Sometimes, with a few objects that we have in the house, we can improve our decoration, without spending money and with amazing results.
If there is a decorative and functional element essential to any home, it is the curtains. They allow us to preserve our privacy, by blocking the indiscreet glances of the outside or by separating the spaces inside our house. They also serve to regulate the entry of sunlight, protecting us from the sun at the central hours of the day and creating a more comfortable atmosphere.
At the same time, if they are thick, they act as a thermal insulator, insulating from both cold and heat. And, of course, they are a versatile decorative element. We can use simple curtains with eyelets, complex curtains with different layers, different patterns and textures, the options are endless.
In fact, curtains with large eyelets are becoming increasingly popular. They are easy to install, easy to wash, low maintenance and more economical than our grandmothers' old curtains, which had sheers, multiple layers and were very complicated to install. The problem with washer curtains is that they are not as elegant as traditional curtains.
A very effective tip for your curtains
The eyelet curtain system is very easy to install, but at the same time it is very simple and can give an old-fashioned or neglected decorative look. Also, with use, these curtains lose their shape and start to wrinkle when hung. Luckily, there are people like Curtain Hack, a YouTube user who shared the ultimate trick to make curtains with grommets look stylish and seamless.
First of all, you'll need to keep several cardboard toilet paper tubes. The very ones that we mindlessly throw away, without using them for any other purpose. Once you have a dozen, it's time to make some magic. As Tejada shows in the video, you place the first curtain washer on the rod to hang the curtain. Next, you insert a roll of cardboard, then another washer.
The idea is to place a cardboard toilet paper tube between each washer. This way you will see that the curtain takes shape and no longer has those annoying creases. It looks like the curtains have just been ironed, with a very decorative and elegant finish, giving the impression of more expensive and thicker curtains. The only drawback of this technique is that you will not be able to open the curtain comfortably. To solve this problem, simply place thinner cardboard tubes between the eyelets, although the result is not the same.
