 Choosing the Right Curtains for Your Room

Choosing the Right Curtains for Your Room

Jul 14th 2021

You’ve got the furniture, the cabinets, the barn doors, and the accessories all set for your room makeover. But there’s one thing left that can make or break your decor: curtains.

Curtains aren't just a way to block out light. They add a certain presence to the room — setting the mood and complementing the architecture of your home. From breezy to elegant to ornamental, the possibilities are endless.

To take some of the guesswork out of the equation, we’ve put together a quick guide to take you through your curtain design journey. Here are a few design tips to help you choose the perfect curtains for your room.

1. Picking the Right Fabric

The material of the curtains plays an important role in the final look. From heavy velvet to lightweight cotton, you’ve got plenty of options to choose from:

If you want lots of natural light. Sheer fabric will create a soft, ethereal look, while a cotton fabric will keep things light and breezy

If you want a moderate amount of light. Linen curtains offer a textured look that lets in some light, but not too much

If you want most of the light to be blocked out. Perfect for bedrooms or other private spaces, heavy velvet curtains will make a strong statement in any room, while also keeping out unwanted sunlight

2. Adding a Pop of Color

With each fabric option comes a dizzying array of new color choices. The right curtain color can transform the look of any room.

If you want your curtains to stand out, go for a bold color. For something more timeless and classic, you can’t go wrong with a neutral solid color. Keep in mind that whatever color you choose should be in sync with the color palette you’ve chosen for the rest of the room. Your chosen shade should either harmonize with the rest of the decor — or create a powerful contrast.

3. Mixing Up the Patterns

Simple, classy, and seamless is always best when it comes to curtains. But that doesn’t mean you can’t play around with patterns.

For example, a floral pattern can add a traditional and romantic feel to sheer or linen curtains. A striped tone can add some visual weight to your room decor. Quirky prints and geometric patterns will create a bold and modern look.

4. Finding All the Right Accessories

Whether you’re dressing things up or toning them down, accessories for curtains can put a finishing touch on your decor.

A simple pull-back with no decorative trims will create a sleek and minimalist look. For something more rich and elegant, a tasseled trim or a brass tieback can embellish the look of your room.

The Perfect Complement to Your Room Decor

The right curtains can transform your space — but only if you choose wisely. With these design tips in mind, you can pick the perfect curtains to make your space feel complete.

Want to complement your curtains with something a bit bolder? You might think barn doors are strictly for farmhouses, but a sliding barn door is versatile enough to work with any design concept. Whether you want to add a rustic touch to your room or need a tasteful way to divide a space, barn doors can slide right into your room decor plans.
