The use of beaded curtains dates back hundreds of years ago and was actually a big part of Asian history. At present, these intricate pieces are back to add impression in every interior design; stylish and innovative than ever. Beaded curtains are made from beads individually affixed to the cord. This adds safety so that when a part of it is trimmed, the rest of the beads will not slip off. Materials used for these curtains are bamboo, wood, plastic, acrylic, glass, seeds, faux metals, shells, mirrors and even gemstones. These curtains also offer a great reflection of style. These statement pieces can spruce up a boring interior. Curtains that are beaded with crystals and gemstones sift through the light that enters the room and give dramatic effects. They also come in different sizes, shapes, cuts, themes and designs.
Beaded curtains are very cool in certain situations. They seem to be used most by college students in their dorm rooms and those with an eclectic sense of style, especially those looking for a more retro decor. When hanging them you only need a few tools. A hammer and some nails or screws will suffice. It’s not often that a beaded door curtain will use a rod. Most of the time, they hang by the strings that tie them together. This makes them somewhat fragile to handle, but it also makes them very easy to repair.
