A Beginners Guide to Curtain Tassels, Trims, Pelmets & Tiebacks

Robert Anderson from Curtain Clean Hamilton

The colours, patterns and style are an essential part of trying a room together and creating a particular mood. However, there’s more to a perfect curtain than just the fabric and cut. As interior design trends move away from clean, minimalistic Scandinavian styles - no curtain is complete without a tassel, trims, pelmet or tieback. In 2021, it’s all about more glamorous styles like Modern Luxe and Modern Classic. Feeling confused? Don’t worry, we’ve put together a beginner’s guide on all these finishing touches so you can make the right choice for your curtain style. Read on to find out more!

Tassels
Tassels are an elegant cluster of strings or cords that are clumped together at one end and hang free at the other. Suitable for curtains rather than blinds, these finishing features are actually a practical decoration. The tassel’s shape acts as a weight at the bottom of the cord which helps keep the curtains pulled back without the need for bulky knots. Tassel’s come in a variety of colours and styles to suit any decor. However, they are on the flashier end of curtain finishings, so they’d best suit a living room or bedroom.

Trims
So, you’ve selected a style of curtain that sounds your decor - now it’s time to choose a trim. Trims refers to the decorative elements that add a touch of ornateness to your curtains, and the sky’s the limit when it comes to style, pattern, colour and embellishments. Types of trim include:

Valances
You’ve heard of valances on beds, but when it comes to curtains and blinds a valance refers to the fabric or panel added above a window. Typically, valances are used to hide a rod or track and add a touch of chic to any room. The style options are endless - you can add embellishments like beads or pom-poms. However, avoid adding anything to the sides of your roller blinds, though, as this can become entangled in the roller blind mechanism at the top and prevent them from rolling and unrolling properly.

Fringes

Take a close look at the strings that hang from the bottom of a curtain tie back or are on the edge of a blanket - that’s a fringe. They’re typically attached to the bottom of curtains, under pelmet or on valances.

Different Curtains, Different Benefits

This leads to confusion and with confusion starts the round of discussions, advice and suggestions. Though you may like some of them. The suggestion will always include linen curtains, linen roman blinds, net curtains, sheer curtains, thermal curtains, blackout blinds and similar sorts. Most of them are useless, some come close to what you want and out of blue you may find a suggestion that you will find interesting. Even then the best idea that you find does not tick all the boxes. Therefore, we need a practical approach to select the right curtain design.

All curtain types come with their own set of benefits and limitations. No one window treatment option can suffice all the requirements. You will need a set of permutation and combinations and an eye for custom combinations to make your window treatment stand out and give a professional look. All the fabrics, be it linen, velvet, net, thermal or blackout, have their own advantages. One is economical in one way another one proves to be economical the other way. One lets the light in and the other turns a room into a sound and light proof. In this writeup we are going to talk about different curtains and their different benefits.

Linen Curtains

One of the most-simple yet exclusive look can be achieved by using Linen Curtains, drapes and blinds. Not only these are made of natural flax seeds, they come cheap and are available in multiple colours. They help illuminate the rooms with natural light as linen is a low-density fabric. One of the main advantages of using linen fabric is being able to use it in multiple styles such as linen roman blinds, simple drapes hanging over the wall or a simple free flowing curtain design.
