The Different Types of Lodge Curtains

Lodge curtains help complete the picture when creating a rustic look in a room or cabin. There are so many options available at that you just might choose to expand your theme from one room to the entire house. Lodge curtains include more patterns and styles than you might expect so you can vary the theme slightly from room to room while still maintaining a cohesive style. For instance you could you pair cabin valances in a printed fabric, pine cones, bears, or moose, with a plain fabric curtain in a coordinating color. This window treatment brings the lodge or cabin feel into the room with overwhelming a small room or going overboard on the wilderness theme if you are just looking for a touch of nature in the room. 

Another understated option is to hang cabin valances in a natural or a subtle wilderness print over blinds or basic curtains. offers faux leather valances and some with a barbed wire motif and a fringe. If you prefer to go all out with the cabin or wilderness theme, opt for lodge curtains with a full print. From ducks to fish, elks to deer, there are fabrics that will fit into virtually any cabin decor or hunter's favorite theme. You can pair patterned lodge curtains with matching cabin valances or choose to coordinate with a plain valance. The type of fabric you choose makes as much of a difference as the pattern of the fabric. Coarse and thick fabrics will obviously block a lot of natural light and help to keep heat or cool air in. 

However, you may wish to allow more natural light in or hope for an unobstructed breeze with lighter, flimsier fabric curtains. Whichever type of curtains and valances you choose, make sure you measure properly from either the inside or outside of the window frame to ensure a proper fit. Once you have installed curtain rods, test fabric swatches in both morning and evening, natural and artificial light, to see how the colors and patterns blend with existing paint and furniture colors.
