Decorating a room involves many decisions, not only about the wall colour and furnishings. The beauty of a room is often in the details such as artwork, cushions, flooring, and what window covering will work for you.
If you’re uncertain how to choose Curtains for your rooms you’ve come to the right place. Curtains come in many designs and textures, and are perfect for creating a statement.
Changing your Curtains isn’t limited to when you decide to redesign a room. Choosing the right colour, size, and style can change the entire look of a room simply by changing the window covering.
Here’s three tips on how to co-ordinate Curtains with a room’s overall design.
How to choose Curtains with the right colour and fabric
Choosing the right Curtains is about more than selecting the right colour. The colour of the Curtains you choose is important, but so is the type of fabric and the length. You will need to decide on colour, texture, and pattern.
You may also want your Curtains to add height to the room. Understand that colours set the tone of a room. If you want a bright airy room, go with light colours in a lightweight fabric. For a more dramatic effect choose heavier fabrics in darker colours.
If colour isn’t your thing, look at neutral tones in linen fabrics. Curtains do not have to be the same colour as your furniture or bedding.
Will you need sheers or blinds?
A popular trend is to have two slim Curtain panels with sheers visible in the middle. People who enjoy a lot of sunlight choose this option.
Often when a window has Blinds of any size the option may be to go with a valance of side panels. This will help dress-up the walls surrounding the window especially if there is no wood trim.
