Implement your home design with curtains
“Hang curtains. They make a room seem finished. Think of them as the lipstick of decorating.” – Peter Dunham
If windows are the eyes of the house, make them more beautiful with curtains as shadows. It’s magical how minor changes can have a huge effect on the whole design. This is also the case with curtains. If you want to make something different, buy new curtains and you will get the result. A bigger effect is to hang a curtain for the first time.
We can all agree that floor to ceiling windows are better and prettier without curtains, because their purpose is to bring you natural light and a beautiful view. Otherwise, other types of windows can have different models of curtains. Let’s see the importance of the curtains at home.
How to choose the right curtain
Depending on the window and space, you need to choose the proper size for your curtain and to know the main purpose of it. You can buy a curtain that covers just a portion of the window(tier curtain). If you want a floor curtain, it looks excellent with a rod near the ceiling.
A good start is to measure the height from the rod where the curtains hang to the bottom of the material. There are standard dimensions: 63, 84, 95, 108, and 120 inches.
Pick the right material
Common fabrics are cotton, silk, polyester, velvet, damask, linen, lace, etc. Different factors are included in choosing the fabric. The first one is your style and the style of your room, and the second one is the purpose.
- If you want to achieve the luxury effect, buy silk curtains, velvet, damask, or even heavy cotton curtains.
- If you want to save your budget and get durable and easy to maintain curtains, choose polyester.
- Velvet curtains are a perfect choice to block the natural light in the room.
- To bring lights and shine from the outside, pick cotton or sheer.

Curtains in the living room
Before you pick the curtain for your living room, have in mind to match it with the style, textile, color of the wall and furniture. It’s also important to have brightness with curtains. Make a balance with the color tone and texture in the room. If the space and design allows it, a brilliant match with curtains is draperies. If you have a few windows in the room, they should be in the same color and length.
Curtains in the kitchen
Sometimes kitchens don´t need curtains. Otherwise, if you need it, common choices are curtains and blinds. If you want to have more privacy and block the natural light, blinds are perfect for you. They are also easy to clean. For bringing a natural light inside and getting a more traditional look, pick curtains. Curtains are excellent for long and big windows. You can buy curtains in a specific color or pattern.
