Tips To Choose the Ideal Curtains

Next to the paints curtains are the most important contributors to the ambience created in a room. The right kind and style of curtains can make the room look larger, broader, warmer and cozier, depending on the way you want it. Most people hang bamboo blinds or roman shades a few inches below the ceiling to give the impression of a much bigger and hence more beautiful window. For glass walls or large windows, ceiling to floor curtains look very beautiful. When drawn back, it’s good to tie the drapes in the middle to give an elegant look.

Venetian blinds can help decide the amount of sunlight that can enter the room. When sunlight is a necessity, go for filter curtains or transparent blue or pink curtains. Most people choose curtains that merge in the color of the wall pain. This can give a uniform velvety look to the room. You could also choose contrasting colors of curtains to draw attention to beautiful windows, green plants or antique lampshades placed near the windows.

It’s usually good to avoid murky, dull colors for curtains. Bright curtains always bring and preserve energy in the house whereas light blue and pink restore a sense of calm and a cool ambience.
