Ideas for country cottage curtains include garden-themed lined rod pocket curtains that hang the length of the window, and floral cafe curtains that are positioned toward the middle of the window vertically and hang to the bottom of the frame. Country cottage curtains can also take the shape of plantation shutters, which create a sleek, yet warm look for kitchens, living rooms or dining rooms.
Roman shades are a popular choice for country cottages to add simplicity to the decor. Popular country cottage curtain ideas for bedrooms involve creating a canopy shape with curtains by hanging two long swaths of fabric from a bed crown. Off-white sheer curtains are also a popular choice for bedrooms, bathrooms and dining rooms in country cottages.
Acquire old-fashioned charm in a country cottage with neutral tone drapes over white or off-white sheer curtains. The darker drapes can be tied back to reveal just the sheer curtains or pushed to the side, hanging vertically. Brighten up a country cottage room with a floral valance formed with Styrofoam cornices to create a square look with long, floral drapes outlining the sides of the window. The longer drapes outline the window while the valances allow light to shine into the room.
