While curtains can be the design element that makes a room work, they are one of the most overlooked aspects of an interior.

By choosing the right curtains for your space, you can tie together other decorations in the room, make the room appear larger, and achieve your desired interior theme or mood. By picking custom curtains with the right fabric, length, and color, you can add the perfect finishing touch to your new home.

Choose the right curtain fabric

Curtains have a functional role in your home in addition to looking beautiful. You should select your curtain fabric based on the function of the space.

If you want to keep a bedroom for sleeping, you will need a thicker fabric and style that will cover the entire window. If you want to wake up with light coming through your room, you want fabric that's easier to let in more light.

Custom curtains increase the integrity of the room and filter out intense light. So, before you start looking for curtains, decide how much light you want in your room and what type of fabric can help you get the amount of light you want.

In rooms where more privacy is desired, such as a bedroom, for example, you can choose heavier fabrics like canvas, velvet, and muslin. For spaces like living rooms and kitchens where you want lots of natural light, choose lighter fabrics like chintz, satin, nylon, and calico.

When choosing the right custom curtain fabric, keep in mind that the amount of light in a room has a direct impact on its space. For small spaces where you want to feel bigger, choose curtains with lighter fabrics to let in more light and for less visual space. Thicker fabrics are good choices for rooms that feel harsh due to the sunlight they get or rooms where you want to feel comfortable or moody.

Choose the right curtain length

Curtains are an important visual design element in any room, and their length has a huge visual impact on the size of the room. You don't have to place your curtain rod right above the windows and the curtain seam ends right at the windowsill. The closer you hang a curtain from the ceiling, the larger and more spacious a room will feel. The same goes for the lower the curtain hem hangs under the windowsill.

Before taking out your tape measure, you need to know how you want your room to feel. If your home has a large two-story room, custon curtains can create a sophisticated look.

Spectacular floor-to-ceiling curtains work well in rooms with high ceilings. However, shorter ceilings need more traditional blinds to keep them warm and comfortable.

If you want to make a small room bigger by changing the length of your curtain, hang the curtain rod but let the hem stop at the windowsill. Try to keep the curtain hem from touching the floor, especially if you are using thick fabric, as this will make the room feel crowded.

Choose the right curtain color

Like all aspects of a room's interior, your curtains' color should be a stylistic element of the room that will help achieve the room's desired tone and work with other design elements of the room. The first step in choosing the right color for your custom curtains is to decide whether you want your curtains to stand out or blend into the background. Then take a look at your existing color palette and think about what aspects of that palette will help you achieve the look you want.

If you want your custom curtains to pop, take a look at the accent colors you've chosen for your palette and pick the dominant color. (If you've painted your walls a light color, neutral curtains - especially white linens - can make a good statement.) For curtains that blend into the background, examine the neutral base of your color palette and choose those ones that will frame your windows without looking too ostentatious.

When choosing a curtain color, keep in mind that sunlight can make them fade. Bold patterns and light colors tend to fade faster than dark ones, especially on delicate fabrics. If you like vibrant hues, you can hang a custom curtain liner between the window and the curtain to prevent fading and to keep your curtain in good condition.

Decorating your new home is fun, but when it comes to choosing custom curtains, you might be tempted to take the first available curtain and have it installed to indicate that you have completed your project.
