If you want to add some class to any room in your home, consider hanging silk drapes in there. They come in many different colors so you should be able to find what will accent the rest of the décor you have in place.
Some people hang silk drapes in the spring and summer months when it is warmer. They replace them with something heavier for the fall and the winter.
Other people keep their silk drapes in place all year long.
Silk drapes can wrinkle easy though so you need to be prepared for it. Generally you can get them wrinkles out with a steam iron or even by placing a humidifier in the room for a couple of hours.
If the air is dry your silk drapes may not hang as they should due to static. You can also turn on a humidifier to help with this as well.
Be careful not to get anything on them as they can easily stain.
Silk drapes are very light so you don’t need to worry about intense hardware in place to hang them up. A couple of standard curtain rods in place should do the trick.
Many retailers also sell decorative curtain rods so you can make your silk drapes look classier than ever. It all depends on the overall image you want a particular room in your home to have.
You will likely find silk drapes to be more expensive than many other types of materials though. Still, you don’t want to pass up the chance to have a well decorated home.
Look for sales on silk drapes and take advantage of them. You should have the measurements for the windows in your home in your purse or wallet. This way you will know if they will work when you do see them on sale.
Most silk drapes out there are very well made so you won’t have to worry about them wearing out. In fact, they should last until you decide you want to change them by adding something else.
Of course many individuals simply decide they don’t ever want to get rid of their silk drapes. If they are going to replace them it will be with another set.
