When it comes time to spruce up a room, curtains are probably one of the last things anyone thinks about. There is so much more to consider — a new rug, an accent chair, a statement mirror — but in the end curtains can have the biggest impact.
Not only do they filter light and provide privacy, they also make a space feel finished and textured. You can pair them with a shade and use for purely decorative purposes, or let them stand alone. And since there are so many ready-made varieties on the market, you don't need to break the bank getting custom drapery made from expensive fabric. Yep, there are loads of affordable options that come in multiple widths and lengths, letting you zero in on exactly what you need. Plus, the choices of fabric are literally endless.
We at Home & Design love the way curtains dress up a room and add a dose of drama, so we rounded up 10 of our favorites in a wide range of fabrics — ikat, gauze, velvet, textured weave, and pompom-adorned — all in price points that are within reach. Any of these options will take your space up a notch and at the same time be friendly on your wallet.
