Of all the curtains and blinds that we stock here at QuickFit, one particular panel style has won the heart of DIY home designers across the face of Australia. That curtain panel style is none other than our 100% pure linen curtains.
With their organic weave, muted colours, and delicate presence, our 100% pure linen curtains are designed to add a natural feel to your home’s interior spaces. Being produced using only close-woven 100% pure linen flax fibres, these curtains are also highly breathable and offer some thermal and minor organic solar blockout capabilities.
Although pure linen curtains are known for their versatility, they do tend to exist in a space between blockout curtains and sheer panels. Thanks to their close yet still translucent weave, pure linen curtains are not quite sheer, nor are they overly flowy. So how exactly do you style these curtains?
Today we’ll be outlining 4 different ways that you can style your pure linen curtains with ease. Read on to discover all our top tips for making the most out of your brand new 100% pure linen curtain panels.
1. Pair with organic decor and natural elements
Our entire range of 100% pure linen curtains is available in a range of neutral, muted or earthy colours that are effectively designed to work well with a wide range of interior design styles and colour palettes. Even though you can style these curtains with a wide range of colours, a surefire method for ensuring that your pure linen curtains look and feel right at home is simply by pairing them with other organic decor and natural elements.
Our pure linen curtains can be paired with pure linen throws and cushions, as well as other organic furnishings and decor items like wicker furniture or macrame wall and planter hangings. Pairing your linen curtains with some indoor greenery is also guaranteed to inspire a little harmony in your interior spaces.
2. Hang directly onto rods for a softer industrialist feel
Although all of our pure linen curtains can be fitted with curtain tracks, this isn’t a necessary addition for all. In fact, DIY home designers do have the option to hang their pure linen curtains directly onto their curtain rods because of the linen multiband header design that these particular curtain panels are fitted with.
As you may imagine, your pure linen curtain panels will appear to hang differently depending on which method you choose. Hanging them using curtain tracks can result in your curtain panels taking on a more organic ‘pinch pleat’ hang, whereas hanging the panels directly onto your curtain rod by using the folds of the multiband header, will take on an eyelet-style hang, which will see your curtain panel appear as being more evenly distributed and less pleated in appearance.
If you’re less pleats and more of a textured screen-like appearance for your window coverings, then hanging your pure linen curtains without the use of curtain tracks may be the way to go. Fans of the contemporary industrialist interior design style may also find that this screen-like or ‘invisible eyelet’ appearance works very well with this particular interior design style.
3. Hang extra long linen curtains for a cascading effect
Of course, if you’re a fan of flowy curtains and would prefer to use curtain tracks over hanging your 100% pure linen curtain panel directly onto your curtain rod, then we may have another styling suggestion just for you. You’ll be happy to hear that all of our 100% pure linen curtains are available in an extra long curtain style, or measuring out at a whopping 250 cm in length.
The extra long curtain style is perfectly suited for larger floor-to-ceiling windows, or multi-storey windows. Opting for a longer drape for your pure linen curtains may also bring a more ‘sheer-like’ quality to your translucent linen curtain panels. Alongside this, opting for an extra long pure linen curtain will provide you with the ability to create a cascading effect with your window coverings that you may not have been able to achieve with fitted linen curtains.
Keep in mind, however, that the added weight of extra long curtain panels may limit the amount of movement that you get with your linen curtains. If you’re after a more flowy effect, we recommend hanging fitted linen curtain panels with no additional window coverings for maximum flowiness.
4. Layer with a set of sheer curtains for gentle depth
Last but not least, although our pure linen curtain panels aren’t particularly sheer themselves, they do look stunning when layered on top of a set of our sheer curtains. Layering your translucent pure linen curtains with some more transparent sheer curtains can help add some gentle depth to your interiors that may in turn, play a major role in cultivating a sense of cohesion in your home’s finalised design scheme.
Layering your pure linen curtains with some sheer curtains is also a great way of helping your home stay naturally warm in winter without having to sacrifice on any of your home’s natural light availability. Although we are fans of thermal blockout curtains here at QuickFit, we can agree that these curtain panels can block out much-needed natural light in the darker winter months alongside keeping your home well-insulated. In contrast to this, pairing your pure linen curtains with sheers can provide a similar level of thermal insulation for your home without blocking out too much natural light.
In essence, if you’ve ever been keen to experiment with the subtle art of layering in interior design, then investing in some 100% pure linen curtains is absolutely one of the best ways that you can venture into this new area of study and create a design for your window coverings that looks immaculate from season to season.
Now that you’ve heard all of our winning suggestions for styling your 100% pure linen curtain panels with ease, all that’s left to do is decide just how to organise the rest of your home’s interior design schemes around these versatile window coverings.
