If the phrase “modern curtain” seems like an oxymoron to you, you’re not alone. When most people think of curtains in general, they think of the flowery, flowy ones that used to hang in their grandmothers’ kitchens or of very stodgy drapery on display during an old episode of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.”
However, curtains have come a long way and finding a modern curtain is no longer a Herculean task. There are a plethora of stores that have sprung up over the past several years that specialize in a modern curtain, whether for the home or office.
What also makes curtain so modern these days, too, is their energy-efficient benefits. Why continue to pay through the nose for cooling bills in the summer and heating bills in the winter when a simple modern curtain can help you lower your energy bills year round?
And curtains aren’t just made out of the same material as Mary Poppins’ carpetbag anymore. They’re available in a fabulous selection of materials, colors, patterns and styles. Whether you want them to blend in with existing décor or style a new room around the curtains, the options these days will seem limitless. It’s also not out of the realm of (financial) possibilities to get curtains custom-made – there are very affordable options out there.
From tailored pleat, pinch pleat, inverted pleat, grommet drapery, ripple fold drapery, cubicle drapery, rod pocket drapery or goblet drapery – the selections are chic and sophisticated. They are definitely not your grandmother’s kitchen curtains.
