Tips for Choosing Curtains

Posted on October 25, 2014

Tired of dull-looking rooms that look the same? Curtains are a great way to breathe life into a dreary-looking room.

As much as we want to give our rooms makeovers, we can’t always splurge on a big redecorating project. What you can do to change up the look and feel of a room instantly is to add curtains. Whether you’re going for a dramatic look or something light and refreshing, it’s a great way to touch up a room without breaking your budget.

Brighten up your rooms instantly with these cool curtain ideas:

  1. Pick the right fabric.

Fabrics can have different impacts on a room. For example, heavy drapes can look elegant and dramatic, but it can make a room feel stuffy. Consider the feel you want, as well as your personality. If you want a more relaxed look, go for curtains in lighter, softer fabrics.

  1. Choose a nice color or pattern.

When you want to brighten a room, go for light colors like aqua, light coral, or pastel yellow. Patterns are also becoming popular lately, and they add just the right amount of personality to a room.

  1. Choose a unique shower curtain for your bathroom.

Don’t leave your bathroom out in the redecorating process; buy a nice shower curtain! Shower curtains come in different colors, prints, and designs. Just pick one that suits your personality and the color scheme of your bathroom. For example, you can liven up an all white bathroom with a bright-colored curtain. They’re also great for kid’s bathrooms!

  1. Make sure your curtains are clean.

Odors and dirt can discolour curtains, making them look dreary. Vacuum or dust your curtains weekly to remove dust.
