Choosing curtains for a home can be a fun and creative process. Here are some steps to help you choose the right curtains. As shown in this video, it’s vital to consider the purpose of the custom curtains. Doing so helps decide on the type and thickness of the fabric.
Take into account the function and style of the room. For example, in a bedroom, you may want curtains that block out light and provide privacy, while in a living room, you may prefer sheer curtains to let in natural light. Then measure the width and length of your windows to ensure you purchase the right size curtains. Consider whether you want floor-length curtains or ones that cover the window.
The fabric is a big part of the curtains and how they look in the room. Heavier fabrics like velvet or brocade can add elegance and insulation. Lighter fabrics like linen or cotton can create an airy and casual vibe. Consider how much natural light you want in the room and pick the right fabric to match your needs.
Curtains can tie the whole room together, so choose a color or pattern that complements your existing decor. Consider the color of your walls, furniture, and other textiles. If you want the curtains to become the main feature in the room, select a bold color or pattern.
