If you’re in the market for some new curtains, ultimately, they need to match your room colour and style. Styles range from very delicate sheers right through to heavy weight velvet drapes. The style and colour should work with your space, you can opt for quite a subtle look, you could go for a neutral shade or choose curtains to add some colour into the room.

Style and Fabric

Matching curtain fabrics and style to the space. If you have quite a traditional room, you may want to choose heavy weight cotton fabrics, velvet or silk with traditional wooden blinds, sheers for privacy or roman blinds. If you opt for light sheers, solid or printed panels, or even linen curtains for a relaxed space. Swags, valences and similar details are a little more formal. Tab tops, grommets or simple curtain rings are less formal and more modern.


For quite a subtle look, pick a curtain that is slightly darker or lighter than your wall tone. If you prefer a colour that contrasts, choose an accent colour from your room, drawing a shade from rugs, cushions and chairs. You could go for a bold contrast, using your curtains to bring in the new shade; however, keep in your mind that light will filter through the curtains. Warm or rosy tones will create a glowing, cosy space, but shades of blue may create a cooler light.
