Getting the proper curtains are essential.The main things to consider when buying your curtains are deciding in the type of fabric and colour, the material will help tell you how well your curtains are going to function and hold up over time. If the material is too heavy, they may not fold crisply when drawn. Next thing you need to be aware of is the length and lining, measuring your window properly is very important, as we don’t want the curtain to be too short or too long.

It is necessary to have a mix in splashes of colour. The room colour has a way of affecting your mood, therefore if you want to be in the best of spirits every day I suggest you go for a bold colour. Colour is powerful, healing, stimulating and fun. Different types of colours have different effects, for example cool colours are calming and warm colours are stimulating. Therefore according to whatever colour you pick, it is necessary to co-ordinate the furniture colour, the wallpaper and the curtains.
