Your curtains play an essential role in the overall atmosphere of the rooms in your home. Choosing the right window treatment can be challenging. You have to consider for example the color of your curtains and whether or not they will match your furniture and carpeting. With a combination of other factors, curtains can have a unique way of transforming a room.
Make a Small Room Look Larger
If you have a small room that you want to make look larger, then choose curtains that are light in color. Ideally, the classic floor panel curtains work great. Also, instead of hanging your curtain rod even with the window’s woodwork, hang it close to the ceiling to give the appearance of a higher ceiling and a larger room.
Make a Room Brighter
A colorful curtain in any type of fabric will turn your dimly lit room into a bright and beautiful room. If you hang sheers and curtains over the top of the windows of the room in focus, they will also add a touch of elegance to the room.
Temperature Control Window Treatment
Whether you want to keep the heat out and the cool air in or the cold out and the heat inside of your home, there are several different types of curtains that you can purchase to help with your home’s temperature control including the following:
All four of these fabrics work great at keeping your home’s temperature where you want it. Also, keep in mind, you can have a seamstress sew together a fabric called a “bump,” a felt-like fabric that has the same effect as the types of curtains listed above.
Window Treatment Tips
The most durable type of curtain is the faux silk; you can hang this style of curtain in a room that gets lots of sunlight and not have to worry about it fading.
Over time, the fabric color you choose may fade from the sunlight, so if color fading is a concern when selecting curtains, avoid bright colors. Neutral colored curtains are best because they will match and blend with the rest of the room’s decor.
