Curtains Are For More Than Just Windows

When we think of curtains, we think of the gorgeous fabric that frames our windows and creates a focal point in a room. Curtains can be so much more than this, used unconventionally they can give a room a unique look.

Yorkshire Fabric Shop Curtains Are For More Than Just Windows

Bed canopy 

Whether it is for the little prince, or princess, in your life or you want to give your own bedroom a romantic touch, a bed canopy can transform your room. Use playful patterns like our Playtime printed cotton fabric collection, to let your child’s imagination run wild or use a sheer fabric to bring a touch of elegance. A bed canopy can be for more than just style, depending on the fabric that you choose it can help to filter the light coming into the room, so you don’t get disturbed by sunlight.

Cabinet curtains

OK, so technically you’re still using curtains as, well, curtains but with a slightly different look. This is quite a traditional style and is associated with gingham fabrics, like our Voyage of Gingham fabric, used in an English country kitchen, but it is making a comeback with a modern twist. Try using large botanical prints like our Multi coloured oval leaf design fabric, or pastel tones to complement your kitchen design.

Room dividers

If you are not able to give your children a room to themselves, a divider can help to give them their own space and privacy. It is also a great solution for a living area, especially if your layout is open plan. A fabric divider can separate the dining room and living room, great for hosting dinner parties! A bold pattern like our Zenith Collection really makes a statement.

Door curtains 

Door curtains are typically used to exclude draughts so a thick textured fabric like our Art of fabrics plain soft chenille fabric, is a great choice. You should always choose to get door curtains lined; this will add an extra level of insulation. A door curtain is a stylish way to a mask a door that opens directly into a room or can add the finishing touch to a porch or entrance hall.
