Hanging log cabin curtains and cabin valances in your lodge or home is one of the best things you can do in cabin décor. These can add a dramatic effect or a subtle elegance to any room. And hanging these types of curtains and valances isn’t really any different than hanging other types of window treatments. You just have to remember to keep a few of the basics in mind.
Start by choosing log cabin curtains and cabin valances that complement the room they will be in. If you have country cabin décor for example, you don’t want to be hanging Western curtains and valances. Rustic valances are also especially useful when you’re trying to incorporate accent colors. Deep greens and reds are very popular cabin accent colors and so you can pair a dark green rustic valance with cream or tan cabin curtains.
Once you’ve chosen the colors of your log cabin curtains and cabin valances, you can then choose how you want to hang the curtains. This is usually done by choosing the number of cabin curtain panels that you want to use. Using four panels and alternating them in color as you hang them gives off a very dramatic effect, and can look great even when using neutral colors. Or you could choose two of the same color to hang on the outside, with two different colored panels on the inside of the cabin curtains. Just choosing the panels for your cabin curtains goes a long way in deciding how they will ultimately look.
Next comes the rustic valance to pair with your curtains, and there are many ways to do this. You can simply hang a rustic valance and pair it with a sheer curtain to draw extra attention to the valance itself. This is also a really great look for country kitchens! Choosing a valance that will also match your curtains is another great way to really add a dramatic flair to any room. So if your cabin curtains are in a gorgeous red color that you love, choose a rustic valance that has red in it to really accent that color.
No matter what cabin curtains and rustic valances you choose, the one thing that you need to avoid is choosing cabin curtains that are completely one color and pairing them with valances that are also completely that same color. This gives no texture or detail to the window treatments and will only result in a giant block of color in the room, and it won’t blend in with the rest of your cabin décor as nicely.
