Curtain Door Panels For Cabinets

One way to cover up an ugly or missing cabinet door is fit it with curtain door panels. This can be a great way to add to your kitchen decorating theme and if the cabinets are ugly to begin with you might want to consider removing the doors and adding a frame that is covered with fabric or a curtain!

You can fit curtain door panels to an opening with a tension rod at the top, or create a cabinet door "frame" and sew the curtain around it. You can even make your own curtains out of fabric that matches the window curtains, tablecloth and napkins or buy curtains that are for windows (although you may have to cut these to fit).

To attach curtain door panels with a tension rod, simply buy a rod that fits the opening. You'll need to decide if you want to use 1 curtain or 2. Your opening may not be big enough for 2 curtains, unless of course, you are making the curtains yourself and then you can make them any size you want! Either way, make sure your curtains are bigger than the opening so that they are bunched up when you hang them.

If you are making a frame for your curtain door panels, measure the frame to fit the size of the opening and attach the appropriate hinges. Cut the fabric so that it is bigger than the frame and folds over the edge of it. Staple the fabric to the back of the frame. Finish off the edges that are stapled with some ribbon or edging so that you won't see the raw staples when the door is open.

Some cute additions to your curtains are:

  • Pom Pom edging
  • Rows of ribbons sewn onto the bottom edge - gives it a layered effect
  • Buttons sewn on - a row on the bottom of buttons that match your decorating theme
