Length and Lining
Before measuring how long you want your drapes or curtains to be, decide how high you want to hang them. Most people choose to hang their curtains or drapes 6 inches above the window, but if you wish to hang them up higher that is possible too. Measure from where you want the curtains to start, to the point where you want them to end. Some like them to hang on the floor a bit more than others – this is completely up to your style preference. Having difficulties with measuring the length and lining of your curtains or drapes? Just contact us and we’ll assist you with this process.
Determine the Color and Fabric of your Curtains
It’s up to you if you want the curtains or drapes to blend in with the décor of your home, or if you want them to be a different colour and really pop. If you decide that you want them to blend in, you can pick a colour that is a bit lighter or darker than the colour of your walls. You can also pick a color that is less dominant in the room, such as the shade of your couch. Think about what will complement the colours in your room and what kind of décor you have in your home. Maybe you have a traditional décor, or maybe a more modern one. Consider the colour of your walls and other furniture and decide what colour would be best to match this. Also think about the fabric that you want for your curtains or drapes. Some fabrics you can wash yourself and some are dry-clean only. Think about this before deciding on a certain fabric, and again keep in mind the décor in your home and try to match this style with the fabric of the curtains or drapes as well.
Privacy and Views
The last tip to consider before deciding on what curtains or drapes to buy is the function you require from them. Do you want to create privacy? Do you want to block light from entering your home? Would you like to insulate your home and reduce heat loss through the windows? These are important questions to ask yourself when picking out the material of your window coverings as some fabrics offer more protection than others.
