How to Transform a Room With Curtains

Opting for high quality, beautiful curtains in your home can be one of the simplest ways to add a touch of style and luxury to it. You can make curtains a real feature of your room, choosing a particular theme, colour or pattern to really showcase your taste. On entering a room, our eyes will always be drawn towards the window as this is the lightest area and so framing your windows can really enhance this feature. Curtains also have many uses; to shade from sunlight glare in the room, to keep your room cool and to ensure darkness during night time. They can also assist in creating a beautiful ambiance in the room particularly during the beautiful 'golden time' when the sun is setting. And so it's certainly worth investing some time in choosing the right curtains for you. 


One of the first things to consider is the type of fabric you would like. Would you prefer a soft sheer fabric like Voile fabric which looks and feels lighter and allows in more sun, or would a denser fabric like wool or suede be preferred? It's important to consider what function you would like your curtains to provide as this can be a great starting point in selecting your fabric. For bedrooms, it's advisable to choose a fabric that can ensure optimum darkness.

Once you've decided on your preferred fabric type, you can then move on to selecting the colour and theme. There is a huge array of different styles available from plains to floral, geometric, striped or checked designs to name just a few options. Consider how the theme or colour would fit the style, furniture or decor of your room, or you may wish to find the perfect curtains and then design the room in accordance with them. Whatever your choice, you'll be sure to find a style in keeping with your taste. 


When searching for the perfect handmade curtains, consider their ideal position by the window. Would you prefer a single curtain hung to the left or right of the window or a pair of curtains? You can also opt for a range of different header types, for example, a pencil pleat, eyelet, pinch or goblet headings. You can also decide on what type of linings you would like the curtains to have.
