Ask Casa: Affordable Patterned Curtains

JCPenney at ShopStyle

Dear Casa,
I've been looking for some patterned or printed curtains that are reasonably priced, and I need some help. I love the Anthropologie ones, but they are too expensive. Do you have any ideas on where to look?
Thanks,
Bplane

To hear my suggestions for Bplane,

Hi Bplane,
Your dilemma is a common one — Anthropologie is a wonderful source of inspiration, as well as credit card debt. Luckily, there are plenty of other drapery retailers that won't require you to sell your furniture to buy a new set of curtains. Since you haven't invited me to your home, I'm not sure what aesthetic you're going for, but I've rounded up a selection for you anyway. So, you'll have to do some of the legwork here, and choose what works best for you!

Hope that helps! And, Ikea is also a great source for affordable textiles, so be sure to check out that selection.
Cheers,
Casa

There are a few good curtain stores on line that allow you to order special sizes without a hefty fee. I know because I have done so and I have been very pleased!

i second (or fourth haha) ikea, but you could also look into having a tailor whip some up for you. i just took some pants in to be hemmed (yeah, i don't sew AT ALL) and the place i went had a bunch of signs up about making curtains. i have no idea how expensive it would be, but it's probably worth a few phone calls.

Unfortunately, many of the curtains and sources in the slideshow aren't much cheaper than Anthropologie unless it's on sale. You might also want to check out Urban Outfitters and West Elm.

Like Aimeeb said, Ikea is definitely a good place to check first...they have some cute ones for very cheap. Not the biggest selection, but it's worth checking out. Most of my curtains are from Country Curtains--I've always had good luck with them. Reasonable prices too.

Don't rule out fabric shower curtains, either!

Good idea, apriljoanne. I've done that before as well.

I highly recommend making your own curtains!! It's so easy. Just get some great fabric and sew the top over. To take a more decorative approach, you could cut scraps of fabric to make rings on the top and sew cute buttons etc., on them.Another idea is to find a nice table cloth and just sew over the top, that's what I did in our bedroom and it cost $10 total.

Country Curtains is another good online/catalog source for window treatments. They have a website you can browse or order a free catalog.
