The Right Curtains for Your Taree Home

The Right Curtains for Your Taree Home

There are some excellent reasons to choose curtains as your window dressing. They help regulate the temperature inside your home, keeping it cool during the summer and warm during the winter. They also offer privacy when you’re inside your house. The right curtains also look very attractive. Here at Elegant Blinds and Awnings Taree, we have a wide range of window furnishings to suit your needs and your style. If you want curtains in Taree, use this handy guide to help you choose the perfect set for each of your home’s windows.    Consider the Length of the Curtains One of the most important things to think about when it comes to your curtains is the length. Apron length curtains are ideal for windows that have furniture underneath. Floor length curtains are an easy way to make windows and rooms look larger. Finally, puddle length curtains offer a glamorous look and are perfect for low traffic rooms that don’t have children or pets visiting too often.    Think About the Material Curtains come in a huge range of fabrics, with many colours and patterns to choose from. This can feel a bit overwhelming, so knowing how to narrow down your options can really help. First, make sure that whatever you choose matches the look and decor in the room. Then, think about how much light you want to filter through the curtains. Sheers are a wonderful choice if you want to let in natural light without opening them. On the other hand, velvet or blackout curtains make a great choice for your bedroom to block the light when you sleep.    Don’t Forget About Cleaning and Maintenance Another thing to keep in mind is taking care of your curtains. Some materials are dry clean only, which means a bit of a commitment when it comes time to clean them. Other materials can be placed in the washing machine and dryer, making them easier to keep clean on a regular basis. If you don’t want to put in a lot of effort and money to keep your curtains looking their best, a low maintenance fabric like cotton is the best option.   Match the Hardware Don’t forget to consider the hardware you use to hang the curtains. Make sure the curtain rod and holders match with the decor choices in the rest of the room and that they pair well with the curtains themselves too. Choose from plastic, wood or metal hardware for the best look possible for your space.  You can call Elegant Blinds and Awnings Taree or fill out our online enquiry form to organise a consultation with us so you make the best choice of curtains in...

Tips for Choosing The Perfect Curtains

When it comes to the fine details that can really make a difference in home design and interior decoration, something that a lot of people tend to overlook is the importance of curtains. Here at Elegant Blinds, we are of the firm belief that curtains are one of the most important design elements of any room, whether it is a communal living space or a private bedroom. The trick is in making sure that you select the perfect kinds of curtains to suit your existing home decor, because nobody wants to make too many changes to fit a single element in! With that in mind, here are some tips for choosing the perfect curtains in Taree to suit your home. Colour Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that a neutral colour curtain is always the way to go. For some homes, neutral is fine, but you should think of curtains as an opportunity to really inject a pop of colour and personality into a room without doing something drastic like painting or getting new wallpaper. Fabric Fabric is all-important when it comes to curtains. It all depends on what kind of effect you want your curtains to have Heavier fabric will create a more static, serious look in a room, whereas a lighter fabric will be able to play around with the breeze. Length Floor length versus window length is a big consideration when buying curtains. Floor length tends to suit a more elegant, classically luxurious looking decor, whereas window length can be neater and more practical, especially if you are looking to make the most out of a small space whilst still helping it too look roomy.  Machine Wash Friendly It can save you a lot of hassle in the future if you opt for a material that is washing machine friendly. You do not want to have to take curtains to the dry cleaners every time they need freshening up! If you are interested in getting some new curtains in Taree, then please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us here at Elegant Blinds. We always have a wide range of stock available and we are sure that you will find something that suits your needs.
