Here are ten factors in considering window treatments for your project.
1) Color and texture
One of the most important aspects to picking the right curtains and drapes is deciding on the drapery fabric and color. Silk and velvet are great options for a formal space while more easily washable textures like rayon blends and cotton sateen are a great choice for a kid’s room or den. We source the best materials to ensure that no matter the fabric you choose, it will fit perfectly with your space.
2) Prints and patterns
While some designers like solid colors, others prefer a print or pattern on their curtains. For most designs, a solid color for drapes is the best choice if you have patterned furniture in the room, and the opposite is true if you have solid colored furniture. You don’t want the visual scheme to be too busy or too plain.
3) Length of curtains
Whether your curtains are floor length or break slightly at the floor, it all depends on the style of the room. Use our curtain measuring guide to help you know what length you need. The classic, tailored look of floor length curtains is great if you are opening and closing the curtains a lot because they will always fall into place. For more decorative curtains in a formal setting, it is natural to have them break slightly when hitting the floor.
4) Width of curtains
The width of the curtain material will differ depending on whether they will be used as a decorative piece versus a fully closed and more functional piece. Speak to one of our window treatment specialists to learn more.
5) Where to hang the curtain frame
You can play optical tricks with how you decide to mount your curtains in relation to the top of the window frame. The feeling of a taller window can be achieved by anchoring the framing directly above the window (6 to 8 inches), while simulating a wider window can be achieved by mounting the curtains wider than the frame of the window itself.
6) Top hems of your curtains
There are a wide range of styles for the top hems of your curtains and each provides the room with a particular look. Whether you are looking for a sleek, casual, formal, or feminine appearance, The Great Curtain Company can help.
7) Curtain rods
Curtain rods also play an important role in giving off a certain aesthetic. The material and style you choose says a lot about the overall feel of the space. Our specialists can help with each detail to ensure unity and thoughtfulness.
Tiebacks can be a great way to let in more light and offer a swooping, elegant appearance. Not all curtains look good with tiebacks, and it is important to pick the right fabric to utilize this style correctly.
9) Blinds vs. curtains
Uncertain if you want the soft fabric look of curtains versus the firm, sleek look of blinds? Our selection at The Great Curtain Company ensures you find exactly what you’re looking for.
