Japanese curtains Curtains play a big role in interior design.Judge for yourself - the walls occupy a large part of the room, and the windows assigned the remaining space.Curtains closed as act as another wall, the only difference is that this wall you can manage.Japanese curtains can be opened and closed manually or by means of mechanics.In the first case, the control process is identical to the treatment of vertical blinds - you need to pull the string to move the fabric aside.

All models Japanese curtains are cornices, and when opened one panel goes for the other.Decreasing or increasing the number of ledges you can manually simulate the original design of curtains for your apartment.The uniqueness of these moldings is that they allow you to change the design of the same curtains, introducing diversity in the interior.

Zoning curtains

unusual structure and appearance of Japanese curtains pushed designers to the original decision - to use them not only for windows but also as partitions.If you look at home in traditional Japanese style, you will see there are no thick walls, and the whole interior is maximally simplified.The Japanese do not have an abundance of shelves with souvenirs, huge wardrobes and cupboards with eternal tea set "guest."According to the traditional view, all that clutter your apartment, just clutter and your life.Accordingly, the easier and easier it will be the situation, the freer you will feel.This little excursion into the psychology of Japanese design is needed to understand why instead of walls in homes use light open walls, and why Japanese curtains are ideal for this role.


direct Light curtain can easily divide the room into two functional areas, or, conversely, combine into one.This solution is ideal for studios, where combined living room with a bedroom.Also, Japanese curtains as walls can be used in the design of the room for two teenage children, each of which is vital to have a private space.

Japanese curtains can be replaced by a wide door openings.They perfectly fit into any modern interior, or "refresh" the former environment, making it an exotic touch.Zoning space in this way can be very interesting and loses possession.For example, if on the one hand the canvas will be painted in a color corresponding to this side of the room, and the shade on the other hand will complement the interior color palette of the second half.In general, support for color should be chosen very carefully, and before that a good idea to inquire about the psychological context and the impact of each of the colors.For example, the bedroom is better to draw in neutral colors without disturbing psyche.In the children's room curtains can be bright colors, but if they are close to the sleeping area, it is still recommended to pick up something quieter, otherwise the child will be capricious.


If you divide the room into two unequal parts, one of which is substantially smaller than the other, for example, is an office with a desk and bookcase, choose light-colored fabric.In this case, a smaller part will not seem too tight.Regarding transparency webs, they may be translucent and opaque.First give the room lightness, but the latter clearly followed its mission - to replace the wall.
