3 Questions to Have in Mind When Shopping for New Custom Curtains

Buying new curtains for your house or a particular room is not an easy task. There are so many colour combinations that can go well with your wall colour and the rest of the décor. What's more, once you hit the store, you will find numerous designs that will most likely overwhelm you. That's why you need to have an idea of what you want before shopping. This way, you can avoid impromptu purchases and ensure that you get quality curtains in appealing designs that will increase the curb appeal of your home. Below are three questions that will help you choose the best window restorations for your home.

What's the style of your home? 

With so many colour and design options available today, the style of your home will help you narrow down the curtain options on the market. What's more, if you want a custom design, you need to ensure that it blends in with the rest of the décor. So, think about the style of your home. Is it contemporary, modern, mid-century, industrial, or transitional? Once you know your style, make custom window drapes that reflect this style. For example, for an informal, laid-back look, consider pattered draperies in bright, appealing shades.

What's the size of your windows?

The size of the windows will determine what size curtains to make. The best thing about custom curtains is that you can get them in the exact measurements of your windows. Note that curtains that are ill-fitting, that is, those that are smaller or bigger than the windows, will be an eyesore in your home. So, you need to take measurements of the windows and take them to the designer. Do not make a visual estimate. All you need is a tape measure, and you can quickly check the width and vertical length of the windows. Correctly fitting drapes feel right, and they can dramatically improve the appearance of a room.

How will you clean the curtains?

Maintenance is a critical step in determining the durability of your curtains. So, it is not worth investing in nice curtains only to ruin them during cleaning. Think about the technique you will be using and choose a material that is best cleaned that way. Some materials should be dry-cleaned, others machine-washed, and some hand-washed. Using the wrong technique can shrink or stretch the material and ruin the appearance of the drapes. Choose a material that you can comfortably clean and make sure that you have the necessary equipment for the task.

Style, fit, and maintenance are essential things to have in mind when making custom curtains for your home. Contact an expert designer who will help you make the best choice of window treatments for your house.

About Me

Hello! My name is Tina and this is my new blog. I am lucky enough to live in a wonderful home which has a large garden. I spent a long time learning all I could about home and garden design. I had the interior of my home renovated and new trees planted in the garden. However, I still felt that something was missing. One day, my friend came around to visit and suggested that I install a small pond and a fountain in the garden. I contacted a contractor who came around and advised me on the best features. I hope you like my blog.
