Pelmets are in vogue and really change the whole appeal of the curtain and give the room and window a distinctive look. There are various pelmet designs that you can pick as curtain pelmets for window treatments. But if we look at the pelmet designs broadly then it can be categorized into stiff pelmet and pelmet valance. The stiff pelmet is made from the pelmet board on which the fabric is pasted so there is no frills or pleats here. But in case of valance pelmets the fabric has the pleats that flows downwards. Although there are now rollers and blinds but both the styles of pelmets are in and used by many.
While you may fall in love with the dreamiest window treatment in a home decor magazine, think of your own home’s views and sun exposure before choosing window treatments. Much of your home’s heat gain and loss is through the windows. If your home receives heavy sun exposure, have the appropriate treatments to filter out the light. While you may love valances, remember they only adorn the top of your windows, and your home may need sheers, or light fabric shades to assist with keeping out sunlight. Know your home so that you won’t regret your decision later!
Like the rest of the building or renovation project you need to start with a rough idea about how much money you can set aside for your window treatments budget. Each individual will have a different idea about what they would want to spend. If you can set a limit to start with then you will have less chance of going over that once you start shopping. Then it is a matter of researching and talking to your local window treatment expert to see if you can achieve the look you are after within the budget you have decided upon.
Curtain pelmet color can be similar to the color of other textile furnishings like bed covers, cushions, bed sheets etc. The coordinating colors look really good if used properly. More balance should be provided by combining dark and light colors. Even the dark color pelmet can be used to lower the roof if your room has high roof. Wooden pelmet designs are made from wood and the length is custom made. The color choice is also based on the selection of the customer. All types of contemporary and traditional wooden pelmet designs can be checked that look very elegant. These have the carving of wood so there is no need of fabric to decorate it further.
