What is the next thing you choose for your house after furniture? It is curtains off course. Curtains are not just the lengths of colorful fabrics that covers your windows. They have many purposes, most important of which is enhancing the design of your house. You will find in this article some smart tips for choosing curtains.
1- The first thing you have to do is obviously taking measurements. Measure the length and width of the windows. Add about 25 centimeters to be sure.
2- Choose a proper material to hide your curtain rails. Something like blaster will work fine and will accentuate the decor of the surrounding area. Blaster is suitable for areas like bedrooms, kitchens and living rooms.
3- Choose proper material and proper curtain width for how much light the area will get. A window that gets much light needs a curtain that has over two times its width. Also, consider using different double fabrics one for decoration and the other for blocking light.
4- Decide on the purpose of the curtains. A curtain hung above the bed or on the walls is only for decoration. So you could choose sheer fabrics for your curtain as light is not the issue here. In addition, insulative curtains which you need for preserving temperature needs double layers, one of which is an insulative fabric to preserve temperature.
5- Choose a material suitable for the design of the room and the whole design of the house. Traditional decor needs curtains that are similarly extravagant, so your choice then will be velvet or something similar. On the other hand, modern decor needs something simpler.
Curtains are one of the most important decor accessories, and it even does a lot more than making your room look gorgeous, so choose them carefully.
