What to look for when choosing beaded curtains for your house
If you have decided to buy bead curtains for your house, whether you will be installing them in windows or in doors, you will want to make sure you choose the right ones.
After all, beaded curtains are just like traditional curtains. The wrong style or color will make your room look terrible.
The right size — The typical beaded curtain comes in many different sizes, both in length and width.
Be sure you measure your windows and your doors carefully before placing an order, as you want to be sure the beaded curtains you choose fit correctly. Remember, you do not want to have them too tight when they are hanging, nor do you want to have too many folds. If you do, it will make it that much easier for people outside to see through them.
The right length — Length is very important when it comes to beaded curtains.
Beads are very heavy so you do not want to order curtains that are too long as they will drag on the floor easily. Beads can also trip you up much more than can a traditional curtain, so a longer length could be more dangerous as well.
The right color — When choosing beaded curtains for any room in your home, the right color is absolutely key.
Just like traditional curtains, if you buy beaded curtains that are the wrong color, they will make your room look terrible and you will hate to look at them.
Be very sure you are ordering the correct color when you order them. Especially as they are quite heavy, so you do not want to have the expense of returning them if they are not correct.
Plain or patterned — Of course, beaded curtains do come in both plain and patterned beads.
Decide if a plain curtain will look the best in your home, or if a pattern is more likely to appeal.
Just be sure when you choose a patterned curtain that it does not make the curtains look tacky, as some of them do have a tendency to be a little overwhelming.
Can you see through them? — Decide on how much you want to be able to see through the curtains as well.
After all, if you are buying beaded curtains as they allow a lot of light into your room, you may not also want people to be able to see through them.
If you are not sure how much they are going to hide, contact the seller and ask.
Ordering online — While you can take a close look at beaded curtains at offline stores, it is true that the lowest prices you will usually find are on the Internet.
Especially if you order direct from the manufacturer, and even more so if that manufacturer is in India, Thailand or China.
Before ordering any beaded curtains online, do a price comparison using a shopping app. That will give you a good idea about which seller is offering the lowest price.
