When it comes to decorating the house, every house owner wants to add their personal touch and feel to everything. And where this covers things like the furniture and décor, it also includes the drapery. At Dollar Curtains & Blinds, we enable you to achieve this through bespoke curtains that resonate with the mood and visual appeal you want around your home.

Whether you’re looking for classic elegance, eclectic chic or a modern contemporary feel, curtains from Dollar Curtains & Blinds provide colour and impact to every room. In addition to the exciting and endless visual opportunities they offer, there are many practical reasons that make them a wise and long-term investment.

Superior Quality at Affordable Prices

With bespoke curtains from Dollar Curtains & Blinds, homeowners can steer safe of generic curtains that lack quality and durability. Such window treatments typically last for a shorter while before they get sun damaged or experience tear.

On the other hand, if you select from our exclusive Free Make curtain fabric range, not only do you get superior and Australian-made custom-made curtains, but you also won’t have to pay for the making of your curtains! So you can enjoy all of the practical benefits which make custom-made curtains a wise choice but for an affordable price. We also make it easy for you when selecting your fabric and colour with our full-length curtain samples which you can take home and hang up.

Improved Energy Efficiency

Custom-made curtains not only look better, but they also can save you money by cutting your energy bill. Our curtains have insulating properties that help block the outdoor temperatures from entering your home, and this is especially important in the upcoming Winter. Being one of the best window treatments at improving your home’s insulation, drapes can preserve up to 20% of the total heat in your home.

Hence, custom-made curtains are more than just items that add to a room’s visual appeal. They are a great investment from an energy-efficiency perspective as well.

Flexible Light Control

Many homeowners struggle to find a good balance of light control with window treatments. Often, natural lighting is limited in a space and you don’t want to cover your windows with thick curtains that block it out. Our Free Make curtains provide excellent light control, privacy and reduce outside noise levels, allowing you to effortlessly and effectively control your environment depending on the occasion and your mood.

By getting bespoke curtains from Dollar Curtains and Blinds, you can get the best fabric while enjoying all of the other benefits that come with curtains as mentioned above!

2 Ways To Complement Your Designer Curtains With Accent Colours

Brianna Hatton - Sunday, May 29, 2016

Here are some tips from our fabric wholesaler charles parsons interiors on how to complement your curtains with accent colours!

Accent colours are a staple in any interior designer's arsenal. They work a treat when it comes to creating a cohesive look, because this single line of colour placed strategically around the room brings harmony and unison to the space. Because of this, picking a single accent colour and introducing it in creative ways around a room can really help the decor shine.

Of course, with so much importance placed on an accent hue, and with such a kaleidoscopic range of colours to choose from, it can be difficult to narrow down to just one single accent. This is where your designer curtains can come to the rescue.

Why designer curtains are ideal accents

Curtains are a block of colour in any room, especially when they are drawn closed. Even better, because curtains are based near the perimeter of a room along the windows, they become a default background to the room's furniture and decorative objects. Due to these reasons, curtains are a great inspiration for your accent colour.

Here are two sophisticated and stylish ways to bring out the colour of your curtains with accent items dotted around the room.

1) Place accent colours using the 60-30-10 rule

This rule is a favourite within colour theory and interior design education. In a nutshell, it involves 60 per cent of a dominant colour, 30 per cent of a secondary colour and 10 per cent of an accent colour. Your walls would count as the dominant tone, while furniture upholstery and carpets the secondary. Accent hues should only cover 10 per cent of the room for ideal balance.

Once you have picked your curtain fabric, keep a lookout for the curtain's primary colour in decorative objects such as vases and candle stands while you are browsing homeware stores. Don't overdo the accent so it stays within the 10 per cent rule. Place them on coffee tables as vases, as cushions against the sofa or as the frame for your family photographs hung on the walls.

An orange curtain is used as the accent colour inspiration for the rest of the room. 

2) Introduce the accent through a contrasting trim along the curtain

Elle Decor recommends turning your curtain design itself into an ode to accent colours by adding a contrasting trim to neutral-toned textiles. For instance, designer Steven Gambrel created beige curtains with a cobalt blue trim inspired by a naval uniform for his Manhattan townhouse's living room.

You can custom design your own curtain pattern using Charles Parsons' extensive range of commercial textiles. In this way, you can pre-plan your accent colour by adding it as a trim.
