- Layering the curtains
The question of how to make curtains with 2 different fabrics has an easy answer- layering,
Layering is perhaps the easiest way to achieve the two curtained look. It will have one of the two curtains peeking out from behind the other curtain. One way you can get this done using a double curtain rod. You can also sew the two curtains at the top leaving the sides and the bottom part open. Pair opaque curtains with sheer and light curtains or go for lace curtains with solid colored ones.
- Using linings
You can get the two different curtained look by using curtain liners too. Just choose a liner of a completely different color or pattern and lo and behold you have a surprisingly classy and rich look for your windows.
- Color blocking
Another easy way of doing the 2 fabrics, one curtain look is to use color blocking. Have 1/3rd of the curtain drape be of one color and let the rest be of a different color. Choose contrasting colors, white with a bold color, black with a lighter color or even two different hues of the same color family. The result will enchant the beholder.
- Same color different fabrics
Choose two curtains of the very same color but let the materials or the textures of the fabrics be completely different. For example, pair a solid light blocking curtain at the periphery of the windows and then let the middle of the window be draped with a sheer curtain. This will give you the added advantage of choosing whether to let the light in or not. You could use the light blocking curtain to shut the light off all the way or use the sheers to have a bit of privacy while letting the light in at the same time.
- Same fabric different color
This is just a variation of the point above. You can just choose the same fabric for both the elements of your curtain, just let them be of different colors. It can be two curtains of different colors, it can be of different patterns or one of the two can be of a solid color and the other can be patterned.
- Different windows of the room with different colored curtains
If you have more than one window in your room, you can choose to drape one of the windows in one color and the other window with another color. You can let it be of tow colors from the same family, two textures in the same color or one window can be draped in a solid colored fabric and the other can be patterns that match with the chosen color. If you are feeling a little adventurous, you can also go for completely different curtains and have it linked to each other using the furniture or other elements in the room.
