Choosing Window Treatments: What to Consider as You Pick Out New Curtains

Window TreatmentsNew window treatments, especially curtains, can instantly breathe life into any room. If you’re in the midst of picking out new curtains for your bedroom, living area, or any other room in your home, it’s essential that you consider their color, fabric, and length.

  • Color- As you pick out your new window treatments, keep in mind that sunlight will fade the color of the fabric over time. For this reason, if you are putting up new curtains in a room that receives a lot of sunlight, it’s best to pick a lighter color. Likewise, if you’re putting up curtains in a darker room, you can get away with a lighter shade. 
  • Fabric- The fabric your window treatments are made out of plays a large role in their overall look. Typically, linen, faux silk, silk, and velvet are the best material choices for curtains because they will hang nicely. Keep in mind that any type of fabric can be lined with an insulating material in order to keep out the cold. 
  • Length- If you’d like to hang the panels at a point that is higher than the actual window, you can add height to the room. This method is often best in larger living spaces or in dining areas. Remember that the higher above the window frame your curtains are hung, the more dramatic the overall look will be.
