Window Dressings Made Easy – Tab Top Curtains

Tab top curtains are a good choice for your room if you are looking to create a simple, informal feel. The curtains are hung by means of tabs spaced evenly along the top of the curtains, through which the a curtain pole is threaded.

You can use tab top curtains in many different setting and fabrics depending on what function you want your curtain to fulfil. The beauty of tab top curtains is that they can be made from just about any kind of fabric, from the lightest, sheerest voile to the heaviest, richest velvet.

You may want to create a romantic, feminine look in your bedroom in which case a delicate voile hung in the window recess will look pretty, whilst providing privacy. You can also hang curtains outside the recess, if you want to.

Alternatively, you might want thicker curtains to give a warmer, cosier feel to your room. Again, tab tops are an option. One thing to bear in mind, however, with tab top curtains is that they lie flatter across the window than other types of curtains and give a less full appearance. To achieve the best look when the curtains are drawn it is important that you have a 1.5 to 2 times the amount of fabric to the width of the window to gather in them for a stylish look.
