There are times that we’ve splurged on drapery/curtains – because BELIEVE me it can be a splurge, but often worth it if you can hang with the initial investment – which can be hard to swallow. But more often it’s not in the budget, especially for blog makeovers or any of our e-design clients. Luckily there are a lot of really, really great options out there that are readymade and very affordable. For the project above we did Ikea, and oh hey, for the project below, we chose Ikea, too.
Uh. Also for this project, below, we did Ikea, too. Listen they have the longest simple white drapes that can be hemmed (even with hemming tape) to be shortened to any size so they can feel custom even though they aren’t.
Now this one, below, was custom and as you can see it is pretty darn beautiful. I think for this clients entire house, probably 10 sets of curtains with lining, rods, rings, 2 roman shades and including installation it was $15k. Steep, I know.
But forget that price if it’s not in your budget because we have a roundup for you that hopefully is. We have spoken about this before, last year, but figured it was time for an update. Before you buy make sure you refer to our How Not To Hang Your Curtains post. Now, as usual, I haven’t vetted any of these in person, so I have no idea what the quality is like. When in doubt go for cotton or linen as anything with shine can look cheap. Furthermore, most of these are not sold in single panels so make sure you are ordering enough. Without further ado, our favorite 40 curtains under $50 and 48 from $50 – $100.
