10 Tips To The Right Curtain Selection

Here are ten tips for picking the right curtains for your home:

  1. Fabric: Choose a fabric that suits the room's style and purpose. Sheer fabrics allow light to filter through, while heavier fabrics provide privacy and insulation.

  2. Length: Decide whether you want floor-length curtains that puddle on the floor or ones that just touch the floor for a cleaner look.

  3. Colour: Consider the room's colour scheme and whether you want the curtains to blend in or make a statement. Neutral tones are versatile, while bold colour or patterns can add personality.

  4. Light Control: Determine how much light you want to filter or block out. Lighter fabrics let more light in, while darker fabrics provide better light control and privacy.

  5. Lining: Choose lined curtains for better insulation, light control, and durability. Thermal linings can help regulate temperature and save energy.

  6. Hardware: Select curtain rods or tracks that complement your decor style and support the weight of your curtains.Sooo many options , but check out recessed tracks “my favourite”. 

  7. Maintenance: Consider how easy the curtains are to clean and maintain, especially if you have pets or children.

  8. Budget: Set a budget for your curtains and consider factors like fabric quality, size, and customisation options.

  9. Samples: Before making a final decision, order fabric samples to see how they look in your space and how they interact with different lighting conditions.

When it comes to choosing colours and price brackets, think about your personal preferences, the room's decor, and your budget. Neutral colours like white, beige, or grey are versatile and can blend with any decor style, while bold colours or patterns can make a statement and add visual interest. Consider your existing furniture and decor colours to ensure the curtains complement the overall aesthetic. As for the price bracket, it's essential to balance quality and affordability.
