Where do wooden curtain poles fit in interior design?
Wooden curtain poles can be a stylish, classic addition to any home. However, to really get the most out of them, you should consider using them in the most suitable settings – that means, knowing which interior design styles they best suit. As such, we’re going to look at the top interior design themes you can adopt to make the most of your new investment.
Nautical or beach-style rooms
Why not opt for a nautical style in your bedroom or living room? Your wooden curtain poles will fit right in alongside vintage wooden trunks, rocking chairs and shabby-chic table nests. To get the nautical look, invest in these pieces and go for a blue/white colour theme. Stripes are the traditional way to create this theme, though aren’t essential – the colours speak well for themselves. The key here is to keep the room light and airy, using bright whites and clean fabrics. If you really want to go all out, search vintage stores for an old ship wheel, lifesaver rings or pieces of gorgeous driftwood (which you could even find for free at the beach!). Top it off with a beautiful white lampshade and a dark navy throw.
Country cottage feel
If you’ve got a beautiful country home, or simply want to make your city home feel cosier, then opt for a country cottage feel in your kitchen or living area. This style encompasses warm pastel colours, soft fabrics and beautiful pine furnishings. It’s all about making an inviting atmosphere, so once your curtain poles are up, look for comfy couches/chairs and a clean, wooden dining table. Lots of cushions are essentials, as is a roaring fireplace (if you have one, that is!). Pop some gorgeous petunias into a vintage flower pot, find a vintage bookcase and spread some wooden logs around the fireplace, if appropriate. Your look should be complete!
Vintage, shabby chic theme
This look has been all the rage over the past few years, with people even painting their furniture then going at it with a bit of sandpaper to give it a vintage feel! It’s all about combining the old with the new, in the right way. So, where you might opt for a new couch, you could source some vintage cushion covers or antique brass feet for the sofa. Worn yet beautiful photo frames will add style to the walls, as will traditional tea pots and dainty cups. Patchwork fabrics work well with this theme too, as do soft yet bright pinks, purples and cream shades. With the addition of your simple, traditional wooden curtain poles, your room will look fabulous in no time at all.
So, these are just a few of the many ways in which you can best utilise wooden curtain poles in your home. The truth is, they can add a nice touch to most decor themes – but only if you make the investment in the first place! So don’t delay – look into procuring some wooden curtain poles for your home and let your imagination be your guide.
