Thinking of revamping your home? Or perhaps you want a little style change in your current space? Whatever is the dilemma, the solution is relatively simple. One such solution is changing curtains. If you have a neutral interior space and want it to match a certain theme, then changing the curtains is the simplest answer. Now, while buying curtains can be a little difficult, we have mentioned the top things to consider before your purchase.

1. Interior Style

Drapes are super important in an interior décor perspective. So before you purchase any living room curtains or bedroom curtains, note down if you want the complete look of the space to be modern or traditional. Another important factor you can consider is to decide who exactly will be occupying the room the longest with their age.

2. Purpose and Function

Before you actually go shopping, research on the exact purpose you want your drapes to have. Curtains can serve a larger purpose from privacy to sun shading, to simply providing a pleasing way to decorate an opening.

3. Length and Lining

When you decide on the purpose and function, also note down opening sizes and how long do you want your curtains to be. Balcony openings require floor length curtains but windows can have curtains that are just below the sill. The purpose of the curtain is also important to see what and if any kind of lining will be required during purchase.

4. Colour and Fabric


When you have finalized on the measurements, you can go shopping and see what kind of colour theme would suit your room. Keep in mind the different curtain fabrics require different linings and their methods of cleaning are also very different before you buy anything.

5. Type


Last but not the least is the type of curtains. After you have a fixed idea of the person, their age, interests and style, it is easier to choose a particular type of curtain design. Sometimes a person’s preference can be blinds rather than curtains. Many times people prefer Venetian blind or roman blind, while many like the eyelet curtains for their look.

The choices are endless but its easier to go through the selection process rather than regretting a hasty purchase!
