How To Choose Curtains

< blog home

Starting this month, we will have a “How To…” section on our blog giving you some ideas on interior design tips. For February, we are talking about Curtains.

Curtains make the room feel warm and cozy. They also provide privacy and allow regulate the amount of natural light coming in. When you are choosing curtains, consider the size of the room, the style of the decor, and the colors that will best fit the room’s color scheme and reflect your personality.

Style

There are many styles of curtains as well as types of window treatments. Choose the curtain style that will fit both the style of the room and your needs. If you are more interest in floral pattern, make sure the curtains match your window treatment and your room reflects the same style and feel.

Measurements

Some curtains look better when they are short and others look better when they are long. Measure the windows to determine the length and width of the future curtains. Make sure to take into consideration all the nuances to get the right size. Will the curtains be long or medium? Will they hang down from the ceiling to make it look higher? Will they look good if it’s short? These are the questions you have to ask yourself before purchasing.

Colors

Make sure the curtains fit the room’s color scheme when you are choosing. If the room is light, and monochrome bright-colored or patterned curtains can add a splash of color and detail into the room. If the room is small, keep them simple and monochrome. If the color scheme is busy and filled with patterns, opt for single color in curtains to enhance the focal point of the room.

Fabric

Organic fabrics tend to have higher quality as they are more durable and better-looking. Most of all, they don’t have to be extremely expensive.
