Decorating with Curtains


Do you want to make a room in your house look fresh with a whole new look? One of the most affordable and quickest ways to do so is adding or changing curtains. Curtains make a huge difference.

Choosing Colors

  • Warm shades of reds, yellows, and pinks add life to a quiet room.

  • Cool colors such as grey, white, and blue give the room a soft look.

  • Green and browns add a pleasing earth tone.

The key is to pick the colors that make you feel good and also maybe try complementing the other colors already in the room.

Curtain Length

  • Longer curtains will visually lengthen a window and add perceived height.

  • Curtains that drape to the floor give the room a more formal touch.

  • Shorter curtains to the sill give the room a casual feel. Generally found in a kitchen.

Light Control

  • To soften and filter the incoming light, choose laces or sheers, which produce a wonderful effect, and work well if you are layering fabrics.

  • To block out light, try a lined or insulated curtain or a fabric shade.

  • Fabric and insulated curtains offer privacy when you want it, and allow you to let in lots of light when you choose so.

Rods and Hardware

  • Curtain rods come in various shapes, styles, and materials. Finials help create a silhouette.

  • Ruffled or tailed curtains work well with continental or mesa rods.

  • Tab curtains on wooden or wrought-iron rods may suit your taste.

  • There’s a look available for everyone. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

Have fun while decorating! Pride and satisfaction come with making your own personal design statement for your home.
