Gingham Curtains – The Country Look

Decorating with curtains is largely a matter of taste but sometimes the curtains can almost choose themselves. If you have already made the decision that your home is going to have a rustic, country or farmhouse flavor there is one word that nearly always comes straight to mind – gingham.

Gingham fabric has been around a long time. Traditionally, it was identified by the red and white checked pattern of the cotton fabric from which is was made. Today, gingham is available in a broad range of colors and is used widely for curtains, linens, decorative design for crockery and even shoes. No picnic was complete without a red and white gingham tablecloth and napkins. Gingham curtains create an instant country look in provincial or "old farmhouse" styles. Gingham curtains are as whimsical as they are colorful. The pattern can be arranged in small or larger sizes on fabric. Mostly, the smaller checked pattern is preferred.

Gingham CurtainsCreating a Gingham Window Treatment

Gingham curtains look good in any season of the year in just about any room in the house, including the living room. Choose bright gingham curtains for the kitchen and a more subdued gingham color for bedrooms. In modern or country decor for the living room, select long gingham curtain panels to bring out the overall color theme. Another appealing window treatment is to choose window shades in a solid color that is the predominant color of the gingham curtains.

When you go looking for a set of these kinds of curtains you will realize that they are made in a rough and durable cotton fabric that has been woven with fine to medium sized threads. Although the threads are on the fine side, the texture is very similar to yarn which gives it a tendency to feel a little stiff.

Get Busy, Get Gingham

Gingham is considered a "busy" pattern. This means that the remaining decor should be understated so that your gingham curtains receive the full thrust of attention. It isn't advisable to use gingham curtains on windows in a room with patterned wall paper unless the wallpaper is designed to withstand the pressure of the happy gingham colors of your curtains.
Gingham curtains make a bold statement and yet, they have a very quaint, very comfortable appeal. Try gingham curtains in pale yellow, delicate pink or baby blue. For bathroom curtains, this is a good choice.

Err on the side of caution when installing these curtains and plan around the gingham design. Add touches of other solid colors generously to give the room balance and eye appeal. Choose the traditional red and white gingham checked curtains, add splashes of red, lots of background white and dollups of dark green to accessorize and wake up a room.
