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.

We have a south facing window. It’s hot and bright in the summer. We wanted something a little heavier in fabric selection because we live on a busy street heading into town to cut down on traffic noise.The fabric is soft and offers insulation. They lay beautifully across our big window while closed. When tucked back they disappear while stacked neatly into the wall. It’s everything we were looking for. We paired it with a Kirsch Designer Estate Motorized rod. I was apprehensive and Justin answered all the questions I had making it easier to understand how the curtains would work on my rod and with fabrics. Delivered in less than 2 weeks! They were packed properly and ready to hang. I grew up with my mom in the flooring industry. I’ve always wanted a home that had designer features without having a Hollywood budget I didn’t think it was possible to get that look until I found Loft Curtains! Woohoo! In the day, night and before photos included.

This is our second purchase in 5 years (our new puppy decided to eat one of our earlier drape panels). In our experience Loft has quality fabrics, excellent workmanship at a very reasonable price for custom drapery. I was able to get the same fabric from 5 years ago!
