Buying Curtains Online? Here Are Some Dos & Don’ts

A great way to add personality and glamour to a room is to frame a window with long curtains. Before you start your search for new curtains online, though, there are a few things you should keep in mind. We want you to be completely happy when you purchase your curtains online from us. Today, we’re going to take a closer look at some curtain dos and don’ts for both before and after you buy your new curtains.

DO Think About Your Colours And Patterns

Make sure that you’re thinking long and hard about what patterns and colours you want to use and what you’re already using. Your curtains will take up a lot of visual space and can have a huge impact on the overall look and feel of your room.

DON’T Skimp On The Size Of Your Curtains

Your curtains should always have generous portions of material. Remember, like we’ve said before, your curtains need to be at least twice the width of the window. It’s also crucial that they’re long enough - otherwise they’re going to look truncated. At the very least, they should just barely touch the floor. For a more elegant look, allow a few inches to puddle on the floor at the bottom of the window.

DO Buy Lined Curtain Panels If You Need Temperature Or Light Control

Lined curtain panels are great for controlling the temperature in a room as well as the amount of sunlight that comes in. Basic cotton lining is a great choice, and it still allows a little light to filter through. If you don’t want any light to come into the room, consider blockout curtains.
