A variety of fabrics are used to create a photo curtain: oxford, kiplite, wet silk, satin, blackout, gabardine. The choice is great, for example, for the bedroom it is better to use blackout, which practically does not let in sunlight, and for the nursery – gabardine or satin-like satin.
Making photocurtains on your own is problematic – you need special equipment that allows you to transfer the photo to the fabric and secure it securely. Now such works are usually carried out either by specialized companies that produce ready-made photo curtains, or by advertising agencies offering to transfer your chosen picture to a pillow, T-shirt, cup, piece of fabric.
The choice of drawing, of course, should be based on the functional purpose of the room. For the kitchen, you can choose juicy fruits, vegetables, coffee beans – anything that makes you hungry. Your favorite cartoon characters will look perfect in the nursery.
Photocurtains imitate real landscapes and surfaces so well that they often completely mask windows, turning them into an arched passage to the beach, for example. A good way to hide an unattractive view from the window.
So that the picture on the curtains is not too bright, defiant, you can pick up black and white classic options that will look harmonious in any interior style. For the living room as a whole, landscapes and flower arrangements are better suited.
The drawing on the photocurtain should correspond to the entire style of the room. If the interior is classic, then ultra-modern urban photography will not work. Remember that the photo curtain will become a very noticeable element of the decor, so it should not get out of the general design style..
It is recommended to wash photo curtains in the “delicate” or “hand wash” mode, at a temperature not exceeding 30 degrees. It is better to use liquid detergents, because the powder remaining on the curtains when exposed to sunlight can worsen the quality of the pattern.
Smooth the photocurtains only from the seamy side, not according to the pattern!In this case, the temperature on the iron should be set to no more than 110 degrees. It is advisable to use the steaming mode to keep your curtain in shape.
Photocurtains with a 3D effect give a good effect of increasing the area of the room. They visually lengthen the room, a correctly chosen drawing can make the room brighter. In this case, the effect is the same as with 3D photo wallpaper..
An example of how a correctly selected drawing can fit into the interior. The wood finish of the room and the general color scheme demanded the same continuation. “Morning in a Pine Forest” by Ivan Shishkin and Konstantin Savitsky was perfect. The picture was simply transferred to the fabric by photo printing.
