How to pick the right curtains for every room

Choosing curtains or drapes 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.

Bedroom curtains

If your bedroom faces west, it'll be exposed to the glorious rays of the morning sun. If it faces east, it will stay bright until late in the evening. Consider thick, blackout curtains for your bedroom that will help prevent the light from disturbing your sleep.

A decoration tip is to install roller blinds behind your curtains, in a complementary color. 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 latest boxset. Room darkening curtains will help keep the light out when you want to lose yourself in a new film.

If sun glare hitting your TV is not an issue, you might want to choose some bright sheer curtains that glow radiant in the daylight. We also offer beautiful, patterned curtains that go well with any living room décor style.

Kitchen curtains

Venetian blinds are a good idea for dressing up kitchen windows. This because they can easily be wiped down if soapy water manages to escape the sink while you’re doing the dishes. Venetian blinds can also be complemented by a stylish window valance.

Bathroom curtains

For bathrooms, privacy is primary consideration. Choose bathroom curtains that cover the entire window, but still let daylight through. We offer a wide variety of bathroom window treatments to suit designs, sizes and layouts of all kinds.

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. Place them a bit higher and wider than the window, and you can create the illusion of a larger room. IKEA’s curtain collection includes a host of long flowing drapes in different colors 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 giving children some private play space anywhere in your home.

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!
