Buyers Guide for Curtains:

Purpose: Determine the purpose of your curtains. Will they be used for privacy, light control, or purely decorative purposes?

Style: Consider the style of your room and choose a curtain style that complements it. For example, if you have a traditional room, choose curtains with classic prints and textures. If you have a modern room, choose curtains with clean lines and minimal details.

Size: Measure the height and width of your window before buying curtains. Curtains that are too short or too long will not look right.

When selecting a fabric, consider your specific needs. For example, if you want to block out light, opt for a heavy fabric such as blockout or triple weave. On the other hand, if you prefer to allow light in, polyester is a popular choice for sheers due to its durability, ease of cleaning, and ability to hold its colour and freshness over time.

Colour: Choose a colour that complements your room's colour scheme. If your room has neutral colours, choose curtains in a bold or vibrant colour to add interest. If your room has bold colours, choose curtains in a neutral colour to balance it out.

Lining: Consider adding a lining to your curtains to protect them from sunlight and to add insulation.

Accessories: Choose accessories that complements your modern curtain style, like sleek metal rods with contemporary finials or minimalistic track with a clean design.

Budget: Set a budget for your curtains and stick to it. There are curtains available at all price points, so you're sure to find something that fits your budget.

By considering these factors, you can choose curtains that not only look great but also meet your needs.


Do curtains provide thermal insulation?

Yes, curtains can provide a thermal insulation by trapping a layer of air between the window and the curtain fabric. This layer of air helps to regulate the temperature of your home and can reduce your energy bills.

Are there areas of the home where I shouldn’t use Curtains?

While curtains can be used in most areas of the home, they may not be suitable for use in high-moisture areas such as bathrooms or kitchens. This is because curtains can absorb moisture and may become mouldy or damp over time.

Can I pair curtains with shutters or blinds?

Yes, curtains can be paired with shutters or blinds to add an extra layer of privacy and light control. You can choose to use curtains alone, or pair them shutters or blinds for added functionality.

How do I clean my curtains?

The best way to clean your curtains will depend on the fabric. Some curtains can be machine washed, while others will need to be dry cleaned. Check the care label of your curtains for specific instructions.
