Choosing the right curtains isn’t always as easy as it seems but the good news is that Half Price Drapes is here to make the process easier for you. Check out these five simple tips that can help you choose the right curtains for your home.
1. Start with the décor you have
The first step is look around at the rest of your décor in the room you’re decorating. Do you see one or more colors used over and over again? Does the room feel dark or light? Do you have dark woods, steel, or other materials? Think about texture too. Remember that your curtains can either complement what’s there or bring in a new element.
2. Choose the right fabric for the room
This doesn’t just mean choosing a fabric that’s the right color or pattern – it means a fabric that will work for your needs. For example, a large picture window overlooking a large private backyard may be covered in sheer draperies while a similar window that looked over a busy street would need curtains that offered more privacy.
3. Consider the trends
At Half Price Drapes, we never recommend doing something simply because it’s popular. The reality is that trends go in and out of style but you’ll have your draperies for years to come. However, that doesn’t mean that you can’t look to the trends for inspiration. We find it to be helpful because it gives you a better idea of what’s out there and available.
4. Think about blackout
We offer some incredible blackout curtains that can help you ensure that you get the right amount of light in a room. For example, if you have a bedroom with a large window and you don’t want to get woken up as soon as the sun rises – or you want to go to bed in the summers before the sun sets – then blackout curtains are a must.
5. Made to measure curtains are a great choice
At Half Price Drapes, you can get made to measure curtains for a fraction of what you’d pay elsewhere. How? Because we offer you factory direct prices. Get the right look and the right by letting us cut them just for you. When you want high quality, custom, affordable curtains, you want to work with us.
