There are a lot of reasons why curtains as window coverings are so popular. For one thing, you have your choice of the fabric, design, and colour of your curtains. For another, curtains provide the best shade for the amount of natural light that enters into a room. The ideal places to hang curtains would be in your living room and bedroom. Linen is an ideal material if you are looking for a breezy look. You can also go for cotton or lace. Velvet, although one of the heavier types of material, lends an air of luxury to a room. Whatever material you go for, curtains are not challenging to make and are a perfect DIY project for beginners that require mostly straight sewing.
