How to choose bedroom curtains

Carefully selected curtains can elevate the overall aesthetic of your bedroom.

For many of us, our bedrooms are our sanctuaries. They are a place to rest and recuperate after a hard day’s work, a space for true relaxation. And when it comes to decorating a bedroom, there are many things to consider. Each person’s aesthetic goals are different, and the look that suits you best will depend on your personal style and what you hope to achieve with your design choices.

The right choice of curtains can make a big difference to the overall look — they can set the tone and colour palette of your room and create a sense of style. Whether you decide to go for fun designs or bold colours, sheer fabric or thicker, black-out curtains, there are many options to choose from. Here are our top tips for choosing curtains that best suit your bedroom…

1. Consider privacy

When it comes to creating a beautiful, restful space, privacy is a key factor. Bear this in mind when you select curtains for your bedroom. Some great options include black-out curtains, which provide optimal privacy as well as light and noise reduction; layered curtains; and thicker fabrics.

2. Play with colour

One of the best ways to achieve a cohesive look in your bedroom is to match your curtains with other design elements in your room. If, for example, you are happy with the current shade of your walls and bedding, you can choose curtains that blend well with your existing colour palette. Alternatively, you can combine bold linens and decorative items with more neutral curtains or vice versa.

3. Explore different fabrics

There are so many fabrics to choose from and it can feel overwhelming to make the right choice. Ultimately, you need to find a fabric that suits the overall aesthetic of your room, and which works for your particular needs. Some of the most popular curtain fabrics for bedrooms include cotton, which is lightweight and ling-lasting; silk, which is delicate and well-suited to a romantic and luxurious look; velvet, which is heavy and thick and often ideal for those who would like to add a sense of luxury to their space.

4. Think about the maintenance

When choosing a fabric for your bedroom curtains, it is worth considering what level of maintenance each option requires. If you would like a low-maintenance fabric, you might opt for cotton or a synthetic fabric that can be machine or hand-washed. If you are not too worried about choosing a high-maintenance fabric, then you’ll have plenty of options available to you. Wool, sheer and silk curtains, for example should be dry cleaned in order to maintain their condition and colour. It’s also advisable that you vacuum these types of curtains regularly to avoid a build-up of dust and dirt.
