With the right fabrics, colors and patterns, you can transform your living room or bedroom in less than an hour, making it fit for a king or queen in these Royal Curtain designs.

Most of us have probably been in the same situation at some point. You have an ordinary home with ordinary curtains and ordinary windows, but you want to liven up your place with something that will make it fit for royalty. Luckily, there are plenty of design tricks you can use to turn your regular house into one fit for a king or queen! These five tricks will get you started on the way to turning your home into a royal palace… or at least, to making it better than before!


1. The Right Fabric - Glossy fabric, Velvet or silk

When starting out with designing your own curtains, the first thing you need to consider is the fabric. The right fabric will make your home fit for royalty and give it that extra touch of class. Consider using heavy fabrics such as velvet, silk, and glossy. These fabrics are costly but they’ll last for years and give your space an air of luxury. If you’re on a budget, then think about using materials such as cotton or polyester blends.
You can use velvet for curtains and window treatments because the fabric feels very luxurious. Silk fabric feels very soft and luxurious too, and will also add a sense of opulence to your home. Regardless of what fabric you choose, make sure that it coordinates with the décor of the room.

2. Floral pattern of Victoria age

If you’re looking to make your living room feel like a luxurious sanctuary, then be sure to try these design tricks. These ideas are all about making your home fit for royalty by adding finishing touches that will give it the appearance of elegance and grandeur. First off, find the right pattern—something visually impactful that’s not too busy so as to distract from other important design elements. With most people opting for something geometric or floral because they provide movement without being overbearing, one also has plenty of options when it comes time to choose just how they want their space to appear; after all, there are many ways one can add said pattern depending on what specifically they desire for their space.

3. Embroidery Sheer


A simple way to give your space that royal look is with embroidered sheer curtains. Embroidery will make the space feel more regal and luxurious, while the sheer curtains will make it look delicate and light. The addition of embroidery can also help balance out patterns in the room, such as stripes or polka dots.

4. Use the Right Hardware

You can take ordinary curtains and make them fit for royalty by adding the right hardware. The hardware that you choose will depend on the type of window, whether you want curtains that are mounted from the side or ceiling. 
You might be thinking how curtain rod makes a difference? Well curtain rods play an unavoidable role in giving the final touch to your curtain; you might think that the rod will be mostly covered but the curtain rods never hide!. There are different types of rods available – the brass, the wood one, the copper color and a few more. Imagine how your curtains would look when paired with the perfect rods and make a decision.
Finials – the final touches to the window treatments – are essential. Finials always finish off a look and make it complete, just like wrapping up a perfect present! If you want your windows dressed in an elegant but luxurious fashion, opt for the most opulent finials available.

5. Curtain Tie-back

There will be times when you wouldn’t want your curtains to be open – say, for instance, at night time, or during the day if you don’t want light coming in through windows and ruining your view of whatever is outside. For these situations, there are specific products called ‘tie backs’ which can close up those curtains without completely blocking out the sun from shining through. There are many different types of tie backs available for purchase; some styles work better than others depending on what kind of fabric you’re using for your curtain panels.
