Attention (Frugal) Print Lovers: Printed Curtains Under $50

Attention (Frugal) Print Lovers: Printed Curtains Under $50

I love printed curtains and I love holding onto my money so I am the perfect person to research frugal curtain finds. As I started, I found many draperies (with an 84" minimum) priced at $100 and under for a pair. Curtains are expensive, after all, so surely, $50 a panel/$100 a pair was a deal. Then I decided this was too easy a task — I can do better than that and I love a challenge! So I cut my initial budget in half to $25 a panel/$50 a pair, and started my quest.

If you're looking for solid colored curtains, a $50/pair budget can be rather manageable. You'll find some good cotton offerings or faux linens at places like IKEA, Target, Overstock, definitely plenty of voiles and sheers, as well. But as a renter of a character-less condo, I need to add visual interest wherever I can, so I'm for prints all the way. If I'm speaking your language here, you're in luck, because I dug around and found 15 really great options, whether you're into florals, geometrics, abstracts or stripes. And, of course, they're all under $50 a set.
