Measurements are important. Measure the windows to determine the length and width of the future curtains. Make sure to take into consideration all the nuances to get the right size. Will the curtains be long or medium? Will they hang down from the ceiling to make it look higher?


When choosing the curtain color make sure it fits the room’s color scheme. If the room is light and monochrome bright-colored or patterned curtains can add a splash of color and detail into the room. If the room is small keep them simple and monochrome. If the color scheme is busy and filled with patterns opt for single color in curtains.


It’s always best to choose organic fabrics in all home products. It doesn’t have to be expensive to look great. Choose for curtains in quality fabrics as they are more durable and better-looking.

If a single set of curtains is not enough choose two sets one in winter and the other one in summer style. Thus the home will get an instant season makeover.
