5 Ways to Ensure You Get the Perfect Curtains for Your Home

1. Measure Carefully

Measure the width and length of each window. You want your curtains to be wide enough to cover the window frame but not so wide that they look too heavy or bulky. Measure the height of each window from the floor up to where you want your curtains to hang. Measure how tall each window frame is, so you know how much space there needs to be between the bottom of each curtain panel and its respective side rail.

2. Consider Your Home’s Design Style

There are many different styles of curtains that you can choose from, so it's essential to find a style that complements the design of your home. For example, if you have modern decor with sleek furniture and minimalistic decor, you may want to consider curtain styles that match this aesthetic.

3. Select the Right Fabric

When choosing curtains for windows, the material significantly impacts the room's overall appearance. It determines how much sunlight you want streaming in and sets the mood for your home. Each fabric has a different tone to it, so make sure to select one that matches your interiors.

4. Pay Attention to Your Window Frame

The shape of your window will determine if you need straight or boxed curtains, which can be a bit more difficult to find than regular ones. Even if you have tall windows with extra-wide frames, there are several options available in many styles and colors that suit your home decor perfectly. Also, the material used to create your window frame can affect how the drapes look around it.

5. Select the Right Color and Pattern

The color of your window curtain designs should ideally match the rest of the furnishings. You must decide whether you want a printed or solid curtain. Choose a design that complements your wall color and the rest of the interior. You could use quirky prints and geometric patterns in a modern space, whereas florals would be more appropriate if you’re going for a classic and traditional look.


It can seem like quite a daunting task if you don’t know where to start, but by knowing what kind of window treatment will work best for your home and how to choose the right type of fabric, finding the perfect curtains should be an easy job!
