How should you choose curtains for a living room or bedroom?
Choosing the right fabrication is very important when selecting curtains. Sheer curtains let in loads of light while still keeping your room private. Despite being unlined and unobtrusive, sheer or voile curtains can really add that light and airy finishing touch to any window. Sheers can also be layered with a blockout, patterned and textured curtain.
For warm, bright and sunny rooms choose a blockout curtain that will keep helps to keep out most light, helps to reduce noise ad regulate room temperature buy keeping them cool in summer and warm in winter and even help to protect your furniture from sun damage. If you are looking for a great value simple curtain our plain curtains are a great choice and work well in kids rooms and where simplicity is required.
When selecting a curtain colour, remember that neutral colours like creams, whites and greys work well in almost any room setting. A bold-coloured curtain could limit other décor choices in the room, so consider using your curtains to create a neutral backdrop and rather add colour in your accessories and accent pieces.
If you want your curtains to make a statement or add some colour, consider curtains that include patterns and textures. Where possible, install our curtain rod higher than your window. This will help to make a window look bigger. You should also extend the curtain rail beyond the frame of the window, so that when your curtains are fully open, you are not restricting the light coming in from your windows. This can also help your windows to look wider. As a rule of thumb, curtains should just touch the floor, or rest a centimetre or two above it.
