Austrian curtains in the interior
Austrian blinds may look like flatThe canvas, which is slightly collected at the bottom - a similar curtain is ideal for interiors of the Art Nouveau style. Also, the Austrian curtain can be made in the form of lush drapery with various frills and flounces - such a curtain will perfectly match the interior in the style of classicism or baroque.
Austrian curtains have their own distinctiveSide. Austrian blinds, being a symbiosis of French and Roman curtains, are made of a fabric that does not crumple, and, as a rule, are separate sections assembled on the lower edge by luxuriant assemblies or flounces. Often curtains are complemented with decorative fringe, brushes, playful ruffles, cords or a contrast edging.
The principle of operation of such curtains is quite simple. To raise and lower the curtains there is a special lifting mechanism - these are the cords, the special rings fixed on the cornice (the curtains are adjusted with the help of these shoelaces). Such cords perform not only functional loading, but also decorative, because with the help of these shoelaces, the drape and the edge of the curtain are formed. In addition, you can create a splendor of the curtains high, for this the upper edge of the curtain is draped with a special drapery, or creases are created manually.
From the foregoing it becomes clear thatAustrian curtains are curtains that have adopted one feature from Roman curtains, namely the mechanism of lifting curtains. But between them there is one difference - Austrian curtains do not have horizontal bars, so they easily draped. Austrian curtains can only be lifted up, they can not be moved apart. In the interior, such curtains can be used as an independent accessory for windows, but in some cases the Austrian curtains along the edges are complemented by curtains or lambrequins of a contrasting shade.
Choose the right fabric
What is the material of the Austrian curtains? The fabric for sewing such curtains is either semi-transparent or opaque. In this case, it depends on what role the curtains will play - the role of the curtains or they will fully close the window from the extra looks. It is best, of course, to choose fabrics that are easily draped, although they come up with rough fabrics. When choosing rough fabrics, it should be taken into account that below the curtains will turn out to be broken and rough. With such curtains you can draw a working room, a drawing room. If Austrian curtains decorate a nursery or a bedroom, then it is best to choose soft and light fabrics for sewing. Takitietani easily draped, giving the interior elegance and lightness. But to make the curtains three-dimensional and magnificent, the fabric should be compressed more, and no matter what fabric is used.
In the kitchen, for example, it is not very appropriate toLook a bit too curvy curtains, it is enough to make only a couple of unobtrusive folds at the bottom. In the living room, on the contrary, the three-dimensional curtain with lush and beautiful festoons will look beautiful.
For sewing Austrian curtains you should chooseSingle-tonnets or fabrics with a horizontal fine pattern. Fabrics with a large pattern for the Austrian curtains are not suitable, since there is a risk that the pattern is simply lost in the folds. As for color preferences, for sewing similar curtains are pastel shades, for example, milky, light pink, bluish, beige or pistachio.
We sew Austrian blinds independently
The tailoring of Austrian curtains will cope with anyone whoIs close to the needle and thread. Before embarking on tailoring, we determine how the size of the canvas. In this issue, everything is individual, because much depends on what interior of the room will decorate the curtain. If it is planned to sew a sewing machine for the living room, the length of the cornice is multiplied by two. Hence, a double width is typed. In the kitchen, excessive fluffiness is not needed, so for sewing curtains the width of the fabric should be taken, slightly larger than the width of the cornice. The length of the bar in each individual case is determined on the spot.
Now the fabric should be evaporated, then itWashing does not sit down. Below the bottom of the canvas with both sides make holes, the size of which should correspond to the diameter of the cords that are threaded into these holes.
Further we proceed to the calculations: It is necessary to calculate the number of festons. When calculating it is necessary to take into account that the width of the festons varies from 30 to 60 cm. We proceed to the formation of vertical kulisks, in which we pass the cords, the lower edge of which is left free, and the upper one is fixed. The rings are sewn along the height of each cusp - we retreat from the lower edge 3 cm and sew the first ring , Then retreat 15-20 cm and sew up the second ring, so to the end of the canvas. In the upper part we fold the canvas, creating a pocket, in which we insert a wooden bar. In the additional rings, a cord is passed through the kulisks and fastened to the bar. Further, all the cords are removed from the side ring, with the help of which the ready-made curtains are regulated.
The main characteristics of Austrian curtains - it is unobtrusive and elegant. Austrian curtains have another advantage - they can decorate both large rooms and small rooms.
