window and ceiling.

Another way to add spice to the appearance is the curtain track length; it should exceed the width of the window slightly. For those with floor to ceiling windows, the obvious choice is to go for ceiling mount curtain tracks which let the curtains hang from the ceiling to the floor. The ultimate goal is to preserve the balance between the curtains and the rest of the room, and present an aesthetically pleasing ambience.
