Curtains play a crucial role in the interior design of the house, and so we should pay attention to curtains accessories. Curtain tiebacks are very important as they can add charm and elegance to your curtains in addition to opening draperies for the purpose of letting light into the room; they tie the curtains back in the middle towards the top or towards the bottom according to the length of the tieback.
There is a stereotype for tiebacks, which is as yellowish colored ropes with colored tassels on the end, however there are many options for each drapery design. The modern sleek look for tiebacks incorporates chains that are made from various metals such as gold, silver, or chrome.
Tiebacks and the curtains can be made up of the same fabric with beads and embroidery that make it more beautiful and creative, especially with color combinations. The wooden tiebacks with antique bronze and gold finishes or beaded tiebacks can make your curtain look magnificent even if it is dull. You can find also rope tiebacks which come in different colors and sizes, and they consist of thick cords with looped ends and sometimes with diamond crystals.
A hook style curtain tie backs suit heavy drapery or wide curtains, on the contrary of the post style which is used for light weight curtains or small panels. Actually, ornamental tiebacks cost a lot and you can save money as well as choose your own design by making them yourself using a plaster mold, which you can find in the craft store or in internet.
Not only can you use these molds in making tiebacks but also drawer/door knobs, wall hangings, candle holders or any decorative element. One last tip is to make sure that the hooks you buy to attach the tiebacks to are sufficiently large enough, so that they are not continually coming off the hooks, which is so frustrating.
