Choosing a kitchen tulle

Tulle is a flowing translucent curtain fabric, which in its structure is something middle between the woven and woven fabric. Today this type of fabric, which received its name in honor of the French town of the same name, has already become a household name. Tulle is often called any transparent curtains of chiffon, veil, marquiset and organza.


Tulle for the kitchen has extraordinary decorative features

Shape and length

The choice of shape and length of tulle for the decoration of windows dictates the specificity and design of the kitchen. The main criterion in this regard is practicality. Therefore, the best option for decorating kitchen window openings is a short tulle or a light curtain of medium length to the window sill.


A beautiful and practical solution for the kitchen

This option allows the functional use of the window sill as an additional working surface.


And besides, a short curtain in a small kitchen, the windows of which are in the immediate vicinity of the sink or stove, will be less polluted and endangered by accidentally igniting the included cooking zone.


Giving the drapery framing the window opening, such a shape as in the photo, you can profitably emphasize the elegance of the design of a modern room

Easy flowing material is the best suited for sewing:

  • curtains in the form of arches;
  • strict Roman curtains, which are vertical sections of fabric, which, thanks to the sliding structure, are assembled into spectacular folds;
  • laconic Japanese panels, each part of which moves independently of each other;
  • Light curtains, supplemented with metallic impregnations of threads;
  • playful Austrian curtains in combination with lambrequins, lace and fringe.

Tulle arch looks interesting due to the shape of the curtain with an arcuate bottom edge. It freely passes the sunlight, does not interfere with the ventilation of the room and does not “overload” the limited space. A vivid confirmation of this is a selection of photos of modern design with the use of a tulle-arch.

Long drapes at the frame of windows are chosen for decorating spacious rooms. Tulle curtains in the floor favorably emphasize the height of the ceilings and the aristocratic design.

All the variety of color solutions can be summed up to three options:

  • white – the most common option, because it is able to organically supplement any design;

Material selection

Due to the specificity of the kitchen area, when choosing textile design elements, it is important to pay special attention to the quality and composition of the material. The curtain should not be a mark, resistant to soaking odors, easy to wash. All these qualities are possessed by modern combined or mixed fabrics made from a mixture of synthetic and natural fibers.


Blended fabrics are less susceptible to contamination than natural

As a frame of window openings, kitchens are often used:

  • veil – soft, pliable material with a translucent matte structure, ideal for sewing curtains;
  • chiffon – looks like a veil, but much softer and lighter;
  • mesh – cellular fabric rough to the touch perfectly passes sunlight and air, but on the embossed surface kitchen fumes and dust often accumulate;
  • organza – a rigid transparent fabric, does not crumple and is easily draped.

Tulle is a universal material that successfully combines lightness and transparency. Despite the visual weightlessness, the mesh fabric can have a rather dense structure, providing a decent protection against direct sunlight and hiding what is happening in the kitchen from curious passers-by.

How beautiful to hang a tulle in the kitchen

The easiest way to drape a translucent tulle for a kitchen is to add a falling strip of cloth along its entire length, forming longitudinal folds, and then throw it through the cornice once or twice. For the implementation of this design of the kitchen window or door, tubular or string patterns of the cornices should be used.


Applying the technique shown in the photo, you can turn a window opening into a real work of art

As a result of such manipulations, the middle part of the canvas will hang over the center of the window in a small semicircle, and its free ends will fall along the lateral sides of the window opening.

The main advantage of tulle cloth is its ability to easily succumb to drapery. It can be made symmetrical and asymmetric. Fix the canvases so that they completely open the window opening or, conversely, completely cover it.

drapery options

A variety of options for draperies – a great opportunity to contribute to the modern design of refinement elegance

One and the same curtain can be draped in at least two ways. Just a couple of strokes – and the interior will “play” in a new way, creating the illusion of renewing the window decor.

Beautiful drape curtains, giving them a luxurious presentable appearance, can be done in two simple ways:

  1. Fix the transverse or longitudinal folds when sewing the product.
  2. Create waves and tails by fixing with magnets, staples, rings or picks.
picking up

Using picks of this type as in the photo, you can give curtains extraordinary and bizarre shapes

Among the popular options for tulle upholstery for a kitchen in a confined space are the most advantageous:

  • Classical single wave – it is formed in the center of the canvas. To create a wave from the inside, the curtains “grab” the area, forming a descending wave of the desired height.
  • Double wave – differs by a double group of folds. To create it, firstly, a volumetric sagging of the web forms, and a little lower a less lush isogenous wave.
  • Lateral festons – the lower drapery is a spectacular W-shaped fold, displaced closer to the bottom edge of the fabric. It is created with the help of decorative pins and sticks with magnetic inserts.

For a spectacular modern drapery podkvaty fixed on both sides of the canvas, just dragging a few centimeters up.

To make the drapery even more interesting, use, as in the photo, a tulle of contrasting shades

Create perfectly flat vertical folds, giving the canvas a neat and orderly appearance, the easiest way to use eyelets. They are plastic, wooden or metal rings, fixed along the upper line of the cloth, designed to be worn on a round cornice.


Presented on the phototype of fixation is convenient in that it makes it easy to push the curtains without disturbing the beauty of the drapery

Important! The thickness of the drape when using the eyelets depends on the diameter of the rings and on the distance at which they are located.

For cross draperies use double-row cornices. The curtains are placed one after the other, spreading across the entire width of the window, and then bred in different directions and fixed with pick-ups.


The area of ​​crossing the curtains on the photo looks like lambrequin

To make the cross-over area shorter, the place for fixing the curtains needs to be moved just above the middle.

Options for combining tulle and curtains

In modern design, the options for combining tulle curtains with other types of curtains are not lost. Interesting are the combinations:

  • tulle, supplemented by Roman curtains;
  • paired with thread curtains;
  • tulle curtains decorated with calico or cotton lambrequins;
  • Chiffon linens, combined with muslin.

The photo clearly demonstrates that tulle and muslin look great together on one window

It is believed that the Roman curtains themselves are self-sufficient and with the task of decorating windows are able to cope without using other types of curtains. But in assembled form they bare the lower part of the window opening, making the room well viewed from the side of the street. This is where the translucent tulle comes in handy.


In such a tandem, the Roman curtains perform night protection function, and the flowing tulle – day curtains

The methods of combining tulle with Roman curtains are more than a dozen. They can be selected in one color range or played in contrast, fixed crosswise or “attached” to waves using pick-up or curtain tape. The main thing is to remember that tulle in this duet performs exclusively decorative function of “smoothing the corners”.
