How to Choose the Right Curtain Style For Your Home

Many of us share a common love, which is decorating. Decorating can be a lot of fun and exciting, but it can also be therapeutic. It instantly changes the look and feel of your space, completely shifting the energy in the room. Commonly people start decorating by rearranging furniture, changing the color of the paint on the walls, even adding new wall art or family pictures. One of the easiest ways to decorate and change the entire look of the room is by changing the curtains in the room. Curtains can completely transform any room. Let's look at a few rooms and get a couple of ideas to decorate them.

Kids Bedroom Curtains:

We will first start with a kid's bedroom. One of best curtains to use in a kid's room are blackout curtains. Blackout curtains will block out all the light in the windows. Sunlight proves to be a big distraction in the morning and during nap times for kids. There are a few options in blackout curtains that are not only functional but stylish as well. You can find cotton blackout curtains in some nice contemporary styles that are suitable for both boys and girls. There are fancier yet affordable options such as faux silk blackout curtains. These curtains are more suitable for young girls and teens. You can also find some blackout roman shade curtains that will fit inside of the window itself for a neat appearance.

Adult Bedroom Curtains:

Next we will look at an adult's bedroom. Whether it be a guest bedroom or a master bedroom, there are more options to decorate in this space. If you would like to add a romantic atmosphere in your master bedroom, look for higher end options like silk curtains or balloon curtains. Both will add a soft elegant feel into the room. There are endless color options in both styles, so matching with your current décor should be no problem. You can even have blackout added to either of these curtains if light is a problem in this room. Linen curtains are nice to add in a guest bedroom. They are casual and bring on a relaxed atmosphere, which I am sure your guest will appreciate. Once again, you can find linen curtains with or without blackout if that is needed.

Living Room Curtains:

Living rooms are a great place to add some high-end curtains. Here you can splurge on custom curtains to ensure you get the proper lengths to enhance your room and give the allusion of a grander space. Some nice curtains to add to a living room are velvet curtains or silk curtains. Both styles showcase elegance and give a rich appearance. If you are trying to create a formal living room, be sure to add tassels and trims to your curtains. This will also be a nice place to layer curtains, by adding a set of sheer curtains behind your main drapery panels. If you prefer a more relaxed living area, or may have a high traffic area in this space you can add nice contemporary cotton curtains that can be washed.

Kitchen Curtains:

Last we will look at the kitchen area. Adding curtains in your kitchen is a must. You can find a lot of nice and affordable valance curtains or roman shade curtains. These are best in the kitchen as they serve both style and function, but will not be in the way of the dirt and debris that a kitchen can bring. Some popular curtain styles are roman shade curtains, and balloon valances. They are available in cottons which are washable, and there are many color and design available.

So, next time you are in the mood to decorate, be sure to use curtains to change the space. Take in account of your current décor and see how you can add to it. Look for existing common color schemes in each room. Changing the look of your room is as easy as hanging a new set of curtains.
