INTRODUCTION TO LIVING ROOM CURTAINS
Curtains are an essential part of any home's design since they can radically transform the look of a space.
Color, shape, and even fabric type may make a difference, especially when effectively paired with the surrounding furnishings.
In this example, we'll look at the qualities and different styles of living room curtains.
Indeed, being one of the most used rooms in the house, the one where guests are greeted, dinners are planned, and talks are held, it must best reflect the hosts' personalities.
However, it is all too easy to make the mistake of adorning it with faceless and impersonal drapes.
How do you go about doing it? The most important thing is to know exactly what you want to accomplish.
In fact, if we imagine a large and cheerful living room with mostly light-colored furniture, white or neutral-colored curtain fabric in a classic or panel style would be ideal.
If we want a warm and welcome ambiance in our living room, perhaps with a slight ethnic flavour, we should use more colourful curtains with bold and decisive hues.
Alternatively, if we want the romantic ambience of country houses, pastel colours, possibly with curled curtains, will be an excellent choice. To put it another way, the possibilities are absolutely limitless.
HOW DO I MAKE MY DECISION?
As previously said, the decision must be taken while considering the remainder of the room.
To begin, keep in mind that the living room curtains should be different from the textiles used in the other rooms of the property.
The curtains must, after all, be appropriate for the characteristics of the room in which they are installed, and the living room cannot be compared to a bedroom, a double bedroom, a kitchen, or a bathroom.
As a result, the living room curtains must stand out in the house due to their uniqueness, as they beautify the room where the entire family gathers as well as friends, relatives, and visitors.
So, if we're in a bright living room, we should avoid curtains with too powerful and bright colours, as they tend to fade in the sun.
In fact, in this case, it's better to go with more neutral hues that will blend in with the furniture. Fabrics that last longer, such as velvet, linen, or silk, are the best choices.
In any event, it will be necessary to properly measure the window or French window that you wish to adorn before purchase.
Starting at the top and working down to the desired length in relation to the floor, take measurements. Remember to add ten cm on each sides when measuring the width.
ARE THERE ANY FACTORS THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION?
There are various elements to consider in order to ensure that we select the curtains that best complement the decor of our home.
In truth, choosing curtains, especially for the living room, must be taken lightly!
Let's take a look at all of these variables together.
The brightness of the environment is the first consideration when picking a living room curtain.
In fact, if you have a spacious and light living room, you can use coloured, plain, or patterned curtains. Heavier materials are ideal for decreasing the amount of light coming in from the outside.
Furthermore, you must carefully examine your option based on the peculiarities of your property and the impression you want to accomplish.
If the living room isn't very large, the exposure isn't helping, and the natural light's brightness is low, neutral light-colored curtains that allow the sun's rays to pass through are required.
White and cream are good light-reflecting and enhancing colours. Furthermore, additional illumination in the living area creates a wonderful sense of spaciousness. It brings happiness and promotes mental and physical health.
After assessing the brightness of your home, you must consider the style of your furnishings while selecting appropriate living room curtains for the overall image.
Because of the limits imposed by space and poor light, colour selection may be limited, but you may use your imagination when it comes to the lines and shapes of the living room curtains.
