How to pick the right curtains for every room
Choosing curtains for your bedroom, living room or kitchen can be challenging. To make it easier, your first considerations should be practical. Note which direction the room faces, consider what the room is used for, and plan accordingly. Here are a few tips:
If your bedroom faces west, it'll be exposed to the glorious rays of the morning sun. If it faces east, your bedroom will stay bright until late in the evening. Consider thick, blackout bedroom curtains that will help prevent the light from disturbing your sleep.
A decoration tip is to install roller blinds behind your curtains in a complementary colour. This adds an extra element of depth to the room.
Living room curtains
If you have an east-facing living room, and your TV faces your windows, the setting sun’s glare could ruin your binge-watching. Darkening curtains will help keep the light out when you want to lose yourself in a new film.
If reflections in the TV is not an issue, you might want to choose some bright sheer curtains that glow radiantly in the daylight. Or maybe select a beautiful, patterned curtain that goes well with your living room design.
Venetian blinds are a good idea for kitchens. This because they can easily be wiped down if soapy water manages to escape the sink while you’re doing the dishes. Complement the venetian blinds with a cute window valance.
For bathroom curtains, privacy is also a thing to consider. Choose curtains that cover the whole bathroom window, but still lets the daylight through.
How to hang long curtains
Long curtains can be installed in several ways. Hang them right next to the window to create a nice textile frame around your view outside. If you place them a bit higher and wider than the window, you can create the illusion of a larger room. Here you can play around with different colours and shades to create a dynamic atmosphere.
How to use curtains as room dividers
With a nice thick curtain, you can create the feeling of two unique and private spaces in the same room. This is a great option for making a small home office space in the living room. Or maybe you can give your children some space for themselves if they share a room.
To use a long curtain as a room divider, you need to place a rod or rail in the ceiling. Locate it in the middle of the room, or wherever you want the wall of curtains to be placed. Then simply hang the curtains, and voila!
Frequently asked questions about curtains
What type of curtain is best for the living room?
Choose living room curtains based on their function and the type of style you’d like to express. Select from sheer curtains that let in most light to semi-sheer window curtains that softly filter light while providing privacy. While you can solely go with heavier curtains, there’s also the option to pair room darkening curtains or blackout drapes with lighter panel curtains or drapes.
Should curtains match the sofa or the carpet?
Just as curtains thankfully don’t have to match your hardwood floors, having contrast between the color and look of your furniture, carpeting and drapes can make for a more striking and balanced sense of style in any room. Contrasting elements create stunning focal points while still complimenting other furniture and fabrics in their own unique way. Meanwhile, you can also match the look and feel of your carpet or sofa with your window curtains. For instance, white sheer curtains can complement white carpets and light fabrics like lace on white sofas.
Which curtain fabric do I need?
That depends on the look you’d like to achieve and the amount of light you’d like to filter. Whether lighter or heavier curtains or drapes, you can choose from a wide variety of fabrics, including 100% cotton light filtering drapes whose curves have the elegance of a ballroom dress. There are modern panel curtains in alluring colors made with an 80/20 blend of paper and polyester that offer a stunning aesthetic while cutting down on glare and affording privacy. There are lacy, affordable sheer curtains and blackout curtains made of durable, easy-to-clean polyester.
