How to choose the right curtain color?


Choosing a curtain color can be tough. Take the following steps, write down the first answers that come to your mind or pick your favorite images.

What is the style and look that you are looking for? Is it classic, formal, modern and minimal or casual, relaxing and calming, or elegant and moody? 

Would you like the curtains to be the focal point and to highlight the height of your space? Or would you like the curtain to blend in with your furniture?

Now that you have the answers and you have chosen your favorite image, let's narrow down your choices. 

If you are looking for formal and classic style, you can go either way, blending in or contrast color against the wall color. Image number 4 and 5 are good examples. It is always a good idea to match your curtain color with home decor pieces. A double layer of one sheer and one blackout is a classic and functional choice. 

If you are looking for minimal and modern style, pick a color that is close to you wall color or a slightly darker shade. Sheers and smooth finish fabrics are popular choices for modern homes, similar to the ones shown in image 1. 

If you are looking for a relaxing and calming look, choose a light gray tone shade that will help soften colors in a space, as shown in image 2. Try matching the soft hue with colors in your flooring or furniture pieces. Textured and weaved fabrics are great in bringing softness and coziness.

If you are looking for an elegant and cozy French style, a brown tone color is an easy choice. Brown tone colors are a combination of warmth and muted coziness, from nude to taupe (image 3). They also blend beautifully with wood furniture pieces. French pleating headers would be great for the elegance. 

At the end, there is no wrong choice when picking a curtain color. Remember to enjoy the process and listen to your heart:) Hope the post helped you make a decision.

Loft Curtains have done an fabulous job with my recent order for 2 sets of custom Ripple Fold drapes. From the initial call to request samples to the communication around delivery, the customer service has been great. The product itself is beautiful. As a designer, I have high expectations and I was not disappointed. The fabrication quality is very well done and they hang beautifully. I would also say they offer good value for money for something so custom.

After visiting the photo gallery for inspiration, I ordered some curtains for my dining room. The curtains are beautiful! and arrived earlier than expected. I corresponded with the head of customer service many times throughout the process for help.. I would highly recommend Loft Curtains for high quality product, price, and customer service -- a rare find in today's world.
