Shower Curtain Rods

foto rumah minimalis– A few years ago when it came time to buying a shower curtain rod there were very few choices. Most of them were straight I shaped, white colored and very boring.

Today, however, there is a huge selection of rods on the market. Indeed, if you visit an of the popular online bathroom accessory stores such as Bed, Bath & Beyond you’ll find that there are so many choices you might become overwhelmed.

When choosing a shower rod the key question to ask is what are the other materials used in your bathroom and which material rod will match my existing color scheme. One idea is to run your questions by an experienced interior decorator who may give some great advice based on his or her experience. Before you call this person make sure that you know and understand the various materials available which include, chrome, brass, nickel and gold color.

Black Shower Curtain Ideas

bentuk rumah minimalis– Browse through any shop that sells shower curtains, like Kohls, Linens and Things or Bed Bath and Beyond, and you are sure to find a couple of great shower curtains up for sale. It is important to note, however, that black won’t work for everything – especially when it comes to a toilet or bathroom’s interior design. So here’s a question: will black beautify your bathroom or totally annihilate it? Here you’ll learn couple of factors to help you think about it.

Elegant or Gloomy

The first factor to keep in mind is style, which can either help or hinder your bathroom’s look. Black is a good idea if there are bright white, gold or silver fixtures to add a little sparkle to the dark setting, otherwise you may end up making your bathroom a gloomy place to be in.  This is particularly true for dark shades of brown, red or blue, which tend to ‘depress’ a room’s atmosphere when combined with black.

Compact or Cramped

Another factor related to style is the overall effect on a room’s size. The color black tends to bring an impression of fullness rather than space, which is why you have to be careful when using the color. If the room is tight enough as it is, black will only cramp the limited space available. On the other hand, a roomier, brighter bathroom will benefit the most from the filling properties of the color. Make sure you make the right choice.

Modern Curtains for Kitchens of Today

desain rumah minimalis modern tipe 45 – Kitchen curtains have been always been designed to bring warmth and comfort.  Cotton for durability and bright prints are the icon that marks the gathering room where family members connect.  But kitchens have evolved over the past fifty years into rooms of design and character.  It would only stand to reason that modern kitchen curtains followed the trend.

The gourmet cook demands only the best in appliances and cookware to present tantalizing recipes.  Wide open counters and streamlined cabinets require a backdrop of window dressing to fit the mood.  Box pleated fabric valances that are crisp and clean over shades or blinds can add the perfect touch. Stainless steel is warmed while remaining stately and elegent with the tasks at hand.  Soft earth colors of green, brown or gray provide a natural flow without becoming the center of attention.

Contemporary kitchens offer adaptability in quickly adding or changing a look for holidays or seasons.  Modern kitchen curtains have to be able to flow with the reds and greens of Christmas along with the orange and black of Halloween.  Neutral colors that stay consistent throughout the year are a good match for changing decor.  Heavyweight woven lace in white or cream can be plain or designed with geometrics, waves or lines that add depth to your window.  Lace modern kitchen curtains in a cafe style are timeless and light filtering for watching the seasons change.

Patio Door Curtains….Easy Does It!

jasa desain rumah minimalis – The case for curtains over patio door blinds is compelling. I sit well and truly on the fence when it comes to that debate. Reason is simple – both have merit in different decorative settings.  But for the patio door blind fan club, let me play devil’s advocate for just a while.

Here are 5 reasons to choose curtains over blinds for your patio door:

Curtains add decorative class to your room

If you are looking for something to add some more spice and character to your room, curtains are generally a better choice over blinds.

This doesn’t just stop with the actual textile which is available in thousand of colours and patterns, but also refer to the curtain poles. Poles are varied and can also give an extra boost to your room, e.g. metal curtain poles with patterns, wood poles, etc.

It doesn’t stop there either. With blinds a border is generally lacking that is superbly created by with curtains. Blinds only cover the patio door area, whereas curtains can also be used as extra decoration with the way in which it’s assembled and presented.

Patio Door Drapes: Dramatic Decorating

desain rumah minimalis modern – I don’t know about you, but when I think drapery, I think of the British Royal family with their royal residence in Windsor Castle, long hallways, high ceilings and window draping flowing from – what feels like – the heavens.

I think patio door drapery and the word ‘formal’ springs to mind, supplemented with a touch of classic elegance.

OK, I may be exaggerating a little, but I’m sure you get my point.

I know a sense of formality probably reminds you more of your spare guest room as opposed your patio doesn’t it?

However always keep in mind though that patio door drapes do, in many instances, contribute to a successful ‘bridge’ between the indoors and outdoors. Consequently if your interior is more formal, you may consider drapes as a suitable decorating option around your patio door.

First, let’s consider the difference between drapes and curtains. Basically drapes are pleated and more formal, whilst curtains are informal and generally gathered. Both are in essence long flows of fabric. They can be styled in a variety of positions, opening and closing many ways…
