Curtain Ideas for the Kitchen
If you do not know what curtains to choose, then you can go the easy way. Adhere to the rule: less is better. Avoid curtains with abundant decor, bright pattern, discard rich colors. Almost always will be appropriate light single-color curtains, which will create an effect of ease in the room.
If this seems too simple for you, then use companion tissue. You can combine the material with different texture and density, but with similar shades.
The most popular models of curtains for the kitchen:

In order to sew a short curtain in the kitchen, you will need:
- linen cloth, your chosen colors;
- sewing machine;
We cut out the canvas of the appropriate size, taking measurements from the kitchen window.
It will be necessary to leave allowances for bending. We bend, smooth and edge the edges. You can do this with pins, as shown in the picture.
We process the cuts with a double bend thread in tone.
Bend about a third of the finished fabric, retreat a couple of centimeters from the edge and spend again.
It is necessary to make a hole in which the cornice will go, so we retreat from the first seam a few centimeters and make one more line.
The size of the hole will depend on the diameter of your eaves.
We smooth the curtain and put it on the cornice. Please note that this curtain is designed for cornices without hooks, which is very convenient.

In order to make a Roman blind, you will need:
- cloth for curtains;
- old blinds;
We measure the opening of the window to find out what size a piece of fabric is needed. We cut out the future curtain, not forgetting to leave allowances for the processing of slices.
The side cuts will need to be processed with a double fold, the lower cut is not processed, it will play the role of a pocket in which we place the weight bar.
During the processing of the slices, do not forget about the lining. It will need to be seized by sewing the upper cut and making the bottom pocket.
Getting started with the slats. If you have old blinds, then you can fully use them. To do this, measure the distance between the slats that you want to get on the finished Roman blind. Usually it is 20-30 cm. Disassemble the blinds by removing the excess strips, as shown in the picture.
Glue the formed "skeleton" from the blinds to the lining.
For this you can use quick-drying glue that does not leave stains.
When you securely fasten the strips, you can fix the weighting agent.
Well smear it with glue, wrap with a cloth and fix it.
Your Roman curtain is ready. Everything is done quickly and simply, and the result can not but rejoice.
