Choosing the Right Curtains For Each Room

When choosing curtains for your home, sometimes the choices can prove to be overwhelming. Fabric type? Colour? Pelmet? Tie-backs? Ready made? Made to measure?

It can be a difficult choice, but here are some tips from Super Cleaning Service Louisville that may help you select the most appropriate curtains for each room in your home.

Let’s start with the bedroom. As we all know, getting our 7-9 hours of sleep every night is very important and unless you are a very deep sleeper, natural daylight seeping through the windows at the crack of dawn or street light peeking through at night, can sometimes be an issue and affect our quality of sleep.

Most ready-made curtains will come with a standard lining, but for bedroom curtains, a blackout lining is often advised or even blackout curtains themselves. These are often heavier and thicker than a regular curtain and not only keep out light, but also some noise too.

In the end, it really boils down to how much light and privacy you want in your room.

It also depends on the weather where you live. If you live in a place that has cold winters, you may want to opt for a heavy curtain fabric with a thick lining in the bedroom and living room, to provide insulation. If you live somewhere that doesn’t get cold and you like the light to come in through the windows then you could opt for a sheer fabric or a light cotton. If your aim is for as much light to come through your window as possible, having clean windows is an important element of that. Dirt can often pile up on windows thus reducing light while also ruining how your windows look.

In terms of curtain design, it is important to work out if you would like your curtains to be decorative and stylish or if they are only required to be functional. Everybody has different requirements and tastes!

If the aesthetic is important to you and if your room already has busy decor, a plain, single colour fabric for the curtains would work well, perhaps selecting one colour from the wallpaper. Equally, if the room has relatively plain decoration, you could opt for a bold, patterned curtain or a colour that is in contrast to the walls.
Avoid using heavy curtain fabric (such as velvet) in small rooms as it can make them appear cramped and smaller than they are. A lighter, sheer fabric in smaller rooms will help them appear more spacious.

If you have large, bright spaces in your home, curtains that reach all the way to the floor can look great and make the rooms appear more cosy. Sheer fabrics, linen and other light coloured, un-lined curtains can look great in most spaces and often work well when combined with blinds. In the end it is all a matter of personal taste.
