How Much Do Beaded Curtains Cost?

 
 average costMedium: $20-$50 per panel 
post E-mail post Post  

Long a symbol of 1970s interior decorating style, beaded curtains serve real purposes in contemporary homes. Made of long strands of wooden, plastic, bamboo, or shell beads, beaded curtains create a visual screen across a doorless closet or a divider across two connected spaces. Beaded curtains can also create an unusual permanent window covering.

Typical costs:

  • Beaded curtains cost $20-$50 per panel. Inexpensive beaded curtains are usually made with plastic or bamboo; some have bright colors and funky shapes that work well in a child's bedroom. The more expensive beaded curtains have hand-painted designs on them and may be made with glass beads.

What should be included:
  • A bead curtain usually includes one 36-inch or 42-inch wide panel, with strings of beads suspended from a wooden or plastic dowel or rod. Hardware to hang the dowel is usually not included.
Additional costs:
  • Hardware to hang the dowel or rod across a doorway or window, including brackets and screws, can be purchased at most home improvement stores like Home Depot[1] or Lowes[2] . Hardware costs $5-$30 depending on quality.
Discounts:
  • Check online at sites like Overstock.com[3] and Amazon[4] .
Shopping for beaded curtains:
  • Contemporary ethnic styled beaded curtains are sold at Cost Plus World Market[5] , JCPenney and online at Amazon[6] .
  • For vintage 70s style beaded curtains, complete with designs painted onto the strings of beads, shop online at Simply70s.com.
  • The website beadedcurtains.com[7] sells both wooden and plastic beaded curtains on a wholesale basis (tax ID # required for purchase) with a minimum $75 order.
