Tips for Investing in Curtains

Things to think about when purchasing curtains

They can transform an entire room. However, if aspects such as color or fabric, line, and length are not right they could break the room. With so many decisions you have to take, how do you narrow your choices to ensure you get something that you love and your friends and family do too?

Colour and fabric

Materials add texture to room and influence how well Curtains function and hold up over time. If they’re too heavy, they’ll ruin their operating systems. Too light, and they will not fall or sit properly. When we design and install curtains, we take into consideration the way each fabric drapes and pleats against each window. If the fabric is flared the way it should, it’s not recommended. It’s also important to remember that sun exposure fades certain fabrics more than other types of fabric. Therefore, unless you enjoy altering the style of your home regularly Bright colors should usually be avoided.

We suggest a neutral color palette that fits in harmony with your style overall, be aware that lighter hues reflect light, while darker shades absorb heat. Fabrics like linen, silk, faux silk and velvet, are probably your best option due to the manner in which they hang. If you’re looking for something that is more durable which will block out light and keep in the heat, textiles like velvet, suede, tapestry or tweed will do the job.

Line and length

In the process of installing Sawade curtain using Country Blinds Our team is aware of three factors:

How high do you want your curtains to be hung from the wall?

How high do you want your curtains to fall?

How wide are you looking to make your curtains?

Size
