Curtains can make or break the entire look of your home. It’s a crucial element that sets the tone and atmosphere, as well as affects the comfort inside. With the range of options you have, it might be confusing to choose the best one for the kind of home you have. Since the curtains have to go together with the personality of your home and add spice to it, you need to consider several factors before buying.

Shopping for Curtains

Fabric

Curtains come in a variety of fabric. You can choose from lightweight cotton, brocades, and heavy velvets depending on the mood and theme you want your room to have. The material can also affect the amount of light streaming in. Heavier fabrics look good in traditional rooms. Sheer fabrics, on the other hand, suit Philadelphia homes with minimalistic décor.

Color

When it comes to color, you need to consider the shade of your walls. It has to complement the walls so as not to become an eyesore. For a bolder and more daring look, you can choose a hue that contradicts the color of the walls and furniture. This will make the curtains the focus of the room.

Pattern

Choosing between prints and solids is another important decision to make. Depending on the look of your home, you can mix and match. Printed curtains are the best choice when the furnishings are in solid color and vice-versa. You can also blend printed curtains with solid furniture that’s partnered with printed cushions and area rugs, among others. To create a modern space, you can use curtains with geometric patterns and quirky prints. For a classic and traditional touch, florals will do.

Length

Curtain lengths vary to create a certain looks. For instance, using longer curtains can bring out a dramatic appeal as the drapes pool into a puddle on the floor. Shorter curtains, on the other hand, especially those that end at the sill of smaller windows, can bring out a classic feel. In case there are kids around the house, it’s more practical to go for curtains that are a couple of inches above the floor.

You should never buy just about any curtain. Just because it looks good at the shop doesn’t mean it would go well with your home. You have to consider these factors and go to a reliable provider of window treatments to make it work.
