Cafe kitchen curtains hanging on the lower part of a window-provide moderate privacy at eye level while still letting you in lots of natural light. They look especially charming in the kitchens and breakfast rooms. Department and discount stores sell lots of finished versions, but some of the best cafe curved ideas are simple DIY styles. For an elegant look, use lace plates for your cafe curtains. Any lace panel will do, but handmade lace looks the best. Search antique malls and thrift shops for an old lace tablecloth for use as a running length.
Save money by buying a damaged one and just avoid the damaged parts when cutting your panels. Sew small rings to the top of your panels. Hang them from a thin wood or metal cafe kitchen curtains rod. Crocheted panels look like lace, but have a heavier, more homemade feel. Crochet your own, or shop thrift shops for old crocheted throws, baby blankets and shawls. Stick with black, white or neutral for a classic look, or go retro funky with colorful yarn. With heavier panels, you need a heavier looking rod. Try black or white iron with matching rings.

Decorative dishcloths (basically fancy tea towels) make large cafe kitchen curtains panels. Dishes are done edges so you do not have to sew. Department stores usually carry a good choice. Even better, shop craft markets and online charming handmade designs. Hang them from clips that match your curtain rod.
