How to pick the right curtains for every room

How to pick the right curtains for every room
Choosing curtains for your bedroom, living room or kitchen can be challenging. To make it easier, your first considerations should be practical. Note which direction the room faces, consider what the room is used for, and plan accordingly. Here are a few tips.

Bedroom curtains
If your bedroom faces west, it’ll be exposed to the glorious rays of the morning sun. If it faces east, your bedroom will stay bright until late in the evening. Consider thick, block-out bedroom curtains that will help prevent the light from disturbing your sleep.

A decoration tip is to install roller blinds behind your curtains, in a complementary colour. This adds an extra element of depth to the room.

Living room curtains
If you have an east-facing living room, and your TV faces your windows, the setting sun’s glare could ruin your latest boxset. Darkening curtains will help keep the light out when you want to lose yourself in a new film.

If reflections in the TV is not an issue, you might want to choose some bright sheer curtains that glow radiant in the daylight. Or maybe select a beautiful, patterned curtain that goes well with your living room design.

Kitchen and bathroom curtains
Venetian blinds are a good idea for kitchens. This because they can easily be wiped down if soapy water manages to escape the sink while you’re doing the dishes. Complement the venetian blinds with a cute window valance.

For bathroom curtains, privacy is also a thing to consider. Choose curtains that cover the whole bathroom window, but still lets the daylight through.
