Accessories for tulle

To make the right choice and truly decorate your home, you need to know all the nuances. The most important of these are.

Mounting Methods:

  • Eyelets - plastic or metal bushings. They are inserted mainly in dense tissue. The color of the ring is chosen so that it harmoniously combines with the color of the cornice and tulle. There are a variety of colors, including under the skin or wood. Eyelets easily slide along the ledge, so this option is great when you need to often open / close the window.
  • Hooks - a classic version, suitable for string cornices. Having chosen this type of fastening, you need to draw the upper edge of the fabric with a braid that has small loops for hooks. The only negative is the time-consuming process of hanging and removing decorative textiles from hooks.
  • Rings - usually come with a tubular cornice. At the bottom of the ring there is a clothespin with teeth, which firmly grips the fabric. When choosing this mount, check the ease of movement of the rings along the pipe.
  • Krabiki - bulky, heavy, suitable exclusively for dense types of fabric, for example, when you decide to decorate the classic interior with curtains.
  • A fabric loop is a great option if you can sew yourself. To do this, you just need to take the material with a margin, cut off additional centimeters and put them on beautiful loops from above. But fabric loops are suitable only for a denser type of tulle.

Types of tulle. Rules for its application

To begin with, we define the main groups of fabric from which decorative textiles are made, so that it is easier to cope with the task of how beautifully to hang tulle in any room you need. It can be dense, light, patterned, embossed, plain or with a pattern.

Choose a shade of tulle and curtains

Now we list the basic rules of choice, based on the location of the room, its style:

  1. For rooms on the north side, plain light fabrics are perfect. Such fabrics should also be preferred when decorating a small window in a cramped room. Light colors visually expand the space, so the room will look more spacious and easier to read, even with rich furniture.
  2. For sunny rooms - on the contrary, you can safely choose curtains of dense and darker colors, even with a large pattern.
  3. Mesh fabrics are suitable for small windows on the south side, they can also be made short - half the window.
  4. A large tulle pattern is combined with plain wallpaper. When the interior is weighted with various details, then plain and not bright, soothing colors will help to balance the general appearance of the space, preferably in the color prevailing in the interior.
  5. If you are going to decorate the window with several types of tulle, then only one type should be textured. The same rule applies to colors, when several fabrics are adjacent to the cornice, then only one can be bright, all the rest only complement it.
  6. For the bedroom, choose a thick fabric or combine a thin with blackout curtains.

Important! Focusing on the purpose of the room, take into account the recommendations of professional psychologists. For example:

  • The unequivocal opinion is that pastel, soft blue, blue, green tones are perfect for hanging curtains in the bedroom;
  • For the living room, bright and contrasting colors are more acceptable - orange, yellow, lime or strict and elegant classic colors - beige, brown, burgundy. The first ones will create a positive, festive atmosphere, the others will emphasize solidity, a special charm, elegance and a strict style.
  • For the kitchen, materials of thematic colors or with a not-so-catchy pattern will be very appropriate.
  • It is better to decorate the nursery with themed children's curtains with the image of your favorite heroes, characters or plain pastel textiles, which will not once again excite the look and imagination of your child before bedtime.

Not recommended for curtains in the rooms where you plan to relax, such shades as: red, scarlet, purple, bright yellow, black. They will either be overly annoying over time or depress.
