    Default Rental property curtains

    We are soon to be moving into a rental property that has curtains - floral curtains! Whilst they are not absolutely hideous, they are certainly not my taste (we have always rented properties with blinds).

    Any suggestions on how I could inexpensively make things more tasteful? Buying some neutral replacement curtains is an option, but they would have to be cheap, and I have no clue where to source bargain curtains.

    I'm no decorating queen so I'd love some help

    I bought some plain tab top curtains from Freedom, they were around $45 per length (x4) for a big picture window.

    I pack theirs up and put up my own. You get some material from spotlight and whip them up yourself (very simple sewing) or get ready made ones from places like big w, k mart, spotlight, even bunnings sell them.
